Jude could probably better address this, but we're in the process of moving servers at the moment which is why things have been glitching somewhat. Sorry for the inconvenience, we hope to have everything sorted as soon as possible.

By the way, do you have another username? The only two posts from this account appear to be speaking about merging accounts, but I'm not entirely sure with what you would like to merge.

I'm having issues logging into the front page. It keeps saying "invalid token". I can't update my webcomic if I can't login. I've tried resetting the password and it still says invalid token. My account user name is J.M. Hunter like what is says with my forum name.

Sorry abotu the delays Omnis, it's been a crazy week. Here's what you need to do:

Log in as Jeremy.

Go to your UCP (link up at the top).

In preferences, click on the link to unlink your facebook account.

Follow whatever instructions facebook gives you.

That should unassociate that account with facebook.

Next, log out.

Then log in by hitting the connect with facebook button.

It will give you an option to choose an existing outhouse account.

Do that, and choose your omnis ra account.


Once that's done and Facebook is working with your new account, let me know and I will manually change all the Jeremy posts to be from Omnis Ra instead, and then delete Jeremy.

Sound good? Let me know if you have any trouble (I probably made it sound more complicated than it is).

"Sorry but you cannot use search at this time. Please try again in a few minutes."

After the web hosts yelled at us, I set it to disable if the server load goes above 3, as the search can be expensive on the database. Meanwhile, I'm trying to optimize the code so the server load never goes above 3.

Server load represents, more or less, the number of processors being fully used. The server has 2 processors, so if we're using 3 processors worth of processing, then it means there is going to be a lot of waiting for all tasks to go through, resulting in massive slowdowns.

So anyway, the idea is to try to automate the disabling of some services, like search, when load is high so as not to create a traffic jam, and at the same time try to figure out how to reduce load so it rarely gets that high.

Today, I moved the session tables to memory. Every time a page loads on here, for every user and even every guest, it writes to the session table to store their activity for crap like "Who's Online." I think this should have a big impact as that was a lot of small writes to the DB.

Let me know how often you find search unavailable in the future.
