    We've all seen pages being slow to load / partial page loads for the last couple months. This goes beyond that. Two things I'm seeing: 1) Blank pages being "served". You hit a link, and get a blank page. 2) Connection errors - This is happening when posting a comment. When posting, I get a "server connection reset" error. Is it time to swap out the hamsters running the FR servers for some fresh ones?

    Our FRiends have inspired us, made us laugh and think, and (may I say?) helped us feel a little less lonely and despondent these past eight years. For all our arguments, diversity of thought, and passion, Jim and his crew really do keep the light of freedom and constitutional consciousness alive. With this long-awaited victory, how about considering a donation to FR and a moment, now, to name and commend one or two special FRiends. Thank YOU.

  • ‘Free Republic’ Now A Safe Space for Donald Trump Supporters [Jim's response at post 25]

    The Federalist ^ | 05/12/2016 | Robert Tracinski
    On the right, we’ve grown to pride ourselves on our greater openness to debate and ideas, on having no need to toe a Politically Correct line or crawl into a “safe space” like pampered college kids who just can’t handle hearing from anyone who disagrees with them. For myself, I am so personally dedicated to this ideal that I even perform the great personal sacrifice of reading the comments field beneath my articles. Yet somehow I wasn’t surprised to see Donald Trump supporters, those swaggering tough guys, turn one of their favorite Internet forums into a safe space where they...

    Congratulations to our presumptive nominee, Donald Trump! Great job in New York and throughout this campaign. Cruz and Kasich are now mathematically eliminated and just like all the others who were mathematically eliminated should concede and drop out so we can all unite behind our nominee and prepare to defeat the godless America-hating traitor Hillary Clinton in November. As conservatives and patriots, it's time to put bruised egos behind us, heal our differences and act united in the best interests of our nation. The media and the GOPe will try to keep us divided, of course, but we must not...

    I was surfing FR this afternoon and suddenly was unable to access any page on FR and the error stated the server could not be found. I located the IP address, 209.157.64.200, of the server and then added an entry into my PC's host file and I can now see FR again. I still do not see a DNS entry for FR, and that is interesting.

    So I noticed a bunch of people have been able to find the trick to getting to FR using the IP in their browser, but can't log in. Here's a step-by-step guide for Windows on how to log in. NOTE: You need to be an administrator on your machine. You don't have to do anything scary, but you need admin privileges to do the following simple task in step 1. Step 1: Open Notepad as Administrator Navigate to Notepad. If you don't have a shortcut handy you can just click the Windows Start button (or in Windows 8+ just press...

    The DNS server should be working now. Woo hoo! Dumb-dumb out of date records error led to administrative hold. John finally got them to update and release the hold. Long convoluted story, but that's not important. What's important now is that we're up and running just in the nick of time for Wisconsin.

    Received the above email message (actually subject only-no message) from LibbyLu. I'm saving her the trouble of having to spread it far and wide on the internet. It'll be on google in moments with this post. Guess the TrueBlueConservatives™ who would rather allow Hillary to waltz into the White House if Trump is our Republican nominee rather than voting for him are going to attempt to take down FR. Good luck with that. As far as I'm concerned not voting for our Rebublican nominee against the America-hating, constitution-hating, God-hating Marxist/fascist/socialist/democrat totalitarian traitors is tantamount to treason. I can remember when...

            A HUMBLE SPIRIT It's always surprising to me when someone, in an honest and unguarded moment, confides that God could never use THEM. They may keep up appearances most of the time, but, down deep, they just don't feel worthy. Have you ever felt that way? If so, you're in luck; God places a high value on humility! In fact, your sincere recognition of your own need may just be the key that opens the door to a deeper, more genuine and rewarding spirituality. Isaiah wrote, "For thus says the High and Holy One Who...

    I have found that the site Replace smart quotes with regular straight quotes fixes the problem Free Republic recently has with quotes and dashes. For example, a New York Times article As Germany Welcomes Migrants, Sexual Attacks in Cologne Point to a New Reality that when originally pasted looks like this: COLOGNE, Germany — In early December, the Cologne police made their New Year’s Eve preparations. Drawing on the previous year’s experience, they identified their biggest worry as pickpocketing and fireworks among the crowds. So they increased their holiday deployment, to 142 from 88, concentrating on the banks of the...
