Skip to comments.Slow Response on FreeRepublic?
Posted on 06/21/2010 4:19:22 PM PDT by Laserman
FR was out for me on Sunday and now it is responding very slowly except when I select a topic. The main page loads VERY SLOWLY.
Is anyone else experiencing problems with FR? All other internet sites are normal.
Really slow. I just got this 3 hours from now.
Yes, out all yesterday, and today up until about noon ... then VERY slow loading after that ...
The entire internet is slow for me today. What a drag.
Yeah...FR was down most of the morning to mid afternoon..PST on Sunday.. I presumed they were doing site maintenance.
It so slow I’ve cut my finger nails two times already
From JimRob, via the alternate YahooGroup site:
“We usually have two primary web servers running, each having its own IP address. One of them fried and will be down until John repairs or replaces it. We are currently limping along on the single web server.
Someone posted that over time some people have edited their “hosts” file with our IP address. That could be a problem for those who can’t get back in and should be removed.”
Thanks. Good to know I am not alone.
Anyone know how to report things like this to the FR staff?
I cleaned my bathroom and vacuumed my living room waiting for this message to download!!
Hey, maybe its a good thing
(Not really, FR is frustrating slow - no other sites giving me any problems!)
I assure you they are completely aware of the problem.
The main page loads VERY SLOWLY.
Curious........... What do you consider the main page?
Maybe switching to a lesser page will increase the speed....
Site was down on Sunday due to server problems requiring John to construct a box. The first one didn’t work but apparently the 2nd attempt did. Probably not at optimum preformance with this arrangement. Just my guess.
I can’t remember if it was Saturday or Sunday but I couldn’t get on at all.
Everything is back to normal as of now.
Its been down more than a few times for the last few days.
Or so I have been told...
I cleared cache this morning and it’s lickety split again.
I have two PC’s on the internet, logged in to FR.
The old, slow computer is accessing FR quickly, with no delays.
The faster, more powerful computer is logged in to FR, and everything is going reaaaaaaalllllll Sllllooooooowwwwwwww.
I have a feeling that the loss of one of FR’s main servers is causing a congestion via certain trunk lines.
Hit abuse on this thread and they’ll read whatever you put in the abuse report.
Or maybe try:

FR is so slow....
Someone actually scored a goal in a World Cup game during a refresh. ;)
Very slow here as well. I cleaned my computer twice thinking maybe a virus was trying to attach, but FR has been the only site to load slowly.
Don’t care. It’s back, that’s all that matters. Thank you JimRob and JohnRob.
