Lag time on Free Republic
6/22/10 | antidemoncrat

Posted on 06/22/2010 6:35:13 PM PDT by antidemoncrat

For the last few days, both my computers started having trouble loading Free Republic pages, sometimes taking several minutes. I've noticed more than usual multiple postings for the same Freepers which tells me they are having the same problems. Has this been a problem with other users or it it just my problem? Thanks

Same problem. The loading was stopped. I unplugged the computer and restarted it. It worked.

I have absolutely noticed major slowdowns too. Perhaps they are doing some kind of maintenance.

Same for me. For about 9 days now.

SPOOKY & suspicious.

Yes, laggy.

I doubt is it my computer or connection, because no other sites I frequent are lagging.

It’s just all the gov’t installed tracking software.

Flush your computer’s DNS cache - and if you’re behind a firewall/router that has a DNS cache, flush that too.

I’ve spent much of my lag time over the years of FR. Since the pages are also ‘laggy’ lately, it’s all good.

I couldn't get FR to load at all for almost 2 days.

Then, sporadically last night and today.

tonight, it seems to be ok.

Same problem. I’ve cleaned the drive, rebooted. I think Jim needs to start posting ads and upgrading the equipment.

The server is always the problem, especially a site as busy as FR. This requires enormous amounts of your money. :)

In several threads early this morning, "jellybean" (class of 1998) mentioned that FR is temporarily down to one server due to equipment failure and the explanation is overload.

I just miss Jim or John reporting to us so we don't kick our computers...

I can’t get on the main link when I Google.....even on my Blackberry. I scrolled down to the ‘activist/forum’ link and it seems to be connecting better. Was VERY slow earlier....but seems to have picked up this eve.

I’ve had trouble the last few days but eventually I’m able to load the link. I assumed it was ongoing maintenance.
I think it was Sat or Sun that all day it was down. I finally got on in the evening for awhile.

Bigtime....and only with FR. Very frustrating.

A tiny bit better this evening, though -- however still a slug.

FR usually goes down within a day of my kicking in....weird.

That isn’t the issue, my testing says it is the server not serving up the pages.

It helped reducing the number of threads returned.

Some kind of performance issue on the server.

Freerepublic could be rewritten to serve pages quicker with less bandwidth. The design is quite outdated now.

Same problems here in central PA. Restarted computer several times and even flushed the DNS cache. It was a drag all last night.
