Download area gone for now

I'm sorry to say that but the "My Downloads" area just erased itself - all the files that have been uploaded here are gone :-(

We try to figure out what happened and get the Downloads area up again ASAP. Until then, if you're looking for Geeklog add-ons, please try squatty.com, langfamily.ca, pigstye.net, gxblock.com, geeksta.com, or, if you can read German, geeklog.info. The actual Geeklog tarballs are still available under the Downloads link.

Sorry for any inconveniences.

bye, Dirk

Update: Okay, the My Downloads area is up again, but only with a limited number of files. I don't think we really lost anything (since all the files should be available from one of the above-mentioned places), it's just an inconvenience. May I ask the plugin authors to upload their works again? Thanks.

Geeklog.net Hey Folks,

My site is getting REALLY slow, with page creation times averaging 2-3 seconds. Yes, I consider that slow since sites like Pigstye average 1/3 second. And my users are already beginning to complain because it can get up to 5 or 6 seconds.

I\'m running an all-SCSI server with a P2-350. On the weekend I upgraded to 2 CPUs hoping to fix the problem, but that did nothing so it appears CPU was not the problem. My server is literally swimming in RAM with 512MB, and peak usage rarely touches half of that so it NEVER swaps. With this in mind I visted MySQL and read up on tuning their stuff, and did some very generous tuning according to this page http://www.mysql.com/doc/en/Server_parameters.html.

And by \"very generous\" I mean I gave MySQL a tonne of RAM (and am still swimming in it!).

Also on the weekend I did some major optimising of my FreeBSD kernel.

So it ain\'t CPU. It ain\'t RAM. What\'s left?

That error message ...

... you may see at the top of this page:

Warning: fopen("/home/groups/g/ge/geeklog/logs/error.log", "a") - Read-only file system in /home/groups/g/ge/geeklog/htdocs/lib-common.php on line 1322

is not a Geeklog misconfiguration but caused by SourceForge.net. As you may have noticed, all of sf.net was down for maintenance on Sunday and it seems some things still don't quite work yet.

Please be patient and there's no need to report this to the Geeklog team ...

bye, Dirk
