When this happens, and F5/reload doesn't solve it, try doing Ctrl-Shift-N for new incognito window. This will disable your extensions, unless you specifically have allowed them in incognito mode. I am thinking maybe one of your extensions is the culprit here.

Mike

Ok will try but I usually have zilch extensions, will look into this though, thanks.

Just caught the other one as you were posting:

I seem to think Chrome'ies have done some sort of rendering rearchitecting lately, caught an enforced field trial on a machine last week, not sure if it's connected or not.

Carefully (as an expert) use this address in chrome:

chome://flags

Then you'll see some options for rendering and GPU stuff. You can try changing them.

That's a sh*tload of flags, even more than I write, I'll stick with hitting the 'reset all to default' button for now.

(I think they should have been anyway, but I'll still see if it goes away.)

Sorry for the 15-20 mins of downtime today. First downtime in 238 days.

It was my fault, I accidentally copied something to the wrong server and the production server ran out of disk space, crashing it.

I've made it so that News and Current Events updates (new posts) will no longer show up on the forum homepage next to the chatbox. This is because recently this subforum has seen a lot of activity which not everyone is interested in seeing.

Mike

Just found this. @Big Mike, is this the reason why posts and threads in News and Current Events also do not show up when I check all my posts/threads?

This morning for the past 2:30 hours the server has been under extreme load due to a DDoS attack. I've mitigated it for now and everything should be back to normal.

Maybe one of those guys who got banned. They sometimes vow revenge....

Glad it didn't work.

Bob.

No clue what a DDoS attack is but sounds nasty! Glad you got it sorted out... If you find the culprit and hes near me let me know- I'll pay him a little visit

Basically a group of IP addresses were exploiting the site in such a way it caused a very high load. No damage or anything, just sporadic disruption of service due to extreme load on the server.

I would love to auto mitigate in the future, but this was somewhat complicated to detect. Maybe on the new server and new framework.
