Stack Apps is a question and answer site for apps, scripts, and development with the Stack Exchange API. It's 100% free, no registration required.

When I try to view the following URL:

http://api.stackexchange.com/2.0/questions?page=93781&site=stackoverflow

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.
