    Site Outage: Feb 25, 2009

    Re: Site Outage: Feb 24, 2009 Kudos for owning up to it, Dragoneer. Not many admins have the balls to admit a mistake like that was made; they'd rather let the "hacker" brag then let themselves look bad. You rock. And we don't need to know who actually made the mistake. I'm sure he/she is...

    Admin Control Panel

    Interesting.... Maybe he was exploiting broken ISP-side proxycaching, though I doubt this guy could pull it off. Personally, I'm betting on weak/guessed/saved/leaked passwords. -.-

    Admin Control Panel

    A crime is a crime, regardless of the target. And last time I checked, breaking into any computer system, regardless of how secure it is, is a crime.

    Admin Control Panel

    *sigh* I guess that's one advantage to the WMF format: There's no limit to how big you can scale your e-penis. -.- [/offtopic] I can understand the admins' desire not to post details about the breach until after the hole is plugged, but I'll be looking forward to seeing how this fuckwit...

    Virtual servers work great in most circumstances, but performance tends to suffer pretty badly in scenarios that involve a lot of disk I/O, like DB servers. Virtualize anything else, but DB servers are best left on bare metal.

    Yak to the rescue! You rock, as usual. :)

    Site down 2009-01-01

    The Dell is the new DB server, and the Sun is the new app (web) server. Because of a variety of delays (thanks, DHL & CDW), it's taken a while to put the Sun into service, so the Dell was (still is?) doing double-duty as both the DB and app server. The Dell is robust enough to handle the load...

    Site down 2009-01-01

    Aaaand, it's back down. XD That's what I thought as well. At the moment, it seems the issue is that there isn't anyone available to log into the lights-out server to see what's going on.

    *chuckles* I was about to say, when did we swap our DB server for a Zune? ;)

    Outage? (502 errors)

    Now I'm getting the FA "will return shortly" page, so at least it looks like the admins are on it.

    Outage? (502 errors)

    Just started getting a bunch of 502 errors while browsing the site. Anyone else seeing this?

    CDW... is Retarded

    Wow... Just wow.... *chuckles*

    FA - Back Online

    The server didn't crash, it's just struggling under the load of everyone hammering it at once.

    FA - Back Online

    Pretty much, yes. How a system behaves in a controlled environment, and how a system behaves when it's getting hammered are two entirely different things, and often there's no way to really simulate the latter adequately, so you don't find out until it goes live. The fact that the server is...
