    Is anyone else having trouble with Forum Spy?

    It stopped working for me about 20 min ago ...

    All I get now is server timeout.

    Trouble acknowledged. I think the attachment server is also having trouble.

    My guess is that the ferrets that guard the servers got too playful... again... and one of them tripped over the power cord... again.

    The ferret engineers have been notified.

    If it involves ferrets...
    then I would think you need to contact redwarrior, since she is the resident ferret guru ;)

    Note to self: I am waaaay too dependent on that Spy

    Ferrets? That shows how cheap MacRumors people are...

    You really should get monkeys!

    Ferrets are more expensive than monkeys. After all, monkeys will work for peanuts...

    We replaced the ferrets with monkeys and that fixed the problem. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Now you're going to have to spend time cleaning the flung feces out of the server racks ...

    They should have known the monkey's would revolt. They're too smart for their own good.

    MacRumors uses lemurs to guard the server room at night because they are quiet and can see in the dark.

    We tried nightowls but they asked too many questions. "Who?"

    But we might still have to deal with them tripping over the power cords, like the ferrets did, correct?

    It's worse, actually. Lemurs have very large tails and sometimes use them to hang from the cooling equipment.

    By the way, I've been joking in a thread that began with a serious question, so I'd like to make it clear that we do our best to keep all of our servers available, with sufficient bandwidth, for all of our members and site visitors. We don't always succeed, and for that we apologize. We know that people are here 24 hours a day, and are disappointed when the site or any of its features are unavailable.

    If the Forum Spy, the main page, the forums, attachments, or other features stop working for a moment, you probably don't need to report it, but if it lasts for a while, please let us know in case you catch it before we do.
