Apparently the Schlock Mercenary webserver had some issues last night. I missed all the excitement because I was in bed early. It’s probably a good thing — I’ve got work to do today, and needed the 11 hours of rest I got.
The server guys, bless their 24×7 hearts, are looking into the problem, which only manifests itself under extremely heavy loads. Yes, it’s related to the dynamic page content, but it shouldn’t be difficult to track down and kill. For the next couple of days, however, the blog under the comic is going to be absent.
