    That's a temporary failure. Most likely load related. Most likely due to daily maintenance tasks. Most likely due to mysql on FreeBSD.

    - tye        

        His advice makes a difference. It just doesn't actually eliminate the problem, IME. But then, I didn't get to build mysql myself so I don't know what parameters were used.

        - tye        

      I haven't been able to load Cool Uses for about a week now -- but can load other pages such as "Seekers of Perl Wisdom", "Recently Active Threads" and "Perl Monks Discussion" etc. The "The Monastery Gates" is another link that doesn't load.

        Thanks for reporting that. I'm at a particularly busy spot at work for a few days, so I haven't gotten around to mining the various logs for more specific details on the failure. Cool Uses for Perl loaded just fine and very quickly for me before I replied. It failed for me just now.

        So it seems to be an intermittent problem. Note, however, CUfP has yet to fail for me in the manner described in the root note, upon which my initial assessment of the likely cause was based. It is even possible that the two failure modes are nearly completely unrelated.

        But I will try to carve out the time to mine logs soon.

        In the mean time, a cheap replacement for CUfP is to follow this link and then click the Search button: ?node_id=3989;re=N;CU. You'll just get the most recent node titles as links that you can click on.
