As RiotACT struggles back into life after another near-death experience this arvo, questions are being asked all over Canberra – “does RA have more lives than your average garden variety cat?”

You guys must be having some techno-heart attacks over there!

[ED – Sys Admin (Kramer) : In a word… YES!
More precisely we are planning a few fixes this weekend, which will hopefully fix our woes – so there may be a few short outages on Sunday.]

Is this why johnboy jumped ship?

It’s this damn Linux platform we are running on with Apache, PHP & MySQL. If I had my way we would be running on Windows 2003 Server (or Longhorn beta) with IIS, .net & SQL Server 2005 – and we would be about $10,000 in debt 😉

Probably the more likely answer is that we are currently on a platform & code based which is very old, with more holes than a pair of fishnet stockings. Anway we should have everything sorted very very soon (touch wood).

Why does the database keep shitting itself? (Other than the fact that it’s MySQL…)

The RiotCAT?
