The new style Status web page was pretty useless, nothing about this work until 06:55 PST, no pre-announcement, no calendar, and apparently finished half an hour later.

I suppose there could be another reason for it, but there were sims showing as down on the minimap just now.

It's an old complaint, I know, and I hope you can do better for Project Sansar. I find it hard to justify such hopes.

Caleb, and anyone at Battery Street that reads this:

Firstly: I second Wolf's comments about the new Grid Status page.  The lack of Google calendar is annoying, since it precludes planning, and

Secondly: there were DEFINITELY sims being restarted long after the announcement on the GSP that the Main Server Roll was complete.

It is almost physically impossible to do a Main Server roll THAT quickly.  Be realistic!

ETA:

A few thoughts on Wolf's reference to Sansar.  One would think that in order to encourage investment of time and money (yes, Real Money - the sort we pay Linden Lab week in, week out for virtual real estate in Second Life) that Linden Lab would want to show how competently they run SL.  Well I would expect it, perhaps I'm naiive.  It just isn't happening, which makes me wonder if the ARE capable of it.

When it was started SL was pretty well unique and novel.  With all due respect to Sansar, that is just not true any more, and getting it out of Public Beta will be a real struggle unless they up their game.

Historically, that actual announcement that planned rolling restarts had begun was always several hours after the actual start. It looked as though there was nobody able to trigger that announcement on the team which was actually doing the work.

This revamp of the GSP amounts to lipstick on a pig. All that's been changed is the web page. The core problem of information flow is the same

Valid point, but my main concern (aside from the general issue of LL's competence) was that restarts were still going on well after the time of the announcement.  The conclusion that could be drawn is either that the GSP announcements are made irrespective of the actual status of the roll, or that some sort of secondary roll was being performed.
