From News Discussion / Apologies for the outage
Posted 28 Mar 13 14:43
Just a quick note to apologise to anyone who's been experiencing problems with the site over the past day or so.

The server's having a memory allocation issue which is causing issues with slowing things up and, at times, resulting in some processing closing down entirely.

I've made some modifications and things seem to be working better than they were, but it's something I need to keep an eye on. Apologies if things go a bit slow again.

Once again, another unexpected outage.

I've investigated the problem and I hope I have alleviated what was causing it, although the wider problem still needs to be fixed I'm afraid.

Hello all, many apologies for the unexpected outage.

I've recovered the server from the error that had caused the issue and hope everything will be working as it should be.

Please let me know if you encounter any further issues.

Many thanks,

Would that be anything like the Mary Had a Little Lamb rap in Sister Act 2?

Super lame.

As far as I can see, this is a personal matter for you to take up with the individuals involved.

I can't stand the crowing either, but if you want to piss around and moan about it, do it in private.

The best thing to do would be to ignore it and move on and know you're the better person.

I'm locking this thread because it's quite simply boring and no-one's adding anything to the debate that's not already evident.

This is still a great place to write comedy and get your work out to a wide audience. To say that The Spoof is not a worthy platform for publishing spoof news isn't fair.

The fights are a joke and totally unfathomable. I really do despair at the vitriol that spills out on these forums. It's irrational, childish and selfish. For this reason, I am probably going to close down the forums because it's too upsetting.

Dear Spoof,

Where's my pants?

Socks, plenty. Pants, none. Shirts many, pants missing.

Ah sod it, I'll go commando.

Thanks all for getting in touch to tell me about this(!)

I removed the article as soon as I became aware it was plagiarised.

Please, tell me in a direct message is you come across a copied article so I can act immediately. I don't read the forum regularly and posting an important message for me here isn't an effective way of drawing my attention to important issues.
