The instability you've seen since then was tracked down to a misconfiguration on one of our web servers that limited the number of connections it could make to our caching cluster. Since it wasn't able to hit the caching cluster effectively, it was trying to connect to the database, which spawned another connection attempt, which failed, which made TheOnyx something something.
The misconfiguration has been res

. However, as a firm appreciator of raptors I must give this latest update two thumbs up for the awesome, updated skeletal raptor mount model - even if it doesn't make any sense. Then again, we ride on horses made of stars so what's my problem with a skeleton? At least it has
