Downtime Report: Wednesday Night

We had an abrupt and unannounced downtime for all games and services starting sometime after 9pm PT on Wednesday evening. This was due to a massive power outage at our cloud computing facility of the sort that redundant systems are supposed to ensure never happen. After about an hour they were able to diagnose that the power was out. It took a few more hours for them to start restoring service.

At this moment, everything is back up except for Ironclaw and TEC. At the rate they're restoring things, I hope those will be back up in the next 15-30 minutes, but it's entirely in their hands.

As is typically the case with a sudden reboot, TEC and GR have to be rolled back. This is already done with GR. The TEC rollback should be just a few hours due to the more recent backups recently instituted, but I need to get the machine back before I can verify that.

Update: Ironclaw and TEC are now back too. The TEC rollback was 2.5 hours, from 9.30pm PT (when everything crashed) to 7.00 pm PT.

  • Roving pack of dogs in Alpha

    A few minutes ago I was accosted by three dogs. Bites were suffered, but I did shoot one of them with my pulse rifle. I am not feeling well. Suspect they carry something, or are outright infected.

    These dogs have no tags and will appear friendly at first, but that immediately fades when they get close.

    Please don't engage them. Get somewhere safe, and spare yourself the pain of being sick. Use the Train, your apartment, or anywhere else you can get a human-only door between yourself and them. Regular elevators in the other buildings are NOT recommended.
