Stopped in the middle of a response I was writing. I took it personally!

Yes, Fluther was down. Our load balancer (the process that handles all the web requests) got corrupted and needed to be restarted.

Sorry everyone. I fixed it as soon as I woke up.

A billion lurve points to Ben, and those who don’t give him lurve should probably be shunned. Shun. The. Nonbeliever!

I don’t know what a load balancer or even a process that balances web requests is, but I’m glad Ben reset it and got Fluther back online!

Three cheers (and lots of lurve) for Ben! Hip hip hooray! Hip hip hooray! Hip hip hooray!

For a whole half hour I was forced to actually get work done. Thank God that’s over…

Remember that conversation we all had yesterday about lurving Ben and Andrew? This is your chance.

jonsblond's avatar

So it was down, phew! I was beginning to think that I wasn’t lurved anymore. Thank you @ben! Post some more so we can all give you more lurve! :D

The solution is simple. Ben needs to start doing meth. I can pitch in 20 for an 1/8th.

I downloaded IE8 this morning & I lost this. Thought I’d done something wrong. Thanks, Ben. You get an A for the day. :-)
