    SPF Dead?

    Woah, I've never seen so many DB errors. Looks like it's working now, but for how long?

    Yeah, I agree, but it forced me to actually clean up my machine, so I knew it wasn't me, so some good came of it.

    I couldn't stop thinking about the number of e-mails the dbmaster@sitepoint.com will get from vB mysql error warning script due to the numerous attempts to access SP.

    It's only a guess but judging by the timing and the performance we have now it seems possible. I guess they'll confirm if this is true or not. I'm hoping it is because that means a faster SP!

    Wow, that's weird. I didn't get those at all.

    BTW, it's supposed to be all sorted now. Hopefully it will be better now.

    Yes we we're all forced to actually do something other than browse the forums

    I got online at noon and nothing had changed. I am still the last post in the Flash forum and that was 3am (US central time)

    not sure what the problem is I haven't got the latest from HQ, but sorry its not a server move - that would take much longer and the downtime was when the guys were asleep - as in they moved the server whilst asleep
