Why don't they just put a page, "Temporarily out of order"?

I still hope it's just a problem with their MySQL server. I imagine over 350,000,000 table rows can be tricky to manage efficiently.

Is this for the "provable fair" component? Because they definitely don't have that many members

Also, one must bear in mind they are still a comparatively small business, but when they are handling >$2 million worth of others' funds, they have to tread with some degree of integrity.

Has anyone had an email back from the support address, or at least tried to do so?
It's the number of bets they have stored.

Anecdote: A few months ago I noticed my old SatoshiDice account got slower and slower. I assume because the betting code accessed database rows from far back, and load it from disk.
SatoshiDice optimized the code a few weeks ago. Old accounts are not slow anymore. I don't think they even mentioned the improvement.
I imagine there still might be corner cases that lead to heavy database stress.

These are all just guesses, because the web server currently reports a MySQL error:
https://session.satoshidice.com/userapi/useraddress/

That's a good point, equally it could be because they've simply ran off and turned the machine off, and nothing serves to explain the lack of correspondence.

Also, what is the sense in maintining such a large MySQL database? Surely all you need now is secret URLs/emails/deposit addresses and account balance that can be updated? Keep summary stats about previous bets to populate the leaderboards/etc. If it's for transparency purposes, a tape backup would suffice, given we (presumably) can't access those SQL records anyway.

Betting is slow, so some code needs to be tidied up somewhere. Slow bets frustrate, and frustrated customers leave and stop placing bets (=bad)

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin Core, which will follow the rules of the network no matter what miners do. Even if every miner decided to create 1000 bitcoins per block, full nodes would stick to the rules and reject those blocks.

How would you know anyone else's deposit address other than your own? Its more helpful if you post a link to the transactions rather than just yelling at the sky.

Better check your deposit address on blockchain and pray to be intact... one example is with over 30 BTC : 1XemPRB9kTKELdhQ3igoaJyqTkxUDg3zU

The transaction was made on the 16th when Satoshidice was up (they were down the 14th and 15th I believe, up the 16th, now down the 17th 18th and 19th) ...and the output address only has like 40 BTC in it..... so I wouldn't really use that as proof of anything. You could certainly be right, but it would nice to have actual proof. Even if Randian could post here and just tell everyone to fuck off it would be appreciated. At least we would know.

Their Cold Storage still intact...so IF it was a hack...they could recover.

Nobody fucking knows right now because of their piss poor communication.

Even if their hot wallet was hacked, they still have over 5000 BTC in cold storage.
It will be a loss but SatoshiDice can recover.

tried to send an email to the master of coin email address on randianhero's website, it bounced.
Their mail server is online. My mail to support@satoshidice.com did not bounce.

I don't know if Randians email ever worked, but yes @satoshidice.com still works. Not that I guess it means much.

SD, I have no bitcoin on your site, but seriously, this is like the worst possible way for you to handle a downtime. There are over 5k btc invested in your bankroll, and it seems you don't care to communicate with your players and investors. If you cannot fix the problem quickly, at least explain it briefly and give people some info about ETA.

I couldn't agree more with you. Unfortunately time after time SatoshiDice has shown that they don't really care to keep their customers/investors informed and their support has been inefficient and slow to say the least in a lot of cases. I'd say that I hope they will change their attitude but I can't see it happening since this is not the first time happening.
