Font Awesome Accounts — Try #2
We screwed this up once.
Things should be fixed now, we think.
Give it a shot, please!
Okay, folks. We’re pretty certain we’ve fixed the root causes from FA Accounts Try #1. We’re sending out batches of 1,000 and will keep an eye on things.
The problems were a combination of two things we found (Nerd Alert!):
- A third party connection library (Hackney) that was configured to 50 external connections by default. This is primarily what caused the issue with GitHub auth, and we’ve upped the pool accordingly.
- We had a data loss issue (!!!) from a mis-configuration of Elixir. This only hit our Backer table, so was easy enough to restore.
We think this should take care of things, so we’re sending out invites again. Remember that this first round is just for Kickstarter Backers. PayPal and BackerKit pre-orders should go out next week.
(For more context, please see our most recent Update #19.)
