Seems like most of the time lately I click on the link to come right to the forum, and it takes quite a long time for the site to come up, sometimes ten minutes or more! And quite often I get "page cannot be displayed" or "page not found." I know it's not my internet connection, because I get an excellent signal, and no problem getting to various other websites, they pop right up. Same thing whether I use the wi-fi connection here at the house or my Verizon air card. Other times this site pops right up. Happens way more often than not.

I think it has to do with the server Matt uses, because the other websites he has done (Wade Shows for example), if I try to access them when having trouble getting MCW to pop up, they will not pop up either. It is frankly getting very frustrating. If I am not alone here, I can see why folks are not posting as much as they used to. I can get C arny Town to come up everytime with no problem, but heck, the posts there go for hours before new ones pop up more often than not. Just an example of another site that pops right up with no problems. I have tried different browsers, accessing the internet differntly, same thing happens.

Anyways, I was just curious if anyone else was having the same issues.

It was a little slow earlier tonight, but other than that, it hasn't been too bad.

I have the active topics set as my home page, and have trouble getting it to refresh quite often. I also have a local weather station as well as the river guage set as home pages. Never a problem with them even when I can not get here. It seems to be just a short period of time when it happens-if I go away for 10 minutes it comes back.
Would it help the sys op if some of us were to keep track of date and time when we have problems? I know you guys got more to do then babysit the site 24/7 and I imagine it can take a long time to do all the research to find problems but if I can help I would be happy too.

So do I. I rarely use the home page for MCW. Sometimes the board pops right up, like now, but quite often it seems to take an eternity for me even to get the "page cannot be displayed" message. No, I don't use a Mac (not because I don't like Mac's, I just don't have one).

Rhino, I don't sit for ten minutes and stare at the computer screen, I hide the browser window and do other things on the computer and check to see if MCW has come up.

Oh well, as I can see I am not the only one having issues getting the board to come up.

I noticed the same a couple weeks back, and have already mentioned it to Matt. It appears to be a similar problem to what happened last winter.

Really?? I haven't been having any problems. Maybe it's you computer, you should probably buy a new one.

Really?? Huh. Funny how sweet those Dell's navigate through Matt's. Your HP bogs down every single time I log into here.

Ummmm, really? Huh, maybe you need to keep your stupid comments to yourself. And reread what I originally posted in this topic about other websites and no problems. Jerk.

We have been running a monthly server back up that really bogs down on the server performance among the massive amounts of traffic the server gets. I am looking into some solutions now including a seperate server to help offset the load or possibly the upgrade to another, higher performance server. I will post more updates soon...
