Re: Very busy today?

Just a bit more detail. We had a bug in the module in the intel network driver (Intel 710) that comes with Debian Stretch. We built a replacement using the newer bugfixed sources direct from intel which we've seen from other machines fixes the issue. The challenge is installing it, you have to drop ...

Re: Server Error.

I don't think that error is generated by Raspberry Pi, it looks like it comes from your ISP.

Re: "Sorry but you cannot use search at this time. The server has high load. Please try again later."

Good to hear positive news that the forums are working well. I'd be very surprised if Pi4 was released tomorrow, I was merely strongly encouraged to get the upgrade through before Christmas rather than having my head stapled to my keyboard to make sure it happened. That said, I took off on a six hou...

Re: "Sorry but you cannot use search at this time. The server has high load. Please try again later."

We've applied a lot of new hardware, and a bit more cleverness. We were stuck in a position where we could have either working user registration, or high performance. We've now applied a software fix that incurs a small performance penalty but enables user registration and quadrupled the hardware re...

Just dropped one of the performance tweaks back in. These are all working for me - are you still having issues?

Re: Raspbian Jessie: Unable to connect to mirrordirector.raspbian.org

It's not run by Mythic Beasts, but we have a login to the machine so I've increased the number of workers as it wasn't recycling connections quick enough.

Re: Help: Best alternative to default Raspbian Stretch Repositories and how to change it

So there's a mesh of 8 servers that front the archive. Can you ping each of the following, lb.raspberrypi.org. 245 IN A 46.235.227.11 lb.raspberrypi.org. 245 IN A 93.93.128.133 lb.raspberrypi.org. 245 IN A 93.93.130.39 lb.raspberrypi.org. 245 IN A 93.93.130.104 lb.raspberrypi.org. 245 IN A 93.93.128...

Re: STICKY: NEW FORUM SKIN - Comments here please.

forums.raspberrypi.org was a domain name used for internal monitoring of the back-end server that was never intended to be public. When we did the migration of the forums we moved to a new backend VM on a different IPv6 address. Since we're now complete we've switched off the old VMs so the servers ...

Re: STICKY: NEW FORUM SKIN - Comments here please.

We've never had an IPv4 address for forums.raspberrypi.org, that's always been a v6 only link direct to the backend webserver for monitoring which probably should have been more firewalled than it was. So whilst it's nice that some people were using v6 only accessible services, I'm not going to reen...

Re: Why not move to using Discourse for this forum?

So here's an incomplete list of questions that need to be answered before we could consider moving to Discourse (or any other forum software). (i) What features do we wish to add to the forum and does $new-software provide them? (ii) Can we support Raspberry Pi themes and customisations we already h...
