Sorry for the outage! 503 Errors

Postby rdearman » Sun Jun 12, 2022 1:39 pm

Hello everyone. Apologies for the outage over the last 24 hours or so. This time it wasn't the spammers, but rather the server itself was hung. I eventually worked out what was wrong and did a reboot, and we seem to be up and running now.

The long delay is completely my fault because I wasn't looking at the right thing even though the error message was telling me exactly where the problem was! Dooh! What should have been a 10 minute fix actually took me ages.

On the bright side I got loads of work done! :lol:

Thanks for working it all out.

To have talked much and read much is of more value in learning to speak and write well than to have parsed and analysed half a library.

You should never apologize, we should just thank you.

I agree that there's no need to apologize. Thank you for getting this outage sorted out.

Rick, IMHO, you never need to apologize. You're working for free. We thank you!

Still, better you on the job than me. With me, expect a few months, members leaving in droves and me wishing to burn all computers on earth into non-existence :lol: Thank you for the fix! Apology accepted, but only just ;) You owe me BIG time! Consider paying your debt in language learning materials....

Joking aside (but not for long!), this forum is worth so much to us language nerds, enthusiasts, aficionados, and I think it's evident in our replies (except mine, the ungrateful moron that I am) that we sincerely appreciate your work as well as the rest of the team :D

Actually I would have agreed with you about "wishing to burn all computers on earth into non-existence " a couple of hours into troubleshooting the thing! :lol:
