    Lounge Overloaded?

    Just recently I have been getting a Black and White page stating something like Woody's is overloaded. It has just happened but there were only 11 regulars logged in and 6 anonymous users. Is this just a network glitch or is something you should be aware of?

    Re: Lounge Overloaded?

    Sorry, I'm not harrasing you... or following you around <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>. The lounge is fairly quiet...and I'm just reponding to any new posts that pop up!

    Anyways...I have not had any hassles with the lounge! Must be a network / ISP glitch on your side!

    Re: Lounge Overloaded?

    It was probably a pangramic deluge overload. Our server isn't designed to handle that many pangrams at once. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Seriously, these glitches happen from time to time. If you get the "Lounge Overloaded" screen only once, there is nothing to worry about, just ignore it. If you keep on getting it, you'll have to wait a bit until an Admin has intervened and the dust has settled down.

    Re: Lounge Overloaded?

    I think (but I'm not sure) I remember seeing Claude say something recently that he "redesigned" the previous "404" page that would pop up when there's a momentary problem with the server. As Hans said, it's usually a short duration problem where there might be any number of glitches in the server. Rest assured that if it's more than a short duration problem, that one of the Admins will kick-start the server or one of the Mods will be contacting the powers that be...

    Thanks Al

    As long as the Lounge is working and I can get my fix for the day, I am happy. We have just learnt a very important lesson and maybe the other Loungers should be aware that if we get too carried away with a "Joke" and upload a big file it can temporarily upset Lex <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>

    I'm assuming that the "big file" was the one referenced at the head of the thread. FMOI, how big was the file? I thought we had a limit of 100KB.

    Re: Lounge Overloaded?

    I was in a long meeting at work, and by the time I got back to my PC, the Lounge was up and running again. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    I see, using the "I was in a long meeting at work" excuse again eh? <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    Just worrying unnecessarily I suppose
