Well done Martin


Thought some thing was wrong when I couldn’t even get the Mayhem homepage up! Always worrying when things like this happens- as Bob says I was getting flu like symptoms from the withdrawal! {-)

Has Mayhem been down today?


Excuse 6.3.1
I run a full Mayhem server backup last night .... 16+ Giggle bytes... yes 16.3Gb..... count them!
Anyway it creates a 16Gb.Gz (compressed) file on the server which you then download via SFTP, but the generated file doubles the disk space in use..... obviously!   This overshot my server space limit - by about 40%,  causing the server to lock up... Mayhem stops responding

"Clean up on isle one please!"

All sorted now.   :-))



.....  Sorry for the delay, had to work today  .... sigh!  {:-{

Martin now GO TO BED after consuming a few beers YOU DESERVE IT

I agree with that, and find someone to feed you peeled grapes  :} Thanks for everything you do Martin.


I assume when things are not as they should that you are doing something important to the forum, but like to mention it just in case it is a SPAMhawk doing evil things to your years of effort as well as ours.

Now Martin......I am certainly not decrying you a plate of peeled grapes of a large Chevis Regal & ice  {-) .....however I don't quite understand why the backup is so arduous?




On this, my small Ultabook [up stairs], I do a Norton backup to a 2TB external drive [via USB2] once per week ......backup contains all data except Software and is ~~ 6.7MB .....[or only about 60% the size of your file]Norton only takes 8 minutes to overwrite this in backup format, or ~~12 minutes if I create a new file...& then 8 minutes again to overwrite it etc


If it was just the server box size imitation that caused the glitch? ...can you perform a local backup on your machine prior to a duplicate files being sent off to the server?....or are we actually linked to your machine live 24/7?

Hey sir Derek!

You don't download 'Mayhem', a whole website, direct from a Host server.
It takes hours to download such massive amount of LIVE data, so while you would be doing it, the Forum would be still be running & changing,
i.e. updating with new posts, new photos uploaded, SQL Db constantly updating, cache changes ....
So by the time I've finished downloading the backup, the data will have changed significantly, therefore the hosting software creates a 'snapshot' -
which is now 16Gb! .... you try downloading 16Gb and see how long that takes you, even with a fast connection!  :-))
"Anyway, it creates a 16Gb.Gz (compressed) file on the server which you then download ........."

About 1.5hrs but with downloads I often find the slowest element is the rate at which "they" are shoving the data into the pipe at the other end.

Well Colin...I fully admit to purchasing an audiophile quality mastered tape record album containing the track of the single Waterloo
It was an amazing coup by the Swedes to capture the World..as they did :-)) ...


Interestingly, according to the latest UK - EU Archive releases, one Colin Bishop was Member number 20173 of the ABBA Fan Club UK in 1983  O0

Just a quick question and not related to the above - it was related to another issue regarding sizing.


It happen recently, i don't know if it still happens, you write a length of text, then realise the you want to put the back half as a separate sentence, so you put a couple of returns in to get the back portion onto a separate line, then you return it to where it was because you moved it from the wrong spot and the text reduces to a smaller size.
Just tried it again in this post and it didn't do what happened earlier - so it must be my set up. sorry to have troubled you.

As sombody suggested earlier, if you select the red A Toggle View on the second line (above the emoticons) before typing any text it often seems to be better.

I seem to recall Martin used the naughty words filter to change the size 2 note to size 14 to solve the small text issue.

I understand and saw that mentioned, the text went to less than 8 pt, had to increase it to 10 pt to be close to the correct size - again it may be my set up.
