Just got some bad gateway for 3 minutes.  NSF.com was unavailable to me.

Yeah, Mark is working on things, so that was likely him. Sorry about that.

No problems, not complaining-just reporting, NSF.com as a whole, does quite well IMO, esp. considering the amount of traffic she sees.
Good work everyone.

Regarding the 'bad gateway' errors. It seems that we have located the root cause of them and we are currently working on a fix, which should be ready later today.



@Hog: thanks for the kind words!

I'm still not 107% happy with the calendar function. Right now, as it is already the 2nd here in Europe, it won't show the SpaceX launch at all in the forum upcoming events box.

And yes, my sleep rhythm is is quite *cked up. :D

Calendar only has a date, not a time, so it probably thinks the launch already happened for you.

And, hmmm... it's still March 3, right?  Any idea why I just had a 10-minute period when Chrome told me that the forum website was rejected for loading?

Did we back off to a back-up?  I noticed when I pulled up the forum earlier this afternoon that the "My Messages" pull-down menu was suddenly called "Inbox," and now it's back to the former.  Also, after the site became available again, a couple of innocuous posts that I saw just before it went down were no longer there, and I wouldn't have thought they were violating any rules and thus had to be pulled...

Yep. We fell over for a bit then, all seems fine now.

Thanks. I'll pass that on to Mark.

I was just poking around some of the earliest postings, and evidently this site opened in mid-March 2005? So that means in the next week or two we're coming up on the tenth anniversary of NASASpaceFlight? Congratulations, Chris, on creating and maintaining the best space news site on the Internet! Happy Anniversary!

It's hard to pin down a birth date for "Bergin's new baby".
Jeff Bezos has billions to spend on rockets and can go at whatever pace he likes! Wow! What pace is he going at? Well... have you heard of Zeno's paradox?

I think first ever post, which is here http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=1.msg1#msg1, is as good a place as any to mark the birth of NSF  :)

This would indeed suggests 10 years will be coming up on 18th March 2015!

Even if this isn't what Chris considers to be the anniversary point for the website, a massive congratulations is surely in order for "10 years since the first post"!!

Well done to everyone associated with this place, it's my second most visited website - even if I don't post that often!

Per the first post by Chris:

"Feel free to register ahead of the site launch next week (Monday 21st onwards)."

Or

The Date Chris registered:

16 March 2005

 
Up to the boss man :)

Edit:
Seems like today is my "birthday" registering on this site....9 years ago, wow time flies !

Cheers guys. Yeah, I'm going to work out when we gave birth to the site, but the anniversary is in a few weeks. I'll then write a thread for it. Merged this all into the feedback thread, as I wouldn't want to use that original thread as the anniversary - with a question mark in the title ;)

February 27, 2005 was when we started on a server, but we didn't have a functioning site until March, 2005. Needs to be when the site was interactive. I'm thinking March 16-17 ish.

March 16, 2005 was the 79th anniversary of Robert Goddard and the world's first flight of a liquid-fueled rocket. (Not a bad anniversary to have...)

I've decided the anniversary is Wednesday, when we opened to new members joining the forum. I signed up today, 10 years ago, but I remember I was playing with themes and stuff (and not knowing what the heck I was doing) for a day or so. First member wandered in on the 18th.

Heh! We only gained five members in the first week of operations - although I think it was pretty much one section and a couple of threads - and the news site wasn't really a news site at that time, more a template and some Shuttle baselines.

Going to look back tonight and see if I can find where we started out first growth spurt.

There seems to be a problem with the forum.

For L2, all members show up as 'protected', even when I'm signed in
Remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our rights & freedoms, and for those injured, visible or otherwise, in that fight.

Don't worry, you were just unlucky to see Mark working some software ideas. All back to normal very shortly.

I already sent a PM to Mark, but yeah -- getting a lot of error pages generated by the forum software itself.  Sometimes when I get to the forum index, the L2 forums are completely absent, sometimes I can see the indeces of threads within a forum but usually just get the error page.

I guess we just need to wait for Mark to finish his tinkering...
