    The site keeps being rendered useless by memcached dying, with the static frontpage making the boards inaccessible.

    depending on how this happened, other services may have also been adversely affected (irc daemon etc..)
    (this is presuming that memcached crashed, if a server reboot is to blame then that too can be easily fixed)

    The borads are not inaccessible

    Just find a link to a thread in your browsing history [​IMG]

    But as you said, it seems only the portal is being effected

    The boards are mostly inaccessible, I wasn't going to post here, but I can't click on any link on the boards from this page without getting this error:

    Code:
    IPB WARNING [2] memcache_connect() [function.memcache-connect]: Can't connect to 127.0.0.1:11211, Connection refused (111) (Line: 89 of /ips_kernel/class_cache_memcache.php)

    There appears to be an error with the database.

    GBAtemp also looks different (well this thread). Like the font.
    Or it just might be me.

    Anyway. inb4ipserror.

    I can't seem to access any forums, but I can read most topics (provided I have the links)...
    Probably due to the "ibf_topic_markers" function (eg the black dots), like 0ddity said.

    And IRC gives me a "Connection Refused" error :|

    Yeah, I got that too with another topic.
    The smiley box also seems wider in the full editor.

    I'm still getting this error, only way around it I've found is to go straight to the forums but even then I'm STILL getting the error in tiny letters at the top of the page (even though the page loads and is browsable).

    and yes the font looks completely different?
    Are they doing a site overhaul or something?

    Yeah, I'm also getting a IPS Driver Error often. Better then the site being totally down like before.

    Yea I'm stuck on this thread (ended up googling here) can't select forums or home or anything really, anyway, it's been like this for a good 10 hours+ unless there was a window of time where it was fixed when I was sleeping. [​IMG]

    I get the same memcache and ips driver like everyone else and the font has changed.

    @Inunah Use ds-scene.net for latest NDS releases

    fairly sure this downtime was caused by memcached failing
