Server crash
March 25, 2019 1:44 PM - BoerumHillScott
Our cheap hosting provider over-subscribed their equipment, and our disk that had 50% free went to 0% free and crashed the server.

Along with 2 outages in the last two months, I guess it's time to look for another provider.

Remider: for any site issues, concerns, or complaints, please post them here so I can be sure to see them.

I echo everyone's thanks, Scott.

The formatting of the OT itself is a bit off. The posts are almost double-wide, the groups appear in the lower left hand corner when I'm in the OT, and there is no Top of Page option any longer.

Actually looks like the issues you mention and that we talked about in the OT are only occurring in today's OT. The Weekend OT looks normal. As do all the others.

Dave is right.

The formatting is off because a post was being made as the server was crashing/out of disk space.

My code is wonderful :) , but I did not think to handle that situation.
Tomorrow should be fine.

It seems fine now. And a lot faster than it had been.

If it seems faster. that is pure luck (or drunken bad observation)

Much faster both mobile and on my laptop. I wonder why we could be having different experiences.

Looks like the disk is filling up again. May go down soonish.

I can't look into things now, and I have heavy eating and drinking with a vendor scheduled this evening.

The hosting provider freed up a lot of space.
All looks fine now.
