Anyone had that happen?

"/ads/writebanner.mv: Line 93: MvLOCKFILE: Runtime Error: Error creating lockfile 'banners/zoneview.dbf.lck': Timed out waiting for lock"

It's not really much if a timeout issue if it pops up the second you click on the topic, right? Or is it more a sign of a connectivity issue on my end?

Yeah, it happens from time to time. It's a symptom of a race condition in the code.

"It's a symptom of a race condition in the code."

Lol. Racial profiling? :)

PS. Yesterday was my first time ever.

Not that sort of race. Race as in running a race.

Couple of times for me today.

Isn't this the famous "Lockfile" error, been going on for ages …..

There was a "lockfile" error way back when, when you posted something*, but not when you simply opened a topic. At least that's never been my case.

* And you would end up with duplicate comments if you weren't careful.

Got it for the 1st time today. Only on 1 post and it stopped after 3 or 4 attempts.

Started for me today…happening fairly frequently…every 4-5 clicks.

Had it earlier today (about 6 AM EST) several times.

Seems to have abated

No, it means heavy traffic.

Different database.

Had it happen several times today, never seen it before.

Legion 405 Nov 2017 3:13 p.m. PST

Yeah, I got that earlier today also … And it has happen a number of times before.

I had a sighting today early evening here on the western USA (PST)…. reloaded the URl address and it went away. Maybe the "bug" is writing its own text for a TMP article post soon. Would be interesting if the "bug" was bugged.

"Maybe the "bug" is writing its own text for a TMP article post soon."

This would imply an AI has somehow evolved out of the TMP bugs. :)
