To make ketchup complete:
The OtherOtherThread from the]ggh
OTT's low orbit
on a place known as the book of face
Hmm, I'm getting forum mustard. I hope it's not too serious. And just wanted to say, I'm not lost in the basement - just too swamped with outside to post. I'll ketchup when I can. - gghAluisioASG
Yup, me too. Lashings of the yellow stuff...lmjb1964
Gah, mustard. Well, at least we know ggh isn't trapped in the basement. It's a bitch to get out once that happens.HES
It takes me a few seconds to remember there's mustard every time I compulsively check the thread.HES
Which is oftenyappobiscuits
It's a ch*rping ch*rping ch*rping ch*rping ch*rping ch*rping ch*rping ch*rping ch*rping ch*rping ch*rping ch*rping m*stard m*stard...BlitzGirl
Still mustard. Steambottle.mrob27
Hey, we've got mussssstard!!! Here's a 503ification:
I'm using the ЯOЯЯIM on the Moon to Blitz right nowAluisioASG
It's really quiet, both here and in the mirror.ergman
mustard, mustard, always mustard.lmjb1964
Ooh, I forgot about the mirror! Um, how do It I get there again?AluisioASG http://moonbase.chirpingmustard.com/ott/mviewAluisioASG
Party at the ЯOЯЯIM TTO!AluisioASG
"What? mirror.chirpingmustard is unsafe?" - about Facebug blocking a linkBlitzGirl
Oh, silly Facebug.AluisioASG
I'm adding some info on communication alternatives to the site. It got me thinking: if the forum server gets lost and we move to the Raftcastle, should we try to get the old posts in it too or leave that for the mirror and start things anew?mrob27
I think we should try to get the old posts (all 2100-or-so pages) because when people link to old posts a lot, like in my blitz reports. Also we might get new members (yes it can happen!) who will want to Blitz it all.mrob27
Here is another 503ification...AluisioASG
I'm not saying to get rid of them, just not keeping them in a live forum instance. Remember we also get 1000+ bogus forum accounts and much more attachments than my disk quota allows anyway.mrob27
The old posts do not need to be edit-able, they just need to be readable. I don't think you would want to create any accounts, each user would have to create their own account (and then prove that they're the same person by making a post on the xkcd fora). But if the xkcd fora are gone (which was the premise) how to prove I'm the real mrob27?mrob27
I think the old posts and the 600 Mbytes of attachments could be stored on another site, as long as it's easy for anyone to re-use old images and link to old messages. The website containing the old stuff would have "Quote" and "Post" links that jump to your site.AluisioASG
The s/website containing the old stuff/mirror/g seems to already do that (including rewriting links to posts to point at the mirror version). It'd be just a matter of updating the template links.
If we were to migrate the old posts to the new forum, though, then we'd have a problem with accounts.
Oh, and I'd require you to use your chirpingmustard.com addressAluisioASG
BTW, the mrobdex is really huge and there's quite some useful stuff at the bottom of http://mrob.com/time/
. Would you mind splitting it out?mrob27
Hmmm, yeah, it's probably time to look at breaking that up into pages. It loads very quickly on my 10-year-old machine, but it's a huge pain to scroll through.balthasar_s
So you ARE ggh. And I was sure you are not. All this time I was wondering WHO you are.ggh
Yeah, social media ]\ggh
oops, someone kicked enterggh
Anyways, yeah, social media kinda makes me uneasy, so I use a pseudonym on it.mrob27
Mustard! This is lasting a long Time...BlitzGirl
On the bright side (?) I'm now getting an SQL error when I try to get to the fora.ergman
Is this the mustard's final form?Valarya
Oooh. That's the worst mustard I've ever seen.BlitzGirl
I've gotten the SQL error before, after an extended Time period of mustard. I suspect it's an improvement.AluisioASG
I believe it's the worst one recorded in http://mrob.com/time/fora-uptime.txtBlitzGirl
balthasuper, is it possible to search the copy of the OTT on the mirror? The search box redirects to the mustard.balthasar_s
The mirror does not have a search feature. One of the reasons for this is the fact that the mirror is not built on a database.
"Ok, so i'll try to make a mirror."
"Oh, no! I know nothing about databases!"
"Whatever, I'll build a mirror without a database. Who needs databases, anyway?"AluisioASG
The filesystem is the database?balthasar_s
Yes. At he bottom of the page there is a spoiler with links to almost all the data. Except for the mustardpost data whish is unavailable because it contains passwords.
But i thought you already figured that out when youlmjb1964
Who is this General Error, and why does he want to prevent me from accessing the fora? mrob27
, how would this one rate on your mustard scale, do you think?balthasar_s
No, you got it wrong. General Error is the leader of tahe army that is fighting mustard, and what you are reading is his latest report.BlitzGirl
The opposing forces, of course, are led by Colonel Mustard.HES
So be it. Meet me in the Library with some lead pipinglmjb1964
I'll be in the secret passageway from the Conservatory to the Kitchen. BTW, the fora are back!lmjb1964
Apparently I had the very first post in the entire fora after the mustard.
