Why don't these people get their act together?! It is down way too often, and for extended periods of time.

Regardless of the price, I think that if they make a commitment to neurotic pre-meds everywhere they should resolve these ongoing issues. It's like being a primary care doc: You can't be out of the office whenever you feel like it just b/c you're paid less than a radiologist - people are counting on you.

This is the first time in like 3-4 months that I have encountered a server problem with SDN. But then again, I'm only usually on SDN during the day, so I cannot offer comment on the evening/overnight reliability.

I think I only have a minor addiction...but this morning I checked like three times and I thought to myself I bet there is going to be a thread about how people were having withdrawals :laugh: ...but then I realized that I myself was freaking out...accepting is the first step :eek:

You're kidding, right? Maybe you and 30 other people donated, pulling in $600. While every bit helps, that kind of money wouldnt even purchase the ethernet cords that it takes to run a site of this size. It would take an enourmous number of people donating to purchase faster servers.

If everyone who complains about the server problems would donate, then maybe there wouldn't be any more problems!

Hey everyone, this is what Lee has to say about it:

Lee A Burnett said:
Two times in the past 2 days the database-end of the fourms has crapped-out. I'm sure you noticed the 6 hours of downtime this morning.

So, I've brought in some uber-geeks to fix this damned forum.

They've check-out everything and our current tech guys are working with them. We're going to move the forums to one high-powered server, change to OpenBSD for an operating system and do some customization of the PHP coding - specifically in the search script. It's going to cost $120/hour to get it done -- but hopefully once it's done, we'll not have to face these problems anymore! :)

$120/hour ...

Yow.

So, it's being addressed. Be patient, please. :thumbup:

So that's 6 angel donations per hour. Can we scrape it together? I wonder how many hours of work it will be.

Does anyone even realize how much bandwith this site requires?! And on top of that it's free?! How does SDN even stay up and running at all? That is a fare better question than why is it down sometimes!
