Any word on improving the site's speed during high volume?
Runs fine... extra servers may brought online just for Election Day.
If you have X64 Windows, Waterfox 16.0 is your friend!
Thanks, I’ll give it a try.
Short answer? Nope.
I expect it to be out by 5PM. Better just bookmark some good sites and switch between them.
Been doing tracert to FR from command prompt. Interesting results. The problem is NOT FR's servers. It's the internet backbone itself. It's as if traffic to FR and other sites that have been critical of Dear Leader has been... helped.To which he added today (11/1/12):
DemUn was rather fast last I was able to check.Now isn't that a remarkable coinky-dink?
I wouldn't be surprised if the interwebs, or at least conservative sites, went down HARD mid-day Tuesday and stayed down until well after the final results are announced.
I’ll be hanging out at DemocraticUnderground watching their heads splode.
The TV will be peppered with results throughout the day so it’s not a REAL problem. It’s just that we love FR...
I would urge the owners to start advertising, and use the massive revenue for improving the service.
(And NH picks a Repub governor).
I set up an account on DU several weeks ago, just for election night fun. I will also be flipping between FoxNews and PMSNBC waiting for Chrissy Matthews to piss down his leg.
Yeah, I’m working on spelling “schadenfreude” too...but I expect the DUmp will be closed to non-members like it was during the debates. DUmmies don’t like outsiders to taste their tears...
I’ll be glued to FOXnews all day and (probably) all night. They are the first, the best, the only.
The internet is too slow everywhere on Election Day.
I know what you mean. I tried to engage them in some intellectual conversation a few years ago but they immediately booted me. Musta been my screen name that got them all wound up..Cheneys#1Fan
“Ill be hanging out at DemocraticUnderground watching their heads splode.”
SAME HERE. When liberal pukes suffer, I am happy and get a tingle up my leg. They need to pay and pay and PAY for their idiotic vote in 2008 that got us obamacare.
I’ll probably watch the BBC’s coverage, Fox is a sub-standard news operation, even though they don’t quite go as far to the Left as the others....the BBC is biased no doubt, but a much more professional news organization.
So go look at the TV or check Drudge. This isn’t the only site on the web to get results.
I did the same thing. Hard to read the drivel there. Some are just plain scary people there
disable ALL blocks but Breaking News. You’ll see a boost in speed right away.
I think The Blaze will be doing election night coverage. I’ll flip between that and Fox News.
I hope not! What kind of server are they using and what are they using for internet? Act like their system is out of date!!!
