Website downtime


Sorry about the website’s flakiness this week, folks! You may have seen been confronted by some “too many mysql connections” errors, which has been really annoying.

Sadly this isn’t because the site has been slashdotted or anything - the website runs on a shared server, and it seems that one of the other users on the same box has been getting greedy with their appetite for mysql threads, leaving none for the rest of us to play with… My ISP has assured me that they’re figuring out a way to clamp down on that kind of un-neighbourly behaviour and that it’ll all be running smoothly next week…
