Re: Issue(s)

Note: Lestrades.com was down for 12 to 18 hours, I'm not sure how long exactly. When it started I was already in bed early due to headaches, and when I woke up I was unable to get in touch with the server admin (devotee) to ask him to relaunch the MySQL server which was the issue here.
I guess I finally found an e-mail address that works ;)

I need to consider moving to another server, though. Not being able to reboot it when I'm made aware of an issue isn't great. This wasn't the case when I started the website back in 2017, and there's no reason it should be a problem today. ;)

I'll look into it.

Guys, do you think it's worth moving to another server..?
I mean the other server might be a bit slower, although it's very close in specs it's also 8 years older (!).
Also, it'd take me time to reconfigure everything. :-/
But the pros would be:
- No more crashes, hopefully, and certainly not long ones,
- Freedom to install more stuff for my own development,
- More disk space available, so no "disk full" errors, and... I get to improve the database scraping system, by caching pretty much everything.

Yeah I think you should give it a try. VPS are cheap nowadays. No need to use an 8 year old server.

Linode have good prices

Way less value than dedibox and OVH (kimsufi, or their cloud stuff.)
I'm sticking to French companies anyway. The only time I dealt with a popular web hosting in the USA was a disaster.

Kimsufi vps'es are usually pretty good if we're talking about ovh.

Yes we are.
The beta version of Lestrade's was actually running on such a vps, but it quickly moved to a dedibox server. Performance was doubled overnight.

I've noticed the font changed recently. Not entirely convinced! I think the old one was better and smoother.

I've been using Open Sang for months here (custom admin settings ;)), and thought there was no reason not to apply it to everyone else (except in mobile mode, for bandwidth reasons.)
Why the issue..? Very readable to me.

Can you please contact my email about removing one of the games you have listed from the site? It's one of my own personal projects that's directly attached to my name that I've removed from Steam and am actively trying to disconnect with, hence the lack of game mention in this reply. Thank you for your time - TempDescRemoval@mail.com

I have no idea what you're talking about...
The games listed at Lestrade's are from a database of Steam games, available or not. I haven't found any game named 'Gio-something', and I don't see why the presence of your ex-game on this database (which is also there to help users manage their libraries) would be a problem for you. Rule 38: if it exists, there's a database entry for it.
