it just took them a while to migrate it
All Sleeping Town and #Jortage services will be going offline shortly for migration to a new server
There is a lot of data to transfer, so this will unfortunately take a while as the SyS → OVHcloud migration means I can't move the containers one by one, as I have to change ownership of every IP simultaneously, and I can't even create a vRack despite the two servers being in the same datacenter, so I'm limited to my public bandwidth limit.
The newer server has a 5x higher bandwidth limit, a much faster CPU, faster RAM, and faster disks. The current server is a grandfathered one with a bad price — notably better specs are available on OVH's new server range for the same price, but I opted for this server at a $20/mo price increase as we're really feeling the squeeze on these old, Spectre-vulnerable Intel Xeons. The new box uses an AMD Zen 2 processor.
After the services go down, I will likely be discussing progress on my backup account, @firstname.lastname@example.org — you can also, as always, check https://status.unascribed.com and https://status.jortage.com
Apologies for the downtime. See you on the other side. I will be prioritizing restoration of Jortage Storage Pool services.
everything seems to be coming back up
people are very angry about it on twitter
this appears to be why
"no impact" i.e. "everything is down"
Running servers since 2009 and no one knows why. If something about that has gone wrong, I'll probably be posting here instead of on my main account @unascribed
