Ongoing database issues
While the move was generally successful and most of the servers are happy, the process has either created or exposed an ongoing instability in the database system. One of the database servers unexpectedly locked up on Sunday, March 8th. We're working through problems this has caused and attempting to fix file system errors that have accumulated over the last few years and that are causing increasingly frequent system locks.

We hope to have this sorted out by sometime tomorrow. Until then please be wary of posting anything that would be difficult to replicate.

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.

Well, yes this is pretty sloppy on our part. First issue is that the tribe rss feeds no longer can even be manually updated since the move (automatic RSS updating has been broken for over a year). Thus this notice, which we did post on 10 March, never made it to people's homepages. Secondly, we continue to have ongoing database issues, even three weeks after the move. The issue yesterday (Thursday), was very similar to what happened on 8 March -- the master database server suddenly went down. In the repair process at some point the feeds were updated (finally). As we get more information, we'll post an update on the blog. You can still at least bookmark the blog and see when new posts arrive there on your bookmarks page... I know it's suboptimal and we are definitely working on the problem!

I know you guys are working on it.. and to be quite honest I haven't been feeling up to posting anyway.. there's something about medical procedures that drain your system of fluids and masses that make for a slow return lol..
