Modelry - A Random Walk through Internet Real Estate: Tech Update - June 17, 2011

Tech Update - June 17, 2011

ActiveRain TechnologyHi Everyone,

Scheduled Maintenance: Monday June 20, 2011 at 9pm PST (midnight EST) may be the first time at ActiveRain when we are actually taking ActiveRain down (on purpose) to do some needed maintenance and work under the hood.  Karli has written a post on the planned maintenance and you can find it here at In The Loop.    Hopefully this doesn't cause too much disruption to the ActiveRain night owls.  Based on the comments on Karli's blog, looks like most members will be in bed at this time.    

Friday June 17 Glitch: At approximately 11:30am on Friday June 17, we ran into a small issue with the database.  This first manifested itself in a number of internal systems.  Several members contacted us about not being able to save blogs or comment at this time.   We have been working on improving the ability of Localism to sync blogs from ActiveRain.  This sync'ing process caused the issue that we saw on Friday.  When we cuaght the issue, we were able to quickly fix the problem, thanks to the heroics of our resident tech superman Chris Paredes.  By noon, we were back running again.  Again, we apologize for the inconvenience this caused anyone who had an issue at this time.

Our first technology priority at ActiveRain is to establish stability and reliability of ActiveRain.  We are making great strides in that direction.

Loved the "UNDER THE HOOD" concept!  It takes me back to some of those days in a simpler time, when I could actually open up the hood and UNDERSTAND what I was looking at. Thank God for our techies!  We'd be Lost in CyberSpace without them.

And thanks for the heads up...I'm a lateniter, but getting up at 5am on Mondays faithfully will push me to go to bed sooner that nite.

Good luck and (pardon the pun) GodSpeed!

Niki, well, I did't contact you about it but I did notice the problems. You fixed it fast! Thank you and we will be expecting the "shut down" and not get upset about it. Have a wonderful time at Rain Camp Seattle!

Later in the rain~Deb

Hi Niki - The downtime on Monday night won't be affecting me since I had all the advance notice.

Hi Niki, I saw this in a re-blogg and commented. First time that I can remember that a Maintenance is Scheduled and the community is notified in advance. There is progress afterall. Thank you.
