Plz do not bring down wiki unitl 6 am

Postby rwickes » Sat Feb 24, 2007 2:40 pm

Every night now with the new site, the wiki becomes unavailable at 9:30pm EST or so, which I guess is 2:30 am your time (GMT), which is only 6:30pm PST (California). Last nite it stayed down past 11:30pm which is when I went to bed. It's really annoying for many reasons.
1) I cannot reference the wiki when helping people in BA
2) I cannot update the wiki
3) We're getting lots of questions on BA from people that cannot get to the wiki, which is really a waste of everyone's time
4) Makes the wiki unuseable to california casual (evening) users.
5) makes us look really stupid to have it down all evening (california users)

So please, whatever batch process is going on (backups?) that would take the site offline, delay until 6am your time. That gives it the 2 hours it needs until you start work. :evil:
I am the wiki vandal. Be careful what you say, I just may write it down.

rwickes, I don't think it is intentional :)

Their new servers defaults had some setting set too small - it has been changed so hopefully that will stop.
