["eventually the whole system gummed up and stopped responding"

Now that's exactly what I've been trying to say, but don't have enough knowledge in technical terms to explain myself.]

OK I didn ‘t see most of Obama’s speech because I was watching the Ohio State-Purdue game. I’d flip over during commercials. I get the impression that Obama was not that impressive. Someone on ABC thought he wasn’t that great and Kirsten Powers on FNC sounded disappointed. Even Krathammer on FNC didn’t like it and he’s been loving Obama lately. I thought Ryan was fine. Juan Williams said the Ryan Roadmap has been ignored by both parties. Is this true? It’s pretty much the most serious approach to cutting spending and dealing with the deficit issue. I thought Bachmann was fine but maybe it was just me but I thought she wasn’t looking straight at the camera but maybe a little to the right of the camera. But I liked what she had to say.

Ended up being a complicated little mess...I disabled DNS lookups on the DB and it seems to be okay now. We’ll see how it goes.

Is this the problem that's been slowing FR down during high-traffic times for the last several months? In other words, do you think you've found THE problem?

Thank you for all of your work, I’m sure it can be quite frustrating. We appreciate it very much, as we’re all a bit addicted to FR ; ) Blessings to you.

I lost my sweet Dachshund 13 months ago and he is still remembered. They will always be with you. Read this:

Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

Author unknown...

Even the loathed Luntz panel could work up no enthusiasm for Obama’s speech. They all thought it was a loser... he had 13 Obama voters and 16 Republicans, I think.

Only 5 of the Obama voters were sure or even thought they would vote for him again.

Yes, that was unfortunate. She doesn’t normally use that much eye makeup! Didn’t keep her from sounding like the most intelligent person of the evening though.

Of course, I missed Ryan’s speech. I imagine it was good, too!

Yes, Ryan was very good as well.

Obama was all over the map with platitudes and hopey dreamy stuff.

His efforts and being succinct landed like cotton balls.
His effort at sounding homespun, and funny were met with silence.

Ans Ned Flanders would say: “He suckdidely ucked, but gosh darn it he sure has a nice smile”.

If my diagnosis is correct, then yes, this was THE problem. Since making the change to the DB configuration just an hour ago we haven’t experienced that issue. Could just be “lucky” but I’m going to say with 90% confidence the issue has been solved.

That's right. The camera thing can be fixed next time. What she said was great. . . and Ryan. . . and Sarah. . and everyone in the Tsunami. . keep it up! We have just begun to fight!

Obama's poll bump over. Downhill from here on out. . .

At the moment, I’m disgusted with our new congressman from TN, Scott DesJarlais. Just saw him on one of the Nashville news channels and he was talking about how Americans want to see all of them work together.
I just whipped off an email to him saying, “No we don’t!!” We want to see them pull out the stops to halt the dems’ agenda in its tracks. If they want something, it sure isn’t for the good of America.

I have the sinking feeling I’m going to be slamming him the next two years as much as I did Lincoln Davis, who got the boot in November. :-(

It was ridiculous...but I expect that our fake president
didn’t like seeing a whole bloc of congress pets sitting
on their hands. Didn’t “look good”.

I am angry that any Republicans fell for the gimmick. Makes
THEM look weak. We don’t need that even when we know some of
them ARE weak!

"If my diagnosis is correct, then yes, this was THE problem."

There is still a problem somewhere. Every since FreeRepublic crashed back on Jan 5th, 6th, I have not been able to access my FreepMail, Pings nor my Preferences.

I would like to know how this can be fixed?

Actually, I think the entire boy/girl/boy/girl seating thing backfired on Ozero.

I thought it would dilute our majority, and it did.
But it REALLY diluted Obama.
I have never seen such a tepid response from the house to a SOTU. The fellow looked weak. This calls for unity looked like a joke.

Glad to hear that. Didn’t watch the speech, just had Terry Moran of Nightline on in the background. He was positively tingling over the speech. It was so CIVIL! He dissed Paul Ryan and Michelle Bachmann as being way too negative in their responses to the kindly Obama, and they better watch that in this new era of CIVILITY. There should have been a barf alert at the beginning of Nightline...

No one liked the guy. He’s out of touch with the American people. He proposed new spending and new programs at a time when millions of Americans are out of work? This failed approach to government didn’t fix the economy over the last two years its been tried.

The establishment is screwed. And we’re supposed to be applaud when this guy calls for socialism? Get real - this was a Max Headroom show tonight!
