Continuing Bad Luck

In what seems to be a string of bad luck (more on that later), a number of databases behind this blog became corrupted while I was removing the comment spam from this past week. The cause of the corruption? The disk was full due to the massive amount of spam that SpamAssassin had accumulated while filtering during delivery (rather than just trashing it). How appropriate.After several hours of cleaning up the disk and working to recover the databases, it looks like we’re back in business. I even learned a little bit of Python along the way. Please let me know if you come across any oddities with the site.In the mean time, I guess we can look forward to putting a few system monitoring processes in place and might want to consider upgrading the server.
