Rich is working the problem and has already found at least one major culprit in our databases. More later...

By the way, Rich tells me that the fixes will involve some downtime.

Remember you can always check the board status at

http://chiffandfipple.posterous.com/

Bookmark that site and visit it when the board goes down.

I'll try to keep it updated.

Yes, the main problem turned out to be a severely bloated sessions table which is not auto-pruning as it should. Rich has fixed the immediate problem, and we'll look into cleaning up other database issues. If the Chiffboard needs to be taken offline for any length of time, we'll try to announce that in advance.

Many thanks to Rich, and thanks to everyone for your patience.

Once you work for this company, you can't not work for this company.

And why would someone want to leave with this salary and these benefits? What? Leave show business?
