Starting Saturday 16 March 23:00 JST, my body experienced an outage of my lower back. Several appointments were canceled or rescheduled until service is fully restored. I am continuing to work on restoring normal operations via:

  • Stretching
  • Beginner yoga posses
  • Hot baths ~ 40 degree C
  • Laying flat on my heated floor
  • Ibuprofen

Service currently operates at about 80% of normal.
Root cause analysis is ongoing. However, the triggering event may not be known with certainty. Strange body contortions while carrying a shoulder bag in a very crowded BOOKOFF in Akihabara is considered most likely.
Preventive maintenance and resiliency of operations planning is underway. These measures will include:

  • Stretching
  • Yoga
  • Core strengthening

These measures are more critical than ever as the infrastructure, currently at version 46.02, cannot be replaced.
This outage is unrelated to the nose pimple pictured above, which is resolved.
This outage is also unrelated to the vision degradation last week. That maintenance should be completed 20 March between 14:00 and 21:00 JST.

Be nice with what you write.
