Unexpected Slashdot Downtime

CmdrTaco posted more than 6 years ago | from the zomg-what-a-night dept.

Slashdot.org 219

Netcraft confirmed it ... Slashdot was dying for several hours (along with SourceForge, which shares a corporate overlord and router). Some planned downtime from our provider apparently didn't come back up quite as planned. Sorry for the inconvenience. On the upside, we're moving to a new network and hardware soon, so the site should be much faster and more stable rsn.

Sorry! There are no comments related to the filter you selected.

It Was a Bad Morning (5, Funny)

eldavojohn (898314) | more than 6 years ago | (#23251360)

Slashdot was dying for several hours
Like a heroin addict, I stumbled out of bed over to my desk and shook the mouse to wake up the monitor. Ah, the bathing goodness of #006666. I hit refresh only to find it taking an unusually long time. Was my internet connection down? No, Pidgin is still up ... wait a second, Slashdot is down! SLASHDOT IS DOWN!

I started to shake uncontrollably and found breathing difficult. My roommate heard a strange moan and poked his head in through my door "Are you ok, dude?" I grabbed the closest thing to me, my Limited Edition Ceramic Invader Zim figurine and flung it at him. It shattered into a million pieces.

I wrenched the monitor to face the corner of my room and set the drinking bird to hit F5 repeatedly. I grabbed my torn and tattered copy of this quarter's 2600 and curled up in the fetus position sucking my thumb and sobbing quietly. I picked up my cell phone to call work, I would not be coming in today ...

Poltras (680608) | more than 6 years ago | (#23252538)

And yet, here you are, reading my comment and answering to it. Don't read me wrong; I can get a few days (or even a week or two) without reading slashdot (done it in the past). But when I have nothing to do and an internet connection around, I pass sometimes here. Still sounds like an addiction (like the bar hangout if you will).

suso (153703) | more than 6 years ago | (#23251374)

At first, I was thinking there was a wider internet outage because Google was having problems this morning and so was MSN.. But I guess not.

If you look at this website [internetpulse.net] it shows that there is some issue between SBC and Cogent.

Re:I thought it was a wider net outage (1)

s0litaire (1205168) | more than 6 years ago | (#23252498)

how to ping your house: step 1 - get elastic band step 2 - loop over left thumb and hold using thump and forefinger of right hand. step 3 - pull to just below breaking point. step 4 - move left thump to point at solid (not living) object (i.e. wall) Step 5 - release the righthand thump and fore finger. You have now ping'ed your house You may now apply toll points :D

What else would you expect when your data centre is run by Scientologists...

We all wondered why at least four firehose articles critical of the cult sat there at "Red" for at least a week before finally vanishing.

(Backgrounder: Apparently, if you're a critic of the cult, your account gets nuked when the Scilons, or someone working on behalf of the Scilons, lob a DMCA it, even if all your content was original. This may or may not have anything to do with the Scilons paying YouTube for a "channel" of their own with which to gain identifying data (think Google Analytics and other data collected by YouTube) on potential critics.)

That reminds me, yesterday I was configuring my new ubuntu install for the net, and I just couln't connect: none of my queries (typed in the firefox address bar) worked, and pinging google also didn't work.

And then, after testing pretty much every other possible cause I could think of, I tried an other server. And, it was google that was down :)

I guess we always get surprised when that big a site goes dead, even for ten minutes.

If you eliminate the "Web 2.x" junk and embrace a spartan layout/format you won't need to upgrade your network.

I have my preferences set to 'low-bandwidth', no icons, etc.. but the formatting goes to shit when I hit "Reply". It re-renders the entire /. page.

And yes, I miss the BBS 'offline-mail-reader' C=64 styles that Renegade and C-Net allowed.

I shall share this post to one of our internal mailing lists in regard to "web 2.0": Generally speaking, it's used to describe web sites or applications that: 1. use HTML "properly", with styling info in CSS 2. have dynamic elements to the page 3. possibly, use a semi-structured approach to data - you'll hear buzzword bullshit like "tagging", "folksonomy" and other nonsense Dynamic XHTML basically. It's a nonsense term that wankers use to describe perfectly fucking obvious programming techniques.

Hey, CmdrTaco!

Great to hear the news that you're going to be upgrading the tech that supports this site. /. has been a daily part of my life for well-nigh 10 years. Having seen many changes over the years, I'm especially interested in what will be supporting the site when you finish with the upgrade... so, PLEASE update the FAQ - Tech [slashdot.org] page? ("Last Modified: 6/13/00")

Thanks in advance and please accept my gratitude for (the often thankless job of) keeping this site running so well.

Will the SlashDot story of SlashDot's downtime cause SlashDot to be SlashDot'ed? There by causing another story of how SlashDot was Slashdot'ed. Causing SlashDot to be SlashDot'ed again... My head hurts.......
