Re: Ugh, again?

Is it just me, or do the forums never go down? If that's the case, here's my question: Why don't you just put the site and the forums on the same server?

I'm guessing Dragoneer or somebody is going to come back and say "Well, smartass, since you asked, the server for the forums only hold text while FA holds text, graphics, audio, and video. Furthermore, FA requires more bandwidth than the forums because blah blah blah blah blah blah blah" or something like that. I have a feeling asking a question like this is like when bad stand-up comedians say something like "if the black box is the only thing that survives a plane crash, why don't they just make the whole plane that way?"

So... you like answered your own question... What?

Dragoneer said:
FA's server encountered an error and stopped responding. We restarted the server remotely. It will need to be brought back up by the coders soon.


I heard if you just drag the website onto the startup folder in the start menu, you won't need to use remote desktop to run it every time the server needs to be rebooted.

We're FreeBSD, not Windows Server.
I dread the day I have to deal with a support technician who insists I just click on Start anyway after telling him which OS I'm using.

Bringing up databases after unclean shutdowns is fraught with peril.

On a related note, I'd think FreeBSD would have a method for automatic reboot after kernel panic. That would at least remove having to wait for someone in the datacenter to have to reboot the server manually.
 
Re: Ugh, again?

And the alternative is? Never reboot the system again if it goes down? :3

Of course I was kidding about the start menu thing, since I ws pretty sure they weren't running the server on windows, but I really don't understand why exactly they can't just have the thing reload automatically.

I also don't understand why the system has so many problems. My PC hasn't crashed in weeks, and I'm using Windows. Surely FreeBSD is more stable. It's not like they're installing all sorts of crazy games, and new video card drivers and crap that would lead the system to being less stable. Runs the same website, all the time.

But I suppose if they had a bad motherboard or something and they haven't replaced it, or they repleaced it with the same brand not realising it was the brand itself which sucked, then that would explain why they have ongoing issues.

I did that once... replaced a gigabyte motherboard with another one. When I still had crashes I assumed it was every other component. Turned out that brand of motherboard was just shit, and replacing it with an asus solved all my issues.

I'm not complaining that it's down mind you. I don't blame the admins. PC's just suck. :)

Anytime FA is down, post here. Making multiple posts about downtime before reading the site status forum will be deleted.

This thread will unsticky and close when it reaches the post limit and another one much like a box of tissues will take its place.
