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
Seamus, Vanessa, Nicole seated at a restaurant table. Décor looks like an actual Italian bistro. Wine has been served, as have salads, but no main course yet.
Seamus: I must say, this Caesar dressing is quite good.
Nicole: Everything here is. I like the atmosphere of the place, too.
Nicole: So what is it you need to tell me?
Closer 2-shot of Vanessa and Nicole. Nicole is holding her half-finished wine glass.
Vanessa: I haven't finished my wine, darling.
Nicole: Quit stalling. Or were all your lectures about honest dealing just a load of brack?
Vanessa puts her wine glass down, and steels herself for a confession.
Vanessa: Very well, my child.
Vanessa: Remember how you asked who your father is, and I explained that as a clone you don't have a father?
Nicole: Yes … ?
Three-shot of Seamus, Vanessa and Nicole. Nicole does a take. Seamus smiles and wiggles his fingers at her.
Vanessa: Well, in fact, you have eleven fathers, genetically speaking.
Vanessa: And this walrus here is one of them.
