There are definitely errors showing up in the logs. Trying to figure out how bad things are.

Changes in both Perl and MySQL are going to require some hacking.

Is anyone else having problems with their InBox?
I got my second failure today -- that's  two message notifications I've received that are gone by the time I get to my InBox.
Seems very odd.  I've tried responding to the senders but I don't know if those messages have  gone out or been swallowed by the system.

Hmmm. Yep, a test message of mine went straight into the ether.

I'll have to dig into the error logs about this. The fix, if possible, will not be immediate.

Just an FYI, but I sent a couple of PMs recently that never received a reply...I just thought everyone was ignoring me like they usually do.

The PMs do not appear in my sent items either.

Yes, I received two message notices in the last couple weeks, only to find no new messages in my inbox.

I too received a notification just now. Also, nothing new in my inbox and really I have no reason to expect anyone to message me. I'm not sure if it normal forum software behavior. I don't comment much, don't really send messages, and I've only received two myself and they were a long time ago.

There was a little popup window informing me, then a second window asking if I wanted to let it open in a new window, I clicked ok but got a message in FireFox about blocking the script trying to open a new window. I dismissed that as usual automatically without thinking. After that I saw the inbox link on the upper right said "1 new" so I clicked it annnnd nothing in the inbox.

Possibly someone exploiting to deliver spam/phishing ?

Same here - I got a pop-up warning telling me I had a PM but when I went to the inbox there was nothing new.

Received notice of a message, 'test 1', from Wes, but nothing in the inbox.  Sending seems to be working to some extent, at least it's hitting the notification system ;-\

I think that we may have passed a certain number of messages (32,767?) and that the column for holding the total number of messages overflowed. Checking it out.

A couple of error messages went away with re-defining the type of the column in question, but others remain.

Apparently one of the things the database interface relied upon was automatic conversion of the empty string into a default integer value of 0, and that is not happening with the newer version of MySQL. Fixing that looks to be non-trivial.

I think Reed got the PT server issues fixed.

Since the 25th, there have been bot traverses of this server that were hogging the system resources. On Halloween, I installed a cron job and script to automatically restart the HTTP daemon if the system load spiked. Since a little after 2 PM on Halloween, Jetpack has not had to inform me of the server being down. So hopefully that keeps things open for the humans to use the server.

Thank you again, sir.  And Reed.

Note: system scripts should be checked for typos and function *before* installation. Apparently, I was just lucky that things weren't continuing to kill the server at the time I put in the restart-on-high-load script. *Now* it is tested and worked for a threshold of 0, re-set the threshold higher so it isn't always resetting HTTP.

Perhaps it's a poltergeist.

Can we assume that it's the Ghost of ID and announce that we have positive "proof" that ID has died?

When I look at PT, the most recent post reply it shows is from Thursday afternoon. Is that a coincidence, or am I not the only one who can't post over there since then?
