    Is it just me, or is this "500 error" getting worse? Before it would happen maybe twice a day and a simple reload would fix it. Now I get it like every ten clicks and reloading or hitting back, etc. doesn't seem to fix it right away. I had the impression that this would all be sorted out when the forums were moved to the new hardware, which I though happened a few weeks ago. Am I wrong?

    E3. The forums are under serious load right now, and something delayed the switch-over, so we're still on the old hardware.

    He's right you know, Triple B

    you haven't paid a damned penny for this forum

    you should be glad you can read and post in it

    Not that it entitles us, but you do realize some of us have paid into the site, right? Back when PA accepted donations, and we even got our own sub-forum for it.

    The problem lies in something in the software on the box touches a bad piece of ram, causing the connection between the instance of the webserver and the PHP process that handles the request. The webserver takes this to mean that the server handlign the PHP processes is dead, and says 'Okay, I'll retry again in 30 seconds' Now the server the PHP processes are on, and the webserver are one and the same, but the webserver doesn't know that.
    That is a magic number hardcoded into the webserver, to fix it would require me to go into the webserver source and fix it to not wait 30 seconds, but immediatly try to recreate the connection, and then I would take the poll time down to ~5 seconds. I'm not above doing that, infact, I've done similar things for PA before, but recompiling a webserver application on broken hardware is a very tedious thing, as about half way through the rebuild, the machine will lock.
    Couldn't you just pop down the shop and get some replacement RAM or something?

    Pretty sure the server is locked up in a nice colo-center somewhere thousands of miles from alpha. Even if it was in the same city as he is, he wouldn't have physical access to it anyway, unless he gave a handjob to the security guard outside the door.

    Yeah, they're back in full force.

    I don't envy your job, Alpha, but I sure as hell appreciate your work.

    Like I said before, if you manage to fix this stuff, I'll buy you a burrito the size of your leg at PAX.
