Oops … oops … oo …

7/26 UPDATE: we’ve added more RAM to the slave database and are adding 4GB more RAM to the master database on Monday.  Are people feeling things are zippier?

UPDATE: sites are back up—and things are better than before. This is game of inches on the performance front but I think we gained about 2 inches with the last buffer move. Okay, back to goaling!

UPDATE: we’re taking the sites down for 5 minutes to increase some mysql buffers—that’s a fancy way of saying hold on for just a sec and things should get much better.

Are you getting a lot of Oops pages in the last few days? You are not alone. I could make up an elaborate explanation, or simply say: we’re working on it. More specifically, we should have two new boxes (aka webservers) up by the end of the week. That may help things hum along. In addition we’re looking into other database efficiencies to deliver us from Oopsland to the promise land.

In other news I was lucky enough to make it this weekend to the Bay Area 43T Meetup in San Francisco and met some great folks. It was rewarding as a user of 43T to meet up with a bunch of smart, insightful 43T’ers. I highly recommend attending and/or organizing a 43T meetup of your own. If you do, let us know how it goes.

P.S. If you’d like to lodge your frustration about Oops-ness, feel free to do so here in the comments. You’ll feel better if you get it off your chest.

    No worries ;) I still love you guys at 43T regardless!

    I love the way you’ve linked to 43things in a post about why the sites are down. :)

    Yes yes, I know, it’ll be back up soon and then the links will work, etc. etc.

    Seriously guys, take your time, work the bugs out. The minor bugs I’ve found on the site are more than made up for how amazing of a site it is including the community and people on it. One day I’d love to meet you guys and shake your hand, because without this site, I don’t know how much more difficult getting my life in order would have been. This tool has been beyond important in my life. Thank you.
