The wiki's software is up to date. It's running very slowly and has been for a long time. Created content backup: MW_fullbu_15Dec2013.xml

There are exactly 1 gazillion spambot accounts. Ok, it's actually 149,292 total accounts, most of which are bots. I tweaked the removeUnusedAccounts.php script.. took out the check for logs. Ran and deleted ~146k accounts, couple thousand remain.. dunno why yet.

Ran updateArticleCount.php (was seeing count errors when editing)

..and why is the memory usage so high? top - 15:04:00 up 269 days, 10:53, 2 users, load average: 7.47, 7.45, 6.52 Tasks: 13 total, 4 running, 9 sleeping, 0 stopped, 0 zombie Cpu(s): 56.2%us, 3.6%sy, 19.9%ni, 19.5%id, 0.2%wa, 0.0%hi, 0.6%si, 0.0%st Mem: 16433988k total, 16262920k used, 171068k free, 1267844k buffers Swap: 7823644k total, 584084k used, 7239560k free, 4145820k cached
