But there could be another problem once its fixed

Can it handle the extra loads on as people find out it back on like and crash it . So ain;t got a lot to up load at moment, Thinks will leave it till next week once things quieten down.


Karl I need to buy you a beer! Your description of a fault condition is exactly what concerns me when we get things going. I have no method of throttling logins. Your plan to wait a few days is probably very wise.

If I say OK, lots of people will rush and it may well fail, people will email me and people will post messages.

I can say OK but if it fails, leave it for 3hrs and try again. People will keep trying and trying and wont leave a few hours.

So there will be issues when it gets sorted. I’m resigned to the fact.

What about throttling on IP range connections through the DNS which I assume is central to the hosting company ? So that only a certain number of connections are made from each region until the system stabilizes ?

Just thinking aloud.


JD goes down well :scream:

Like said just going to wait till it settles down again
Its not a desperate thing it can wait must remember to date the sotas. when worked them as normally enter of daily basis.

Cheers andy


Only a fool would drink Jack in a crisis :wink:

FYI Andy probably has some defined favorites in that area.


His expertise with malt whisky matches his ability with code!

Well, I’m sitting here with a fast-evaporating bottle of Laphroaig Quarter Cask, but then again I’m not waiting to login! <settles back even further into the comfy chair…>

This DB issue is payback for sampling 9 whiskeys (Irish ones) in Dublin airport duty free hall last week. In Edinburgh you have to work hard to get a 2nd tot in the duty free sales area. In Dublin you have to walk away or they keep pouring… what a wonderful place Dublin is.

Yum. I tried Laphroaig that was finished off in Pedro Jiminez sherry casks. Boy oh boy, that was good.

Database stuff: there’ll be a status update later this afternoon.

Dublin’s fair city, where the girls are so pretty…

Especially when seen through the bottom of a glass!

Dublin ohhhh

And there’s another one that comes to tip of me tongue


You Folk should drink Mountain Dew

You might as well say Irn Bru or Dandellion & Burdock!

Middleton Very Rare - now there’s a whiskey😎 (Other brands do exist of course)

I drink black tea mostly .

Go easy on the black tea:


“Strain the tea out of the bourbon, discard the tea”

Surely they got that backwards?
