We've had a few periods of downtime over the last few days - anything up, miskie?

It looks like a bad update happened. I just went through and resolved it, hopefully.

Were you getting "504 Gateway Timeout" from nginx ?

Not sure - I've mostly been on Tapatalk so it was a more generic connection error.

I mostly saw nginx 504s, but every three or four attempts would be a message saying SMF couldn't connect to the MySQL server.

Should be resolved completely now.

Automatic update had left email services totally screwn, and when a user on any hosted site would attempt to access webmail based services, the server load would spike and piss off nginx along with other things.

Oh -

Forgot to mention. - The server was patched up against the 'Heartbleed' exploit. The Sock's recent misbehavior was simply coincidental.

Updated the registration challenge questions, since our newest members seem to all be of the spammer variety.

Alright - but only if I can somehow work in "Bambi Goes Crazy Ape Bonkers with his Drill and Sex" as an answer.. :D

Best place I could find to post this.
Could we make a gentleman's agreement that when we start a new topic about a game that we put in parenthesis the format of the game, ala Garwoofoo? I've never done this but it would help I think.

I think you're crediting me there with something I rarely actually do, but it sounds like a sensible suggestion to me.

A sensible approach. I approve.
