This is to inform you we *are* aware of a problem with the site.

Symptom: The "Most Recent Journal Entries" box that normally appears on the right-hand-side of the main page is currently not currently displaying.

We have tried a few things, but have had no luck so far. We will update this story when we know more.

Problem first became apparent at about 17:45 UTC today.

Workaround: Use Search to look at the most recent journal entries. Specifically:

We will update this story when we know more. I have done all I (martyb) know how; hopefully TheMightyBuzzard will show up before too long and get things straightened out.

[Update-TMB]: The local mysqld instances on both web frontends both decided to be On The Crack for some reason or other. The database itself running over on the db servers was just fine and a restart of mysqld (and bouncing of Apache/Varnish which has to be done whenever mysqld is restarted) on the web frontends put things back to normal.

The cause of mysqld's drug use is unknown and shall remain so unless it happens more than once.

    My latest journal entry has quite a long title, and I edited the title today (from "Part 2", to ", Supplemental") which made it even longer. Not sure how close that was to 17:45 UTC. I would have thought it was earlier. It probably has nothing to do with it but I just wondered if the titles overflowed a maximum string length or something.

    Anyway, good luck and thanks for all the great work on the site, guys!

      Just tried shortening the title, and removing the punctuation, to "Humanity Failed Supplemental" and the journal box didn't come back, so I guess it was either nothing to do with that, or whatever broke stayed broken. :)

            Not sure, I didn't read it. The title was curious to me as the members of the Hermitcraft Minecraft server [hermitcraft.com] played a version of tag this season they called "Tag 2: Electric Boogaloo." [fandom.com] The similarity was striking if only coincidental.

    I emailed you guys last night and early this morning about some of the stuff I noticed. I don't think what I reported was likely to be reproducible but it sounded like The Mighty Buzzard was working to resolve whatever he could reproduce from my email and perhaps other emails he received. I was impressed to get a reply so quickly, within an hour or so early in the morning. It reminded me a bit of how Slashdot was back in the day when CmdrTaco would reply to pretty much every email he received, no matter how insignificant the request might be. I didn't agree with everything Slashdot did, but I really appreciated that CmdrTaco cared enough about the site's users to reply to pretty much everyone who contacted him. I see the same thing with SN's staff and I really appreciate it. I know I can be an ass at times in the comments but I really do appreciate the hard work by the admins around here. Thanks!

        Yeah, no need to sling insults at someone retreating to their safe space.

        Oops.

      He would be soooo maaaaad about Harley Davidson telling Tennessee racists to go fuck themselves :D

      I'm loving that corporate America is on the side of morality. Possibly for many corporations it is mostly about demographics and how the majority of consumers will not support racist institutions so they're doing the smart PR thing, but I don't really care.

      I must admit I giggled a little at HD joining this political/cultural fight against racist conservatives, the douche bags debating whether to boycott their favorite 30k motorcycle must be having a real hard time.

        Are you saying exaeta is a biker? Or that Ari is? Don't mess with Ari, if he is a biker, because those guys don't use logic.

    Thank goodness the journal box is back up, so that we can all be treated to what Runaway1936 thinks, or at least thinks he thinks, for some values of "thinking". I expect an Ari journal any hour now. exaeta, appearantly, got dinged for mod-bombing, and is leaving.

      Spam mod abuse. Mod-bombing doesn't carry any penalty except moderation reversal because we should be doing that on the servers instead of punishing users.

      Ooooohhhh

      That makes so much more sense than the "people are doody heads" whining. Always the tantrum when any kind of consequences are implemented, and here I thought the motto of the rightwing was Personal Responsibility. He's been around too long to not know that spam mods are actually heavily punitive and should not be treated lightly.

    The cause of mysqld's drug use is unknown

    No, the cause is known. You say exactly the cause above: "mysql".

    You are using the toy database that should never be used for anything even remotely important.

    Sadly, you also probably have no choice, because the soylent code probably assumes 'mysql'.

    For the record, my journal entry was specifically designed to be linked as a citation to a specific person in a thread and the title of it reinforces this usecase. I thought this was just a thing the site did cause of overhead or some such.

    Now I understand why someone from staff showed up there. I mean I pick on one of you. But slightly different situation. Sorry.

        You wish your generic-libertarian-veil of nonsense was enough to get me to write an entire journal entry specifically for you man, but no. I said it wasn't staff related and literally the second word names who it was for.

        My problems with the site aren't staff related besides personal issues with you cause I hate unnuanced nonsense. The actual issue that'll turn this into yet another conspiracy bigfoot generic clusterfuck site are the little shits that crawl around on here thinking they're going to be ignored cause they're used to the "don't feed the troll" logic and think it gives them permission to be the digital equivalents of people in trenchcoats jerking off publicly. The journal entry is a link for later to beat the individual in question over the head with until they stop playing victim and spreading their listicles of circular logic & aimless rhetoric flinging.

    Have you thought about implementing a watchdog? Most problems you seem to have are fixed by restarting the process. That could be a quick setup with the right canary calls and PID checks. The watchdog daemon is very flexible and allows custom test/repair executables and can take stronger actions if necessary. Despite what many of the tutorials online say, you don't have to resort to STONITH if you use it, despite that being the original use case.
