Cat SF back online--technical difficulties resolved

Hello everyone!

Just wanted to apologise for the fact that SF was down for a day or so. There was a system overload, and the hosting company had to temporarily suspend the site until we could get the issue resolved.

Thanks to Inspirit making some adjustments internally this morning, we are now back online!


Thank you for all your patience, and welcome back!!

I was wondering what was going on, afraid that I was the only one experiencing the problem! Glad that everything is okay now!

If I may ask, what was the source of the overload?
If it was a malevolent one, it needs to be reported.
Random overloads could mean that something in the back-end is clogging the bus.

Well, let's just hope that the overload was not due to an overlord!

I just heard back from the hosting company. They said the source was forum spam sources, and some were crawlers like bing, etc. It looks like the majority were spammer situations that overloaded the system. I am forwarding the info to Inspirit to see if we can work something into the system that will prevent spammer overload again. The hosting company told me a couple of things we could try.

Thanks again everyone for your patience!!

Big thanks to Inspirit!!

Hee hee---amy green---yes, good thing it was not an overlord! I think we would be powerless to stop that one!
