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
Another busy concourse – this one with a very high ceiling, and more plants. Nicole is in the lead, walking excitedly, as Seamus struggles to keep up in his powered chair.
Seamus: Slow down, Nicole, I can't keep your pace.
Nicole: We're 5 minutes late! Can't that buggy go faster?
Nicole pauses for Seamus to catch up. Seamus is looking cranky, Nicole rolls her eyes.
Seamus: And if this buggy breaks down from over-taxing, are you ready to drag me around this station?
Nicole: I'm sure I can find a perambulator to fit you.
Medium close-up on Nicole, turning happily towards the voice coming from OP right.
Voice: Perambulator? Nicole, is there something you haven't told me?
Medium shot of Nicole's mom, Vanessa Oresme. She is of Central African descent, physically fit, high cheek-bones, arched eybrows, may look familiar.
Nicole (OP): MOM!
Vanessa: Darling! You brought your walrus!
