Apparently, users are signed out after some period of website inactivity.


I had some frightening situations within the past two weeks. Several times, my mother's train of thought had become "fuzzy." As if she had difficulty thinking. And, several times, she rolled out of her bed and was on the floor, eyes wide open, and unresponsive. Told her to talk to her PCP. Her Doctor thinks that her blood sugar "bottomed out" and adjusted her night Insulin dosage. Let's see if it works.


That sounded like a blood sugar thing to me (my wife has had that happen before), so hopefully the insulin will help!


Her doctor just now told her to keep a daily log of her values.


I've been running a set of observations to see how long it takes for me to be involuntarily logged out. So, after an hour of inactivity, I was involuntarily signed out. And I believe I know why. Each person signed in to the server creates a process. This process includes memory space, a slice of processor time, and other resources provided by the server. These resources are used up even when a user is inactive. If there's not enough resources available, then the server runs the risk of crashing. Logging off the inactive users frees those resources, increasing the average time between crashes.

Also, say hello to post number 5,000. *Confetti, fireworks*


Yeah, I suspect this was an intentional change. One hour makes sense.

This makes using my phone even more of a hassle, though I can't blame them.

Shouldn't need to maintain a process to keep a user logged in. They're still tracking user state - comments read, etc. Probably doing it clientside with cookies or something anyway.

Just request the cookie, spawn a thread, drop it when efficient.

Might be intentional, though I think I was seeing it before the downtime.

Still annoying. I refresh to see if there are new comments, don't see any, go away, remember that it might have logged me out, go back and check.

However, it shouldn't be dependent on the *newest* cookie, they don't go 'stale' immediately, right?

Hmmmm... coookies... dangit, now I'm hongry.

May we find wisdom and patience in these annoying situations.

It sounds like not wanting to spend too much money on IT without quite realizing what the impact on users will be


Well, time will tell if my theory proves correct. Multitasking operating systems provide a "watchdog timer" as part of their task manager. If a given process is in a wait-state after so many task switches, that process is terminated.

No, it's definitely the site that's getting weird/buggy


The Director of Technology said that the problem should be fixed around 12 - 1 PM Pacific Time.

So my friend passed away last night. I was with a friend when I got the news...so we mourned together and got some others to come over.

I want to share with...what he meant to me.

I have known him for at least twenty years... when I joined his game. He was a great game master...and a great friend. He was always there for me. If I needed money...he would almost have it....he would cook for us when we went over to is place to game...or if we ordered out and you did not have any money he would cover you. I would talk to him via IM every night...talk about problems and such all about whatever.

He was the second person I came out to...and I was nervous...because I knew he had...issues with trans people. Apparently years ago a trans person came on to him very heavily. But he never showed any signs of it...and was very supportive...a friend asked him how he was dealing with it. His response was...'I have to support her. She is my friend.' He buried his prejudices for me...it means a lot to me...

Tomorrow (or the day after) I am going to be posting thread on the off topic discussion thread....and probably just come out in general on the boards. Life is too short to be not who you are...and people should know what a great person my friend was.


I'm so sorry for your loss, Selene. I'm glad you got the chance to say goodbye. The World will be less bright for his passing.

EDIT: *Also, hugs*

hugs to Selene

Congrats to Raven Black on getting the axe the right way... licenciement économique, right?

Alas no.

Because they did not want to spend a single cent on setting me free, they even refused the rupture conventionnelle I offered them.

So I had to do an abandon de poste so that after three weeks without work and thus without wages they finally deigned firing me for faute grave.

Thank God that I have this new job because they are already a week late in sending me the papers I would have needed to get my unemployment money :-(

Selene,

That your friend was a good friend that is what makes it hardest, and may you have strength in the times ahead, bolstered by the good times, cautioned by the harder ones.

And I thought my workplace was horrible...

In French the word for work comes from the name of a torture instrument... in English work is just a 4 letter word.

Or to quote my Physics instructor from High School...

"Work is a four letter word ending in 'k'. By the time you're done with this course, you'll be thinking of it as a different word ending in 'k'. That's physics."
