Silver this is an interesting concept. I would hope that they have full back ups. Why not roll back to the pre downtime state? It has now been 5 1/2 hours. Surely there is something fundamentally flawed with the new patch. Or is it in fact a mass hardware issue. It would be interesting to understand what type of fault this is.

I run a software business that develops applications and I know how frustrating that this can be, but as my clients state (and we are the clients here) "keep me up to date with all the detail so I can be assured that you are working in the most professional way to solve my problems"

Now getting officially disgruntle but also understand the nuances of software.

Just to put the "full backup" nonsense to bed.

You run a software company, yes? You're aware of the concept of backup rotation schemes, yes? CCP doesn't do a full backup every time it backs up the system, that'd be amazingly cost prohibitive. It's all incremental.

It's entirely possible that a code change made weeks/months ago is causing a conflict today. The only way to fix something like that, would be to rollback to the point of that code change, and move forward. It's not like they can just grab the backup off the shelf from yesterday and spin it up. It's entirely possible that the last stable backup they can pull might be too old to use.

Just imagine the fits that would be pitched if CCP said "Guys, we got to roll back to 7/1 to find a stable build. Sorry, 15 days are gone. Good luck!

Such a rollback would be great LOL then I have my 100% refining again.

I agree with Wingman8701 Boirelle, more then 6 hrs of finding a problem is stupid.
Rollback the server to the point where it all is working fine and sort it out on the test server.

It is not called test server for nothing, did CCP put the updates there first and see if it worked?

Pages are being written faster then I can read it LOL.

CCP maybe an update how it is going and perhaps tell us what the issue(s) are.

CCP did put them on the test server ...Singularity. However, scale makes the code unpredictable. Singularity is wayyyyy less powerful than TQ, so there's bound to be hidden gremlins in the code.

CCP, did you feed your code after midnight?

You are spoiling the sarcasm and wit that is now the hallmark of the most epic of threads.

TRUE... sorry for thinking.... it gets me in trouble sometimes.. :)

Guys, we're trying to get to 100. Quantity, not quality. Short posts, not long.

Also, drink. Why? I'm sure there's a post between this one and my last that fits the rules.

Only 100? I have more faith in our community. I say we can get to 200 pages before the server gets back online.


Oh, and about the drinking part - yeah, everyone drink!

my house before eve crashed

Then EvE stopped working and I found there was actually an outside with trees and fields and skys of blue. Then angry neighbours, wars and bad politics.

Please turn the server back on I need to get back in my house Ugh
