This is the most recent update from Lynda:
Containment of the fires is around 25%, but the most significant threats continue to be in Carpinteria and surrounding areas. Evacuation orders are still in effect for the time being. The office itself is currently safe but will continue to be in an evacuation zone and closed until at least Monday 12/18.
Several Engineering environments and resources are completely offline due to the shutdown of the Carpinteria office. This means any issues that cannot be fixed remotely are on hold.
Unfortunately we are still waiting for the go-ahead to safely return to the offices, which continues to prevent our engineers from fixing this issue. Again, we sincerely apologize for the complications this is causing you. I will continue to provide updates as we get them in an effort to be as transparent as possible, and hopefully we are able to get everything up and running over the next few days. Thank you for your understanding. Please feel free to reach out to any of us with any further questions.
Following up on my note from earlier, we received an update from our engineering team just a bit ago – the fires have disabled many of our systems and are blocking our engineers from testing a possible fix while they are remote. We were warned that an attempt to fix the problem without further testing would be extremely risky and would open up the likelihood of additional bugs. Their recommended course of action is to wait until our Carpinteria offices are reopened, which is scheduled for Monday 12/18.
We are very sorry for the interruption of your services and understand it's been challenging for you – please be assured we are working every angle to try and get things running for you as soon as possible. Unfortunately, the fires have forced many of our team to evacuate the area and some have even lost their homes, which has made this an even more challenging process. Thank you again for all of your patience.
Lynda.com employees have been evacuated from the area surrounding their office because of the fires in Southern California. Their engineers and Tier 2 Support staff are currenlty unable to work in their offices, and as a result, they are not able to resolve issues with Login that much of the UW system have been experiencing.
