Skip to comments.FR has new load shedding feature?
Posted on 08/17/2013 10:46:34 AM PDT by Paladin2
So the fix to not filling page requests is near infinite response times on reading postings, posting response and some other features is to drag them out?
Not much of an improvement.
Well, you could buy your own servers and program them better.
I guess that might be a better solution.
Whining is not usually a good solution.
I’m getting 1 second response times when I click to read a post....
Works fine for me.
Likely you picked up some malware while surfing porn.
A good system always has a graceful failure mode.
It’s only Freeperthon tactics to teach us to fall in line...and it always gets “fixed”.
Even Ray Charles can see through these tactics...and he’s blind and dead!
I suspect it's all teh time I've been spending at the "Let's elect Bammy for a third Term" websites I've been visiting.
Or it could be today's "update" to Firefox.
I’m just grateful FR is here.
Posting to myself is not as much fun.
Looks like a re-reboot fixed it (though other websites were working fine).
"..that's a pretty handy thing to have...thanks"
I have no problems loading up pages so it must be something on your end -you are running the 'Doze OS, of course! Malware or Adware should be the immediate suspect.
That or M$ has another security "feature" that has just been discovered, and after about a month after Linuxgeeks have figured out the vulnerability and issued an unacknowledged patch for it they might or might not include it in their latest "security upgrade". Said issued-by-M$ upgrades not guaranteed not to crash your system, of course.
Pages were loading fine. Just not ancillary features like "reply" which were nearly infinite compared to my patience for loading.
Interesting link. Must play with again later. Thanks!
S’truth. No River Murries on this end!
Too late to test that "fix" now.
No problem for me posting replies.
If it works for some users and not others, it’s almost certainly an issue with the slow user’s PC, browser, etc.
Since so many people have “issues” with their computers these days due to the junkiness of the design of the web and M$ Windows, it’s even more likely that the issues are on the client side and not on the server (more so than typical IT support issue resolution experience, where the trouble often has to do with something the user did; if it’s something “IT” did or a problem on a server, every user has the same problem).
The user’s browser should be configured to allow caching of objects, but to empty the cache when you close your browser, etc., that is, have your browser not infected with all sorts of junk, be viewing a malware website in another window while you’re posting to FR, etc.
FR all by itself chugs along fine.
I believe it was a recent hardware upgrade that made it now perform very acceptably as long as the user has a reasonable internet connection and machine.
