I thank you all for the positive somments about my quizes, but when it takes 270 seconds to take a quiz and freezes up every time,there comes apoint when you have to say 'I have had enough." I cannot evern write them because it takes just as long. I am sorry to have to do this but I have to say once again, it isn't enjoyable or wi=orht it anymore. Thanks to all of you for hter past 4 years but I have taken my last quiz on this network. Much love to all, Craig

What a shame, I played on another trivia site I used to play on all the time. I was going to recommend sploofus but we are having so many site problems I didn't want to recommend. Redsox is such a valuable player and quiz author for 4 years. This is a shame and should be rectified. When site is restored they should try and get his business back. Offer him a free platinum membership for a year or something. Just my opinion. My paid subscription is up tomorrow, I don't know I love it here but I joined for the trivia.

Hey all -

This is indeed frustrating! It took me 5 tries just to get this damn page to load up so that I could post an update! Grrrrr..... WTF!

When I added the 2 news servers on Sunday I also changed the configuration of our database servers to use a redundant replication system. That way, if one server failed it would automagically be taken down and the other servers would pick up where it left off. What is bogging down the system right now is the replication logic.

I am working non-stop on getting the system fixed. Trust me, it would be absolutely impossible for any human on the face of this earth to be more upset with this situation than ME. I am doing everything that I can to get things running quickly. It's all I CAN do. So, please, hang in there, and if it means you have to take some time away from the site then please do so. That would be better than succumbing to frustration - which is not an option that I have, After this is all finished up I will be more than happy to extend everyone's paid memberships for an additional month.

Thank you,

Sounds fair, Justin! Sploofus was an 'escape' for many of us and I guess the frustration is getting to us now! I guess we just feel deserted without regular updates on the situation!

I'm willing it all to work out quickly for you! Good Luck!

Good news. Redsox9 (Craig) still has a profile so he did ot quit He is such a nice guy and great prolific quiz writer it would have been a big loss.

Justin- If I ever run across Sploofus Goofus at a Rita's Water Ice stand, I'll buy a cup and enjoy it while playing the new speeded up Sploofus.
Good luck on the maintenance. I know it's been stressful for you too.

I am a happy camper at the extention of my paid membership, it was a great gesture. I hope Justin knows how much we appreciate hearing from him. That is really all we needed was some communication. That definitely creates an atmosphere of family for me and I hope for others. It restores my faith in sploofus online trivia!

I have to disagree.

After all, every time you give us an update, that means you're taking valuable time away from work fixing this.

No food, either.

Oh - and learn from that lady astronaut. Wear lots of Depends.

Now - quit reading this and MUSH!!!
