Servers Down

Updates: Just a couple little updates…

Some of you are reporting you’re back in.  Some are still out.  I’m one of those who still can’t get into the game…but hopefully we’ll all be in shortly.

4:30pm ET From AWS:

Update at 1:12 PM PST: S3 object retrieval, listing and deletion are fully recovered now. We are still working to recover normal operations for adding new objects to S3.

Update at 12:52 PM PST: We are seeing recovery for S3 object retrievals, listing and deletions. We continue to work on recovery for adding new objects to S3 and expect to start seeing improved error rates within the hour.

3:45pm ET:
I wasn’t clear in my post below, cause I honestly didn’t think it was too important, this is Amazon Web Services that’s down (East Coast Server).  EA (and many, many, MANY other companies) utilize AWS.  So this outage has little to do with EA.

Or their Twitter Feed @AWSCloud .  I’ll try to update this post with updated tweets from them as I see them.  The latest from about 3pm Eastern Time:

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Bringing back an Addicts classic…with fond memories of Cguy:

They’re up
They’re down,
They’re down and up and down
down, down, down
up, up, up,
The EA Distraction Show!

Admitedly the server outages are A LOT better than they were 3 years ago, BUT it’s still fun to bring back a classic Addicts song 😉

You may be seeing this in TSTO right now…

Servers are down for many…

It appears it’s an issue with the East Coast servers (which impact more than just the East Coast), from what I’m gathering.  Hopefully they’re up soon…

In the meantime here are a few fun riddles to keep you entertained:

1) Why is this right?


2) Homer has with him Baby Maggie, his dog, and a jar of poisons that look like delicious candy. (Homer: Oh, why did I take my baby and my dog with me when I went to buy poison! And why do the poison has to look so delicious!?) He needs to get all three across the river. He can only take one of them at a time in his rowboat. He can’t leave Maggie with the poison. He can’t leave the dog with Maggie. He CAN leave the dog with the Poison. How does he do this?

3) Wednesday, Lenny and Carl went to a restaurant and ate dinner. When they were done they paid for the food and left. But Lenny and Carl didn’t pay for the food. Who did?

Have fun and hopefully we’re back up soon!
