Entries for October, 2005

Tabulas has been really slow this past weekend - I'm really sorry and I'm working to figure out what the problem is. For the time being, I've disabled hit logging for patron accounts and tagboards for everybody. I hope to figure out quickly what's going on - thanks for your patience!

Again, I'm so sorry tagboards have been down - I'm bringing them up and monitoring how the server handles it.

To make sure tagboards don't suffer these problems in the future, I've begun to make plans to separate the tagboard servers from the Tabulas servers so they're independent. Hopefully I can get this up and running in a little bit so you don't EVER have any interruptions to your tagboard service again

Also, I've added a very small feature; any time you are logged in and viewing someone's Tabulas, you can hit Alt+Z to go back to your Tabulas or Alt+X to visit your control panel. Oftentimes when I'm Tabulas-hopping I get tired of scrolling back up to visit my own site

Note: For Macs, the commands are Ctrl+Z and Ctrl+X

Update: Hit logging functions now back up for all members as well.

After hit logging went down last week, I brought it back up. Then the database got corrupted. I've recreated the database and tossed the old data (which was causing some sort of weird corruption.

End scenario: Hit logging is back for paid users, but the old data is gone

More news on how I'll make sure this doesn't happen in the near future

. . .

In a few days, I'll be removing tags from your tagboards that are older than September 1st, 2005 if you have more than 20 tags (If your 20th most recent tag is older than September 1st, 2005, we'll still keep it). I'll be storing them into the archives which will not be accessible in the control panel immediately. If you want to keep any tags, I suggest you do copy them to your hard drive.

I'm doing this to fight the database server dying... apologies for any inconveniences this will cause.
