Sorry for the downtime


I was travelling and didn't check the site for a few days. There was some sort of low-level problem: virtual machine CPU use went to 100% and the machine was not responsive to any network requests. It seems to be fine after a reboot.

Glad it was nothing serious. Thought maybe someone had decided to DDOS the site or something.

oh thank science! who cares...i was just worried that something may have happened to you! we could live without the board if it had to be down but that you are well and healthy is far more important. glad to see it back up and running though.

Only when we are deprived of our daily visit do we realize how much of a debt we all owe to Polverone. Thank you again, sir, for your efforts.

Yes, thank science Polverone is well and this trauma was just a freak occurence!

Maybe this downtime was fortuitous as it reminded me, and many others, how important this site is. Therefore I want to ask Polverone about costs. Do you need some financial help in supporting this forum?

Glad were all back! I was hoping that torrent you made wouldn't be necessary. (though it is very cool!)

Yeeeaaah. I have been checking constantly for the last 2 days. Now I know it is nothing serious.

Thanks Polverone.

when did you all have trouble??? I been able to look things up freely every night when I got off work. though saturday I was at a wedding. but prior all through till 2pm sat(wedding) and then back mid-day say 3ish sunday I was reading.

well glad I didn't even notice. and stuff is up cause I would have freaked out also. usually I read till 1 or 2am n get up ~7 to hang drywall. only gone for 9-10 hrs a day, LOTS of my time is reading here. sooo much to learn

suppose I could have left 3 or so long threads open and still been reading what was loaded before it went down..

perhaps a thread like this should be locked after a reasonable time in order to prevent people from mistakenly thinking it is current and reviving it.

We had a two-for-one special on forum interruptions! The database needed repair and the SSL certificate had expired. Now the DB is fixed, new SSL certificate generated. You will need to confirm a security exception again if you use the HTTPS version of the site.

I thought it was just the Wifi I was using yesterday when I kept getting 500 errors. Glad to know that it's all sorted.

The u2u service is still buggy. Instead of opening a u2u it pulls up the annoying "would you like to view it now" screen, Clicking ok pulls up another of the same.
