Yeah I also told him about that. But it's still in the loop and the only way to stop it is probably to delete the pending tweets before they are processed.

Yeah, I'd like to apologize for the delay. When we migrated the site to the new server, I found/made some free time to get all the work done. And the parts we migrated are doing really well.

But then things went absolutely crazy at work. I've been working on a giant, ambitious project work at that took longer than expected, but which finally started coming together. I've been up at all hours of the day and night dealing with dozens of servers running 80+ databases. So far it's working beautifully but I'm exhausted. And on the weekends I've been travelling and doing family stuff.

I do know how to solve the cron issue that rdearman mentions, but that will require him and me to find time to talk.

I'm fighting to get just one quiet afternoon where I have the space and time required to get the Super Challenge bot back online. I know how important it is, and I haven't forgotten it. And many thanks to rdearman for making sure that that the bot is collecting all the data.

Once again, my apologies to all Super Challengers for the extended downtime.

Is there any reason to collect the tweets only at 10:05, 11:05 etc? 05 after every hour? I'm fine with that if that's needed of course.
(but before making it more frequent it's probably better to delete the pending tweets and stop the loop)

It just uses the default 5 minute scheduler on the operating system.

It's taking long :cry: If you or emk have a backup domain can it be used for the bot in the meanwhile?

I second Serpent. Not being able to see the page makes it very confusing. I just tried to tweet a movie, but the bot tweeted back that I'm not studying that language. However, I had tweeted a movie in that language earlier and it was OK. Or at least, the tweet was answered in the normal fashion. I can't really tell if it got added to the list because I can't see the list.

are you sure it was the SC bot and not the 6WC one? I've scrolled to March and I'm not seeing any Japanese tweets @ langchallenge.

Yes. It was 4 May and the bot answered that I had watched 86 minutes in Japanese, but now it says I'm not registered for Japanese.

I put up a temporary site for you to look at your statistics. Should do everything you need until the permanent site gets re-established.
