Ah ha, shall we take up a collection for a quicker server?  I need to go and troll the library sale table for more BIBE books to sell on EBAY.

That agrees with what I am experiencing, when it times out I get "waiting on bigbendchat.com" at the bottom of my browser screen (Firefox on this machine). When it is working, within a second or two I get "transferring data from bigbendchat.com."

It is working muy rapido right now.

Tentative solution:  kick Shane off the board and delete all his posts;  the rest of us should be good until the end of '08.

well, short of kicking people off the board, the only real solution is to get a dedicated server...that costs money, so I'm in the process of looking for an affordable solution.  Since the current server support staff is being evasive about this problem, I doubt we'll be on this server much longer.

First time in about 18 hours I was able to get on.  All but one logon in the last 3-4 days has required me signing in again.

David, I doubt seriously the traffic to your site is causing an overload.  It's got to be other problems with the server or other activities being conducted on the same server overloading it.  I'm  sure at this point most of your traffic has "given up" and is waiting for the problem to be cured.

please refresh my memory if this is already posted, or common knowledge...

do you have a PayPal account where you accept donations?

I won't pretend to speak for others, but this site has easily given me hundreds of dollars worth of advice, entertainment & satisfaction since I discovered it.

I don't have hundreds of dollars to donate, however  :cry: , but I can certainly swing $10 or $20...

How many regularly contributing members do you have?  100? 200?  Take that number & multiply by 10?  15?  20?

Would that solve the problem?

I also know nothing about servers et al, but I agree with Al that traffic & Shane must have nothing to do with it.  Seems like one day (over the weekend maybe?) these problems started & they haven't been solved since.  Either can't get on and/or ludicrously slow and/or have to sign in again.  And I've been trying at lo-traffic times like 1am etc...

ok...

umm, duh -- found the "BBC Needs You!" link right on the front page [go figure]

But, I don't know, maybe that should be bigger, or in vibrant purple or something!

Anyway, my small contribution won't solve the problem by itself, but maybe we can get a contribution trend going here...

it's not traffic to this site that is causing problems,it's traffic from other sites that aren't my own....more importantly, traffic to other site's database as they are shared....hence, the need for a dedicated server which would be solely used by this site only.....costs a lot more money...it'll happen, just not sure when yet
