You may have noticed over the past few weeks that the site has occasionally been glitchy. “Node unavailable; Database Inaccessible” and other error messages have cropped up.
I am having my programmers make the site inactive for a few hours to run diagnostics. This means we are in Read Only mode — there will be new no posts or comments for the next 8 hours or so — and then we will come back online.
Some of this has to do with the increased population (traffic, users, comments and search queries).
Given the number of posts and comments, I wonder if we are butting up against a natural limit for WordPress.
Anyway, back in a few hours . . .
