Server Problems?
« on: June 07, 2014, 10:44:29 AM »
For the past few days, I've been having lots of problems with opening/reading/posting/previewing on the forums.  Is there any known issue with the FE server?

The ping seems to be okay, although the round trip time and latency are pretty poor.

My 20Mbps ADSL2+ connections is fine with all other sites:
 



I'm using Win 7, 64 bit and Firefox 29.0.

Any advice appreciated.   :)

This has been happening to me for months. The site often loads really slowly when going into the fourms, looking at posts, or looking at anything really. It's annoying but I've been working around it.

I'm losing patience.        >:( 

Sometimes it can take 45 seconds to more than a couple of minutes for a single page to load.  Occasionally I get a server not responding error message.  Which is why I think it's a problem at the FE server's end.

Yeah, I get frustrated and just say "screw it" quite often.  The web server has gone to shit.

I usually get this error. Maybe they aren't allocating enough bandwidth?

I have been getting the same problems. Just on this website. All the others are working OK.

That's because this web site is being run by people who don't care enough to realize that they don't know how to properly run a web site.

Taking a look at this today.  Might be setting up a CDN for the site as well in the near future.

I'm having lots of problems today, but they seem like the time of day.

If I get access by the time I have to go to work, I'll make this site suck less speed wise.

I wonder if this problem has anything to do with the daily registration of 2000 spam bots.

My solution will actually help with that noise too. Should help all over with a lot of issues. Just gotta wait on Daniel to do his magic.

In other words, don't hold your breath.
