The boring life of Jerod Poore, Crazymeds' Chief Citizen Medical Expert.

Where in hell is Major Kong?

So, what have a managed to accomplish since nine o'clock this morning?

Fuck All.

It looks as if the tech people reinstalled MySQL after all. I got a shitload of files all over the place, including what looks like a full dump of the databases along with a duplicate of the entire directory tree of where the MySQL data are stored. My storage skyrocketed from 2% to 5%. I guess I can keep it for as long as required.

I can't find the log entries that tell me exactly what the fucking problem is with the database. I've been trying to get better logging from MySQL and that's been pretty frustrating as well. At this point I don't know if there aren't enough data to give me something to look at or if I still don't have it right. Please, try to connect to the forum. The more failures the better. I guess.

phpMyAdmin is just fucked, though. I'd love to reinstall phpMyAdmin with a newer version, but from everything I've read, nobody seems to have had any luck getting newer versions to run with Plesk.

Fucking Russians and their fucking Plesk. You'd think in Siberia they'd have nothing better to do than get the fucking code right. Instead they were probably drinking. Or, worse yet, making sure their software would work only with some shitty knock-off of phpMyAdmin that their down-on-his-luck cousin coded.

No wonder Plesk does all sorts of random shit all the time. If it's not phpMyAdmin fucking up it's the log management function crashing. Or something else that gets pissed off because it can't find the SMTP or MySQL or DNS services running. Even though if you look at them through the Virtuozzo panel or the Linux shell the fucking services are running.

Hence the title of this entry.

I'm totally feeling you, Jerod. Totally.

By the way, I want to say thank you for the time and energy that you spend on this site. It has saved my sanity, quite literally, so much since I begin taking meds 4 1/2 years ago, especially since my then fiance (now ex-) was so bloody helpful and understanding about all the crap I was dealing with.

When my next paycheck goes through, after bills, I will send a small donation, because I think that's all I can manage. But I will make an effort to do it more often than I have (I think I've only made 2).

And when the site goes back up I will totally look forward to reading on Pristiq already saw a link to a string about appetite/food cravings, which makes me happy that I was indeed NOT going nuts when I told my shrink I was experiencing HUNGER like I never had on Effexor....

I also experience extreme hangovers after drinking more than 1 or 2 beers. I can't. Even if I space them out throughout the day, like I did yesterday. The hangover I have right now is not EVEN funny.

Cheers & good luck with the server. I know you'll get it back up. You always do.
