Topic: Can this web site get any worse? (Read 986 times) previous topic - next topic


In some cases (e.g. security-critical items), it does make sense to work in secret, but in this case (and most), it's only harmful.
I can see that there may be a case for keeping the security solution secret but I certainly don't see any reason to keep secret the fact that they are dealing with a security issue.

Back in the day when Government was for the purpose of enabling Lord Muck to get richer at the expense of everyone else there was reason for secrecy. Now that Government (and hopefully business) is for the purpose of serving the public I can think of very few situations where secrecy is warranted. The programming and management of this Forum most certainly does not warrant it.

Two or three hours spent thinking and reading documentation solves most programming problems.


Is there a Sunday maintenance window? The site seems really slow and I've had it throw 502 and 504 a few times in the last hour. If it does actually render a page properly it's very slow to get there.

I seem to recall the same thing happening last Sunday too, hence the question.

Ironically, it threw 504 when I tried to post this  :(


Bunch more 502, 504. Enough that I gave up & worked on some code I wanted to get done. That's now working and it appears that the site is back to normal too.

Also noticed it. Wanted to put it on github with some timings but then it went back to acceptable.

Did not get 50x errors though.
