At around 14:30 UTC today, Tranquility experienced an unexpected issue that we believe may have been caused by the unanchoring of a faction Fortizar in the system of NGM-OK.

This issue was severe enough that it required us to take Tranquility offline for a number of hours to complete an extensive investigation into the root cause so that we could properly rectify the problem.

During this downtime, there were a number of other faction Fortizars that were in the process of being unanchored by their owner corporations. Given the fact that the unanchoring process for these was interrupted by unscheduled server downtime, CCP has scooped the affected faction Fortizars from space and they will be delivered to the HQ station of their respective owner corporations. Regular structures that were unanchoring are not affected by this action.

Given the issues that were encountered this afternoon, some asset safety may be delayed, especially for the Fortizar in NGM-OK that at this stage seems to have triggered the unscheduled downtime. The GM Team will be in direct contact with the owners of this faction Fortizar in order to ensure that all assets and the citadel itself are recovered properly.

We’ll be looking to publish more detailed information on this issue, what caused it and how it was resolved, so stay tuned for more information once a full retrospective has occured in the next couple of weeks.

Apologies for the unscheduled downtime that this issue caused, Tranquility is now back online and accepting connections.

  1. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  3. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  4. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  5. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  6. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  8. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  9. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  14. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  24. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  31. Great blog post. What I would like to make contributions about is that pc memory has to be purchased in case your computer can no longer cope with everything you do along with it. One can deploy two good old ram boards of 1GB each, for example, but not one of 1GB and one with 2GB. One should make sure the company’s documentation for one’s PC to be certain what type of memory space is necessary.

  36. Thanks for your ideas. One thing I’ve noticed is that often banks as well as financial institutions really know the spending habits of consumers plus understand that most people max out there their own credit cards around the holidays. They correctly take advantage of this kind of fact and begin flooding a person’s inbox along with snail-mail box using hundreds of no-interest APR credit card offers shortly when the holiday season concludes. Knowing that in case you are like 98% of all American public, you’ll hop at the opportunity to consolidate consumer credit card debt and shift balances for 0 rate credit cards.
