    Default Outage Tuesday Oct 1st

    We had an outage today (Tues Oct 1st). I was getting database errors for about four hours, from around 12pm to 4pm (JST).

    If we're hoping to attract people now that Official has killed their applying section, this does not help.
    ...because Japan.

    Yeah, that sucked. No idea what happened; apparently BB couldn't even get on an' had to contact the hosting company. Hopefully the issue has been more or less completely resolved.

    I'd say without any uninformed dribble or outright incompetence it was probably the best 4 hours the site has seen in quite some time

    Hi,

    As word said, I couldn't even get connect via SSH to see what the problem was. I got over 2000 emails from the server saying basically 'oh dear, we've got a problem' in regards too many people accessing the database.

    Hosting company says we ran out of memory (RAM). This happened again this morning.

    I said to them that the site is at the lowest usage since we opened the site years ago and running out of memory makes no sense. We could be under a DDoS attack, but I doubt it - we're not exactly on anybody's radars.

    I've said to the hosting company many times that I suspect its a configuration issue with the server. Unfortunately if it doesn't get resolved I'm going to have to look elsewhere to host the site.

    Unsure - I'm not really up to date on these things. Maybe word will know more. However, a year or so ago the JET programme was in decline and as far as I know it still is. I hope it isn't a sign that the program is coming to an end...

    No, this is a first. The applying section has been there for years, but they've removed it permanently now. You won't be able to access any information from there, unfortunately.

    I wouldn't say the JET Program is in decline as much as I'd say need for forums about the JET Program are in decline. Most new JETs stick to FB.

    If that isn't the saddest thing to hear I don't know what is. Facebok is the ultimate echo chamber of idiocy, where everyone says the same thing, and noone knows what they are talking about at all.

    I mean ini is right, none of us know jack shit about this thing.... but atleast with enough voices who have done it you can sort of sound out some parts of the process... now a bunch of noobs are going to talk about it on facebook with absolutely no idea about the process at all, and I sure as shit ain't gonna go track down every new facebook group to offer help.

    If I were an applying JET, I'd rather have the advice of itil than from FB, where others are just as lost in the application process.

    Randy Paul can write "I really wanna join JET and watch the anime babes please tell me if that's okay for my sop" on facebook and get a bunch of "awwww, yeah man, I totally agree don't forget to write about culture too" on FB; or, Bettercallpaul can write on itil and get a reality check by Ini.

    I'm wondering if one of the reasons why Official shut down their aspiring was because Miamicoordinator left. He was a big part in moderating the applying JETs and providing advice, a lot of it probably on his own time.

    I was wondering about Miami, too. He (I thought she was a she...?) was always really helpful. Shame the forums had to lose him/her.

    I think it was confirmed once Miami was a dude. Not sure now.

    If you want to see a hilarious ball of idiocy, you should see Interac's fb group. Scary thing is that it's only for those who were accepted.
