NO NEW USER REGISTRATIONS ARE BEING ACCEPTED AT THIS TIME!
*Saturday Feb 17*
Grid will be offline until further notice,
This has turned into way more of an issue than first thought,
many of the assets have 0 values, like they have been replced with NULLS.
We are 100% sure this was a targeted attack at this point, we don't don't know
if we were the final target, or just a test run. Seems like this was a personal attack
if you consider that there was also an attempted PayPal account hack.
But these two may not be related, but as Agent Gibbs says, "There are no coincedences.".
We will update when we get closer to a resolution.

Grid will be coming back online today,
I could not recover some of the inventory corrumption without rolling everyons inventory back almost 2 months.
This does not mean there is 2 months of corruption for everyone, for some people , none, for some people the last couple of weeks.
For some people corruption a month ago but none in the last 2 weeks, so you can see it is a very difficult problem to correct without making some people unhappy.
We will move forward.
Thank You for understanding.
We are going to suggest that the newest version of Firestorm Viewer should not be used.
Besides the known mesh issue, we have noticed some strange things in the way it communicates with the grid.
For your sanity and ours it may be best to avoid it for now.

Stay Tuned ...

Taking the grid back offline, the database is being , well for lack of a better term, "fuinky". So in an effort to not corrupt the data, taking it back offline.
Will post updates as they are available ..

This Monday and Tuesday , February 12th and 13th the grid will be offline for backups, restores, and diagnosing an ongoing problem.
We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause we hope to have things back up and running as they were by Wednesday.
UPDATE!: There is still the odd failed TP , and if you crash out you may get the "Already logged in" message, best remedy for this is to log back in to a different region than the one you were on, give that region time to realize you are not there.
We are working on the issue, and hope to have to compltely resolved soon.
Thank you for your patience.
Been working on some strangeness that has been going on with the grid for a couple of days now.
So far I can find nothing actually wrong with the grid, other than one problem child region.
But it seems that the grid is receiving a LOT of extra traffic pointed at it, according to the firewall logs.
The IP seems familiar to me, and I will investigate closer, but at this point it is not causing enough issues
to consider it an "attack" could just be a system misconfigured out in the wild.
Just wanted to post an FYI about this.
We threw a party on December 16th 2017, to celebrate the first day the grid went online, and it just happened to be right around Bill Blight's RL birthday. But who really needs a reason to party?
