MySQL people...

I've got a small paying job if you're up for it. When editing an entry, I'm getting things like this:

Database error [966]: Duplicate entry '1-13' for key 2
Database error [966]: Duplicate entry '2-6' for key 2

The edit goes fine, but it's nevertheless spitting back an error. The range after "Duplicate entry" varies every time, but I believe key 2 stays the same.

If you think you can fix this, email me at e@kinetictrader.com and we'll work something out. Please don't request to work on it if you're not FLUENT in MySQL and know how to approach the problem. Thanks!

Goathack: I'm A Dufus

I really think I broke something on my goathack. I'm a dufus and shouldn't be let within SSHing distance of any server.

Anyway, my goathack (8013) is a bit broken. I was looking at the styles (global.look etc) and I have no idea what I've done, but I've broke it.

I tried uploading from CVS and setting CHMOD on the files for 777 but nothing is happening. The "page" element is defined, I can see it both in the global.look and the generic.look

Um, help?

Side: Do we think it might be a good idea to have goathack as some kind of discussion forum for us newbie fools who go around breaking our goathack server, so as not to bother lj_dev?

500 error when accessing goathack

any idea why i'm getting a 500 error from the server on my goathack account right now? i just did a 'cvs update' and 'cvsreport.pl -c -s' to update to the most current version of everything... and i'm getting the page that says "sorry, we're currently working on something. the site will be back up shortly."

what gives?
