I have no idea how to get the yellow off my hands, but I didn't really want to turn into a Simpsons character.

Extremely sorry about the downtime. Scaling up to multiple machines has revealed a peculiar issue with a scheduled process that's supposed to run every night... once. It was run on every machine instead, putting the database in a deadlock state.

•sexual content/nudity
•hate topics (racism/sexism/homophobia/transphobia/etc)
•depression/suicide/mental health

The thing is, I don't know if I actually like it any better than the old one!

I might have to look at this one again in the morning. But maybe a new avatar?

I think I need to turn the night time colour changing thing off because I have no idea what colour anything is
