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.

    1. That spammer journal is Korean, not Japanese.
    2. It is a true spammer, advertising a gambling site. I'd call that a soylent squatting.
    3. Very invalid Korean really can break some Unicode implementations, as well as some other scripts can.
    4. Future wave of emoji accepted to the next standard may be dangerous too.
    5. I didn't broke it :]

      Monolingual illiterate uneducated non-edificated ignorant Americans. I will now say, "fuck you" in a non-English language, and you will not even know you have been insulted!
