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.
The Transcript For This Page
The base of the Macapá Beanstalk. A Manager, this one a lovely young Latina, is standing by, flanked by two Arsociates, as Wayne walks into the frame, followed by the android carrying his luggage.
Manager: You're just in time, Mr. Bobinardi.
Wayne: Of course I am. Are these my valets?
The Valets take the luggage from the Android. Wayne doesn't look at them, but looks at the Manager.
Manager: Yes, Excellency. They are called 'Dean' and 'Jerry.'
Wayne: They will do, let's get going.
Wayne and the Manager sit in comfortable seats, while the Valets sit on what are essentially boxes built into the floor. They are in a large elevator car with tall windows so they can see the Earth falling away beneath them.
Wayne: I daresay this ride takes longer than the trip from Brussels. But the view is spectacular.
Wayne stretches back in his seat and looks lustily at the Manager. She looks back at him with a forced smile.
Wayne: My dear, since we have this time together, have you considered joining the thousand-mile-high club?
