I keep getting it ...
« on: July 31, 2011, 05:20:20 AM »
Hi Troops

I keep getting this thing, after a few seconds, I try again and usually get in ...

Anyone else afflicted, or is it just me ??

Eric,

I was having problems this moring, about 9:00AM or so. Was on again about 5:30PM everything seemed ok.

Right now, 6:30PM everything seems fine still.

Modified to add:

Almost 7:00PM worked fine.

So I found a couple of issues.

1. Between 12am and 2am EST, the server runs a host of maintenance programs and hogs up CPU and memory making things slow way down.
2. I had ordered an extra gig of ram. it was there for a awhile but seems to have disappeared. I have opened a case with the hosting company.

There were some database issues that got worked out over the past few days. In case you didn't know, we crashed on Friday night. The hosting service got us back up pretty quick, but I found a bunch of issues with the databases that I had to fix. Just finished a little while ago.

Still working on resolving everything.

I think the problems with slowness and other issues not related directly to the forums server space etc.There has has been an increase in the amount of hack attacks and cyber warfare in the last 2 weeks. Could be tied to the worlds current, Economic dealings or just Opportunists. The way the backbone of the internet is set up there are bottle neck spots, and other things that can slow down data.
Since the server is in Canada, and members are all across numerous borders, time zones etc. I personally  think that the current internet infrastructure, is in worse shape then the powers to be let on.  :doh:

Wife is a Farmville/Frontierville zombie, and she has been complaining that it is slowing up again, I only had issues with this site the other night as mentioned. Any of the other sites that I frequent, only occasional slow loadings assorted times and days.

Eric,

This is really getting annoying. I can load 10 other sites whilst waiting for Madmodder to load.

Once it is loaded, it doesn't perform much better.

Took 3 goes to upload this.

Yup. Not the sites fault, but the hosts fault. They had an issue with the VPS hardware... Started with the site having a slow response time to not being able to access it. Hopefully it is fixed now.

I get up when I'm brassed off with watching Sky News going around it's 1 hour cycle of gloom and despondency ...

Usually about 7:30.

That's when the chuntering starts ...

I get up somewhere between 10 in the morning and 2 in the afternoon. Mostly nearer 2pm.

I suffer with Non 24hour syndrome (or something) sometimes referred to as 2'til2.
