So, the transition to new webservers by our web hosts created all sorts of problems today.
Rugby-Talk was suspended, the SQL Database was blocked… we were OFF AIR for a day!
It felt like I was the naughty child who had to go stand in the corner and it reminded me of the old fighting days when Pietman, myself, Cuzzy, Kwagga and the old fighters from the bad old Voldy days would get banned, suspended and worked our way around the impediments till we were shouting from the rooftops again, fists bared and the bit between the teeth.
Apparently Rugby-Talk was using too much CPU time on the server, or as they termed it “An inordinate amount of CPU time”.
Well, we’re up and running again, but we still need to bring certain elements back on line, our User-Online Widget on the righthand sidebar, our Recent Comments and a number of Plugin’s which perform behind the scenes. We will slowly bring those back, then enquire whether from the web hosts whether we’re still running within spec, then bring some more back… and so we will continue.
Thank you for your patience, it is appreciated!
