    Problems with the Lounge July 3?

    Not mentioned today so I'll ask: were there problems with the Lounge yesterday? From here it was quite a slow in connection during Sunday, July 2, (no direct problem, I was also a little slow), then no connection at all Monday 3.

    My questions is probably answered, if I do a search for last 2 days posts, there is gap during Monday, but one newer knows.

    There was a technical problem with the Lounge server. It took some 24 hours to solve it, so the Lounge was inaccessible between approximately 2 July 20:00 UTC and 3 July 20:00 UTC. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Thanks Hans. I did some ping & traceroute and it seemed OK, but the browser could not connect. You do not have to say sorry for the inconvenience, it is certainly not your fault and I know that there is hard work solving the problem behind the scene in these cases.

    Have a great day.

    The server itself was up and running (almost) all the time, that's why ping and tracert worked, but some essential software refused to run.

    > but one newer knows.
    I'm not sure if this is a Freudian slip or what (grin!)

    Wednesday noon EST (Toronto, New York) time the lounge is slow again. This may be a precursor to problems.
    Perhaps we should make use of The Lounge's polling device to report grave slowdowns that seem to be the prelude to loss of the system for a day.
    At least then a consensus might warn us to be unalarmed if the system disappears!

    Thanks, we are aware of the problem and investigating ways to improve performance. We can't guarantee anything, unfortunately.

    I echo practically all previously published sentiments when I say that I know that you (collectively) can't, and that you collectively do better than we ought to expect.

    I treat the Lounge failures as similar to those horrible irreproducible "bugs" in programs; until one can predict the occurrence of the problem it's darn difficult to solve it.
    I am thinking that the lounge seems to slow down the day before it crashes, so a slow down might give you (collectively) enough warning to set up the high-speed freeze-frame cameras, zoom lens videos, incantations, wands, and whatever else is in your arsenal.

    Chris,
    I agree with you.

    I too, have noticed a distinct slowdown in the Lounge prior to the loss of access. I thought it was just my thinking that but it is curious to see that others have noticed the same signal being given out. <img src=/S/eileen.gif border=0 alt=eileen width=17 height=15>

    Now I don't know whether to reply to this while I still can (grin),
    or whether to wait a while,
    and then wait a while longer and say "Yes, we were right!"

    I see you made up your mind. He who hesitates is lost, so "they' say.

    Chris,
    "The cartoon was for Argus to revive his flagging spirits!"
    <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15> Thanks, made my evening over here <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>. I have no problem with the England match; they didn't win (2-2). I'm not so into football. (Only when it goes our way ... <img src=/S/hmmn.gif border=0 alt=hmmn width=15 height=15>)

    "I'm not sure if this is a Freudian slip or what"
    Freudian slip? In what sense? <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29>

    As to the Lounge software, only problem I've seen so far is that the new posts count does not always work. Also sometimes when I return to Controls after I've made a post some watched thread may show "new", but there are no new posts in the thread.

    This is a Heads Up alert.

    The Lounge seems to be entering a slow down mode.
    Lets see if there is a crash or access problem soon?

    Testing your theory, Argus.

    It isn't the least bit slow for me at this time, Bob. <img src=/S/nope.gif border=0 alt=nope width=15 height=15> Our Lounge is loading PQ! (That's "pretty quickly" <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15> )
