Where are the Band Bios? - Bios are having issues!

pc-pdx Jul 11 2012 2:36P 1

Hey everybody!
Last.fm is where we currently get the band bios and it appears that their servers have been going through some funky patches lately.

A few weeks back, we noticed that some band pages were taking something on order of a full minute or two for loading. SUCKASS!

We responding with "ohfuck, we gotta do something about that" so we created a new data access call that will abort after 2 seconds of no response.

If that happens, it means that you will see a band page with NO bio. The bios might come back intermittently or they might be out for a while... it's all up to last.fm at the moment.

We figured that it was more important for you guys to be able to surf through bands links, or whatevs you're doing, and find the shows quickly - rather than waiting for who knows how long for the bios to load.

(for the nerds: i realize there should be a note on the page saying that a timeout happened and those bios are temp unavailable, but our shitty old code doesn't easily allow for that right now. SORR.)



talk about it …
