In Topic: mygov seems to be down - at least in W.A.

Yesterday, 04:30 PM

Being all and I mean all, of the government phone lines are coming back "busy" I assume it is not just me...

I really do not understand "Mygov" we built networks and distributed servers decades ago to provide resilience, now they want to stick it all under one URL.. really smart... not.

We are at the mercy of idiots...



Why would they not have distributed servers for mygov, vs 10 different unique websites?

Whatever the latest FF build is, but it's been like this for a while: the quick reply box is by default grey until I click on it, and then it goes white and the editing controls/buttons/etc appear.

As far as text still appearing after you post, it's not happening here regularly, and when it does it's because the page is cached and still showing what was there, eg hitting back a page, sometimes.


AFAIK nothing has changed with the forum.  Have you noticed this elsewhere on the web?  Does your ISP run a proxy?

That's what the combination of hyperpartisanship and social media enables: there's always someone that doesn't like someone else and is ready to jump on anything they say, with an instant large audience. It's been decades since the US had a leader a supermajority rallied around, and I don't see that changing anytime soon.

It's twisted logic to think you should be taking responsibility for Haiti, just because someone pointed out its fucked up history.

https://www.washingt...iti-a-shithole/ Haiti's been invaded and deposed a fair few times. Countries promising money to fix problems they introduces like to not pay up. Which part of that is the problem for some Haitian in the street, dying of cholera, to take responsibility for?
