    We are running on a new server!

    The last few weeks have been a royal pain as the old server bounced over and over and over.

    I have now migrated the forum to a new server with double the memory and a much faster CPU.

    I suspect there will be issues we will need to address and as you notice them, please post them here.

    Thanks in advance for helping us make this move as painless as possible.

    You are clearly "The Man", John.

    It's great to be here.

    Are you still in law school?

    Thanks!

    I am done. I took the Bar Exam in July and will hopefully get the results around October 15th. Hopefully I will not need to retake in February.

    John, seems to be logging me off if I try to open multiple tabs. I am not savvy so could be my end, but second or third night in a row.

    Thanks for the site!

    John,

    FYI - Although the forum was initially quite quick, it has slowed down notably since then - I would say that it is now not only slower, but also at time I've gotten a 404 or similar (cannot load) error.

    Hi John,

    Hope things are running smoother for ya'll. I keep getting the verification thing before I can read or post. If you recall I live in Ukraine so the foreign server likely pops a flag up. Do we need to re-white list my IP again? 95.135.103.236

    Response time over the last forty minutes has been VERY slow. Could be the system is running a backup, but done right, that should slow it down to no less than 85% of normal. Things are currently around 40% or less of normal throughput.

    Clicking on the symbol for "go to last post" brings up the first post without text, and no other posts from the thread.

    Hej John!

    Hope this posts. I have tried to post a couple replys today...fails to post, Explorer comes back the bad connection screen. 2.7 ghz AMD Athalon, Windows XP, IE 7, Verizon 4G hot spot (off a 3G tower) at 3 bars. Still should transfer at 760k..link between hot spot and computer at 54 meg. Max transfer rate to OCDO 24k, average transfer rate closer to OCDO about 3k,

    Hope you are not having "Sandy" problems.

    Details!

    I'd like to know the details behind your new server, John, as the forum just flat out zips! I have a far smaller forum, and it's performance is adequate, but I wouldn't mind bumping it up a bit.

    Kudos' on the new server.

    Slight issue tho.....at least on my end.

    Slow.....MAJOR slow, both loading the site itself and loading posts. Like dial-up slow, For at least a good month now. And a new issue today, which prompted this post. When I click a topic, I have several times got a grey screen that says something to the effect of.....site cannot be found.

    I click back to the main page and try it again and it comes up. But again, major slow.

    Don't have issues on other sites/forums so I am guessing it's a server thing?

    I'm getting it too. But, I'm also getting very slow operation on nevadashooters.com and philcoradio.com

    Acts like DOS attacks on many boards.

    I have been getting that for two days now, Its a round circle with an (!) exclamation point in it, saying cannot connect to the server.

    When I get it, I can go to the www.opencarry.org main page, and it loads just fine, but when I try to click on Forums, it takes forever and then I get that screen. It was happening intermittently all day yesterday, last night, and again today.

    I'm having the same problem with slowness. I really don't mind slowness; what I mind is the inconsistency. When its slow, and I don't know it, I click again and get the "wait ten seconds" between searches message or double-post or whatever.

    I also started getting the "can't access website" message today. At first I figured it was because of the volume of users. We hit an all time high today because of the elementary school shooting and still had 1K users viewing just a few minutes ago.

    I wonder if the prior slowness has anything to do with "googleads double-click net"--my history is just a mass of those in regards to this forum. And, the back -button is pretty spotty as to workability.

    Or, maybe all the ads. Or, one ad in particular?
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. (Because that is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--for each other and everybody else--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.)

    Equality and consent of the governed: We're all equal. How can another legitimately govern me without my express consent?

    Same here for about the last week. Also started getting the same "unavailable" message as others today and took 7-8 tries to sign in before I didn't get that message and was signed in.

    Extremely slow. Sometimes it will allow me to access the site and other times it says "web-site unavailable." When I am able to access, certain pictures and banners have an "X" in their place.

    Just thought I'd pass this along.
