Great Canadian Grid DOWN for days!!!!
#1
Yes sir ! the GCG is down and they wont tell the whole story, was it hacked?, was the server burned, well the rumors are spreading which each passing hour!.


Im very curious to know the details of what really happened, Im hearing some hackers moving from grid to grid and crashing them for fun, I know for sure one grid was destroyed by a hacker!.


Lets wait and see what reveals and how it unravels

From the owner on Facebook:
Roddie Macchi
22 hrs

Yesterday around 3pm strange things started happening on our Core Server

I was able to restart the database but then it shut us down again.

I figured it was a Windows update that was messing with the MySQL but soon realized that something had happened from an outside source.

Somehow the database unexpectedly corrupted. Apparently from what I'm told this sometimes happens.

Either from a hacker or just a simple misfire inside the program sorta speak where things just get boggled up and POOF corrupts.

It doesn't happen often but it does happen. It's computers for ya lol.

This is not old news...this happens to the best of us...Second Life, Digi just in the fall....it happens.

Because GCG has such a huge amount of storage from once being so big at one time...everyone that was here at one time still have all their stuff

and all their inventory in our storage and in our database. That is why it takes longer for us to back it all up and reboot the grid again like new.

But don't worry...GCG has been around for 5 yrs...and I've yet to hear anyone say "ALL MY STUFF IS GONE!" lol...anyone who knows Roddie knows I'm stubborn.

I will get this fixed and we will be back like new again...its my home too!

So hang in there...and I'll see you all soon...be sure to keep looking here for any updates and please join our FB group as well.

Cheers!

wow,
I hope your right, those are big accusations against a list of people you just listed.
Where are you getting your information, and what other grids have they been CAUGHT and banned on?
Thanks for the heads up! This is why I keep my grid PRIVATE , INVITE Only.
It amazes me how stupid people can be when given a chance.
