PF is really slow.
It's been horrible. I don't know what's wrong.
It was just a few minutes, wasn't it?
I've been experiencing periods of extreme slow downs for the past couple of days.
hmm we just added a gig of ram today, things should be faster
Yey, i will get you moving, watch out for the tups though.
Even now, now, very now
an old black ram is tupping your white ewe.
Probably not only PF. Sometimes it takes a lot of time here to find any url. But right now indeed PF seems faster.
It hasn't seemed slow to me at all. Maybe there's router maintenance being done somewhere.
It's fine now.
No problems now, but hit some database errors and slowdowns last week. Greg knew about it at the time, and they seem to have been corrected.
slow slow slow
1:55am is DB backup time
That post was 2:55 my time
Greg is an hour behind you.
One thing that I have noticed for a while is that if I click on a thread title or the "New Posts" link quickly, the little "loading" icon in Firefox just sits and spins. If I hold the mouse button for 1/2 second or so, the update usually loads up quite promptly. I anybody else getting this, and is there a fix for it? Other web-sites don't give me this trouble, so it shouldn't be on my end...
very very very very sloooooow. Perhaps because of the new SciAm access scripts.
Several times yesterday, my connection timed out while loading pages on PF. No other sites were doing it to me, so it's not a problem on my end.
That happened to me too, but it was only around about a 30 minute window for me. I can't remember the times though.
Please, do implement a anti spider filter. I'm more than happy to fill in some additional hidden codes to get access to PF and have normal speed page loading time, but this is ridiculous. Everything loads quickly except PF which freezes up all the times.
Actually, I think some of the issues were something Greg has been tinkering with behind the scenes.
For about a month now, I've had troubles only on the PF. Being slow is part of it, but the main problem is that often when I'm on the PF, my firewall program (Outpost) will crash and then the system crashes---just in this last month.
I looked at the 'attacks' to my ports and they were coming from the Physics Forum. Why would the PF site be trying to access different ports on my system? tcp's 1488 and 1489
We may need a new server soon :(
Oh dear; that sounds pretty expensive
I hate server moves! No matter how carefully we pack up everything, the movers always break something or leave something behind at the old server.
