Anyone else find FR to be really screwed this weekend?

Posted on 06/19/2011 8:27:35 PM PDT by Spartan79

How about a post from FR on what the h**l is going on. Page loads are erratic and more often than not fail. How long until we can expect resumption of normal service? What gives. (I've seen several comments to posts also complaining about problems. I'm not having problems with any other sites, just Free Republic.)

Yeah almost every click brings up the ‘Service Temporarily Unavailable’ page and then you usually have to click the ‘refresh’ button once, twice, or five times before you get anywhere. It’s a pain in the rear-end, but I am presuming that John or somebody is working on the FR software?

Not to worry. FR was just installing its new server...

Same here. Love your tag line, by the way. The whole “born in Kenya” nonsense was missdirection. Obama was born in Hawaii; he’s just not a natural-born citizen, and the belatedly released birth certificate simply proves the point.

It’s not just FR. Netflix.com is having problems too....

I’ve noticed some other sites with issues as well.

Yes. Not slow. Not down. But it keeps sending out that Service Temporarily not Available notice.

Something is up. Maintenance, overcrowding, hacker attack, whatever.

When FR seems to be having problems, I usually visit Yahoo! FreeRepublic2. (Yahoo FR 1 was kidnapped.) There is often a discussion there if the site is down, and sometimes an explanation from Jim or John.

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/freerepublic2/

This seems to be a little different tonight. Refresh a few times and that can get through, but probably also overloads the site even more. And if you aren’t careful, it can produce multiple replies.

Yarp. It's frustrating, all right. Haven't heard if it's a denial of service attack, some sort of bandwidth issue, or what. Maybe they're just mucking the stalls at the ol' server farm. Nothing I'll get overly-torqued about this late on a Sunday evening.

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

Why yes, I certainly do!
Seems 90% of the posts are on a thread concerning "Anyone else find FR to be really screwed this weekend?".

Odd :^)

not just FR - can’t get into NETFLIX either - we under cyber attack? Solar Flare? (this is the message I get on NETFLIX)

“We are sorry, the Netflix website and the ability to instantly watch movies are both temporarily unavailable.
Our engineers are working hard to bring the site and ability to watch instantly back up as soon as possible.”

“Service Temporarily Available - error messages

The Dems are finally seeking answers to ‘what the heck is that guy doin’ to us over there in the White House’ and there is over capacity, because lets face it, the answers on here.

Other than that, it’s nice to know I’m not the only one freepin’ out.
