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.

    But takyon's journal sucked racist southern donkey balls. Just saying.

    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.

    It is a known fact that mysqld has a liberal bias.
    Kill takyon's journal entry and very likely the things will go back to normal - until Runaway post in his journal, that is. (grin)
