Great idea to back up access during problem periods.

Does anyone have the access data For Free Republic?
Having it all in one thread would be nice.

Well, ironically enough, I use FD as a fallback site when FR is slow or down.

However, I just stumbled on FD's front page, which mentions that due to a hitcounter error, what they though was 800,000 page views is actually closer to 3,000,000 and they must once again migrate to another server.

Question, in general, for Freepers -

I've been away from FR for a number of years, used to be really active on here,

but it got to be an echo chamber of sorts.

I admit it's a bit sadistic on my part, but I like to slam on leftists, and there just weren't enough here to hunt.

What's it like these days?

Most ardent leftists here can't contain themselves, get nasty, and get quickly zotted. However, it's not necessarily an echo chamber, either, since many right-leaning factions argue with each other all the time.

We do not. Why don't you just shut the hell up if you can't see the truth before your eyes! Wew are all just a bunch of mind numbed bush-bots who have lost the art of debate. < /obvious absurdity>

Actually, there is MUCH disagreement on issues such as the border, the war on drugs, correct grammar and spelling, etc.

By no means an echo chamber, from my perspective at least.

Ann C last night stated it pretty well -

most leftists, unused to having their ideology challenged, are unable to form cogent arguments, and resort to profanity and violence.

I have been here for a couple of years. There are slap downs, heated arguments, and a lot of funny posts and replies.

As for the leftists, there are a few that still care to post.

Hmm...it COULD be fun...it could ALSO spiral into a nasty, vitriolic flame war.


Notice I didn't say those were mutually exclusive.

Is that possible in an "echo chamber?

Well, I suppose finding the resonance frequency of any echo chamber could create an opportunity for some sonic damage. Why don't you start by telling a FR version of "The Aristocrats" joke (throw in all the sacred cows), and see if THAT hits resonance frequency?

I'll just sit back and watch the body count.

I find the "Nuke a gay whale for Christ" statement concise and pretty much universally offensive. An 8.32 out of 10 stars.

I think you can squeeze another point out if you use "Nuke the gay Christian whales for Allah this Holiday Season".

Here's another 'back-up' where in the past Jim and/or John would keep us informed about when FR would be back and what the problems with the board might be.

 Free Dominion is in dire straits -- the past month has been an absolute horror show.  Many of you noticed this morning that Free Dominion was down for awhile... our service provider shut us down... And, we were informed this morning that we have to move by the end of the month.
 To make matters worse, we have been dealing with a computer that is on its last legs.
 The upshot of it all is that we are going to need some help to keep Free Dominion going because we can't afford to do it out of our own pockets this month.

It appears that Freedominion is down tonight. I know they were doing some site maintenance so at least it's not a hacker this time. Here's hoping anyway.

Well, our Sister Site in the Frozen Nawth is down again.

I had just reported a disruptor invasion to The Marshal, so I suspect a hack attack.

All FD members are invited over here.

Glad you dropped by, hope others will come.

Until this site had a number of hardware & software upgrades, we used to groan and creak anytime there was a spike in traffic ( to say nothing of attacks ) so we developed fallback sites.

Mine was ( and is ) Free Dominion, and I spent several elections there when we got overloaded.

I think it got lost in the various crashes, but I posted "An Earthquake just rolled through Georgia," on FD, live-blogging the 2002 election where we tossed the Democrats out of office statewide.

They had dominated offices in the state since the Civil War, but voters finally got fed up with the incessant taxes, corruption, nepotism, gerrymandering, and pretending to be conservative to get votes, then ruling like little Ted Kennedy's.

The good news is, FD is back.

On the down side, nearly all the recent replies are disruptors. I suspect a 'bot... or a very busy kiddie.

Reference:

When I checked in quickly around noon (Alberta time) the site was down so I restarted the server and everything came back up fine. I don't have time today to try to determine/confirm the cause, but as it came right back I expect it was simply too much traffic doing simultaneous high load database queries.

Although I check in here a lot to make sure things are running smoothly, I am not here all the time. So, for the regulars, whenever you notice a site problem and the PM system is unavailable, I would appreciate it if you could send me a quick email at fdmichael@gmail.com so that I can be alerted to the problem and deal with it.

FD was OK a little while ago- they seem to be getting more trolls and disruptors than normal, and the last time they had to ban a bunch of them, they were hacked.
