End-of-year maintenance
« on: December 20, 2018, 10:55:05 AM »
I will do some larger-scale maintenance on the site in the last week of December. I do not expect any significant downtime, and will announce both here and on Facebook if it becomes necessary, but if you see a call to copy your posts to clipboard before clicking "submit" in the next week-and-a-half, do please heed it.

ToDos:
-routine database backup and maintenance (table optimization, various recounts, reindex, etc)
-an attempt to improve database connection stability (solve the problem of very short, <1 second, drops in service throughout the day. I'm not certain that I can, but I will try)
-scheduled software updates (among them, some manual updates to files affected by mods)
In Asmo's grey lump,
wrath and dark clouds gather force.
Luxembourg trembles.

Good job!
If religions were TV channels atheism is turning the TV off.
“Religion is a culture of faith; science is a culture of doubt.” ― Richard P. Feynman
'It is said that your life flashes before your eyes just before you die. That is true, it's called Life.' - Terry Pratchett
Remember, your inability to grasp science is not a valid argument against it.
