Forum maintenance Mar 25-27

Hi - if you tried to connect to recently (Mar 26, 2022) and had trouble, it was because we had to do some system maintenance and are just getting the hang of the processes. We are in the middle of adding the Data Explorer Plug-in for Discourse, which will let us learn more about the internal workings. The disk size had to be increased.
Sorry for any inconvenience.

The Data Explorer Plug-in has been added. If anyone wants access, feel free to ask, here or via Contact: Priority Message Form

It’s an interesting example of a GUI for surfacing readonly SQL to a tech-savvy membership, via browser.

FYI: the database is Postgresql running on the same box as Discourse itself, all on Linux on AWS EC2.
