Posted on 01/31/2010 11:33:33 AM PST by Minn

Is it just me, or have FR's servers had a real tough week?

Tough is a rather mild characterization.

It's you.

(PS: I tried to answer this earlier, but I kept getting SERVER CRASH messages.)

Yes, I believe.

I’m in Des Moines, Iowa, on Qwest DSL and FR has been very slow or unavailable to me off and on recently.

Northern California has had super high wind and rain over the past 2 weeks. I think conditions in central California —where Jim Thomson lives— have been equally series.

It’s hugh. Series even. Worse than when the moose bit my sister - but, if you go take a shower and come back after a while, all will be well, but only if you’re logged on.

It works fine for me. Except when the server is down, of course.

They keep messing with their tables and thus we get 502’s.

Very annoying and I know of no other site that has as many problems as FR.

Wasn't you - might NOT have been the FR server... as this traceroute shows:

129.250.24.195 19ms 21ms 20ms TTL: 0 (mg-1.a01.mlpsca01.us.da.verio.net ok) 128.242.105.82 20ms 22ms 21ms TTL: 0 (No rDNS) 209.157.64.200 23ms 22ms 24ms TTL: 52 (No rDNS)

gets to line one above, but not 2, line 3 is the FR server..

Really? Name some other forums with the same amount of traffic that owns their own servers.

Here is mine and the error they are experiencing is a table issue or gateway problems preventing access or slowing access to their servers.

I don’t know why they would change the table or routing but, I can clearly reach them with no issues so FR is doing something to their layer 2.

“Very annoying and I know of no other site that has as many problems as FR.”

I think it’s carefully timed to coincide with the quarterly fund raisers.

You know, I just went and took a shower, logged in, and what do you know? I can now get in except of course when the server is down. Which is quite often the last few days. Other than that, well, there was that time when all our base belonged to someone, can’t remember who, but no problemo.

LOL. Your point?(I would have answered a Looooooong time ago but........).

No implied indictment of anyone but the site is down, down down. Darn it. I wanted to spend my Sunday going back through some posts

It’s not a DoS issue or even layer 3 issue. It is clearly a layer 2 as I can reach their gateway lickity split when I ping or tracert.

It’s not just you...I’ve had fits trying to even get here.

FIREFOX keeps telling me to “reset the connection.”
IE just now told me that I “cannot connect to this page.”

I had thought I was having problems with FF, but evidently not.

Do they own their own servers and is their traffic rate comparable to FR? Are they a forum?

A lot of the forums rent space. Few have their own servers. Having our own servers means we can say what we like and are truly free on FR.

DJ get over yourself. We are all just talking here and when we can’t get a FR fix, like any junkie we start talking jibberish or in a meandering fashion.

ergo: “What’s happening?” “What’s that noise?” “Who moved my Cheese?”. We are just wondering out loud and sumtimes we mught ‘ven had spelin’ an’ grammur ishues.

FR gets a LOT of traffic and is also attacked by the left. There are alternate sites to go to that get actual news about what’s happening when we’re down rather than inferring something dishonest.
