Here are the news posted on todays Excalibur maintenance, in case you missed it :)

Good news all.

We have found a hardware failure with the new network to which Excalibur was moved shortly before christmas, and this was the cause of at least yesterdays crash of several zones. We are going to perform a short maintenance in one hour, at 15.20 pm GMT, to fix this.

The downtime should be short, and hopefully this will reduce the number of crashes on Excalibur, but we are still monitoring the server and the network for other possible problems, as we have not yet verified if this is the sole cause of the recent server crashes or not.

When changing the gerbil for a hamster, it's important to re-balance the wheel. If the wheel is still weighted and balanced for a gerbil when the hamster starts running, it will cause an imbalance leading to fluctuations in output and more server crashes.

While we appreciate the rodentware upgrade, it's important to remember that the technical requirements can vary between different types.

Think most people will agree that its great that we are now getting more regular news and postings from GOA people on the forum. Fingers crossed for less (or no) crashes!

My faith in GOA is starting to come back!

Hopefully we'll be able to test your changes to the server over the next few days Zargar ;)
