As you're probably aware we experienced some unplanned downtime today. It has been claimed it was entirely the fault of Russian Hackers. They invaded fluorine and caused the database updating code in rehash to not update the database this last site update. Which is just as well, I suppose, since two of the SQL statements refuse to complete even when run manually. That I'm going to have to chalk up to a misconfigured ndbd on helium and neon.

tl;dr The long and short of it is, we'll be fine until we can get those updates into the database, but it is going to mean more downtime this weekend.

    When should we expect the announcement of intentional unplanned shuttering of the site due to insolvency because you stole all the money and flew away.

    How far can you actually run with $455, these days?

      Oh that's not hard unless you get it in nickles or something.

        I was afraid it would be in cryptocoin, which would cause you to have to switch every other mile between the Rolls and the used bicycle.

    What money??

      I know, right? At any given time we could probably bankrupt ourselves by taking the staff out for a night of drinking. Not even a wild night of it. Just take everyone to a bar, drink until closing time, and be broke in the morning.

        You're not broke, you still got a boat. Us people with real money and a career just don't call your boat liquid assets - because liquid would mix with the water and not float, unless it's oil. As long as you're able to get on a boat to get you and the brick to the middle of the lake, you're fine and a winner. Not quite a Tiger Blood type of winner, but something like Chiwawa blood type of winner.
