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.

    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.

    Blah, it's got too many words if it's not about me. Or boobs.

    My rights don't end where your fear begins.
