All fixed.............again......................for now.......................... Charlie has been busy with these outages. Call it late spring cleaning. Maybe posers from the other side of the Atlantic/Pacific are tunneling in, attempting to mine Saturnfans for its wealth of information.....................you never know. The Chinese have some of our stealth designs, Israeli's supposedly undermined the software in Iraq's nuclear production programs, Eastern Europeans have just been arrested in the largest credit card mining operation and .....................

Excuse me as I have to run an errand to my local hatter - need my hat to be refitted with new aluminum foil. Thank goodness my car doesn't have OnStar (for law enforcement/OnStar to order EFI disablement remotely). I already have the equivalent; my crank sensor decided to die on me last year..............

Dazed Re: Server is Busy

Now now, aluminum foil doesn't work. There are no such things as space aliens trying to put signals into your head.

You need to use Titanium foil. That's the ticket.
It stops the international corn conspiracy moles from enticing you into investing in overpriced ethanol futures through the cell phone signals they aim at your hypothalmus...... Everybody knows that......

OK I'll bite. Can you recommend a hatter specializing in titanium foil? We're woefully not very sophisticated here in the BIG APPLE. It may be due to too many Concorde flights over NYC, deleting our ozone layer. Perhaps the Left coast didn't suffer Concorde-itis when they were the only express flights for the moneyed.

Corn subsidies? Nooooooo, say it ain't so. Turn food into fuel? What did I miss? My hearing is gone so its more difficult to read nowadays....................

Titanium foil's actually not very expensive.

http://www.amazon.com/Titanium-99-6-.../dp/B0052ENGLY

Any good aluminum hat liner maker should be able to adapt to titanium. Just use sharper shears. If it prevents one poor soul from losing their Starbuck's money in the hyper inflated corn futures market, it is worth it.

Out here on the Left Coast we didn't really see Concorde traffic, but we have Chinese smog blowing in from the west and freighters dumping their ballast tanks in the bay. Plus we have the pirates of Silicon Valley to contend with.

Be patient. This slight interruption is just another way to say not all things in life is free without some issues. Hopefully, Saturnfans will be around for a long time with few web site issues. They come and go so waiting a little pays off. The wait is worth it.

Yes, there is that as well, although most of it is coming ashore farther north from us.

Wrench Re: Server is Busy

My apologies for all of the server issues lately. When I was repairing the database last week I uncovered a number of other problems that were causing the site to occasionally act slow. Every night I've been tinkering with the site, running scripts in the background in an attempt to optimize the database. Some of these scripts take up a lot of resources (which cause the server busy messages) and take a few hours to run. In a few cases, the scripts have hung and I've had to manually restart them. These problems are all stemming from a series of spam attacks that happens several months ago. The former "blog" section of the forums was hit particularly hard... causing table sizes in the database to become much larger than I had initially thought. These are all being fixed now, which will allow the server to operate much more smoothly and efficiently. I expect to be done working on the site in a couple of days. Hopefully, the rest of my work will be transparent and you won't see many more of the server messages.

I apologize for the inconvenience. I am working hard to get the site back in tip-top shape!! I think we're almost there!

Thanks for your support,
Charlie
