@davatron5000

I noticed a bug over the past week or so and it seems reproducible:

  1. Go to U.S. Government.
  2. U.S. Government is shut down.

Expected results: Government should be working.

I'm unable to debug or propose a fix since there's not an open, transparent stack trace. Conflicting error messages are being thrown as well.

Hope you can resolve this soon. It would seem that the U.S. Government would value 100% uptime in order to be a reliable and trustworthy source for the rest of the world.

Thanks! Love this project and would like to continue using it.

It's a serious architectural issue. I think it's time to go back to the drawing board and design something with scalability and modularity in mind, and have a talk with the client about the dangers of feature creep and monkeypatching every time some clueless executive wants something "right now" and can't be bothered to pay to do it right. I wouldn't even bother forking this; just redesign from the ground up. It'll be cheaper in the long run.

Well when we have a habit of changing project manager every four years, what did you expect to happen? Inconsistent leadership builds crappy software.

@micahcraig

@alexindigo This implementation was an IoC refactoring of the previous version, which had been inefficient about allocating resources. The new system was called revolutionary at the time, and while it has had remarkable uptime over the last 200+ years, like other IoC systems, the entire system can be brittle around small, isolated errors in the configuration. At this point, the best thing for the system is probably a more rigorous testing and validation procedure to try to prevent these types of issues from reaching production, and an effective operational roll-back mechanism to return to service more quickly when mistakes are made.

@sdkeithk

It's bloatware. A complete kludge. It's full of viruses and unnecessary progressive daemons. There are also a lot of parasitic threads running off it. Much of it needs to be ripped out by the roots.

There's obviously been a lot of feature creep from the original spec. The last 100 years has turned a very good design into a franken-software package.

bsod

@momentumdl

@dcarrith it is a windows kernel error. it appears that the service pack 2 of whitehouse 42 including a patch to the [sh_gingrich_exploit] was the last stable build. The integrity of both whitehouse service packs 1 and 2 of releases 43 and 44 seem corrupted. whitehouse 43 service pack 1 seems to be the root cause. Unfortunately whitehouse 43 service pack 1 was a complete re-write of the kernel. The kernel was infected with two unexpected trojan operations; [operation_Iraqi_freedom] and [operation enduring_freedom] which have been draining our system resources. To make matters worse patches sh_pelosi and sh_boehner as well as tp.10 and tp.12 are causing massive and erratic system failures.

Suggested fix: system rollback to whitehouse 42 service pack 2

Upgrade path seems to be blocked by a bunch of hard coded values set by some guy Gerry Mander. Really poor style if you ask me.

As far as I can read it, it looks like while creating a safeSeat with type republican that the case safeSeat for type blooming_idiot was overlooked. Easy mistake.

An awful lot of the bad cases are derived from the texas library. Any chance we could swap in british_columbia?

Tried xyzzy from the sys console, it did not give its usual reply of "Nothing Happens".

@JonKernPA

This bug is non-reproducible. Or at most, only a small (10%?) fraction is "shut down." To help determine the fix, the pattern seems to be small functions that extract the most pain are shutdown:

  • Families of soldiers killed will not receive death benefits
  • Otherwise accessible (by walking about and looking) national monuments have been barricaded and closed, especially to WWII vets trying to see their Memorial
  • Monday Night Football (and other NFL) is not broadcast to the troops overseas
  • People living as caretakers in dwellings such as on Lake Meade are evicted

It's time to refactor the Government. It's a top-down, command-and-control proposition with no feedback loops to dampen it's rampant appetite to swallow more GDP than ever, and demand ever more tax dollars for ever diminishing returns.

@dijitlalchemist

I don't think it's a serious problem. Even though it happens often, there's a proven workaround - simply add more TaxGenerator nodes. In the worst case, when all tax generating nodes are exhausted, we can just add more PrintPaper nodes which are infinitely scalable.

This is believed to be the Operate Civilian Dreams API.
Rumored to have been extracted from a statist elite while in captivity.

public interface OperateCivilianDreams {

   int compromise(Allowed  onlyToConcede);

   int conformity(Regulate secureCompliance);

   int assimilation(Target troubleMakers, Neutralize targets);

   int submission(InstitutionalizeInferiority complexions);

   int ignorance(double distanceFromExistenceOfFreeThoughts);

   int brutality(double distanceFromExistenceOfUnity);
}

This was also extracted from the same statist elite while in captivity. This is believed to be how they are implementing the OCD API.

We are still unsure of the specifics due to the smoke and mirrors routine used to help obfuscate the programming.

public class Teacher implements OperateCivilianDreams {
    // code is visibly hidden in order obfuscate the TRUTH
}
@adamschwartz

👍

@dijitlalchemist

Breaking News:

We just received additional intel.

Although this specific statist elite put up a challenge,
the people were able to extract what is believed to be the Mitigate Asynchronous Day Dreamers API.
It appears to be an expansion of the OCD API.

public interface MitigateAsynchronousDayDreamers extends OperateCivilianDreams{

   int persistentDiagnosis(Stage earlyOn, Stage laterOn, Treatment heavilyMedicate);

}

The following implementation was excreted by the statist while extracting the MADD API.

public class Psychiatrist implements MitigateAsynchronousDayDreamers {
    // code is visibly hidden in order obfuscate the TRUTH
}

We have reason to believe that all implementations are obfuscated.

The people are currently developing a back door program to collect more data in effort
to break the obfuscated cipher being used.

More to follow.

@mccuskerowen

I ran into this issue a while ago and found it to be a corrupt filesystem driver, EXT3. These are journaled filesystems, leveraging the latest muckraking journaling technologies, like the /sbin/johnstewart and/or /sbin/stephencobert which have done a great job in brining up corrupt filesystems in the past. .

What happened in my recent case was that the index nodes, INodes, to the objects were, what they call, redistricted, resulting in the inability to access and represent important files supporting the operating of this platform. Matter of fact most of the INodes just about represented 1% of the total disk space, which is crazy. Back then it was a kernel driver associated with that version.

Most of the time the following should work:

  1. first unmount /dev/government then type following command :

e2fsck -f /dev/government

Though, in this version of this project, a backdoor may of been written in by one, or a few, of the developers, and you may need to wait to the next version.

I do agree with the above comments, in that most other forks of this system have been working globally, and it may be the local one that has the issue.

So, as we can imagine with a system bug of this magnitude there are some unforeseen complications. The damage is much greater than initially anticipated. Another patch or reinstall will no longer work due to weakened foundation. We must incept, complete, and rollout a new system.

Seems to be this new app called Obamacare that will be required as part of the USA operating system. Modules within the app's codebase: Lobbyist, and Insurance are concerning because they will overheat all system resources.

Obamacare is moving so fast that the garbage collection feature can't do it's job. Once included and initialized, it would eventually eat away at every instance of class Savings, and raise resource consumption on Debt, that would eventually bring the limited system to crash due to unlimited resource hungry modules Lobbyist & Insurance, who'd take advantage of the fact that nobody has a choice to uninstall, or stop this new app.

No doubt the operating system needs an app like this. But like marriage, it doesn't mean to just get with some sketchy person under a veil whom you're not even sure you're compatible with yet. They tried to call the wedding off, and it didn't work. So they spiked the cool-aid so that everyone would knock out...as of this post, everyone's still out...

@JonKernPA

Many of the 330,000,000 bits of data in the USA OS need to learn about the true Founding Father's original architecture ("The 5000 Year Leap" is a good start to Freedom 101). The architecture has since been so obfuscated by a bunch of convoluted "design-by-feel-good" magazine articles and glitzy salesmen (aka, lobbyists), and "elect-me-if-I-give-you-free-stuff" politicians of all persuasions, and worse: backed by a biased Quality Assurance group (main stream media) that no longer holds accountable whether the features work.

It seems a rogue module working inside the /sys/lib/congress has been able to extract and decrypt an artifact from an SRS Document titled "The Golden Manifesto", aliased as "The Book of Secrets". We have reason to believe the original book has been destroyed.

The decryption has revealed what appears to be an abstract system use case flow diagram of sorts.

Experts are currently relocating to an undisclosed location to begin transmission of this finding.

Glad you were able to get restart (yeah!) but am still seeing some really weird results. It looks like a rogue process issa_r_ca made a call to park_service.subpoena with a request for reason.close

However service park_service.director is responding with a call to issa_r_ca

Maybe some bad test data got left behind?

I try to navigate to http://whitehouse.gov and get a 301 redirect to the Republic of North Korea...anyone else having this issue?

sudo rm -rf /Congress && shutdown -h

@dijitlalchemist

From the command-line, type "run tool.aenima.aenema(USGov);", then press enter.

The results sound very promising.

Wait a second, this is neither a bug nor a feature...

They are priming for a universal system rollout across the globe(!)

Ran original code and it appears to be working again.

Should mark as #wontfix.

@yegortimoshenko

This issue should have happened someday: the very problem causing it is the dependency hell. Republicans and democrats should stick with semantic versioning from now on. The other approach is to rewrite the whole code base on the top of Libertarianism stack. It will be expensive in development for sure, but at the same time much easier to maintain, robust little codebase, almost no dependencies, concurrent approach, runs on almost any hardware.

The code is working now, but there are credible rumors that it's been infected with a zero-day exploit programmed for Jan 15, 2014.

@dijitlalchemist

Looks like this command works whether or not this bug exists.

@zachleat

Please close as resolved.

Will reopen a new ticket in the next sprint.

@davatron5000

Thanks everyone! This was a very fun ~730 comment thread. The government is open again. For awhile at least.

No need to file any more issues, reply to this, or tell any more jokes. We told all the jokes.

@mrmarkroudebush

Can I vote for us to do a postmortem meeting on this one? I'd rather not repeat the same mistakes next sprint.

@dijitlalchemist

I agree with Mark R. The bug isn't the state of the government feature, it is the government feature itself.

So the mistakes are inevitable.

Sorry for not jumping on this sooner, in hopes the Intelligence Community could assist in a resolution. Ever since @EdwardSnowden 'marked as public' his forks of some private @NSA projects everything's been a bit crazy.

Unfortunately we may be doing this all over again next year starting on January 15.

@mattrayner
shutdown -r now

may have failed?

Could export democracy; be part of the issue?

Could be.

@chrisfranko

Has anyone made sure the dependencies dont have some obscure problem?

@xiongchiamiov

...someone's a little late.

This is probably a good use for github's thread locking feature.

@ExtAnimal

Best solution is to revert to the pre 1776 commit.

The British government has never exhibited this bug. So it was definitely introduced after that.

@sqram
sqram commented Apr 3, 2015

It's not a bug, it's a feature.
Please lock thread as @xiongchiamiov suggested :)

@weshatheleopard

Why is this bug closed? The root case of the problem has not been eliminated!

@lmon
lmon commented Apr 3, 2015

Isn't the root cause the existence of the government?

Many bugs are very old and unsolved, the Shellshock Vulnerability for example was around since 1989 but not found/fixed until 2014! It's never too late.

@chrisfranko

Better late than never.
