comp problems

Just wanted to let you all know that some sort of weird and complicated ‘thing’ happened to the forum tonight. Something about a sphinx search and the database error and back up and rebuild. I am listening to Vlad talk to various tech and server guru’s attempting to fix the problem. To be honest, we do not know how long it will take to fix this problem. I dare not continue to ask Vlad when it will be fixed, as he seems to be blowing steam out of his ears.

So hang tight everyone! The forum should be fixed ‘soon’, and no, I have no definition of soon! Thank you for your patience :wink:

  • Jen

    We miss you! I am TPF obsessed for realz. :oops:

  • I am quite frustrated too!! They are backing something up… or something.

    All I know is last time I could get on tPF it said I was the ONLY person on and there had not been an updated thread in an hour, which was completely wrong. So there is some major glitch being fixed now.

    Thanks for hanging tight! Miss you all!

  • bgcutiepie00

  • encore hermes

    Thanks for the update megs!!!! I just bet DH 100$ that I could stay off tpf for a few hours!!!!! :lol: :lol: I check back in a ‘few’!!!

    • Well you may win… not by choice :lol:

      Still waiting for an update all! No new news from the techs and Vlad has on headphones and is working.. won’t talk to me. Hang in there!

  • KoobaLover

    Sending good vibes to the Fix-It Crew! Hope all goes well!

  • sweetneet

    thanks for the update, Megs! And thanks to both you and Vlad for all your hardwork in maintaining this great forum! Hope everything gets fixed and there are no major problems.

    man, i am sooo obsessed with this forum! i need my TPF fix! :razz: i guess the upshot is that tonight i’ll get something productive done! LOL

  • Vlad says it is coming along slowly. The techs are repairing a table that got broken, meaning data is not in order and needs to be put back into order. There were 5 million entries in that table, so it will take a while to get it fixed.

    The rough estimate is a few more hours for this to be fixed.

    Looks like I will be watching the news and waiting up with Vlad! Maybe some of you will keep us company :wink:

  • jqua

    ohhh myyyy…but i will patiently wait.. tic-toc-tic-toc… Good luck, guys..hope it will be up and runnin’ soon. Thanks!!! :mrgreen:

  • KatsBags

    Good luck with the “fix”! Thanks for all the hard work you do.

    Sorry, but I won’t be keeping you company…kids go back to school tomorrow. I’m going to bed!

    Looking forward to seeing tPF up and running tomorrow!

  • Roo

    Mr Roo had problems at work today. Lots of DOS attacks coming from domains in China. Also the financial markets abroad were not doing well today and the internet was bogged down. Let’s hope the US stock exchange does not have a black Tuesday tomorrow. All the chicken littles are freaking because the after hours markets aren’t lookin’ real good. :???:

  • noon

    Just checking in..I guess the techs are still busy working on it. Just wanted to let you know that we appreciate all your hard work Megs and Vlad :)

  • purplekitty

    Well, I just went onto the forum, and here’s something bizarre……it shows that I am the ONLY person on the WHOLE forum, 1 member(me) and 0 guests. Seriously am/was I the only person, or is this a glitch?
    Thanks for all your hard work!!

  • The forum should be back up within the next hour. Thanks for being patient!
