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.

Seamus: Dr. Sharkisian is on the mend.
Seamus: Has Mr. Copperton regained consciousness yet, Charles?
Seamus and the Beltape (Charles) standing at Hari's bedside. Charles is holding up a small scanning device.
Charles: No, and there's something fery odd about t'is fellow you should see for yourself.
Charles: T'is is a holo-field suppressor ...
Looking down past Seamus and Charles at Hari, with the scanner aimed at Hari's head and shoulders. The field suppressor reveals an android head and shoulders underneath the projected face and clothing.
Charles: ... and as you can see ...
Seamus: Geryon's teeth!
Two-shot of Seamus and Charles. Seamus is staring at the android.
Seamus: He looks familiar -- where have I seen that face before?
Charles: I'm afraid most androids look alike to me.
