Upgrade in progress January 29, 2004 6:18 PM   Subscribe

Just a heads up, I'm in the middle of a slightly messed up software upgrade in process - expect things to be broken for the next few hours

Big speed increase, though! Is it Cold Fusion or SQL Server that sped up? Anyway, thanks!

Yeah, that should be gone now. Let me know if you find new errors from here forward.

Since you asked:

Error processing CFX custom tag "CFX_JSpellCheck".
The CFX custom tag "CFX_JSpellCheck" was not found in the custom tag database...

(on clicking the Spell Check button)

Oh and I get this when trying to view ask.mefi

metafilter, metatalk, ask metafilter, a whole lotta nothing, sxswblog, blogroots, metafilter.net, and ticketstubs should all be working ok now, lemme know if you find errors.

I'll fix the spellcheck thing tonight

Dang. I was hoping it meant the new AskMe functionality was going to be slotted in. Still planning that, Matt?

spellcheck fixed.

With the CF upgrade, a lot of new stuff will be coming down the pike. I'm hoping to have ask mefi done and up by etech in a week and a half

The MeFi family's doing much better than orkut.com right now...
Maybe I shouldn't have attempted a mass invitation of 17,175...

Thanks, mathowie, we appreciate all your efforts to keep the place(s) spiffied up!

Cool. Looking forward to new toys!

Like stavros, I had visions of seeing a brand-new AskMe when the errors faded from my eyes, but appreciate the work in keeping things up to date anyway.

NAG NAG NAG. You people are like a bunch of old women.

As an old woman, I take umbrage at that, m_c_d. Oh, no wait, I just take an umbrella. [emilylitella] Never mind! [/emily]

Dreama: if you don't mind, I'll belong to the old women, if it's all right with you.

Crash: you have what we Portuguese call, in our own quaint language, issues. ;)

What have they done to my site, Ma?

Obrigado, Mateus!

P.S. Thanks for the gentle cattle prod, specialk420: my silly remark was indeed in very bad taste. Sorry about that, my friend. :(

Not sure if this error is related or not:

I just received an error while trying to view this askmefi thread: http://ask.metafilter.com/mefi/5006

The error:
Server Error
The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your request.

Could not connect to JRun Server.

Hit back, went in again and it worked fine. This is with Mozilla.

I've gotten SteveInMaine's error a bunch of times over the past 30 min or so. Not sure if it signifies anything.

I have been getting that same error sometimes (in AskMe only). Refreshing one or more times makes it go away. Firebird 0.6.1/XP if it matters.
