I added a comment on the Joe G thread last night. The summary says that I'm the latest commentor, but the comment has not appeared.

Have I broken the thread, or has the board finally had too much of Joe?

There's a reason for those "bump" replies that sometimes get posted when there's a new page. ;)

Yes, but 24 hours without Joe posting suggested that there was more to it....

Based on the quality of his "scientific" statements I just assumed he was sleeping off a rubbing alcohol hangover.  :D

There's something about an Aqua Velva man.

Looks like the Bathroom Wall thread has the same glitch that the JG thread has. Can they both get restarted with empty threads?

That or fix the "reply count", if that's what it uses to compute the number of pages to provide links to.

Perhaps the Bathroom Wall is trying to avoid getting to 666 pages.

666 pages would be a good point for me to start a new BW thread.

Unfortunately, the JoeG thread is already past 666 and is trundling on towards aleph-null.

I hope the computer keeping track of the largest known number can keep up!

Or until the highest prime number, whichever comes first?

Sorry mods, I just put what should have been a post in a report a post.   Stupid iPad.

I'm trying to set up a new account (which will make my cryptic comment in The Bathroom Wall a little clearer) and didn't get the confirmatory email.  (Not in my spam folder either.)  Did I miss something?

There was a compromised account in the email system. When I became aware there was a problem, I had to stop the email service until the boatload of bad pending emails could be cleared out. So it might have been simply that the service was down, or because the server was overwhelmed handling the load.

Data breaches are bad news.

I apologize for the outage. Things are a bit challenging all over. Stay safe, everyone.

I'll see if I can reach Reed, who is hosting PT currently.

A Big fiber optic pipe T-Mobile was using crashed yesterday and the back up didn’t work and Internet communications have been screwy all day.

From Joe Felsenstein:

Quote
In a small piece of news: The site Panda’s Thumb is currently not responding. The problem is a hardware failure on the server. I am told the matter is being looked into, although social distancing issues will slow down the response. Apparently everything is backed up, and can be quickly restored once the hardware is fixed. I suspect that this will take a few days to a week. Spread the word, in case anyone is tempted to concoct conspiracy theories. We will be back.

There was a message hosted at www2.pandasthumb.org from Professor Steve Steve saying matters were in hand though delayed by the Covid pandemic but that is also down at the moment.

Thanks to Alan for helping spread the word about the status of Panda's Thumb.  It is an ordinary hardware or software problem (but of course we can't disprove some Design Intervention as the cause).

Aside from work on fixing the server, I have been trying to see if we can serve PT from Github using Github Pages and Jekyll.  Things are well set up for that but I am having trouble with jekyll-archives.  If anyone is well-versed in that I'd love to hear from them.  We also need to put a page up that explains the outage -- the domain owner will hopefully try to do that.

People should be reassured that all posts and comments are not stored on the afflicted server, but elsewhere, so nothing has been lost.  And of course PT is in the meantime down for everybody so you haven't missed anything.

You'd need the experts from CSI:Baylor for that.

Sorry for the absence. I did put up a page explaining the situation, but Reed wanted everything redirected back, so I did that.

If you or Reed needs something changed in the DNS, let me know what you want.

Comments are not working, but the basic Panda's Thumb site is serving now.

Kudos to Joe and Reed, who have put in a lot of time this last week to get things set up.

I just entered some DNS records.
