Quantum Vibe is updated with new pages every Monday through Friday.
The Curse of the Broken Database
Another Monday morning, and another crash of the AWS database that drives our web site story content (and news). This makes the 3rd time this has happened since moving the web site to AWS. We are continuing to work on a solution. Hopefully, it won't be to move to yet another service provider. We'll see. Thanks to our intrepid readers who brought the problem to our attention.
Well that sucked...
Sometime early this morning, 10/9/2013, the cloud service we run the Big Head Press web site and email service on went down unexpectedly. We have not been told what caused the outage yet. The web site is functioning again, serving today's Quantum Vibe update. Though email is not functional at at this time, we hope it will be back soon. Look for us on facebook for further updates or to send us a message.
Update: All systems seem to be working again. Email is getting caught up now. We thank everyone for their patience this morning and will keep looking for ways to make the site less vulnerable to single points of failure problems.

Hernandez: What about his war record?
Ashanti: Nothing outstanding. e
Hernandez addresses Santos.
Hernandez: Captain Santos, you could not help being born into servitude to GENSAXWAL but you did willingly buy stock. Otherwise you don't seem like a bad fellow.
Hernandez: Your command is forfeit, of course, along with personal property you keep on board. But your person will not be harmed.
Santos is both surprised and outraged. Hernandez looks nonplussed
Santos: Forfeit …? You are stealing this ship?!
Hernandez: What is the matter? Do you think her not worth stealing?
