The SmartBots Q&A Conference (2019-08-22) transcript

Hello there!

Yesterday we were holding a first Q&A Conference. This was a cool experience for us and everything went really great. We’ve talked with you in public, then I had several conversation in private IMs. Thank you everyone for coming!

The transcript of the public session is below, with the minimal changes. I believe we will hold the similar events in the future, too! I’ve just liked it, and you may have known a bit more about the project you love \(•◡•)/

Happy reading!

The minor maintenance turning to epic crash… and some data loss

If you saw SmartBots website offline today, we are really sorry for that! This was a result of an epic crash we’ve faced today. The techy details follow for those who interested or curios.

Once is a chance

We’ve decided to run a minor maintenance this morning. It was supposed to be a regular replacement of an SSD drive (these drives get worn out every 1.5 – 2 years). The drives (say, A and B) are joined into the RAID array, so it was enough to pull out one drive (drive B) and insert a fresh one. (more…)

Maintenance: we have good news and, well, another good news

We are working on integrating bots and Second Life with Discord. Thus, the bots just got a new experimental brains upgrade which is able to be a Discord bot in addition to Second Life bot.

We’ve rolled out the experimental release yesterday, and, ehm, it was too experimental. Few hours later, the subject bots started crushing everything around, eating memory without washing the hands first… you know, very inadequate behavior for good bots!

The reason has been found: this is a Discord’s unstoppable fun made our decent bots crazy! Our team did and applied a special Discord-resistance patch for all of the bots. So far, everything is calm since then!

No kidding: we’ve did a release with new experimental integrations, and it messed some things up. Few updated bots managed to overload and crush two of our servers, causing the account and system lags. The problem is fixed now.

If you are using Discord for your Second Life activity, please contact us (either by replying to this blog post, or by contacting our support). We will be glad to know the ways you use Discord!
