OTT fatal error!

Tuesday, December 22, 2009 by

Wondering why – yet again – OTT is fast heading down the gurgler?

Well, thanks for your interest. At the moment, the website has been put on some sort of ‘danger list’ by its webhosts, due to a CPU usage issue I just plain don’t understand. With the Sword of Damacles having over its head (we’ve been told we’ve got seven days to sort the problem, otherwise it’ll be erased) I’ve switched off various features in the hope of finding the offending PHP-hungry plugin.

And that’s why, for example, there’s no sub-navigation for our feature pages right now. I’ll add further comments to this post should there by any further updates. But if we don’t make it out of the next week alive, well, Merry Christmas, and thanks everyone for the last 10 years of writing about the telly!

    I hope to find the site (and an end of year review!) here in January. Fingers crossed but if not here’s to articles about The Mole, Wanted and the birth of reality game shows!

    Try wp-supper-cache and see if that helps.

    Probably all my big oaty features on digital channels clogging up the pipes like the gravy-sodden remains of a festive lunch. Sorry folks! :)

    Please don’t take our Off The Telly away, critical critisism will never be the same again!
