Long downtime. Appologies and what it fixed

Ok so the downtime was not meant to take that long. I am sorry about that. There are good excuses, but I'm not one who is big on excuses.

On the plus side, that error of "cannot insert wordmatch" should not happen nearly as often (if at all). The site as a whole should be much snappier.

Techie Explination:
-We moved a ton of MyISAM tables to InnoDB. The transition took a while to execute, and then after finishing our webserver up and died. I wrote up a quick script for daemon tools and now it should bounce if the process crashes or if the process tries to run away.

    Is it me or was session lifetime decreased? I get an impression that read/unread topics are reset much faster now than before.

    Alpha, I have questions.

    Do you ever like, nickname the more troublesome daemons? Do you imagine that they're actually little imp like demons? Do you swear at the nicknames you've created for them? Like "Damnit hittipped I totally just told you to stop dicking around". Do you do that?

    I sometimes do with my FreeBSD box at home. I just wanna know if I'm more or less insane than you are, is the thing.

    I run the gammit of things. I name them, threaten them, plead with them, offer sexual favors in exchange for uptime with them. They respond positivly to sexual favors, though MySQL is into some kinky S&M bondage stuff. :?

    I think the site should run like a greased scotsman now. Let me know if this theory proves true.

    It's pretty quick so far, but you'll have to wait for me to feel a little better before I get Kate to grease me up for a run around the block.
