The Seneschal regrets to announce that the MySQL database is behaving in a manner most unbecoming a MySQL database. The posting of comments is directly affected. If you receive a MySQL error when trying to post a comment, please try again. And likely, again and again and again. It will eventually go through. Just click the "back" button on your browser and your comment should still appear entered in the comment entry box. Just re-enter your name, email and URL (as needed) and reevaluate the CAPTCHA and click submit again. The Seneschal suggests that commentators copy the text of their comments to the clipboard or perhaps to some such text editor like Notepad before submitting, just in case. The Seneschal has asked the Chamberlain to contact the host to complain.
