looks like cybre.space might be having intermittent problems with duplicating new posts made by users on here, looking into it now. (in the meantime, if someone sends you multiples of the same reply, it's probably not their fault!)

cybre.space users: this appears to be due to the cybre.space web server taking too long to respond and returning a 504 / timeout error. if you see this happen, it might mean the server is just processing slowly and will eventually submit the post! (looking into why it's taking so long, but this should help you avoid accidentally submitting duplicates in the meantime)


server slowness appears to be due to degraded disk performance on the host, following up with them to see if there's anything to be done about it

and then suddenly its fine?? didnt get a response to my support ticket but i'll take it

@chr cybre's hosting has repeatedly broken in various ways more frequently than seems normal for Cloud Hosting Providers and like, don't they have SLAs or something? i don't understand

@haskal digitalocean is definitely failing their SLA, but hetzner has been basically fine til now aside from an occasional short outage that kicked something of ours over. we are unfortunately getting what we're paying for, there, though.

@chr Very odd. Could it possibly be failing disks that switched to backups?

@chr did the issues coincide with a backup window of some kind? I used to get this kind of behaviour periodically, and it took me ages to put 2 and 2 together and realise what was going on.
