We Restarted the Mammoth’s Database Server to Feed You

Sorry about the site outage this evening. The problem was a glitch with the database server, apparently triggered by an error in the site code. Hopefully this will not recur, but in other news if you’re a WordPress maven who wants to do me and the site a big favor there’s a line in the code that needs fixin. Thanks, everyone, for your patience!

No WordPress skills, sorry.

But I’m glad things are back up and running!

Glad you’re back! Not a WordPress person, sorry; I wish I could help.

O/T, but did you see that the NZ shooter has been sentenced to life with, I believe, no possibility of parole?

So, what you’re saying is that you have a WordPress install which is not actively maintained? This is… not good, if only from a security standpoint.

Totally O/T, but J.K. Rowling has now returned a human rights award because the organization that gave it to her, Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights, criticized her transphobia.

@David

My offer stands! Let me know if you’d like me to take a look. Someone with wordpress experience can probably find the issue more easily, but learning a new framework to fix a bug isn’t uncommon for me.

Found this post on Twitter: https://twitter.com/LordSnow876/status/1299050003286110215?s=19

It’s really irritating because a) you can’t tell an incel from looks, b) incels do want to murder us that’s not a funny punchline, c) so many fucking assholes in the comments with their “legalize prostitution” takes.

New information has emerged on JK’s award return. It appears that previously the organization had stripped her of the award, and she returned it before the news broke because she thought it would look better that way. Big “you can’t fire me, I quit!” energy.

Because 2020 delights in finding new and inventive ways to suck: Chadwick Boseman of Black Panther fame is dead at 43 of colon cancer:

At this point, I’m just about ready to rip off 2020’s head and shit down its neck.

The only thing that could possibly redeem it, at this point, is a resounding repudiation of Trumpism and the Repugs in November.

And a fast-forward function we can use to skip to that, and then skip to Christmas, and then skip to 2021.

I have done some WordPress in the past, can probably be as helpful as kupo.

As moggie says, since you don’t have developers on staff, best to remove any custom plugins and just use stuff that’s up to date. Anything that faces the web gets constantly attacked by hackers.

O/T: Running out of ways to defend his crackpot theories, Ray Blanchard has turned to Deepak Chopra-esque distortions of quantum physics:

Re: the death of Chadwick Boseman:

according to some of the articles I read remembering his body of work, Boseman had evidently been dealing with his cancer since roughly the time he first debuted as T’Challa in Captain America: Winter Soldier in 2014. I wonder how many fans and movie viewers realized he was dealing with that behind the scenes all this time while creating characters Black people can identify with better? I suspect not many.
