Today's question really should be multiple choice. I am running more than one!

All Green woot woot. 

Level 12

For Thursday, in my last employment, we were using MS SQL, MySQL, Oracle, Sybase, Mongo, Hadoop, and likely others I hadn't yet encountered; these are the ones for which I helped set up monitoring.

Presently I am learning Azure, since my last employer had a custom private cloud.

@yumdarling I tried to answer the questions for this week but they were closed. I'm missing something here?
The instructions says: "Once a question has opened, it will remain open until March 23rd, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. CT". 

I'm trying it on March 22 at 5:00PM CT, and I'm getting the following error:
"Awww snap, you're too late! We're sorry, this question had to be answered by March 22, 2020."

Any help? Thanks

@yumdarling  I tried but did not work. I even also tried another browser and the same error.

Hey, the mission closed too soon.  😞

"Once a question has opened, it will remain open until March 22nd, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. CT."

Yep... I wonder if the expiration was accidentally set to 11:59 AM CDT? (not 23:59)

Sorry about the mission ending a little early, friends. I'm looking into why this happened - as far as I can tell, everything was set up correctly.


Definitely don't want this to continue to be an issue.

Can y'all just shoot me a DM if you encountered this issue yesterday?




@yumdarlingany word on winners, I am hoping beyond hope for this mission.
