    The hamsters were getting a little out of hand so the system admins had to slap them around a little to get them back to work. I think everything is fine now.

    I think you need more hamsters or try some gerbils instead.

    Wasn't guessing. It was cache overload.

    It's getting old. I thought the idea was for TGN to improve things. Going backwards it seems. Having a race with the UO Dev team to see who can screw the most the fastest?

    Actually, it's a matter of dealing with the 3rd party hosting site.

    From what I understand, we're taxing the capabilities of the dinosaur of a machine we're currently on (which is why the sudden influx of hundreds of users at once when multiple the shards went down crashed Stratics every time), and we're in the process of getting switched over to a more modern one. However, there's issues with that at the moment, and the actual switch is on hold until the new machine's gerbils get their demons exorcised.
     
  12. Replace hamsters with squirrels - they never sleep...LOL

    Employing Squirrels is a benefit, But does come with it's disadvantages, All squirrels are thieves you know.

    Since when was Stratics hosted on a bad server? In fact Stratics used to not long ago to be hosted on a pretty powerful server. (but I guess they got sold by the previous owner) So regardless it can't be a dinosaur computer, as it was moved there fairly recently (within 2 years time or so likely)

    Speaking as a user, you guys could have switched hosts and saved money ages ago and it wouldn't have taken overly long. Though of course, the staff themselves kinda messed that up many months ago.

    But at the moment, your current issues squarely lies on Stratics/TGN shoulders and the constant deflections are getting tiresome.

    Which is an issue that takes very little time.

    The fact that they allow the errors to be displayed to the users certainly is troublesome. This is webserver-101 stuff guys. Dont show users those errors. Trap them and display a generic warning. Amazing..
