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

Brace yourselves

The switch to the new server just happened.  It will take anywhere from one to 48 hours for the DNS to propagate all across teh interwebs, so some of you will still see the old stuff for a day or two.  I unfortunately jumped the gun and reset the forum to full featured mode on the old server, so the only way to tell the difference is to look for an announcement about the site being on a new server.  Although you might be able to get on the new server before I do, especially since I haven't had breakfast yet.

Up, up and away!

I'm getting the server upgraded.  The sudden increase in popularity warrants it.  Expect even more outages throughout the night.

The forum's back, for now at least

The forum is back, with a bunch of features turned off.  I'll keep you all posted on dealing with everything.

What's in a named?

I don't know how the fuck it happened, but the named service stopped.  So it was a nameserver problem after all.

The drug pages are back up.  The forum is still down, but that's intentional until I finish doing what I was trying to do in the first place.

Still have no clue

I've opened a ticket with tech support.  I still have no idea what's going on.  I've put everything back the way it was, but only some people are able to get an HTTP connection to or and I'm not one of them.  I can't even get a connection to the non-forum part via a proxy site.  Traceroute fails to the name, but works to the IP address.  That indicates a nameserver problem of some kind, but I didn't go near the nameserver.

But some people are able to access the site.  I can telnet and see active HTTP connections.  Not only that, the access and error logs are showing typical activity.  The traffic is way lower than normal, but the usual files being accessed.  It's not stuff from Google's cache, but live data.

Crazy Meds offline

Both the forum and the medication pages are off the air until I can figure out what the fuck is causing HTTP session to use unholy amounts of CPU time.

Update: the medication pages are available.  The forum should be up soon, although some features may be a bit constrained. 

Update: the forum is back up now. 

Update: I've taken the forum is offline for a bit.

Update: well, I thought it was going to be just for a bit, but I've run into that problem where I can't get an http connection.  I can see all sorts of http connections happening for other people, I just can't get one going.
