Server Glitches

My server farm seems to have had a few power issues which caused the server to crash.  Had to do 2 reboots so far today - hopefully we're back to normal.


Ugh - sorry everyone.  Should be fine for now - if you're interested:

Upon further research "The PDU the server is connected to is failing" which indicates that the Power Distribution Unit (PDU) to which the server is connected is experiencing problems or malfunctions.

A PDU is a device used to distribute electric power to multiple devices within a data center, server room, or any other IT infrastructure. It acts as a central hub for power distribution, providing electricity to various servers, networking equipment, and other devices.

When the PDU is failing, it means that there is an issue with its functionality, which can result in a loss of power supply to the connected server. This could lead to the server going offline, causing downtime and potential data loss or service interruptions.

My server guys replaced the PDU and we're back up and running!

I wish it was that easy.

Maybe if you paid the server a living wage instead of relying on tips!

Oh, wait...


Couldn't access the site all day and now it looks like this.

ETA:  Screen shot won't post but basically all images are replaced with  question marks.  I am in the US today so I don't think it is a Canada thing.

Further ETA:  I see this is addressed on another thread and the whole thing just reminds me to thank Jamie for all the work he puts into keeping this place going.


Assuming we are back.  I just got in with no warnings.  

Jamie:  Thank you so much for the long and hard work that made this possible.


That’s why you all need to get a “Jamie space “

Thanks it's tricky to get into the deets for what happened - still need to get the images working - hopefully I can figure this one out today.  If not - programmer's will be avaailable on Monday  next.  I have a few ideas.


Looks like we’re back!


I don’t know if it’s related, but the Twitter widget wasn’t working for me. The tweet looks fine in the preview but ends up like this when I post:


Trying this out - I removed the emoticon from the code.


Here's the workaround.  Not sure if I'll get a better fix in the near future - the editor is a third party script - so it's a little trickier to modify.


and . . . . that was a pretty crazy strike call!
