I'm sorry if it was construed that way.


I t hought that might be it, Kalina, don't worry. I really only meant to tease you a little. Guess I should have been more clear on that too.

I forgot to come back and mention, but I did get to the site for an hour and a half yesterday. Left voluntarily so I could visit my other regular sites.

hmmm...

Seems to be harder to catch the open windows this time, too.

Could they be doing the move back to the old servers?

Thanks, Cheryl.

And that's okay Greenrider Tresa... I'm more than a bit sensitive and worried about offending others lately. *sighs at self*

Anyway... you know, I'm actually starting to like it here more, too! SO much more peaceful it seems like. And I love the chat... I can actually get in!!

I love it here, especially since all my favorite KTers are posting here now. I'd have to say, the chat might just be better than Spam. No 24-second rule.

Talk about good things coming out of bad things, eh?

Of course, part of my attachment to this forum could be that it was the first message board I've ever been a part of, and it has a homely feel to it, a sort of familiarity.

But that doesn't mean I don't miss the KT, but at least there are other places on the web that I love equally or more.

And depending on how that upgrade does, the hosting site was talking about relocating them back to the old server, which might have whatever DNS/rerouting fires that caused many of us to have problems get fanned back to life.

We'll just have to be patient about it, as there not much our Hosties can really do about it other than report the problems that we're having after the company is finished screwing with the servers....

I got in for fifteen minutes yesterday and managed to do some Posting. THEN when I tried to get into Chat, something went wonky and completely froze up my Browser! After I Rebooted, I couldn't get back in.

I'll join that dance. After all, I've been kicked out as long as you have.

But then, I feel like WeWoKa has, all sluggish and stuff. If I do get on the internet, my brain is too mushy to form a legible post half the time. *sigh*

In the meantime... I'm gonna go explore THIS wonderful site.

The biggest threat to AMCF? Newer Members, and some older ones, just giving up on the site out of sheer disgust and/or frustration!

The biggest annoyance for me? The fact I'm still getting Post Notification E-Mails, but I CAN'T GET IN!!!!

It's much worse for me now....

I can occassionally get directly in (that is, not using the anonymous proxies), but only long enought to glance at a couple pages now.

I'm either hitting the end of the "windows of opportunity" more frequently or they've gotten A LOT SMALLER ! (I have reason to suspect the later)

I think the main thing I miss is my critters, especially since I was holding a hatching

I was going to try from my friend's house yesterday but there were RL issues to deal with so no computer time.

Woot!

I've found a new way in!

Mozilla failed me, so I turned back the clock and am now happily reading AMCF via...

Lynx!

Ah, it's like I'm back in the 90's again... wasting time on-line from a dinky VT100. Oh, the nostalgia!

The webhost intends to keep us on the non-production server until we can get our CPU resource percentage down to less than 1%.

I think the intermittent access is because of the different IP address of the server from the one we we're on. I'm not positive but I suspect that there is a router somewhere that is causing the intermittent access.

I am also experiencing intermittent access myself.

This morning I got an answer from the webhost. Our numbers have reduced somewhat, but not enough to allow us to go back to the production server.
