Possible bug with verifying wiki accounts
« on: September 13, 2020, 12:20:37 AM »
While attempting to verify my email address on the wiki, the wiki, Wittenberg, and the talossa.com main site all went down for ~5 minutes or so, throwing a 508 "resource limit is reached" error code.

Not sure if that was purely on my end, but I figured I'd pass it on. As far as I'm aware, there's nothing out of the ordinary happening with my local network, and my connection to the wider Internet was unaffected.

Never thought I'd utter the phrase "Oh **** I broke the country", anyway...

Breaking the national web space is a triple felony under our laws. The Zuavs will be there to arrest you soon. Do not resist or they will be forced to use the bedposts.

This particular error pops up now and again.  It's something on the webhost end that goes wrong, but nothing to worry about, although it can be inconvenient.  Cabinet has raised the question about maybe switching webhosts.

The only thing to do when it happens is try again later with whatever you were trying to do.

Bedposts? for what?

By national law, the ceremonial weapon is the bedpost. The method of use is not specified, although I imagine it would do 1D6+STR bludgeoning.
