I had nothing to do for like 45 minutes. I got kinda scared.
*Gasp*....my oxygen was cut off for nearly an hour!!
I was too. Then I realized we were all scared, each in our own homes. Then I felt that sense of community - we were all in it together - and felt better.
...wait, what happened? I know the site was down and everything...but what triggered it?
That turkey sure was cold.
We need a backup forum, somewhere we can meet in case of emergency
I recommend logging into the Apple store and buying large amounts of equipment you don't need. This has the double benefit in giving you multiple pieces of hardware; you can then create whining threads about each of them and how if Apple continues to treat customers like this, it will surely go out of business, and God help me but Dell would never do this, and so on, and this will last you until the next forum downtime, at which time you can repeat the process.
The other major option which seems compelling is masturbation.
I found myself hitting refresh for almost 5 mins straight.
there is the irc chat room.
An error on the core something page on line 279 i think. If you bothered to look at the SQL error in the source code you had on the database page
I think it was a hardware failure (nic card/cable) - at least that's what my provider thinks. they're looking into it. we're patched up at the moment.
Sorry to hear, but glad we're up. Things like user queries (http://forums.macrumors.com/member.php?u=31008) worked until we were logged out, even when we couldn't see posts.
I didn't even notice the server outage. Since each of my posts is a 1000-word essay, and I spend hours composing each and every sentence, I was busy typing in a text box and editing words the whole time, and the forums were working just fine by the time I finally clicked Submit Reply.
You guys make me laugh! This place is like our home away from home, eh? Seriously, I would have to reconfigure my daily routine without MacRumors:Forums
and here i thought mad jew's post rate finally caught up with the forums....
Ok did anyone type in their password for the forum "temporarily offline"
Then why is this post only 50 words?
I did. I was desperate... willing to try anything
That's editing for you: it started out three pages long...
i was in the other room doing mkrishnan's other major option and when i came back i could not log onto mac forums
I was SCAAAAAAAARRRREEEEEED!
then i took a nap because i was tired...
and wheeeeeeeee we're back!
I thought about it for a second Then my brain woke up
I was like oh crap, did my DSL die again , but luckily everything else on the net worked..... glad MR is back, I was clicking refresh every three minutes
i did about 10 times in a row! i was freaking!
When it first went down, I actually felt a bit guilty.
