Just wanted to say,

Mega THANKS for whatever you did to fix the servers yesterday.

We were all worried about access to FR threads on Election Day, but it looks like you solved the problem.

Let's all give them a hand -- and contribute to the Freepathon!

My front page is headlines only, I have cut down to 20 the number of returns and replies. I only have the breaking news sidebar right now.

It looks like a lot of FReepers have done the same.

Plus whatever the bug was that John found and fixed seems to have done wonders for the site.

Thanks!

It’s still early in the day - time will tell. In the meantime, turn off all unnecessary link boxes in your account settings. Makes a big difference.

Having run companies providing web based applications that ran 24/7 and tended to require ever increasing bandwidth and servers, I want to share with all those without such a background just how vexing some of the seemingly ever present technically related challenges are that crop up actually are...especially when you have to run such operations on less than an optimal budgets. To run a major operation like Free Republic on the budgets you do is quite commendable.

Keep up the good work you guys.

I've done the same but my problem is not that the pages load slowly it is getting a response or connection to the server.

No problems this morning though.

Yes, thanks for posting this. I’ve been thinking the same thing - if FR were some podunk chat room, that would be one thing. But it’s tremendously successful and powerful/ growing daily. JR et al. have done a yeoman’s job of staying ahead of the curve. Well done, Jim. And thank you.

Good work John and Jim, it can’t be easy having to

only because this site means so much to us and our
country.

Thanks again for all you do, we DO appreciate it!!!

I agree, grey_whiskers.

I was reconciling myself to having to miss FR tonight.

I have been excited to see the site really humming today.

Good job, Jim and John. Thanks.

Thank you very much, grey_whiskers!! But the thanks should all go to John.

He posted yesterday what he had to change to fix the server and it was all way over my head. Apparently swapped out a key piece of our web server software.

And she seems to be holding up under the load. Woo hoo!!
