    They upgraded to the Hampster 2.0 and now a previously unknown bug has the hampsters running backwards...
     
  12. Re: WTH!!! Great Lakes Down AGAIN!!!

    I think ive become acustomed to the suprise that great lakes is up as opposed to it being down. I think the more appropriate question isnt why is great lakes down as it is "why is great lakes up?"

    $500.00
    $1000.00
    $1500.00
    $2000.00
    $2500.00

    ... lol Yes, it basically cost me $500.00 every minute my servers are not running!

    Has anyone noticed that for the past few months (Greatlakes most recently) All the servers are getting nailed here and there, being taken down for emergency maintenance, reverts, login servers, etc.


    Think its time for an upgrade...

    Ugh, lol you have my sympathies! Figuring out how the hell some companies come up with their quotes is a never ending mystery!

    Always keep it in house if you can! Its easier to beat on them if something goes wrong or too far out of schedule that way! :fight:

    LOL i used to work for a county, dealing with lawyers and judges. Then i came here to work for one of the biggest mutlispecialty dr groups around here, and I haven't quite decided who is worse to have yell at you...the judge...or the doctors who own part of the company (who freak out if they cant look at a patient chart on their tablet, and SWEAR TO GOD THEY WILL GO BACK TO PAPER CHARTS AND HAND WRITE PRESCRIPTIONS!!!!)... lol

    I'll reply here also - we're currently looking into the issue. I'll post on the Herald if the downtime is going to be a bit longer. Still trying to get the 411 on the issue :)

    Thanks all!

    Umm, I'd work for food!

    ...Well, it has to be good food.

    ......... And well, I'd have to be hungry.

    ............... And, erm, hmm, screw it! I wanna take a nap!



    (Yes, I'm bored at work. I'm listening to 2 financial guys go at a plant manager over the budget for this year...)

    Well now the situation is resolved and GL is back up...

    Just a curiosity thing.

    Somehow they just knew that I got off work early to work on things in UO.... Fate is against me, I tell you!.....

    Glad it's up again but good gods.... you think they could find out WTH is going on and fix it for good already?
