Related to the recent downtime, I am performing some hardware maintenance today starting at 13:00 server time. I expect this will last for approximately 30 minutes (I'm effectively switching a NIC on one of the servers).

During this time, the game servers and the IRC chat will be down. The website will still be functional through the maintenance.

Edit: The maintenance is complete, and services are back to working order.

Earlier today, the FFB game server started to act up and you haven't been able to play games properly over the day.

I've identified an issue with a network card and/or cable on the server that runs FFB where it's experiencing massive packet loss over that interface. This is the connection to the main database which as you may imagine is pretty important for functionality.

I have now temporarily moved the DB traffic over to another network and will take a look at the underlying hardware issue when I get the time to do so. At best, I'll be replacing a network cable (meaning no need to shut down the machine), and at worst I'll need to replace the NIC (meaning some shopping and a hardware maintenance window).

I'll keep you all posted about this and apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Update: It's not a cable issue and I will be replacing the NIC in question at some point this weekend (most likely on sunday).

Each year the Tomb lords of the Khemri meet at a charred and blackened crack in the desert. There powerful magic is called upon from ancient Tomes and Lich Lords under vow to assist, and the dusty magical conflagration sends up a flaming beacon into the sky. Teams from all over the world see the sign and flock to the desert for the chance to compete for the Crown Of Sand.

Oh yes, time to get racist. Its the ghettotastic, segregated, apartheid based Crown Of Sand VI

the first of the B Division Majors.
