Each night I've been going to bed while the site has been working perfectly (Ok, so it's been a bit slow, but it was anyway). When I wake up, I check on my phone, expecting to find a number of new fics to read from the gift exchange, but all I'm getting is the 503 error!!!!

IDK if the fics have been posted and I just can't access them, or the site went down before Ame could post them.... it's getting so frustrating!

Ok, it's up again, but no gift fics yet :(

I think this is the longest it's been down since it started playing up again.

So I'm not the only one seeing a pattern. The site appears to fall over around about midnight zulu on a daily basis. I'm no computer programmer but I'm aware that UTC is utilised in internet Network Time Protocols.

According to the 'Mania's profile page, you can set your local time based on the difference between your location and GMT, however, I've noticed that the 'Mania does not actually use GMT or UTC because the 'Mania's expression of my local time goes out by an hour whenever the UK goes to Daylight Saving Time.

The plot thickens!

Could a server upgrade have resulted in a conflict caused by some kind of wibbly wobbly timey wimey dissonance?

Not on Gatchamania, clearly. :P

Unless that's what she wants us to think!

Galactor and Spectra have teamed up and jeopardized the fic exchange. Apparently it wasn't centred enough on Katse and Zoltar being brilliant and clever and fics all about their victories. ( They got a copy of the requests and are holding Gatchamania hostage.)

Yup, 'twas me! It got to be a series -- the site was going down so much! Usually it was Zoltar and the Sunshine boys at work, though Zark malfunctioned once (as if anybody could tell the difference!)

It looks like I'll have to start writing about that again...if for no other reason than to make sure the Fennecs are okay!
