Today has been an absolutely awful day, so I’m not going to write much. Personal downsides aside, the server (heroku) that ran Tabbycat, the software we were tabulating on, crashed. Right when we generated the draw for our second round. Now I’m not sure if this makes any sense to a non-debater, but we essentially lost one round of scoring and data on the internet, thanks to my reliance exclusively on the internet.
I feel awful, and although we’ve now created a plan for tomorrow and we’ve rebooted the tournament on a software that is designed to work offline, and is a software I am extremely comfortable with, I am scared, and feel horrible at the moment.
