    Occasional Server Busy Errors

    Moderator note:

    We know the server has been having issues with being busy lately -- it's crawlers from Amazon and Alibaba cloud IPs, that we are trying to block.

    --SR

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    - Herman Göring at the Nuremburg trials (thoughts on democracy)

    Calling them occasional is an understatement - nice to see that our overlords are on the case.

    Thanks, I was wondering about that.
    When did I go from Luke Skywalker to Obi-Wan Kenobi?

    Are others still having this problem? I have a heck of a time getting on here most times. Even when I don't get the "server busy" message it takes an awfully long time to load the site. I'm not complaining, just wondering if there is anything we can do about it on our (the member) end.

    Thanks.

    Yes. It is difficult to replay to posts as well. It seems that the server is just thinking a lot these days...

    I've noticed that the times I can't get on or get's getting really slowed has increased.

    It's getting to be more of an hourly occurrence...

    Indeed - I have gotten the "server is busy" message.

    Is it time for another plus membership fund drive to help our Dear Leader address these server issues ?

    This is really getting bad. At least for me. I'd say probably half the time I try to get on the site I can't at all and then many other times I get to the homepage and then it just spins and spins until it either times out or eventually pulls up the page I want. And when I post something it almost always times out and then I'm left to wonder if it actually posted or not until the next time I'm able to log back in. Anything we can do?

    I'm having trouble getting on more times than not.

    I've also noticed that I will try to post something and it will take forever to load.

    75% of the time, I can't access the site. When I can, It is a rare occasion that it will let me post something.
    If you want different results in your life, you need to do different things than you have done in the past. Change is that simple.
