    Man, when did Trans Mod become a homeless shelter for all the SF social rejects?

    TS thinks I'm an asshole and a sorry excuse for a father but I don't think that he can't stand me.

    Spalla thinks I'm a communist of marroquian descent struggling to get a work visa in america, but something tells me that he sympathizes and identifies with my "situation".

    frenchy, I don't know what your issue is - other that you're despised around here and people laugh at you for fun.


    I want to like you because of your taste in watches and your cute avatar. but you like to attack obamists and non-english speaking folks so I'm still undecided.

    Okay, I guess we are 'on the calendar' for tomorrow night instead. Commence drunk-poasting as much as is allowable with the current hardware. Downtime tomorrow 1AM PST-ish!

    I assume so. I honestly am stuck on exactly what caused it but we are at the point where vBulletin is limiting us quite a bit (huge threads especially)

    So big threaks aren't a problem then? DT FTW!

    May I request that Manton submit a picture for our new Database Error/404 page? Maybe one of him biting through a bundle of cables like Jaws in the Bond films. Just a suggestion [​IMG]

    You are not going to that horrible Huddler software I hope. That's about killed two fora I am familiar with.

    I don't suspect that vBulletin is to blame. There are two site that work really well with it.

    That's pretty much exactly what I just said. I just ran a repair on the database just in case, but it's still slow as hell. I am assuming some config file got messed up in the upgrade process last night. Unfortunately I have to leave for a while but I will get on it ASAP. Ughhhh..

    BTW, does anyone know how to configure MySQL to run any temp files off a RAM disk? We have 8GB of RAM now, this should not be this slow.

    They hadn't installed multiprocessor support so we were running on one of 8 CPUs... [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    We'll see how it is now.

    Not to get too cocky, but it does seem to be running better.

    Oh man. I might be able to start browsing/posting on styleforum again. Not sure if that's a good thing for me/the foru but the site is definitely running better. Nice work (knock on wood)
