Another early outage, it's not too soon to speculate on what this bodes.

My betting (spoiler alert - I'll probably jinx it) is on 'quick and easy' - no fancy extra work. The server guys from CERN are back from their holidays, and beginning to think about the Anonymous Platform problem: that one isn't going to be either quick or easy.

It's been down well over 3hrs so it is no longer an outage but is in the early stages of being an outrage.

At the 5 hour mark it is now time to declare a grand mal outrage. Is it the proper time to invoke extra measures?

Well, they found out about that problem in May already but they obviously didn't fix it back then. Instead they seems to have been tangles up in some "vboxwrapper" stuff that they seem to think is the problem. At least according to these threads on their board:

Anonymous Platform - Scheduler request failed: HTTP internal server error

500 Internal Server Error
Thanks, that's very interesting - and useful. Note in particular message 38913 in the first thread, written by Nils Høimyr. Seconds after I wrote the post you quoted, I had an email from Nils, asking me to try reproducing the problem on their dev site, from cold (he sent me the invitation code for the 'no new members' server). After some struggle, I did exactly that, from first principles. I'll probably be speaking to Laurence (posted in the dev thread you linked) in a teleconference on Thursday: if they still need educating, they'll be educated.

Very good Richard. I hope you get paid one way or another for all the debugging you do for SETI (and probably other projects too).
You seem to understand the Spaghetti code of BOINC, much better than those responsible for BOINC. What will happen to BOINC and SETI, when you leave one day?
Thanks for the kind words. Actually, I'm hopeless at the actual code (I never learned C++, and I can't disentangle it for toffee - nor do I want to).

But I did undergo a proper "computer science" training - I understand the way computers think (follow logic) in general, without concentrating on any single programming language. That's what I bring to the party.

The moon is shining brightly enough to light my way to the place of sacrifice - and will shortly do so.

Still with the flu, so no way i could do the sacrifice and go to the outrage pub this time. Someone else could do the sacrifice? All i can is hollow the moon too.

Eric confirmed this morning (in a limited-distribution email) that Beta was down because of "muarae2 SSD problems" - muarae2 being the new upload server. They want to have Beta available to diagnose the Anonymous Platform problem - David can't be bothered to work with LHC. So that all makes sense, but it doesn't explain why Main is still down. Unless they're all concentrating so hard that they haven't noticed how late it's getting?

No, they're not. David and Eric are both working on Nebula. And I'm sacrificing some Glenlivet.

Obviously Richard's sacrifice did the trick.

Main is struggling with slow to no web page display due to overload of the noise bombs rate return.

Time to prepare the lounge and restock the liquid refreshments and snacks or maybe something more substantial in preparation for tomorrow's outrage.

Based on last weeks massive outrage and what has transpired the past 6 days, we might want to prepare with ear plugs on hand if the howling goes full blown Mega Grand Mal group style.

Hopefully Juan is better and can join in the festivities tomorrow!

Looks like it's down.
First time in a while I'm going into an outage with caches basically empty.
Depressing ... and pathetic.
