Something about too many rainbow avatars...

Anyway, there's a temporary chatroom for me to prove that I can be smarmy, sarcastic, cutting and vaguely humourous on a spontaneous basis.

<evil laugh>

Maybe it was the 100 posts per day that certain people feel compelled to make...

I'd laugh if all the posts counts were lost on there.

Perhaps it was the elegant design combined with bleeding-edge functionality that consumed more than the site's share of available bandwidth.

I'm sad to report that the gang on the QOL chat tonight is not quite the Algonquin Round Table. Clearly, P_G has left the building, dammit.

Technically it hasn't "crashed", it just didn't come back up after they moved it from one location to another. I don't know the specific issues, but they had database problems and they are trying to acquire backups from EMI as far as I know who aren't exactly the fastest moving company in the world as we all know.


If it aint broke...



Fix it til it is.

Ian,

just out of curiosity,
and if you can disclose such info,
and I know nothing of how phpBB works:

what kind of OS/DB do they use?

TIA

The backend of a phpbb forum is usually a relatively straight forward MySQL database although phpbb can be installed on several different types of database usually MySQL is the most common and popular choice for it, the OS is irrelevant as MySQL servers can be efficiently run on Windows or Linux although generally run better on Linux. The front end of the forums is php (as the name suggests) with a bit of Javascript for good measure. The QOL forums have been modified a fair bit by myself but I have backups of all of that side of things, regretfully the only thing I don't personally have a backup of is the main database. I only have a test database I use for development work on the site before putting stuff live.

It's actually quite amazing how the board has been down for so long. The level of incompetence that these buffoons are showing is simply mind blowing. How in heaven's name can a message board be down for FIVE DAYS! How? What on earth are the fucking imbeciles doing?

Not that I'm bothered...I have a life, but some people rely on it. ;-)

They can't even construct a proper sentence to let you know that the board is down....

"We are currently experiencing some problems with message board. "

There is no reason for it to be down this long. If it's a database issue, they either have a backup or they don't. It would take less than 5 mins to restore a backup of PHPBB.
