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.

Cut to the table with the woman Exec and her valets. She is sitting erect, self-confident; the valets are hunched over, depressed. Some other people at nearby tables glance disapprovingly at the valets.
Seamus: The Associates are tuned to smell repellant, not just to others, but especially to themselves.
Seamus and Nicole, who has a mouthful of food.
Seamus: Imagine what life would be like if with every breath you wanted to hate yourself and love your oppressor.
Seamus continues eating. Nicole finds she doesn't want to swallow the food in her mouth.
Nicole: I think I'm done with eating now.
