Erin began checking systems when the server came back online and declared the running temp to have improved considerably. So the good news is, the hardware is fixed. The bad news is that some databases were corrupted, and are being repaired/reverted. Part of this task is completed in fact, KUDOS TO ERIN our Princess of Codalot! Alas, even a princess needs sleep, and our heroic lady has taken her leave to that ends. Tomorrow we will sort out the last of the issues.
FOR NOW - please do not bother about anything crafting related. Otherwise the server should be operating OK. Tomorrow all will be resolved.
Let us all also applaud the heroes here. Erin / Eriniel our amazing Tech Leader, and the techs at our host (Hivelocity) who turned around the request for help in about 20 minutes including discovery and repair. Good service, competent techs, on-hand parts are all part of what we pay for with that excellent hosting. BUT EVERYONE TAKE NOTE, THE HELP ERIN GIVES US IS BOTH DONATED/FREELY-GIVEN, EXTRAORDINARILY COMPETENT AND ABOVE ALL PRICELESS. Please take a moment to THANK our Princess of Codalot - our tech heroine on the scene, Eriniel. HOO-RAH!
And from all my characters: Thank you for saveing the world
