Seems they drove at least 2 or 3 miles, surely they could have stopped on hard shoulder?

General Discussion Area / OOF outage over weekend
« on: 15 September 2018, 21:22:04 »
I need about 2hrs to fix OOF (well, likely to be a reinstall of the forum software and the retweaks, as that'll probably be easier). Not entirely sure when, as need to fit in, so will likely be short notice.

You will be presented with mostly timeouts, but occasional Maintenance Mode pages.  Please, if you see this, don't try again for a couple of hours, as all it does is load up the webserver excessively when people sit on the refresh button.

For once, have to agree with the journo - what knob jockey decided on a non-resilient connection....

General Car Chat / ATP, Germany

I thought I had mentioned this before, but can't see it.

I'd like to point out that they are, indeed, a complete shower of shits.  Best avoided IMHO.


My fault for a) using egay, b) not noticing the company name which I know a few members have had delivery issues with.

Fortunately, only 25, so a reasonably lucky escape, as could have been a significant amount.


Call them, and they speak good enough English right up to the point they have taken the details, then kein englisch sprechen


Egay case raised, but they are using the age old trick of repeatedly leaving it the maximum length of time before responding, and then responding with nothing of substance.

The best they can come up with is if/when it arrives, refuse it, and courier will return it, then I'll get a refund.  But they can't tell me which courier, so it will likely be left in safe place or with a neighbour, then its my expense to send it back...  ...assuming it ever does arrive. If it never arrives, it seems they refuse to refund.


Knob Jockeys.

General Discussion Area / Outage Wednesday morning
« on: 24 July 2018, 19:31:02 »
Following today's SNAFU where a storage system had a spaz, we'll need to go offline for about a hour tomorrow morning in order to resync the primary and standby databases. As this process needs to lock all the database tables, this means you will see the page forever trying to load, or get a message that SMF Database is too busy.

General Discussion Area / The British Public
« on: 14 July 2018, 10:14:37 »
I see there are no end of protests in Jockular land about Trump paying a private visit to one of his businesses for a quick break.

I also see that the Sir David Attenborough is hopefully being launched today, a boat made famous by the Boaty McBoatface voting saga.


I think we have to accept that the British public are incredibly thick and stupid, and getting orders of magnitude worse with each generation.

General Discussion Area / Hot in TB Towers
« on: 27 June 2018, 18:19:51 »
Apologies for the intermittent nature of the site, particularly Monday PM.  The temps in TB Towers exceeded 46C, which is the critical ambient temp the physical server just shuts down.

The virtual servers should have then automatically boot up on another hypervisor, but for an unknown reason didn't this time  :-\

I was in the land of the webbed feet, and under the influence of applejuice, so took a while to reliably get everything running on an alternative physical server.
