WARNING: TR site weirdness planned for Wed. June 28

By Jay Garmon Contributor ·
Just a heads up to all the hardcore TechRepublic fanatics out there. We're going to briefly shut down our global user authentication system for maintenance on Wednesday, June 28, 2006 from 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm Pacific Time.

This shutdown may or may not affect any TR feature that requires a member to log in (posting, editing, visiting restricted forums, viewing customized feeds such as Posts From My Contacts, updating profiles, saving items, subscribing to alerts, or modifying newsletter subscriptions). It may also cause unanticipated weirdness, so expect the unexpected.

If stuff is still screwy on Thursday morning, send up a flare.

We haven't determined the cause of that outage yet

We had difficulty stabilizing the app, but we haven't been able to determine exactly what caused the problem. We are close to knowing, but it's going to take some more digging and inquiring.

Still happening but not as bad. Thread disappeared but I am not sorry to see that one go anyway.

Oh well. I have to do real work pretty soon anyway.

Have a great day everyone!

oh, boy........

by gadgetgirl In reply to WARNING: TR site weirdnes ...

being trying intermittently to get on the site for the past three hours, to get regular page not founds.

Eventually, half an hour ago, it started letting me part way in - only part way mind you - but the RHS of the screen was blank........

Just hope this gets somewhere near the right bloomin' thread!

Jay: started trying to get on 13:10 UK time, currently 16:10 mytime.

Is it fixed now?

by Jay Garmon Contributor In reply to oh, boy........

Some kind of "server level issue" totally flattened us this morning. Should be fixed now. Let me know if our usual level of diservice returns.

Seems to be better now. Haven't tried my Workspace yet- it crashed me good and proper this morning.

Thanks for the update!
