Why is this site always broken? It’s so simple it could be served off a toaster, and yet there are constant problems with broken pages.

For anybody that doesn’t know, go to account then preferences and set results per page and messages per page to 20.

Works well in the interem.

I tried adjusting my settings. It didn’t work. I can only get about 7 and 1/2 articles per page.

Thanks for the tip tho! Didn’t know I had those abilities.

Drudge has nothing to do with it. This is the usual, substandard FR code at fault.

These are the settings I normally use and the problem happens with me as well.

I’m just glad we have it ...: )

Might want to run traceroute on the server to see if’s being redirected to oneanddone.net. Thats a server located a few miles from the Bluffdate station we all know and love.

I'm trying to post a reply to a thread from yesterday and keep getting this message:

Always is always. Yes, the problem has been a little more frequent the last few weeks, but I can count on both hands the times that FR has been down (I don't consider no sidebar down) in the nine years that I have been a member.

It seems both FR & DRUDGE are being hit.

Sounds like hackers to me. Not internal inadequacies.

Sorry, but that’s a ridiculous statement. You can’t say whether it’s a DoS attack or not without looking at the logs. Besides, if it was “hackers,” as you say, how would setting the number of results to twenty fix it?

This is broken code. Sorry.

Probably, too many fake conservatives who never contribute to Free Republic like the illegals in America, they complain about.

If you can’t afford $5/month don’t use Free Republic until you can afford $5/month.

I set my configuration to see no sidebars and 20 posts per page and left it there a year ago. I am immune from “the glitch.”

Recently I was reading the Freepathon thread. One person stated that she does not donate, but she urged everyone else to do it because she enjoys the site.

Amazing. That is why Freepathons take two months to complete.

You spelled wong wrong. It is the "r" thingy which makes problem. Too many Spanish speakers, rolling their "r's", pronouncing many in rapid succession, have led to there being a shortage on the other side of the planet.

Pe*haps I'll begin *educing my own usage of "*" to help out, by using this "*" as substitute, kind-of like making ce*tain to eat all the food on my plate, to aid the sta*ving child*en, just diffe*ent.

With all the money thats being taken in. It does not make sense that this site has so many problems. The same kind of software has been running forever here. Perhaps its time to affect an upgrade? Both in software and in hardware. Surely there is something better.

This happens during every Freepathon. The site always has glitches during fundraisers.

“Recently I was reading the Freepathon thread. One person stated that she does not donate, but she urged everyone else to do it because she enjoys the site.

Many say “I can’t afford it.” Well have a garage/yard sale twice a year and raise 60$’ each time and pay for their use of Free Republic by having a yard sale twice a year.

How many of us have too many nice items in our home we don’t need. Put them in a consignment store and use that money from their sale, for a donation to Free Republic.

Donate some good things to Salvation Army and use that tax deduction to pay for using Free Republic.

If you are a Starbuck’s addict, stop going once a week and use the saved money for a Free Republic donation. Better yet buy your coffee at a Super Market on sale and don’t go liberal Starbucks and support their gay liberal agendas.

There are hundreds of ways to save a few bucks each week/month to pay for one’s fair share to use Free Republic.

Anyone who can’t figure out how to save $5 per month, probably isn’t a conservative and needs Obozo’s support to live in this world. They should be going to DU for their entertainment and postings.

It seems always to happen during fundraising season. Wonder if something’s going on with the code that’s added during that period? I don’t notice it any other time.

Anyone who does not donate has no right to complain. This website is not an entitlement.

The weekends are when the NSA and CIA adjust their technical equipment to ensure they don't miss anything here on the FR.

(I wish I could add a "sarcasm" tag, but sadly since the foreign usurper has abrogated The Constitution with e blessings of congress and the courts, this is probably true.)

It’s completely ridiculous. A site like this could be hosted for much less money. Flame away all you want—it’s the truth, and you know it. Not diminishing Mr. Robinson’s great work, just saying that the hard-won donations could stretch much, much farther than they do.

Then lock it down to paying customers only, and you will be 100% assured of comments only coming from donors. You will also no longer have a vibrant online community, just a digital ghost town.
