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.

    I think yours is the one that broke it. If you go via martyb's search, all of your entire paragraphs are links. If you go via your username, journals, click on collecting metadate etc, you get a journal entry that is properly formatted with discrete links.
    Other users' journals are ok.

    Nobody's entry broke it or it wouldn't have started working again as soon as I bounced the mysqld instances on the web frontends.

    My rights don't end where your fear begins.
