Downtime. We've had a few database timeouts today. Apparently a few people who share our database server were hammering the hell out of it. The ISP has used their spank-ray and we should be OK from now on. Sorry 'bout that.
Well...erm...ok. I'll forgive you this one time.

MySQL error!

Lost connection to MySQL server during query(Errno=2013)

Your query:
SELECT DISTINCT ID, post_author, post_issue_date, post_mod_date, post_status, post_locale, post_content, post_title, post_urltitle, post_url, post_category, post_autobr, post_flags, post_wordcount, post_comments, post_renderers, post_karma FROM (evo_posts INNER JOIN evo_postcats ON ID = postcat_post_ID) INNER JOIN evo_categories ON postcat_cat_ID = cat_ID WHERE cat_blog_ID = 5 AND ( ( post_status = 'private' AND post_author = 423 ) OR post_status IN ('published','protected') ) AND post_issue_date

Oh hey, look: lunch!

I'll keep on pestering the ISP but if nothing happens i have a back up plan.

Sorry I wasn't on irc more but real life got in the way.

Well it seems the spank-ray is in the spank-ray repair shop so we'll just have to wait a while - I hope to hear more soon.
