Ug.

The site was down because the domain name wasn't directing to the nameservers, which was out of my hands. I finally got an acknowledgement of the problem this morning, and it looks to be working.

I'd like to say it's not my fault, but this is not the first time some mickey mouse bullshit like this on the part of the registrar has take down ILP, and as they say, "fool me once..."

i must admit, i was imagining a few conspiracy scenarios myself, like a team of KTS operatives sabotaging the server.
i am brilliant, you are stupid. Therefore, you are wrong.

I think if we're ever hacked, it will probably be either some unbalanced and unaffiliated former member, or else (more likely) a Russian gang just interested in using our server to run a botnet.

That would be awesome. It would be taking forum philosophy wars to a whole nuther level. Just now I see in my head a sketch comedy scene.

Mad forum addict paces back and forth in his living room with his google glasses on and in a live chat-box talking to his elite circle of friends through google voice, vowing to take revenge against a moderator at another philosophy forum who thinks Kripke is too spurious and Cantor's diagonizational argument doesn't do shit to Godel's incompleteness theorem, with a carefully engineered forum virus that irreversibly changes every third sentence in every new post to: a box of minced McBiscuits, a box of mixed minced McBiscuits and a minced McBiscuit mixer.

You can believe if I knew how to do something like this, Id'a dunnit already.

I think that having members email accounts may help in such cases if members are willing to share.

With love,

Carleas, or anyone concerned. I have had problems posting, where the comment propped up: General error, MySQL. See administrator. What is the meaning of this?

It is likely that MySQL is still misconfigured, and that a heavier-than-usual load broke it and it timed out rather than completing your request. I always thought there should be a utility where you plug in your specs and needs and it spits out a proper configuration, but it's either too nuanced, or the people who are tuning servers generally know what they're doing enough not to need such a thing. In any case, I'll keep playing with it and see if I can prevent that from happening in the future.

A couple of days ago I tried to log in and it said (not in these words but something similar) too many people, like a thousand on line try again later.

Well that's not a bad thing is it.

Too busy to connect.

Try again later.

I thought it said that number, I was astounded also.

Something about the site exceeded its capacity.

Does that makes sense?
