Search issue

No matter that I haven’t hit it for probably five minutes, when I hit the “search” button, I am informed that I have to wait 120 seconds.

I think it’s broken. :frowning:

I had it happen to me once about 1500PDT today. First thing I clicked gave me the you have to wait 120 seconds message.

When I try to search I get this error:

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 536870912 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 24 bytes) in /home/straightdope/ on line 3278

Of course, I know exactly what that means and that information helps me to completely fix the problem in a jiffy, but I worry that others might not.

I am one of the others. :frowning:

I was being sarcastic. I have no idea what computer gibberish error messages mean.


Use Google and the parameter.

I’m just trying to hit new posts, and for that I get an instant two minute timeout. It’s quite odd.
