The Curse of the Broken Database
Another Monday morning, and another crash of the AWS database that drives our web site story content (and news). This makes the 3rd time this has happened since moving the web site to AWS. We are continuing to work on a solution. Hopefully, it won't be to move to yet another service provider. We'll see. Thanks to our intrepid readers who brought the problem to our attention.
Well that sucked...
Sometime early this morning, 10/9/2013, the cloud service we run the Big Head Press web site and email service on went down unexpectedly. We have not been told what caused the outage yet. The web site is functioning again, serving today's Quantum Vibe update. Though email is not functional at at this time, we hope it will be back soon. Look for us on facebook for further updates or to send us a message.
Update: All systems seem to be working again. Email is getting caught up now. We thank everyone for their patience this morning and will keep looking for ways to make the site less vulnerable to single points of failure problems.
The Transcript For This Page
Wide shot of some of the teens rigging their hammocks. In the foreground, silhouetted, we see an arm extending from the side of each panel, clasping hands. The arms belong to Ernie and Lili.
Caption: Bunking the kids in the common area was Lili's idea.
Caption: She told Ernie she knew about boys and girls.
Smallish panel, close 2-shot of Ernie and Lili, looking sideways at each other with knowing smiles. (Ernie can be standing behind Lili and a bit to one side, to get them close in the frame.)
Caption: Lili and Ernie, however, snuggled up in the Captain's cabin.
Wide shot of the captain's cabin. Lily is laying supine on the bed, propped up on her elbows, looking coquettish. Ernie is pulling off his clothes as fast as he can.
Caption: Rank hath its privileges.
Caption: Lili took the opportunity, once again, to demonstrate to Ernie her knowledge about boys and girls.
Caption: It happened every time they got together.
Caption: Different life choices didn't allow Ernie and Lili to live together, but the attraction was always there – always like the first time.
