from the necessary-roughness dept.

Pardon the short but unscheduled/unannounced site interruption. The cluster backend for our database needed to be resized as it was over 90% full and was causing performance issues. Hopefully it should all be taken care of now and shouldn't need poked at for another couple years at least.

    Apology accepted. Transparency builds trust and is a good thing, unlike many sites.

      Surely should have been "the clusterfuck dept"? But carry on.

    I hope you are wrong about the next two years, the site gets good popularity and there's much more need in space for DB :)

    Also I did not notice any interruption but then again I was not refreshing every 5 min.

    Be careful when poking backend clusters, as it can be associated with vagus nerve stimulation and potential cardiac problems [nih.gov]. Lord knows I've contributed enough shit here which others disimpact.
