Site down - 7 Nov 05

Apologies for those who have been trying to get online for the last 2 hours or so. It appears that the database had been switched off for reasons that are currently unclear. I'm hoping GCO may know more!

Thanks for the info - had to do some work there for a while.
I know exactly what you mean Mur - had a slight 'wibble' moment myself!
Of course this could be a cunning CBI/MOD ruse to drastically increase productivity ......
I just spent time on Arrsepedia! Nope not a drop of work from me!
Phew i thought the I.T Police had but a block in then. Panic over - over
Tell GCO that there were intermittent 'failure to access database' messages before and since the close-down.

Suspect there's an underlying frailty somewhere along the line and it may switch off again.
Some investigation.....

1. It is likely that the main problem was caused by GCO (probably ....)

2. The failure to access db messages are caused by us restarting the server in an attempt to eke more performance out of it. Fear not though, our £1800k new bad boy server should be here in the next week or so and banish all these performance issues .....

Spotted this ruse and had a wander around too. I noticed that if you start on the right of the links and move left you eventually hit the errors.
Never thought of hitting Arrsepedia - still don't know how to add your Arrse User definition - thought i should put one in there before someone else "helps me out"!

I was having a tin-foil-hat moment (or hour!) and thought that the dissenting voices from the past day or two had been noted by the Neu Arbeit Thought Police and that something sinister was afoot! 8O :oops:
phew, thought the boss had done something to the works server and blocked me out, i've just been nice to him incase, damn!!
the poppy from my medals has gone!!!
Smart arrse :)
