View Full Version : Outage Just Now
09-28-2010, 04:24 AM
Hiya folks. After the last outage a few days ago, I've been reading logs and code, trying to find the cause. Today, I was trying a few of the combinations that looked plausible, trying to find a way to know for sure what was breaking.
Good news: I found a combination that breaks everything!
Bad news: I found a combination that breaks everything!
That's right, the outage just now was caused by me. Now that I can reproduce it, I have to find a way to prevent it. The hardest step is done, though, and I apologize for the outage.

I was freaking out man.

Ah. Okay, yeah, thanks for the heads up. That might explain a few things. :o

It really wasn't deliberate. I didn't think I could do it, to be honest. Not with the knowledge that I had, and the results I was getting from what I had been doing so far.

I was wondering if I'd missed a notice about a forum software update. Fired off an e-mail to Raps and everything just to be sure.

It was the Kitty wasn't it? His cuteness killed the site...

Well, he was on my shoulder, so it was definitely his fault. Very definitely. :)

Was that why we were trying to ban a spammer and it wouldn't take?
I managed to fix the problem, I think.

Only if it happened during that little outage, or the minute or so before it.

Looks like RK tried to ban the spammer at 12:14. I came in a little later and tried it myself, and it didn't work for me either.
I ended up taking down the board and repairing and optimizing the tables. That seemed to do the trick.

never underestimate the power of the Dark side ignorance. my child once completely formatted my old PC when he was about 2. :eek:
