Server Outage

A couple of nights ago around 8pm-cst, we had a brief (about an half hour) outage. I'd like to have a grand story to tell how there was a technical difficulty that through grand ingenuity and general cleverness I was able to resolve in thirty minutes or less.

Unfortunately...such a tale would be entirely apocryphal. What actually happened is that I messed up. Messed up1 badly enough it brought the server down for thirty minutes.

To everyone who was connected or was trying to connect while the server was down, I'm sorry! I can't make up that lost RP time, but we are taking steps to make sure that sort of thing doesn't happen again.

On the upside--it revealed a problem with the way we have the forums set up. If the game is down, no one can log into the forums. I think that's a bad thing--it interferes with communication at a time when we need more communication, not less. We'll be looking into ways to fix the problem.
