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.

    Yeah, we solved that by welcoming the trolls with open arms in IRC. They even eventually talked me into coming on staff. You can spout feminist stuff all day, you can mock feminists by shitposting feminist stuff all day, you can even do like EF and show everyone a picture of your dong. Losers, bastards, and freaks of all kinds are shown in and handed a beverage.

      It's liberating when you realize offense is never given but always taken. You decide if you want to be offended or not; nobody else. Once you figure that out, trolling is at worst boring. Often it's hilarious.

    I tried this once in IRC, but I had problems making an accurate representation. The '=' has the bars too close together and I am constantly hitting the end of the line and forced to line wrap before the length is right.

      Ahhh, a burden I know all too well. Try for humility instead of accuracy. It's kinder to those less fortunate.
