    It's that damned Icelandic volcano. Why can't those Icelandians keep their ash to themselves? :(

    Time to give the ol' server blade a reboot maybe? ...Or perhaps just a boot? :D

    Sort of comforting to see it's not just me who's experienced the icelandic nature of the boards today. ;)

    There was a rogue apache2 child process sucking up a CPU core and resources for the other worker threads. Should be OK again, apologies for not having visibility of it until just now.

    I think rys should give out his home/cell phone number publicly so we can quickly fix these travesties on the internetz.

    PM is better, but in the advent things are completely dead the IRC channel is better. Various folks in there should have my cell number (and should have called or something this time :runaway: ) to get more immediate results.

    Hmm....

    Runs off and creates IRC bot to complain about slow site in middle of the night then hammer site with traffic so it will be slow for IRCers.

    The glaciality is back, with a vengeance!

    Takes like half a minute for a forum page to load, it was faster back when I was on a modem. :)
