Town Hall debate.
Admin Moderator notes: (We changed the main link to C-SPAN from You Tube as it is more reliable.)
The debate can also be watched at these links:
Places to watch the debate:
Hot Air was good for me during the VP’s
pre-debate hotel ?
Yeah, Obama won. And it hasn’t even started yet!
I’m hoping that Romney comes out of this debate just holding his own. Since Obama was so miserable in the first debate, he will probably pick up a couple of points with even a mediocre performance.
I am looking for Romney to really shine, though, in the last debate on foreign policy.
Hey Onyx, long time. My nerves are shot. Need a pep talk. Can’t help but think that this is make or break time.
That is just too Funny! They both look so wrong
friend in Sanford felt it pretty good and said it really scared her cat!
Check with John about the DB schema before you try that. Depending on how it is organized, more threads may make it worse.
If it is a lock contention problem, then you need to look deeper into the database performance statistics, and especially the I/O (reads/sec and writes/sec) on the database device.
If it is indeed I/O contention, one thing that would help a great deal is:
[imagine Keanu/Neo's voice]
RAM. Lots of RAM.
If the database isn't using it, the O/S will use it for file caching. Any I/O operation that is avoided will be performed much faster -- as in orders of magnitude.
It isn't unusually for me to see database servers with 64GB of RAM. It makes a huge difference.
Would putting the Freepathon on hold for a short while help a tad?
(I don’t like asking this question)
I’m about 15 minutes from there too
Well, gonna try to watch the debate here! Prolly no luck though! Hey, young lady!!!
Crowley and CNN have also preselected the people from the audience that get to ask questions.
Yep, I knew I really wouldn’t be able to tolerate the Obama-Romney debates. But I did expect the Ryan-Biden one to be well worth catching. However, after a few short minutes of that jackass Biden, I just had to turn it off. Literally finding I can’t stomach any of that crap anymore. And it goes double for all the news-punditry that follows. The more I see of it, from the slickster politician spin-meisters to the snotty media talking-head elites, the more hatred I feel towards them all, along with the whole current culture and state of affairs.
It doesn't have any effect on the FR servers. Those are loaded from the source, either the original one or wherever the poster uploaded them.
Your page rendering might be delayed a bit if you have a slow connection to the Internet. But, the part from FR is only a few lines of text.
PRAY FOR MITT RIGHT NOW
“Crowley and CNN have also preselected the people from the audience that get to ask questions.”
And provided them cue cards no doubt....
Yeah, because the msm had started the mantra that Crowley was being treated in a sexist way. Apparently, it s sexist that her job was just to hold the microphone and look pretty.
Irrelevant .. pics are hosted off-site
Thanks to all you guys and gals who have the courage, and stomach, to watch/listen to this and report on it! I just cannot hear the Faculty Lounge Lizard’s voice without going crazy. If you add the biased, leftist Goodyear blimp to the equation, I doubt that my tv would survive the night. Here’s to praying that Mitt wipes the floor with Candy Gram and the Kenyan. I have confidence in him!
I can tell it is getting closer to debate time, because FR is slowing down.
“Apparently, it s sexist that her job was just to hold the microphone and look pretty.”
Oh my. You don’t need to worry about the second part. She gives helen thomas a run for her money.
Sanford is pretty close to “on top” of the quake. One of the dogs here was barking. The cats were preoccupied eating. I was about 10 seconds from a hyper-alert state ;-) You know, where you run in circles, scream and shout?
You can pretty much guarantee that the people in the audience are liberal plants..you can tell right away by the questions they ask. Crowley knows that she has to do ANYTHING she can do to help Obama so she will make sure the people asking the questions are leftists
Hey, sweet you, sofaman! You’re right, LTNS! We must change that the next time I’m in your neck of the woods!
Romney is MUCH smarter than the Marxist and he can be ruthless! The Marxist is a mumbler without his teleprompter. He can filibuster, but there is a time clock. Let the Marxist go snarky and mean. That won’t play well with women or Americans who still think he’s “nice.”
Romney won’t permit him to get away with his lies. That Candy Crowley can only do so much lapdogging for the Marxist, before Romney pulls a Newt by taking her to task.
Please remember that Romney’s lifetime ambition is to be POTUS. I could be wrong, but I don’t see Romney ceding anything tonight. He’s in it to win it.
SO GOOD to talk to you! I miss ya, too!
Welcome! FReepers are a fun group!
We lift up Mitt Romney in prayer that You guide his heart, thoughts, mind and tongue and that he will prevail in this debate and the next. We pray that people can see that this is a battle between good and evil and they know which one is on Your side. Please have mercy on this county and its people.
In Jesus’ Precious Name, Amen.
I feel like it is the night of a Duke-Carolina game, I am pumped up!
i agree in the name of Jesus....praise the Lord and amen !
My love and hugs to P and you of course!
I am praying and hoping he destroys the Marxist tonight.
We’ve had enough of him and dangerous his evil regime!
I’ll gag if there’s a pony-tail guy asking another idiot nanny state, daddy big government question.
Look out, there is another debate left and I’ll open a thread “about it” 6, no 12 hours before it starts. Or maybe ever 24! (You know why the quotes, doncha?)
May your replies be posted with lightning speed all night!
Have fun, everybody!
No red power tie. He looks relaxed.
Praying for Romney.
I know, my heart is in my throat. Feel like Felix Baumgartner on the edge of that capsule. We are so hosed if zero is re elected. All I can do is pray about it :)
Can’t watch it! Bama’s voice pegs my blood pressure, and trips a mental circuit breaker. Will count on reports here.
Close - NYY v. Detroit ;-)
To the prayerers: if your prayers come true this evening, would you be so kind as to pray for my gal to come back?! Thank you in advance.
....and LORD as we pray for Mitt , we ask that You grant our hearts desire and reveal the truth about Obama’s lies and dishonesty to the nation tonight. May he be caught in his own web of untruths.
May YOU receive glory and honor when the debate is over.
In The Name above all Names, Jesus Our Lord,
I won’t watch it either. Can’t stand to listen to the empty chair drone on and on. Why i get my information about the debate here.
I predicted first debate that this would be the case,still in shock I was wrong..Not sure what happened, think they were just bored?
Normally msm say their guy won no matter what. My liberal brother says it proved my whole theory wrong because msm told the truth....will never happen again
That’s what the libs in the msm were saying.
