Ok so we are 2/3 finished with the backup and will probably be online tomorrow. Fingers crossed. The backup is a long process that needs to be done. I apologize for the lateness but soon we will smell like a fresh new grid again.. Thank you!
Please in the meantime join us for coffee or chat at our GCG Hangout that looks like home on our private region at:
Just put that in your map or search it if you login to Osgrid.

Winter Silversmith: Is the grid down? Did I miss the memo above somewhere?

lewislake: GCG grid's been offline for at least 12 hours. I can't find a memo either.

maximus: why is the forum link off the main webpage?
Mar 21, 2019 11:23:12 GMT -8
annawright: Maybe it never got updated when the forum changed.

maximus: So the story I heard is the core system broke and files were corrupted. So they are in the fixing stages. But gcg has backups and all work is saved to a point I gather depends how far back they do the role back. This happens one time all worked out well.

annawright: I just built a whole area in a skybox. Hopefully they don't have to roll back too far or that progress will be gone. Grrr.....technology needs to cooperate better.

Winter Silversmith: This is what happens when you try to fix what isn't broke didn't Roddie just do "maintenance" on the grid on the 10th. See why I like things to just stay as they are, when you try to change things break

annawright: The two might not be related. Sometimes stuff just happens. Actually never mind sometimes....lol
Mar 22, 2019 9:40:43 GMT -8
annawright: And I do realize I said earlier that technology needs to cooperate but that was a mood and moment. I know it's just consistently unpredictable so the only thing I can adapt are my reactions.

Winter Silversmith: probably, but given this is about the third time in a couple years... i'm inclined to wonder. i'd rather say it was that than roddie buggered it up.
Mar 22, 2019 19:14:49 GMT -8
Roddie Macchi: The maintenance i did were updates for the servers. Thats why i thought maybe that was the cause. But nope..we just had a bad file somewhere and it shut down the database. No idea why. and no its not third time lol.

annawright: I deleted my pining thread to save space in the forum stuff. Just FYI if there's confusion.
Mar 28, 2019 6:56:03 GMT -8
Winter Silversmith: we don't really have a challenge for space since not a lot of people use the Forums Anna, but Speak Easy cafe is there to speak easy about anything GCG virtual related. I don't even remember your post sorry

annawright: Good to know for future posts:)
