Out of the Blue

We've been trying to track down a problem on the web server here that's been causing the site to become non-responsive at times. This is a little mysterious right now, as it comes out of the blue, so to speak, after months of perfect operation, but Frans has been looking into it, so hopefully his detective work will be successful.

For the last two days I've spent more time reading online than at any other time that I can remember. Unfortunately using Internet in Safe Mode leaves me with limited entertainment choices. I need my gaming fix! Sigh

On a unrelated side note I wish I had 2M for that Ferris home. That's choice! Thumbsup

My laptop's video "card" fried on Monday. Dell promptly sending out a service tech to replace the part. I suspect it will be a full motherboard replacement given the GPU chip is mounted on the board.

it seemed to me like it would only happen when the page was trying to load particular ads. could be some peculiarity of opera, though, it's weird about having all objects loaded one at a time.

My ISP was pretty wobbly yesterday, I blamed it on that, but then it cleared up and Blues was still going out. What was even stranger was this page loaded fine every time on my phone

huh, i just thought the network at work was slow yesterday.

It's been having issues since last week. Fri and Sat was the most noticable for me.

Every time I ran in to this issue it was when I was posting on the consolidation threads. I would post a message (would work) then during a return to the thread, or a refresh, it would hang.

Hrph, I was having problems with my Internet from my house yesterday, so when I had problems with Blue's I just automatically assumed it was still an issue with my Cable, Cause Blues Always works. Cheesy

Today seems better. Previously, the page would time out. Yesterday it would eventually load, but it seemed really slow when you first tried to hit the front page...
