It seems as though connection problems to FR are becoming more and more common as of late.

Beyond frustrating!

It’s been like this for a while now. It loads very slow. I’ve wondered if tonight is is due to many lurkers reading the posts on Rep. Giffords.

FR has become like the old friend that keeps messing up. You wonder how much longer you can stand the behavior.

More like something is “down” at FR. *again*

I love this website but it’s performance has become an embarrassment.

I guess they were waiting until I made my donation...it should speed up now. Not enough for another hamster but enough for hamster litter...let’s see if it speeds up now.

Hello, here from Indiana. It has been slow all day. I have barely managed to post and or read a reply. There are several people I would like to thank and reply to but it is too tortuous.

I am!!!!!There was one day this week I couldn't even get in. It's been extremly slow the last two or three days. I was going to donate my dues but got so disgusted I decided to wait. Got to hand it to DU, they are never slow. I know, I know, I just go there to see what Bush is being blamed for that day.

Ditto-same problem here.
Probably the reason for so many duplicate and triplicate posts. Frustration waiting for the reply to post. Hope this turns out to be a single reply.

Obama could sprout horns and declare he “is the antiChrist” and we would be unable to document it on FR.

Just today we narrowly got this Giffords maniac documented as a liberal before they scrubbed the web of his postings.

It is beyond frustrating. It has become the norm.
I recall when this was a fast paced website.

FR has been having performance issues for about the last month.

I think the extra attention due to the situation in Tuscon is making it even worse.

Kind of too bad, since the Left is trying to make it seem that the whacko is a Tea Party guy when the objective facts make it clear he is a Left-wing commie who wanted revenge for the Congresswoman voting against his left-wing agenda.

I hope John gets it going back to normal mode soon.

And that reminds me — time to donate (and JR has NEVER held performance as an incentive!).

Yes, it's frustrating, but as always, the problems are being addressed as always!
John is working as fast and thoroughly as he can. Please bear with us.
We all hate it, too. Trust me, our FReepathon lags when the forum lags!!!

Last night, Jim wrote,

I have no idea. Last time it was a problem in the database. The time before that a server fried. More than once its been DOS attacks. This one looks like some sort of logjam.

Im sure John will get it cleared up eventually, but this is a huge complex multi-server, multi-user system with lots of hardware and software that all has to mesh perfectly to work at maximum performance levels.

Somethings always going to snap. Never know when or what or if its natural or DOS. Lots of people hate us and would love to see us go belly-up.

War is hell. So are computer systems. If it can go wrong it will.





FREEPERS ROCK!!!

WE ARE STILL ONLINE!!!

Its slow at my home connection, and sometimes at the office.
No other websites are slow (home or office),
so it must be server related.
I’m running mozilla and usually have 6 or 8 web pages open.
All others respond quickly, not free republic.
Bummer.....

It's not slow. What word works best for slower than slow?

Is FR back on the 2400 baud modems?

It's been like this on and off since just before the elections. Election night was horrible.

I love Free Republic and have been a monthly donor for a long time. I'm getting very frustrated with the unreliability and started going to other websites to get breaking news. You can't get it here anymore.

I don’t wish to harp on this, but I could be 5 counties away before a zot landed, LoL

BTW thanks again for the venison sausage.
I could not eat it all so I took one into work.
There are some very thankful Texans rubbing their bellys.
They all said it was the best they had ever tasted.

FR has been having performance issues for about the last month.

Try since last June...this is unacceptable, IMO. I love FR, and have been here for over a decade. I'm also aware that FR has grown amazingly over this period - but also aware that each FReepathon has upped the ante by several thousand zops each and every quarter for the last several quarters, and I've kicked in.

More than a few of us are a bit 'wondering' about priorities with these increased budgets...a working website, one would think, would be number one, and apparently it isn't.

Something has been up with FR for about six months. I have figured that there are some hackers connected with more liberal sites make it a point of honor to mess with this site as much as possible. There don’t seem to be as many users as before, so maybe the server is bogged down with malware.

Seemed like the problems started the other day, (immediately) following Duncan Hunter’s online live interview thread.

Almost to the minute.

I figured it’s Chicom hackers, trying to keep people from reading what Congressman Hunter had to say about trade policy, and China.

It is well documented that these “performance issues” have plagued this forum for years in spite of the hundreds and hundreds of thousands of dollars that folks like yourself have “kicked in”. I used to think it was a coincidence that these performance issues walked hand in hand with the FReepathons, but I’d have to be a complete and utter fool to not see the connection; pardon the pun.

I have dial up, always slow, a person has to learn to live with it...

#1 put in a Toby Keith CD

#2 play free cell while its loading, after a couple of games its loaded. Free Cell takes concentration so you don't mind the wait...

#3 Clean house while waiting....patience is a virtue

#4 Your right, FR though slow is still up...:O)
