    AO downtime

    Sorry guys... AO was down for a few hours today. Nice surprise to see when I woke up that the server had crashed.

    We are trying to pinpoint the problem and AO has intermittently been rebooted daily due to high loads.

    Don't worry, this problem is not being ignored and I hope to have it resolved shortly.

    Cheers.

    EDIT:
    Found the problem. Two of our mysql databases were corrupted and this caused an exponential increase in the load. It would start a query and then stall and these queries would stack and back everything up. These tables are now repaired and the load is stable.

    I have added extra monitoring software to hopefully pinpoint things if this happens again.

    Man, I was trying to access the site for hours today. I started to think it was my computer, so I was running all sorts of scans. Can anyone say withdraw!!!!!

    I finally got logged sometime after 10:00. When I saw that I was the only person (other than 16 visitors) on the site I knew for sure it was on the site end. I figured I'd just stay on, and see if anything happened, and THANK THE HEAVENS we back up and running!

    You guys probably got about a million notifications, from us members trying to access the site. Well thanks for bringing our world back in line, let's hope it stays "well".

    Thank you for working so diligently! I can't imagine what we would all do without AO.

    Here I thought that I was part of another site-upgrade-gone-wrong-causing-a-blow up and having to sign up again.

    Haha, well merry christmas to you!

    Well glad to see the site running healthy again. LOL, even though I'm never on anymore I'd still hate for this site to crash.

    And wow. For a minute there I thought you were speaking another language in your *Edited part of your post Dragon Ball.
