Ok, so the glitch is back. Seems to be hitting on weekends.
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.
Drudge is also messed up with “Not Responding”.
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.
Thanks for the reminder! It works for me BTTT:)
Drudge has nothing to do with it. This is the usual, substandard FR code at fault.
I was changing the wrong setting. It DID work!
Many thanks again!!
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.
Ha when I saw the title ‘Danger Zone’ from Top Gun came to mind
the glitch is back. I can glitch I can glitch cuz I’m better than you. It’s the way that you move; the things that do.
down with the glitch!
uh, this is always suggested, like it’s our fault
I get 7 threads to display
An error occurred. Sorry, the page you are looking for is currently unavailable.
Please try again later.
If you are the system administrator of this resource then you should check the error log for details.
Faithfully yours, nginx.
It seems both FR & DRUDGE are being hit.
Sounds like hackers to me. Not internal inadequacies.
Now I haz 10 threads
Maybe I get up to 20 with new topics?
but sum ting still wrong
Ditto that - definitely internal
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.
Needs to be glitch-slapped.
I won’t complain about a site that does not force me to endure a single ad....
What would it take to improve the substandard code?
Unless you are a donor, in which case it might be nice to know that your $300k went to site support...
I couldn’t say without looking at it; however, Jim’s having a competent software developer take a look would be a good start.
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.
Yeah but you're an alien.
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.”
This also works quite well for me.
I absolutely love the guitar work by Davey Johnstone on that track.
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.

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.
Yup. “The Frug” has reared its ugly head again!
Well... Guess I’m gonna’ hafta’ ease the throttle back down to 20 mph, again...
Often attempted. Never successful.
What, a text-only site has never been successfully hosted? Are you being serious, or did you forget the sarcasm tag?
I am talking about many attempts to “do it better” than Free Republic.
I am just talking about the technology, not the content. I don’t care if it’s about conservative issues or cat videos—it should NOT be having these problems.
And this is not a complaint just an observation.
