I thought it would be both entertaining and informative to chart the ups and downs of the GoofyXgrid NCI project. I did this by reading through this thread, looking at when people commented on the project being up and down. I also made note of the first time anyone called for Willy to declare the project dead, and how long it took for the project to be down before that started.
This thread starts with the project returning from a long outage on January 17th, 2019. If I remember correctly, it was down for at least a month before that, but I think it was actually several months. So there was a very long outage that immediately precedes this log.
Total down time since January 17th, 2019: 235 days
Total up time since January 17th, 2019: 374 days
I think we can all agree this is an atrocious track record, by any standard.
The longest continuous period that the project has been up was 129 days, and the second longest was 98 days.
The longest period that it was down was 51 days, and the second longest was 47 days.
We're currently on day 45 of this outage, which makes this the third longest outage since this thread was started.
Days since an outage started after which someone asked Willy to mark the project dead:
I think it's safe to say people are losing patience.
