No permanence. Everything is still running on bailing wire and used chewing gum.

Probably for another _week_. Groan.

... MacGuyver? Is that you?

Nah. If you were MacGuyver you wouldn't be patching your servers up with bailing wire and chewing gum, you'd make a brand new server out of them. :razz:

I'd also just like to say that you guys are awesome.

Putting up with so much, being so cool, making such awesome things. Just generally being cheery and forgiving.

Too bad more of you won't be at PAX! We could raid the Kongregate booth :)

You are forgiven for assuming that we are forgiving.


But just this once :xd:

If only I had the money to go to PAX...:( :( :( :(

But I've solved your problems for the moment, Pacifist! Behold, I got the little red pill of happiness and hallucination over your stress level and down into your square, red mouth:

A previous attempt didn't quite make it but did amount to one of the best balances I've ever done:

Pacifist updates me, the new server cluster should go into action hopefully by early next week. Another few days of database timeouts, unfortunately. :sigh: Bear with us! Almost there!

It's all good, bro. We'd be making contraptions in our heads without you.

And that is the first stage of madness :woop:

The second stage of madness is being in my garage, designing a tire rack, and thinking which supports should be brown and which should be blue... :doh: :argh: :pseudo:

A quick update; Pacifist has been toying with some database structures on the old server in an attempt to patch up the performance a bit. You might get the occasional odd error as levers are pulled ... Still getting the new server cluster early next week at a new host. When the servers are deployed there might be a bit of downtime (DNS issues themselves can take up to 24 hours; database wrangling and reconfiguring might take a few hours). But after that we should be golden!

(oh and for the few who asked a long time ago - yes the databases are indexed. don't be silly. :P Obviously if you have any ideas on how to improve database responsiveness we are all ears; we have over 200 active database connections at any given time - reading and writing all sorts of junk)

Can we get a warning a few hours beforehand this time? You've always just kind of suddenly popped these upgrades on us. :P

Yeah it's one of those things where we ask for upgrades and the host said "sure! it'll be done ... today ... probably" :pseudo: and we just sit and cross our fingers.

That's one of the reasons why hosts are changing.

I think you'll see everything has sped up now except saving.... hopefully it holds!

My workplace is SOOO lucky that flash gets blocked here, or I'd be on this game like white on rice, and end up being fired for lack of productivity.

;)
Sure
