The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later.

Dear Jim,

May I suggest that you run a special FReepathon for the $$$ needed to keep FR on line reliably?

Sincerely, Otter

No - Jim explained that new servers was the reason that he raised the quota for the first two quarters....he indicated that those numbers would suffice.

If this is how the new servers perform, then Jim needs to ask for a refund.

I sure hope they are in before the Tampa and Charlotte conventions, let alone November, or it’s going to be really ugly. This place has needed a server upgrade for a number of years. Hardware has advanced a *lot* since the last one. Procs and SSDs make things a whole new ball game.

Pings to a couple techies.

Well we still have Sundays, but most of us head into the cannibal community for voodoo worship and snacks.

I concur.

There have been a few threads on this in the last year or so, some with participation by the Big Guy. I hate to say it, because FR has been great, and I’ve been here a long time (and lurked for a long time before my sign up), but if a decent conservative political forum with proper threaded discussion software made an appearance, I would be likely to jump ship, simply because the UX here has become pretty unacceptable by 2012 standards. This isn’t the dial-up era any longer.

The colors are flowing from the wall to the floorAnd only an outline still remains
Cause the roof’s got a hole in it And everything’s been ruined by the rain.
There may be diamonds in that dream on the hill, But the people who live there still complain.
Cause the roof’s got a hole in it,and everything is soaking in the rain.
No one can practice the common sense that they see.
Through the nickle and diming I’ll explain.
When the roof’s got a hole in it,Everything gets ruined by the rainMy head’s got a hole in itAnd everything’s been ruined by the rain.

I have be a monthy donor since I signed up

But I noticed about 6 months ago that the automatic deposits stopped.

The service was so crappy I did not go out of my way to call attention too it
.
Anyhow, now I have $10 a month extra in my pocket and FR is what it is.

I don’t wish to be zotted but I have to speak my mind.

Dearest shove-it and y'all

Don't ya know, we plan these during FReepathons and on Sunday's to remind y'all to get yourselves to Church. /s

Seriously, during our First Quarter FReepathon, an extra $6K was raised toward the purchase of new equipment, but there was so much complaining about the added amount, that IIRC, Jim decided to go ahead and have John look into the new equipment purchases anyway and put the remaining costs on credit, charging it to expenses.

Hang in here with us and help us complete our Third Quarter FReepathon, which is for current expenses.

Thanks very much, everyone!
