So I waited most of the day before posting...
« on: March 27, 2008, 02:03:20 PM »
because I was certain someone would bring it up, but nobody has. Now I'm not so sure I wasn't the only one. I couldn't access the website from yesterday afternoon until this morning. It was a 404 all night. Is that right or was I temp banned?  :laugh2:  Did you guys experience 18 hours of detox?  :???

Like your av, I think the site sneezed and lost its buttons!

Not the software this time... hardware issue is my understanding, but we are aware of the issues...  :smily677:

The host company is suddenly experiencing high load levels on this server. They are working on the problem.  Hopefully its all cleared up sooner than later.

I had trouble logging on last night when I got home from a meeting too....but it was probably just as well as I could use the sleep! 

However, since yesterday I have been having problems with the size/fitting on my screen.  Right now requiring lots of side-to-side scrolling to read posts.  Is that just me?  Should I have my sixteen-year-old-boy-wonder take a look?

Thanks for all the extra work you guys have to do!

Have your boy look at the screen resolution or something else. It is fine on 3 of my PC's. I'm using 1024 x 768 pixels.

What problems are you having?  The board is a fixed width board of 998 pixels so if anyone has a screen resolution of say 800x600 they will need to scroll.  The site is optimized for 1024x768 screen resolution.

Perhaps they don't have a clue what we are talking about? These days, it's best to go with higher screen resolution:

Right-click on Desktop
Select Properties
Click on Settings Tab
Slide that arrow to the higher screen resolution of 1024x768
Click on OK

No I am not having trouble with the resolution, I keep getting a 500 error message.  Sometimes it takes two or three times for me to get on. I just keep trying.  The past hour or so has been ok though.

a 500 error is generally a web server issue.  Probably part and parcel of the issues that the hosting company has been dealing with.

Man you either need a new monitor or a new video card, 1024x768 is your max? 1280x1024 is so much nicer!

I know, but my kitchen machine is 5 years old. We have one of those built-in desk units and the kids were doing homework at kitchen table.  We don't allow for them to have PC's in their room, adult supervision of online activity at all times. No worries, my office has all the bells and whistles.  :yahoo:

Smart move, if/when I have kids, the same rules would be applied.  We did not have a pc in our house until I was 15, didn't get one in my own room until I was 17.
