"Connection failure members" bug November 2, 2000 5:01 AM   Subscribe

Hullo Matt, we have a minor bug:

When I load MeFi, instead of being told how many members there are, I instead get: "Connection failure members".

Is this an M2K bug? :-)

It's probably related, and you're probably aware of it Matt, but for the past day or so I've also been getting Server Overload messages reasonably frequentely. Maybe one out of every three times I hit the page.

it's probably related to the problem i've been running into a lot this morning, the page keeps giving me "connection timed out" errors.

since i'm a coldfusion god i looked at the error's message, i tried http://metatalk.metafilter.com/index.cfm?RequestTimeout=1000 and eventually it sent the front page =)

the connection failure is the daily count of users, and when the database server is down, it give that as an error, which is getting included in the page. I have to fix the db server.
