We need to donate more so they can expand the server farm and get a fatter pipe.

FR is always SO slow on ‘big nights’ that I wonder about a DOS attack..

Nice if JR would comment on what the deal is.

It’s working just fine for me. The clean design of Free Republic means a fast, more responsive source for breaking news and informed opinion. The live thread here was my means of keeping up with the debate since I had no access to either TV or radio tonight.

Maybe posters need to stop posting pictures, baseball scores and complaints about how slow the thread is. Just post what happens.

OK, got it, maybe Jim can post the number of users are registered, then from that number, anyone can can figure out just how much each of those would have contributed as a whole. I would wager it would be a very small number.

Myself, I have $10/mo sent automatically, how much are the rest of you donating? maybe he should have a listing of those who donated only available to those who did so we can call out those who whine and don’t.

Yet again, your hysterical hand-wringing is silly.

Any server cluster in the world can become slow due to traffic and load.

Obviously, you haven't donated enough to FR yet! So, since the problem you're bemoaning is mostly the fault of you and your ilk, why don't you, yet again, make a donation?

I believe Jim said after the first debate that the new servers were bought but not installed yet.

I donate $100 a month to support FreeRepublic.com because I value its clean, commercial free interface. If everyone who complained did the same, then Jim might be able to afford additional servers for the high traffic nights. So if you are’nt a monthy donor, you are getting what you paid for.

night's like this.

Maybe the posters ought to refrain from posting unnecessary apostrophes when pluralizing nouns, and when saying (or thinking they are saying) "its", "your", "there", or "their".

As a test, see how the response slows down when I type the following:

it's you're they're night's

But NO, forget it, that would require a literacy test and for so many here English appears to be a non-native language.

Not necessarily more servers but load balances to even the strain.

FR is never there when you really need it. It’s getting ridiculous. It does make me wonder where my donations go.

I am far from a computer expert. But there are chat room programs that hold thousands of people for instant discussion. Should FR use one of those style rooms, and only open it up for live threads or big disasters like 911? There must be a low cost way for us to communicate in real time.

I look forward to live threads but I guess I shouldn’t bother. Election night, oh how sad that will be. :( even if we win, FR will be down.

In contrast with other live threads, the traffic tonight seemed light, but maybe that was just an indication of not many posts coming through. Still, FR has worked very well with threads of 3000 or more posts.

I couldn’t agree more. Lately, visiting FR is akin to slogging through quicksand. I’m getting sick and tired of the frustration it causes.
