TEC Back (Hopefully)
It looks like some instability entered our backups prior to the problems last night on TEC. As a result, we were forced to revert back to Friday evening's backup. (Fortunately, we store *lots* and *lots* of backups.) There's a 95% chance that things will be good at this point; we've never seen a backup have problems after it was running for an hour, so by 3pm PT or so, we'll up that 100%.
Due to some problems in TEC last night, we are currently reverting to the 4pm EDT backup. This will take a bit.
TEC is back up and running now, hopefully in a cleaner state.
TEC Going Down
This is a reminder that TEC is going down for scheduled maintenance starting at 9.30am PT. It should hopefully be three hours or less.
We'll be taking TEC down at 9.30am on Tuesday June 18th for some scheduled maintenance.
Everything Back Up
Skotos came back up ~10.45 after we replaced the power supply in our user database machine. Today we also replaced a power supply in our mail machine and upgraded the memory in the machine hosting TEC and RPGnet's read-only MySQL. Whew!
Skotos Currently Down
Skotos is currently down due to the power supply in our user auth machine dying. We're working on it.
RPGnet Slowdown Planned for Thursday Afternoon
I'll be doing some work on RPGnet's mail server and one of its MySQL servers on Thursday, from ~1pm PT to ~3pm PT. The site should keep running in the interim, but it will likely be slow due to the loss of one MySQL server and mail will not be delivered during that time.
TEC Downtime Planned for Thursday Afternoon
I am planning to take down the TEC machine starting around 1.45pm PT on Thursday afternoon and hopefully completing by 3pm PT or so. This is to upgrade its memory, which will hopefully improve how well the machine works.
I'm not expecting any troubles, but you can never tell when you take a machine, actually powering it off (as I will to swap out the memory).
Skotos Cert Updated
We should have a working security certificate again.
