Sorry duderinos.  I forgot the database password and rrenaud wasn't around to remind me what it was.  Who is at fault?  The forgetter, or the absent reminder?

faults only count in horseshoes and hand grenades

I thought you thought it was a slip because I said 'Jake's partners' instead of 'Roadrunner7671.'

The forum. It was down. I would happily help pay for the forum to not be down on the weekends. Start a Patreon, Theory!

I'm glad to see the forum up again.  I am curious as the reason for the downtime events, as there have been a few during the short time I have been a member.  I see that the static HTML portion of the website is up during these events. It's only the dynamic PHP pages that have issues.   When I've had such issues on web sites I've run, it related to one of 3 things -- a never ending script/program, a short burst of traffic from publicity such as a radio show mention, or bots.  I once had tens of thousands of bots trying to sign up on a forum in a period of less than a minute.  I had to IP block a good portion of China until I figured out how to prevent it.    Feel free to not answer, if you'd prefer.  I appreciate the forum and do not mean to be offensive.   Instead I am curious and also hoping some one here might have ideas for preventing future issues.

F.ds is always down these days. I wonder if it is a secret message by Theory. Like morse code. He's probably telling me to get a life.

I remember there was one motivational-style meme that kept getting reposted and recaptioned, like one original picture with a caption, then the whole thing (with the caption) got an additional border and caption under it, then all of that got another border and caption around that, and on and on and on until finally someone did one where it was two stick figures looking down into this abyss of captioned captions, and one of the stick figures pushes the other one in.

You could have gotten a whole lot of respect if you actually did it instead of telling us about it.

Theory accidentally flipped the f.ds switch when he was turning off all the lights.  ;D
