Server outage September 2, 2014 Central
« on: 09/03/2014 06:48 am »
So the one night I go to bed early due to a cold and I get up to "site's down" e-mails. Beats any need for a morning coffee, I can tell you!  :o

This was a very annoying and unfortunate incident where the servers were up, but the public IP accesses had failed at the host - whatever that means. Mark sorted it out.

Huge apologies for that. We've had a really good run of the site being up and through SpaceX launches (with some mitigation) etc. Then that happens.

Amazed the host didn't pro-actively sort it out the second it happened. Got an automated e-mail about it, but we had to personally do something. Hmmm!

Have to go to work. Watched the site for the last 15 mins and looks fine and Mark says it's fine now. Will keep watching it from work like an overly concerned father.

Chris.

Congrats to Server Admin, I fell asleep yesterday CST and woke up and seen the site was down I was like oh no, CCtCap was awarded and I didn't know about it : :-\ Well I hope this reset allows you guys to handle CCtCap, AsaiaSat-6 Launch, Soyuz Return and Dragon SPX-4 Looking forward to whats a head!

Glad you are back, I couldn't handle the withdrawals from my addiction to this place when I got home from work last night!

Chris,

     No need for apologies!  You run one of the best sites of it's type on the internet.  The amount of free info that your site provides is astounding, as is the intellectual conversations I have had in the past.  having a short outage from time to time is completely understandable.
My God!  It's full of universes!

Well there you go folks. I can never complain about anything when we've got members like the above. I'd actually understand if people were angry about such things (I know I was!), but I'm pretty much blessed by this membership.

Means a lot, really it does.

(PS Everything has been stable since, so that's good).

We know we're wonderful. We can't help it.
 I go to many, many sites for purchases, research and goofing off when I'm suppose to be doing the other stuff. This has always been the most consistently reliable site I know. I wish you'd give seminars on keeping your hosts in line.

The site was up when I went to bed last night.
It was up when I got up this morning.

If I didn't see it, the outage didn't happen ;)

In other news: SLS delay caught back up, James Webb Space Telescope now ahead of schedule, and SpaceX to launch AsiaSat 6 tonight ;).

You see, an outage is not necessarily a bad thing...

Speaking of stuff happening, I was asked to login before accessing the advanced concepts thread on EMdrive, anybody else seeing anything unusual?

The forum was restricted to logged in members because the servers where hammered due to the Commercial Crew anouncments; ie not logged in members where blocked out to ease the load

Yeah, sorry about that. I saw the servers getting hammered so took the action to avoid it falling over.

REALLY a lot of people hitting the site. Still are!

No problem with responsiveness of the site at this end.

Cheers, Martin
