Update on LM's web site being down.

Recommended Posts

Lockheed Martin requested I pass this information along:

 

 

Prepar3D.com is experiencing issues due to a snowstorm in the U.S. Northeast and a huge traffic increase related to v2.5.

 

We assure you this is an extremely rare occurrence and we are adding addition capacity to ensure this never happens again

 

The issues will likely last another 24 hours and after that we should be back up and running at full capacity.

 

We apologize for any inconvenience and we will be back shortly!

 

Cheers, Rob.

I tried to log on .. got xfer to a WordPress page to fill in  .. look like the wanted a new pw.

 

I put in new data .. that was accepted .. then I was informed I was already a member ... if so, why did I end up there?

 

No real explanation on the page as to what or why I was there or what was required.

 

Later I seen the site looked ok prior to a login .. but that had error ... so then using my original PW  .. site has the temp lockout in effect ..

 

All a bit of a mess ..............

Beats me... I've noticed that tech support requests by commercial developers has all but disappeared since they changed the format. Perhaps that was their goal.

I'm not commercial. I wouldn't know. I do notice though that the Lockheed Martin team seem to surface less frequently than they used to. I don't mind so much given they have Saul and Robin to answer questions on their forum. Good thing, as it allows the LM folks to concentrate on development of the product.

 

I've seen a lot of software get trashed because of diminished developer participation...either directly or through moderators. Nature will not tolerate a vacuum. Customers invariably make assumptions...usually wrong, which eventually are taken as fact.

Paranoia mode on.

 

This past weekend the server hosting REX, FSS and a few other websites was having problems. I placed an order on FlightSim Store Sunday morning (my time) and it seems to have gotten lost. Connection?

 

Paranoia mode off.

This is directly related to the fact that I just made the decision to purchase P3d.  So everyone can blame me.  :BigGrin:

Click the download link....and I get....

We are currently processing system upgrades. We apologize for any inconvenience and we will be back shortly!

 

"Shortly" is a relative term.  Shortly in comparison to how long it takes to convert dinosaur bones into fossil fuel..... Not even a blink.

Shortly in comparison to when you've made that decision to buy and are now waiting with credit card in hand.....eternity!  :LMAO:  

 

Been trying all morning, obviously if I was successful I wound't be typing here. Hehe.

I just hope they use the person-wanting-to-buy algorithm vs fossil fuel conversion algorithm 

 

 

EDIT:  And as luck would have it....just coming here to whine about it was just the thing to do to make the site start working.....I'd like to think it was me that fixed LMs site with this post.  :ph34r:
