Forums Reversion

The cloud server that hosts the main Skotos web site and the forums experienced a hardware failure on Saturday morning that unfortunately led to severe database corruption. Several attempts to restore it failed.

This led us to our backups, but the timing was a bit unfortunate. Since the failure occurred on a weekend morning, we didn't see it until after a new backup occurred, which contained the corrupted data, and which removed our previous daily backup. This forced us to our weekly backup, which was unfortunately at the end of its time: six days old.

So, the forums are back, but we had a six-day reversion.

This should not have affects on the rest of the site, since the majority of our data is saved in our main-user-database or our games, all on remote machines.

  • Connection!!

    Since Laz just sent me an email poking me, I figured I'd hop and and give everyone a poke to let you all know that I'm still here!

    I've been having trouble connecting to the game due to a new network firewall that I can't seem to get through.

    Or maybe Vista just sucks I'm not quite sure WHAT the problem is yet, but I could connect before the network stuff got changed, and now I can't.

    I've begged my brilliant father to come over and fix it for me, but that might not happen for a little bit of time, so I'm offline until I get it figured out.

    Or if anyone has any suggestions my MSN is dove_falcon@hotmail.com. Feel free to poke me back! Sorry to anyone I had ongoing plot with!! I'll be back and running ASAP!

    I think Monique had a similar issue when she got Vista a while back...

    Glad it was a computer problem and not something more serious, you will have some IG email to deal with when you manage to get back on.

          Vista likes me. Guess because Vista's a b**ch, and I tend to be one...

          Oh, and it runs my Fable: TLC game really well. And my downloaded You Tube videos...

            I know it's completely oppisite of vitsa :P
            But when I upgraded to leapord, I experienced similar problems.
            I just went into the inernet provider's properties and re-set my enabled websites and shut down my computer for 10seconds then restarted it.
            I also gathered some websites you might want to peek at, they might help:
            1
            2
            VistaFirewallControl is completely based on Windows Filtering Platform (WFP), as the result some WFP specifics should be taken into consideration. _Any_ initial access attempt of _any_ unlisted application is rejected. Unfortunately, The rejection is the only way to detect new application access by catching the blocking notification. Probably it is not a bad choice, as the firewall should block any malware trying to send everything on the start.
            After the rejection the default zone (DisableAll only for free version) is applied immediately and you are shown with "Edit Program" dialog to choose a zone. Pressing Apply (or ApplyOnce), the chosen zone is applied.
            Usually applications make several attempts to reestablish the connection so everything goes "smoothly". Unfortunately, some applications make only one attempt, so you have to force "reconnection" manually. Hopefully it occurs only once, while the application is not listed only.
            Hope this helps some. I haven't been keeping up to date with my own PC, lately.

              Vista and IE Do not, I repeat, Vista and IE do NOT go hand in hand when it comes to the Alice add ons you need to play skotos games. That's where clients like MUSHclient comes in for me.. It works better. Or, you can do firefox.
              In the end, when all is said and done, the shadow of the day will embrace the world in grey. The sun will rise again for you someday, but today, let the world stay grey. We're forever marching, forever fighting. For one night, let the world stay grey. I promise one day the sun shall rise again... just for you.
