Today's Downtime

Postby Madd » April 9th, 2013, 10:44:05 pm

Unfortunately, the site was down from around 8pm to 10:36pm.

There's a recurring issue which I'm having a hard time figuring out - I think it may be magical in origin.

We might go down again tomorrow, but I'll be watching much more carefully so it won't be for more than a few minutes.

Also, if anybody knows how to exorcise a hard drive, let me know.

Edit: Looks like we were down for about 45 minutes today. Same issue. Not sure what to do about it...

Other Edit: I figured it out. Some log files were trapped in the ethereal plane and I had to free them. 400GB worth of log files... it was weird. It went something like this:

Looks like Ivan's trying to get revenge on you. XD Thanks for the update though.

Something about holy water and upside down crosses. Good luck.

Holy water, salt and a devil's trap? And the Latin incantation to drive out the offending being.

It also seems to have reset all the 'view your posts' to 0 - definitely that Ivan taking over again, only he's being more sneaking this time XD. Might need to send in one of your gryphons to drop his butt over the deepest canyon they can find...if you can catch him.

What is it with April and May on this site? There are always issues and crashes around this time - every single year I've been here :lol:

The Cross of St Peter wont help anything or anyone.

I usually threaten the harddrive in question with magnets - seems to have worked with mine, no crashes or freezes for a month and counting ^.^

I can't help you with your server exorcism if you don't find the source of possession. The methods are different depending on whether it's possessed by a demon, a deity, an animal spirit, an alien, or an orgy overseer spirit.
