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.

Hari and Antigone exchange glances.
Hari: You know, I'm no Luddite, but I think this holographic technology has gotten way out of hand.
Antigone: Me too.
Now it's Antigone's turn to go, she walks away from the group and waves.
Hari: Can we give you a lift, Ms. Stone?
Antigone: No, I'm good. The S&HR office is only a couple of blocks from here, and I need to file a report.
Nicole: Good-bye, Antigone.
Inside Hari's limo, Hari, Seamus, Nicole and Buford.
Hari: I know it's only mid-afternoon but there's an excellent Brazilian-style restaurant in my building, if anyone's interested in dinner.
Nicole: Real food? Count me in.
Buford: Yes, please.
Nicole and Seamus
Nicole: So how soon do we leave Luna?
Seamus: Tomorrow afternoon, as soon as we get Ms. Beltran's travel papers.
Nicole and Hari.
Nicole: Hari, you've been great, but I hope you understand why I'm anxious to leave this rock.
Hari: Quite all right, my dear. Lately I've been having similar thoughts.
