is anyone else getting really annoyed at the server alwasy going down. is it just me, or is it happening more often now? we had a huge discussion about this over at MIFF (www.littlewyng.com/monkey/forum) (no really, people go there and discuss things, it's not a ghost town). especially at the fact that mixinmojo and is linking worldofmi, milegend, thescummbar and MIAC which also went down with them. shouldn't they know that they can't hold the entire monkey island community on one server? (also, if anyone reads the post on miff, they'll know my full opinion on the matter, i'm not saying it's fully their fault, but it is mostly)

please comment.

The announcement said it ran out of hard drive space which confused me as i did not know a physical hard drive had anything to do....

umm, k-jo, you didn't actually think it just floated out ni cyberspace did you.

plus, this is a huge database with posts dating back to a couple of years ago, so they need to back that up somewhere, i.e, the hard disk, which is why they were down, they had to back up the database elsewhere.

still, it is mostly the servers fault, it wasn't designed for a database this big, it collapse from underneath it which is why it went down adn took everything with it.

we really need to inprove this.

Well, if it was that easy, we would improve.

Yes I assumed that much. I just dont see why the server has to crash if the back-up just run full. then if the server DID infact crash the back-up wouldnt supply all the posts and stuff but.....

i understand that completely, it can't be easy, but can you honestly tell me that the mojo and lf staff have looked at every possibility and avenue to find the best possible solution to this problem. i'm sure that if you had, we wouldn't get this many problems would we?

Probably not, but the LucasForums team does what they can with what they are given.

look on the bright side, they work fine now. ;)

yeah, and it was working fine after the last time it went down.

how long until this happens again, this is so frequent, i'm not sure if i can believe the LF staff anymore when they say that.
