: Thanks!
I hope this one works...

One suggestion though for the next time, would you please post a clear warning "MDC will be performing updates on such and such date, please go out and purchase withdrawal drugs (or herbal tea... whatever works!)".

Thanks either way....

New endeavor coming soon...

Yeah, I've had some pretty slow randomness today, too. Arrghh. I love my MDC and wish it could work properly!

I am having random slowness, as well. Can you all note the time you have issues with a post here so Cynthia can point it out to the server host and ask them to track down the problem? ITA, this needs fixing.

Other than the fact that threads actually open eventually, there's really no improvement.

The actual errors you are getting is when it hits the maxclients, it's set quite low for the new webserver as we want to have the new database in place first (Which we are hoping will be available tonight/tomorrow).

I haven't had any problems today, other than general slowness of page loading, which could be a problem on my end. I didn't think to check to see if MDC was working until this afternoon.

Seems pretty good now. Have you all seen improvement in page loading since Scott adjusted maxclients?

Things had been working great, then I just got pooed on. Maybe I got a little over zealous in TAO . About 9:30 EST to about 9:37.

I've also been getting the server too busy messages this evening, and all day pages have been loading slowly for me. Several times today I got the "Page cannot be displayed" message from Windows, but only from MDC, not from any other sites. In fact, during the day today, pages were loading more slowly for me and giving me more problems than before the server change!

I've had issues today, but just got on to this thread, so I wasn't keeping track of them. The last one was after 9pm- so maybe a max user issue as that is a popular time to log in (guessing).

hmm, one thing I might be noticing (might, because maybe its me??) is that when I right click on things it is not always working, usually it will open up the link in a new tab, but many times right now these are getting hung up, or not working.

It is working on other sites... but I do use this feature much more often here. Just double checked, and it really seems to 'hang'... will open the tab, but the connection will not connect.
