Today on Thurday, 15th December 2016 – 03:23 UTC the Apache server for ASR’s website regularly under web address http://www.advancedstudyroom.org crashed completly. As follow up the content management / author system (WordPress), the Mysql databases + ASR league system are out of function.
Already since 2-3 days we had to notice an increased latency and packet loss as rescent severe weather events in India have resulted in damage to domestic and sub-sea fiber optic cables. – All major carriers are running on reduced capacity to Europe, North Amercia and Aasia… resulting in increased latency and periods of packet loss, so we have been informed by our provider in Singapore shortly.
Sorry for the inconvenience that the ASR Team had to take the regularly website + league system “off” today. We are working hard with our provider to bring back the fully system as soon and as much as possible.
Our ASR league members (in total 397 for now) are not being affected directly for playing their games in the ASR league with five divisions (alpha, beta, gamma, delta + placement) + new Rookie Challenge Contest (one division). – As all games are played on KGS Go server.
All games which are being played meanwhile will be indexed later as soon the league system is back.
You always can contact us here ! – Tks for your understanding and patiency.
