Site Downtime Tonight (12/20)

Our MySQL server is filled up with all your blabbering, so we have to do some upgrades this evening. Expect a fairly lengthy outage tonight while the database server is upgraded.

Bah.. it's just to write everything to crystal and sink into a vault for future man kind (or lizard kind) rises up out of the ashes of the Apocalypse tomorrow!

You love my blabbering and you know it.
You just need a special "Shit B9 Says" server.
That should free up a shit ton of space!

I've been getting lots of 503 errors, database errors, and at one point I got the output of a PHP array var_dump/print_r. :/

Not quite. I'm see a few emails of new posts but the site doesn't reflect the same state:

Here is an email with a friend request (that I would decline) but the site says no requests pending approval:

Then here are 3 emails of replies to a tutorial thread, but the last post showing is the one they are responding to but not showing their responses.

The site was up for a few hours this afternoon, and then went down again. Everything that happened in that interval seems to be lost.
I think the expectation of normality proceeds from Skyhawk's announcement, but does not precede it.

Also, the friend feature will not show any pending friends, as friendship is automatically accepted. They will simply be added.

You can turn that off, Dogstopper, so that you can approve it first.
