Wiki is down!

Recommended Posts

I went to the wiki to look up the procedures to clean up a floppy drive, and I got this:

 

 

 

Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /usr/local/www/vhosts/wiki.68kmla.org/www/includes/objectcache/SqlBagOStuff.php on line 232

Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /usr/local/www/vhosts/wiki.68kmla.org/www/includes/objectcache/SqlBagOStuff.php on line 232



A database query error has occurred. This may indicate a bug in the software.

Here is the thread. It's still pending, the work is simple enough to do, but with his move, wthww has been pretty short on personal time and connectivity to make the fixes.

I worked admin years ago.  FreeBSD from the command line.  Then linux from the command prompt.  No GUI yet.   Every time I updated apache, sendmail, you name it, I would break the server.  Sometimes it took me an hour to fix it, some times more then 24.  I hated it. I got to where I was afraid to do security updates because I knew I would bring the system down and then I had to cancel all my plans until I could figure out what I did wrong.

If you have 10 or 12 user groups all over the world counting on you, and you just broke majordomo, what are you going to do?  Stay and fix it, or have a long relaxing dinner with your girlfriend?  When your girlfriend did not understand why you chose to "pay with your computer" and not her, she would leave.  Look baby, do you think I really want to stay here and pull my hair out, or do you think I would rather be in bed with you?  Excuse me for feeling somewhat responsible. 

That was a long time ago.

I have never read the wiki here.  I would like to.  But I know what the other side of the screen looks like.  Before you fix the wiki, spend a quality evening with someone you care about.  Then, get a good nights rest.  When you wake up in the morning, don't get out of bed, but sleep in.  Then get some breakfast and don't gulp that first cup of coffee down as you dash for the screen.  Sit down, look out the window, and enjoy that first cup.  After that, your mind will be ready to look into what ever you choose to look into first.  That is what I would recommend.

Just as an update. This is still on the docket, I'm talking to wthww about it right now, but I think this is our highest priority. Some errors with the infrastructure at our host came up a while back, which is the cause of it's being down at all, and so we know it's down and we are going to be working on bringing it back.

The wiki is available again. Yay!

 

All thanks go to wthww, who recovered as much as possible from before/during the infrastructure interruptions.
