We're back!

Postby Paul » 28 Apr 2011, 07:54

Hey Dudes and Dudettes,

Sorry for the unplanned outage. I was doing some modifications to the site for our new video podcasts and the server, which was apparently already almost breaking due to a malfunctioning wordpress script, completely borked itself. That would have been fine, except that it kept going crazy every time we restarted it. Those of you with unix server knowledge can probably agree that a load average of 56.3, 45.3, 36.8 is bad. The situation was not helped by our web host deciding to suspend our account due to "abuse" because we were using too many resources :roll:

Anyway, extremely long and annoying story short, we should be back up and good to go, but I am going to hold off of the planned changes until I figure out what happened. What that means is that the new video lrrcasts will be in the videos section instead of the lrrcasts section.

-Paul

The server picked an excellent day to crap itself considering it's also the day I chose to begin playing Portal 2. :D

... and here I was planning to joke that the video podcast was simply so awesome that the server couldn't handle it. But then it turns out it was the podcast after all. Huh.
While no one overhear you quickly tell me not cow cow.

Unless some upgrade to the technology happens that means your content can be beamed directly into our brains. Then it's ok if you go offline. ;)
