A crashed server ...

Discussion in 'Journalism topics only' started by pressboxramblings07, Nov 20, 2007.

  1. ... for over six hours. I got to start building a five-page section at 9:53 on an 11 p.m. deadline.

    Sent my last page at 11:30 p.m. It's the f-ugliest section ever, but crap. I need a bonus for this.

    Eh. Who needs quality?

    Seriously, good job on getting the section out. But don't expect a bonus in your next check. In fact, expect a note explaining what "deadline" means.

    was the rest of the paper delayed as well because of the server problem?

    I've yet to have one reader ever complain to me about an "ugly" section.
  5. Yeah, but really not too bad. I think all the pages were sent about an hour late.

    Thank God it was a Monday.

    When I see the words "crashed server" I immediately panic. :)
  7. I heard that. It's happened before, but it had never taken this long.

    The real scary thing is that they still don't know what caused it. But after they got it back up last night, our system ran faster than ever before.
