Well it's been a grueling week. I'll type up some details later, but right now I have a splitting headache.

Let me know if you see anything funky.

This is a temporary server. I will be placing and order for another one later this week/weekend.

If you have specific suggestions, please share.

I'm looking in the range of this:

16GB RAM
10K RPM SATA RAID 1+0 (size doesn't matter - at least 100GB)
2x Dual Core Opteron

1U or 2U footprint.

Clicking on My Geek or going to profile under this category brings up this error for me

"Warning: mysql_fetch_object(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in /var/www/public_html/mcutils.inc on line 1497
select count(*) numtags from geeklist_tags where username = 'cloudstalkerian': Table 'gamegeek.geeklist_tags' doesn't exist"

The links to Games in the database still don't work. I'm not pushing just letting you know. I'm sure you've had a few long days already and you have my sympathy.

Correction some work and some don't. I couldn't get to Cleopatra or Federation & Empire, but was able to get to Power Grid.

Seems good now.

Aldie-

Wanted to let you know.....searched werewolf because all the fuss over at google group.

Search found it, but when I clicked to go to game information I received:

Warning: mysql_fetch_object(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in /var/www/public_html/mcutils.inc on line 1497
SELECT country,name FROM geolocation WHERE 3472823470 >= begin_num AND 3472823470 <= end_num: Table 'gamegeek.geolocation' doesn't exist

Excellent work, Aldie!

As of 1 p.m. PT on 8/11 I'm still not seeing Geeklists, and Games Played stops at March 2006 for me.

You da man, though! thumbsup

Thanks for bringing it back.

Just noticed that the Games Played calendar is missing the games I listed between some time in April and today.

It was a tough couple of days without the Geek, and I'm real glad that it's back online.

Thanks for the quick work Aldie! I never realized how central the Geek was to my day until it was gone.

I too am getting the MySQL errors, but I am just happy to have the E&T games back for now.

Thank you!

I just noticed the same thing. For me, it's from early March '06 and on.

Thanks, Aldie! Game search results in:

Warning: mysql_fetch_object(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in /var/www/public_html/mcutils.inc on line 1497
SELECT country,name FROM geolocation WHERE 3477212162 >= begin_num AND 3477212162 <= end_num: Table 'gamegeek.geolocation' doesn't exist

Also, games played seems to be correct only through Feb. 2006....

But get some rest since it's almost the end of America's "work" day in any event, and everyone else's weekend has started already!

are you seeing the value in onsite commercial hardware support with 4 hour turnaround time yet?

this is your business. don't build a system unless you want to dupe parts. for a singular server, that isn't nearly as cost-effective as buying a branded server with a warranty. to save some money you can add stuff like disks and ram aftermarket, and swap back to originals for the purpose of diagnosis if the techs really insist upon only working on "their" stuff (they often don't when it's obviously a motherboard, power supply, etc).

if this were a supported server with flaky hardware, a tech could have rolled out with a trunkload of every likely replacement part within a matter of hours. and did the work for you.

The data seems to be there because I when I look at my collection, it shows plays I just added (I remember what the total plays showed), but they games aren't listed at all through the games played
