Darn you, SMF

    Every day between around 10:30 and 11 a.m., if I try to get on SJ or if I'm already here and navigating around, I'll get the following error screen and be unable to continue on the site:

    "Connection Problems
    Sorry, SMF was unable to connect to the database. This may be caused by the server being busy. Please try again later."

    Anyone know what causes this or why? I don't think the site is too busy, at least not at that time of day I wouldn't imagine so.
  2. Server updates and backups, I'm guessing.

    Those darn people with a lot of posts whom you've never heard of gunking up the system.

    It's all coming into focus now. They all get on in the morning and pad their post totals, clogging the system.

    Surly mother f*****, I suppose.

    Except for Moddy, who uses it as a chance to rub some water on his face, restock the small fridge and empty the honey bucket before heading back in front of his new HDTV for another day.

    Don't you normally fill the honey bucket? Oh, different meaning of honey bucket. Never mind.

    I had Mason jar, but would have been difficult to use both ways....
