    No, he is in timeout too.

    I'll change that.

    Fok.

    I have someone looking into it right now. In the meantime while it was really bad I shut it down completely for a couple minutes to optimize the database. Hopefully we will get all this ironed out ASAP - sorry for the inconvenience.

    There may be some downtime coming up maybe next week - I want to get the forum upgraded and all the configuration optimized and hopefully fix the problem for good.

    Okay, for the moment I threw hardware at the problem and hopefully that will help for the meantime.

    2x the RAM, 2x the FUN.

    Well, I disabled the wiki for the moment as one of its scripts was hogging resources, and that seemed to help from then on. That was earlier and it's been reasonably okay since. But more RAM can't hurt anything and maybe it will just fix it and save me some headaches.

    This was my contribution to fixing the problem:

    Fok: "Um, people are telling me it's getting slow. Er... the forum."
    j. : "Fuck, something something technical - something about loads, the wiki, etc... The forum is broken."
    Fok: "Hmmmm (thinking). Maybe we should just go to a faster server. Totally worth it."
    j. : "Yeah, I'll probably get more RAM. We have X amount right now."
    Fok: "Yeah. We should get, like dual quad cores. Does that give us, like, an automatic 8 Gigs?"
    j : "That is the processor speed, not the RAM."
    Fok: "Oh? Yeah, I guess I knew that. Um, more RAM then. My machine here has 4 Gigs, that's what they told me."
    j: "Yah, sure. Um, can I fix the forum now, please?"

    Sort of a Dilbert-esque scenario, and I'm not sure that I come off as the smart guy.

    J, have you ever thought about a Travelling subforum? I just did some searches on hotel recommendations (didn't find what I was looking for) and was amazed how much infos came up just on a search for "hotel". Seems like we have a huge amount of travel info already now.

    Trying to figure out this new member's story: http://www.styleforum.net/member.php?u=32124 He/she just keeps posting the same sentence in every thread he/she enters. I don't get it... it's not really spamming, but maybe trying in the dorkiest, lamest way possible to build up a post count? EDIT: he/she's posting a link to a site in the sig, so I think it's def. spamming. Please send him back to Grammar School!!! [​IMG]
