Database problem?

Everything I click on seems to have been discontinued by Lego on April 9th. I assume there is some sort of database corruption, or...?

    LEGO's product feeds, which are imported every night, are currently empty. I've reported the problem and I'm told a fix is imminent.

    If a product isn't it, the corresponding date in the table isn't changed so the system thinks it's no longer available.

    Just FYI, it looks like the problem returns as some sets are showing EOL date of April 15th (#8110, #42000 for example). The EOL data looked normal during the weekend.

    I can fiddle the database to prevent them appearing to be discontinued but I need to do it manually. I haven't done it today. The feed is still down but I have chased lego to get it fixed.

    Is there some major issue with the database today? All I'm getting when viewing any set details is 'Sorry -- Brickset Ajax responders can only be called from Brickset itself. Please use the API to obtain data.'

    ^ interesting... What browse re you using? Are you deliberately obfuscating the referrer anyhow?

    @Huw I'm using Opera browser on Windows XP. I always do and have never had a problem before. It's the standard browser, I'm not using any tricks or anything like that.

    Every tab I click on says the same thing:

    Ah, that explains it :-)

    'Send referrer information' section.

    Thanks @Huw, I ticked the box and it seems to be fine now. Odd thing is, I never unticked it...

    I was seeing loads of errors generated from my ajax responder pages where the referring page was not set which indicated that something automatic was calling them.

    So I put in a check to ensure the referrer is set, hence the problem. If Opera has this setting unticked by default maybe I need to come up with a different approach.
