Here's how it works:
  1. Anybody can ask a question
  2. Anybody can answer
  3. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top

When I try to view the following URL:

I get the error:

  "error_id": 500,
  "error_name": "internal_error",
  "error_message": "this error has been logged"

Normally an invalid page returns an empty question set, not a 500 error. But this isn't even an invalid page. At the time of the request above, the API reports that Stack Overflow has 2813421 questions, so:

2813421 / 30 = 93780.7 (which rounds to 93781)

There should be a page 93781.

The query backing that method, while not bad really, didn't look to be up to quite that much data/paging.

It's been replaced with a better query in the latest build, which should be plenty fast.

Thanks - it seems to be working much better now. – Nathan Osman Mar 20 '12 at 18:28
