The last couple weeks have been particularly depressing.

Sports / Re: Lol fuck the nfl
Cool. Another year. Past a certain point, I wonder if, assuming the NFL mgmt and owners ever stop being shitheads, people will get back into the habit of  wasting weekends/Mondays watching games.

The server was down for several hours yesterday evening/early this morning.

We've found the issue with the fpm process manager and have since taken action.
It _should_ stay online now without further intermittent downtime, the problems should be resolved. :)

I really like that their servers are named from Norse mythology. Being on the Loki server is perhaps a little bit of a sign, though.

We were originally on Asgard.

Hi,

Thank you for opening a ticket.
You're currently hosted on server "Loki".

We have indeed noticed downtime yesterday and a couple (3) short interruptions in May.
They usually don't last longer than in between 2 to 8 minutes, but that's not supposed to happen either - we strive to deliver 100% uptime.
We're currently analysing it, it's caused by a rather complex condition in combination with a software bug that manages the so called "resource pools". We're working on resolving this and whilst we're working on that, we are keeping a very close eye on the server to ensure that the downtime is kept to a minimum - should the issue present itself.

I apologise for any inconvenience.


Kind regards,
- Dude Who Saved the TR Database.

NextDoor is a major thing in my area. And the threads and comments are enough to make me want to move far, far away from the rest of humanity.

I've opened a ticket with the webhost.  Will let you guys know what I learn.

Compassionate conservatism in Louisiana

"This make us look heartless," said Senate Finance Chair Eric LaFleur, D-Ville Platte.

Sen. Bodi White, R-Baton Rouge, said he believes sending the notification to nursing home residents and others in long-term residential care is premature.

"I don't see how in good conscience they can do that to these older folks," White said.

Sen. Sharon Hewitt, R-Slidell, said the Department of Health should be focused on identifying fraud and saving money there "rather than kicking grandma out of the nursing home."

If I understand the details correctly, the senate and assembly can't even talk about taxes during a regular session.

Assuming they get their shit together, they want to close the regular session early and have a special session in May where they talk about raising taxes for Medicaid.

That had to have cleared one hell of a bar with the judge who approved it, to wiretap the personal lawyer of a sitting president.

This article is about the history of police infiltration of leftist groups in the UK, but we see enough in US news to know it happens in the US, too, and has been happening for years.

What time was the site down?

I'm not really sure where to put this article.  The guy is a POS, but his reach atm is fairly restricted.

Clayton is a former Texas board of education member.  He may or may not be running for that office again this year.  As well as random twitter-drivebys harrassing non-white high school students celebrating their admission to ivy league universities, he's repeatedly gone after David Hogg and the Margery Douglass school survivors as a whole.

He falls into a weird private citizen category right now, which is maybe why his tweets haven't drawn more attention.

He'll take credit

Quinnipiac poll has the Texas senate race between Cruz and Beto at too close to call - 44% each

Lots of time between now and November for things to change.   :ohdear:

Pittsburgh police are to bring their riot gear with them to work starting tomorrow over rumors that Trump is going to fire Mueller this week or something.

Maybe if you'd been a Russian troll this wouldn't have happened.  You're supposed to steal identities, not create obviously fake ones.

Yeah, it's resurfaced.  May or may not be relevant, I guess.
