Yep.  What Ben said.  We're going to try some Wordpress upgrades and see if that stems the tide; in the just slightly longer run, I'm flexing my Rails muscles working on building something better.

Sorry things have been sucking.  It's going to improve.

Would your new Rails app be able to bring in all the existing forum content? I've always had that problem with switching languages in installing new apps -- old content never QUITE migrates over.

I figured something was up the first time it happned (for me) a few weeks back. Also figured it'd affect things. Thanks for the update.

Okay, I got a really weird message last night. I know Swamp got it, too. I have no idea what happened but it said that the host name didn't exist. It also thought the host was "Heroku". Anyone else see this or know what happened?

What time is "last night"?  I was on sporadically from about nine PM EST to after midnight (also EST).  I didn't encounter anything unusual during any of my visits.

i got the error too.  heroku is a type of server management software so they may have been rebooting or making low level changes.  not sure though, never used it myself.

Hey, there was a slight snafu with some DNS changes last night (which is why some were affected and some weren't), shouldn't be an ongoing problem.

I Twitter. I also occasionally blog on the Escape Pod blog, which if you're here you shouldn't have much trouble finding.
