The site was down for over a day. I want to start by apologizing, this length of down time is not acceptable and I am taking steps mitigate the future risk. The website side of the EMC platform lives in the Slicehost/Rackspace cloud. The reason I chose to do this is that you can scale it easily and it is very reliable (hah). I will say I have used them for over 2 years and never had a problem before. During the downtime the game server were NOT affected, as they live on their own dedicated beastly hardware in a different data center.What happened is that the machine the website was living on crashed hard. It ended up with corrupt file system and took them over a day to recover. Once it was back up I had the wonderful task of reparing database corruption. Some I had to patch in from backups. The only data (that I can see at this time) that was lost was rupee transactions (history). These were purposely not backed up because they are large (millions and millions) and loss of them does not hurt us.For those of you that have been here for awhile you know that one of my top goals is to provide as much uptime as possible. I plan feature releases and updates very carefully so we don't need downtime, especially on the game servers. You can be assured I was going nuts and could barely sit still over the last 24 hours. I wrote more angry emails and had more angry phone calls than I think the rest of my life combined. Once again I apologize, and thank you all for sticking around.
