The Tech #Barnstar

Yesterday, the #Wikimedia #labs had a problem; it was being hammered by what looked like a DDOS attack. It proved that the script that provided the Wikidata search functionality needed to be optimised more than a bit.

The software was killed but soon after that a modified version went life. Definitely a reason to be cheerful, also a moment to be grateful. I would like to present this Tech Barnstar to

  • Magnus for writing the original software
  • The Ops / Labs team for having to deal with a nasty situation
  • Legoktm for modifying the software that has the approval of the Ops team
