Hello everybody!

2 new database servers were installed yesterday, and today I have reconfigured our network for faster page loads and fewer dropped connections. I would really appreciate your feedback here in this thread over the next few days as you compare the new network with what you're accustomed to.

Glitches. My TTOTD just appeared, timer hung, finally showed as correct, closed, then listed as still not having been taken.

Then, it disappeared again!

Two posts in threads showed, didn't show, then showed again.

No improvement that I can see. Just sat and watched a quiz take about two minutes to load.

way too many freezes on just about every quiz. If i don't see any improvements then when i renew next time i won't. It is way too frustrating and agonizing and not even enjoyable any more. Just way too frustrating. I cannot do this any more.

I don't have any particular issues to cite, but I'm
sitting on nine TQoTD and would like some
assurance that it's safe to try answering them.

Hi Justin, It's 8 a.m. Tuesday 10/6 and after reading this thread, I redisplayed the list of Salty Dog threads, then I clicked on the previous thread "Big thank you to the editors", and got the following screen:
Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage
I clicked on Back, tried again, and it displayed OK.

Also on Monday afternoon when answering my TQOTD, it timed out without showing me the outcome. This was the first time in probably a year that I had a timeout. The whole site was really sluggish on Monday and pages were taking forever to display. Maybe it will be better today.

If you are currently"fixing' something think you should know it is NOt fixing. Hanging up like crazy

Today is worse than Monday and certainly worse than the old "normal." Much, much, much worse. Pages are taking forever to load or they don't load at all, and often some images are missing when pages do load.

I am hoping this is just due to labor pains from introducing new hardware into the configuration. Hope it can be tweaked and remedied soon. Feels like it needs more than tweaking -- it needs a hammer!

Good luck and godspeed-

This is so much worse than it was. Agree with Davy, pages not loading completely....did my word puzzle earlier and did well on the first one, went to submit and all it did was click off another move, could not submit.

Things seem to click on faster but then I am also experiencing weird hang and graphics that clear with hit refresh button and I also got the "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" which cleared by hitting refresh, I had never gotten that screen while on sploofus.

Do we have any type of time line when the site will be totally up and running?

And Showdown not resolved after 9 days.

My WP at about 3:45 Tuesday (Oct 6) was in large print and did not have a grid around the puzzle. I can't blame my lousy score on that but it looked weird.

I've just tried the "Redheads" WP for the second time today (after one reset); I give up. Response is slow and the system couldn't move forward to the second puzzle. When I tried to get back, it said I had already taken the puzzle.

I just tried to take the puzzle and it wasn't loading properly so I hit refresh page and then I got the message I had already taken the puzzle, which I hadn't. Lots of things are just not working right. The only thing that gives me hope is knowing that somewhere there is someone looking for the gremlins int he system.

Even when the site is working normally, it's best not to hit the refresh button on your browser, as doing so will boot you out of the word puzzle, and you'll need a reset.

We apologize for the current problems and thank you for your continued patience as Justin irons out the kinks after the network upgrade.

I didn't refresh just got a time out. I had finished and it doesn't show finish or points. Ironically, one of my best times. It's a topic I'm familiar with. Dang.

Just finished the puzzle on comets, and when i hit the last submit puzzle button it came up navigation error, which i seem to be getting a lot. Getting off for tonight as this is supposed to be my relaxing time and i will tell you i am not relaxed at all. Maybe it will be better tomorrow. charlotte
