Warning: mysql_connect(): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (111) in /home/foiled2/public_html/kwontom/pinclude.php on line 7
Cannot connect to the database because: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (111)

...is what I got when I submitted Sunday's puzzle. At least it wasn't another accursed "not done yet".

Felt like a decent run, too. Not a fast weekend by any means, but it felt enough quicker than Saturday to at least be competitive with astrokath's time. Is there any way to reconstruct it from the logs of the above error? If not at least I improved on my time from last Sunday - even after coming back 5 minutes later and solving it a second time.

You should have been able to hit refresh/reload on the error page, and as soon as the database was accessible again your solution would have been resubmitted... to save you having to do it again. I guess it was what you might call a "glitch in the matrix", just a temporary db problem. I just completed the puzzle myself, and didn't see that error. Annoying, though!
