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.
The Transcript For This Page
Nicole is sitting on the edge of her acceleration couch, looking pensive. Seamus, still reclined in his but without the straps on, has his Watson-tablet propped on his belly, reading it.
Seamus: Something wrong?
Exterior shot of Spanish Wells rocketing through space (although the burners aren't glowing as hot as they were the first time we saw the ship).
Nicole: I don't think it was a good idea for us to set up a press conference and then bail on it.
Two-shot of Nicole and Seamus.
Nicole: I'd think burning a bunch of journos is not really good public relations.
Seamus: Oh, don't worry – I found a fill-in who knows how to handle journos.
Cut to a stage in a room back at Helios Base. Enry (the Dispatcher) is behind the podium addressing a throng of journos. One of them is Claud Southend.
Claud: WY IZ SUN-DYVER GURL AFRAYD 2 FAYS TEH MEDIAZ?
Enry: Have you taken a look in the mirror lately, chrome-dome? I can barely stand to face you myself.
