Even when the keyword search was futzed, that part worked fine!

I WANT TO FIND MY OWN POSTS!!!

:cry:

I'm my biggest fan.

Just because I pissed off some Arab hackers doesn't mean everyone should have to suffer.

Let's just make Funko suffer.

Search isn't disabled due to hackers. It's disabled due to the keyword builder process dies. Nav's posted about that a few times now. We just spam too much for this software to handle.

The Mad Monk

Right, so just disable the keyword part. That's what was done before Nav's rebuild attempt went belly-up.

But, the number of posts have increased. And that may have pushed the "by user" index build time too far out. Nav has mentioned something like that, but I don't recall the details.

You can just shut the hell up Mr Knowitall.

Just close the Word Association thread.

Funkodrom
29-07-2004, 14:07:36
Yeah. And delete the motherfucker.

zmama
29-07-2004, 14:09:13
Fine, I'll find a new hobby.
:gotit:
Hmmm maybe send all of you a word by pm every day!

Funkodrom
29-07-2004, 14:17:22
We could just have a lot of short Word Association threads. :p

Venom
29-07-2004, 14:21:39
Don't delete the sinking thread. I'll be forced to kill over that.

Funkodrom
29-07-2004, 14:22:53
Delete that one too.

Venom

Die bastard!

Darkstar

If I'm Mr. KnowItAll... does that mean I have to marry Mrs. KnowItAll then? Or is that just my sister, so I can ignore her?

zmama
29-07-2004, 19:45:45
Not if you move here :)

Venom
29-07-2004, 20:38:07
In that case she can be both.

Darkstar
29-07-2004, 21:08:43

Yup,
In West Virginia it's all relative

Hey, nobody is mocking The Mad Monk here, damn slackers.

Darkstar
30-07-2004, 15:42:31
That's because we want Mad Monk spending all his time looking at his own posts (that way, he won't be posting)!

Chris

Mockery is better.

Darkstar
02-08-2004, 05:01:32
Only if we can get him mocking himself. Otherwise, it takes ~some~ effort, and most of us are lazy bastards.

Darkstar

:tizzy: You know, I wonder what kind of software this uses? I mean, it cannot index a mere "370,586" data rows? What, was it written by primary school students as a lark?

You mean Microsoft?

Mad Monk wants to know his own post count. :p

The search index would contain well over 2 million rows. That in itself is not the problem. It seems the number of accesses required to keep updating it can sometimes cause the SQL server to reject the script/host.

So culling the number of threads isn't necessarily the answer.

At the moment I'm very busy and can't guarantee that I'd be able to fix the site promptly if search was on and it caused it to go down again.

2 million rows! How many columns?

Funkodrom
06-08-2004, 15:33:09
1

Nav

2. :)

keyword id, keyword.

Bring back the search. I wanna know who's been talking about me.

Tizzy

Just assume either everyone has or no-one has and go on your merry way

TV4Fun
17-08-2004, 08:50:03
That's not good enough. I want to know what they're saying. I mean besides "twat twat twat twat twat"

Tizzy
17-08-2004, 16:32:08
"Gay twat gay twat gay twat"?

Darkstar

Only if he is lucky!
