Anybody There !! ....

Postby Laura » Apr 02, 2012 12:46 pm

IF this posts ... and anybody can hear me ....

PLEASE PLEASE fix this gosh darn forum!!!

I could not get on,page would not load,for two days.I figured I had got caught in the "Newsletter" noose that Liz gets caught in.Then I could not post as each time I try this page says something very bad to my brower and it has a fainting spell.

Every other place I go on the net welcomes me with open arms and here I get booted out the door before I get a chance to say anything !

Well I will see you IF and when TPTB will fix this or I can slip throught the glitch without being detected ....until then I will be .... somewhere ... I think.

Hello to everyone and I will see you later .... I HOPE !

P.S. ... I have been trying to post this message for days ...

Amidst a mighty "mid-winter-like" wind storm, today the site actually loads quickly and I can actually get into Post a Reply too.

With luck, I amy be able to Post it as well...before I die of old age.

Glad to see you again, Laura...I have missed you!

And you are right, absolutely...every OTHER site I go to does not hae these problems...it's instant response, every time.

I see you & I can post as well but not for a few days.

It looks the same as the last upgrade a couple years ago, it will take a few more years to iron out the bugs before another "upgrade". I get the impression CG is still using the same bum software & only tried to tweak it. This is the only forum that gives me grief. :x

After I posted, (quickly, too!) I remembered that last week when the federal budget was coming in, the Toronto Star and Globe & Mail sites couldn't be accessed.

Wind gusts now being recorded up at the airport, not down here 200 feet above the ocean, are 85 kmph ..I'm told that wind is stronger, lower down. There is a sky to ocean wall of white cloud at the shore...off to the side I can still see much angry sea with white horses racing towards the shore.

God help anyone at sea today.

MY best guess is that CG is using a server with inadequate bandwidth to handle the online traffic they get. Likely the forum is sharing bandwidth on the
same servers their magazine site is. If there is a lot of traffic on the server , it slows right down , unable to handle it all.. That is how hackers take down sites. By flooding them with connection requests by thousands of computers .
until they fail under the load.
There is nothing wrong with the software CG is using for the site .. There is something wrong with the server or bandwidth allocated to the forum. Can you say getting away cheap ? or just limiting costs.. business decision , and we should be happy they give us a forum at all.

I will move this to Feedback and inform Tara of this thread. Dave is probably correct in his analyzation of the situation. It would be interesting to know what the situation is. I wonder how many others are still having issues getting back on or encountering these types of problems?

I think Dave's analysis is spot on. I mean this one:

Zero issues here.

It could also be a routing issue and a few other things.
