12:48 am PST took just under 3 minutes just to log in, then on trying to select "New Posts" at 12:54AM PST waited 15 to 20 seconds only to then get the notice "An unexpected database error occurred. Please try again later." and get kicked out of the site altogether.

7;14 AM EST, -5 EMT offset, I was unable to get into my messages.
So I came on here and it took 46 seconds to connect, another 14 seconds to get into the thread, and then it worked okay.

I know a way to expand the band width! If we all pay a user's fee of ten dollars a month, one of two things will occur and perhaps both will:
...1. The owner of the site will have more liquid funds and be able to purchase more Band Width,
...2. Less people will use the site freeing the Band Width for 2 or 3 of us to beat our gums over.

I think I'm just going to endure because I do not have Liquid Funds and appreciate that somebody is paying my way.

Row row row your boat
slowly down the stream
merrily merrily merrily merrily
posting's just a dream

5:09 PM EST, we are in the midst of a total breakdown

I made this video recording of me browsing the site yesterday. I was getting about 1 second page loads. Just wondering how often people also get this good speed. I get it most of the time. Of course I get the occasional slow loads and database errors, but curious about others' experiences.

I hang around here a lot and it happens a lot.
I guess that's the answer.
The more time you spend on here, the more it happens.

I get very reasonable speeds most of the time. If I put a number on the slow loads or errors I would place it at around five percent. Reasonable.

Reasonable?
I'm a man on the go!
When I click something, I want action.
Yes, the Computer and the web have spoiled people. Can you imagine this attitude in relation to real world events? I had ten other men under my direction one night when we were over run. The charging NVA and VC tossed zero grenades into our location because I waited for them to be ten to fifteen feet from us before opening up to exterminate the threat. And bless their pea picking hearts, every one of those kids held their fire until I fired the first round. We killed every one of the assault team charging our position and I lost zero men to that point in that battle.

Even God advises wisdom of the snake, patients. And I, being on a fixed income and having let go of all my web sites so appreciate folks like Eora and the assembled team. Few they are that know the headaches of reading thousands of lines of code looking for one, not apparent, error.

I get speed at least that good most of the time too. I never tried to keep track of the actual percentage of time it is, say, 1 second or less. But yes, it runs at least that fast the majority of the time for me. But there is still a much bigger problem than other web sites have, even if it isn't slow the majority of the time. Unless I am out of town and away from the internet I am on this site and others every day, and almost every day at least once it will get so bad I just have to walk away and forget about it. Most days it happens more than once, but of course, doesn't get reported here because how can I report it when I can't even get logged in or get this thread to load. By the time I come back I have other things to do, can't remember the times of the problem, or have simply forgotten about it because it is such a common occurrence. Even though this doesn't happen "most" of the time, it almost never happens to me on any other sites. Almost never is a huge difference from it being a regular daily occurrence.

Update: i installed Chromium in Debian Linux, and it appears to be running faster, before it was Firefox in Windows..:wave
LOL! Windoze, not windows and you didn't say but I will, it boots and shuts down faster. Linux does everything faster.

If you dual booted it you will not be able to go through the windows file system until you turn off the fast boot in the Control Panel

6:35PM PST: Tried to load that "Postings" tab of a members page and it was taking longer than 60 seconds each time, just saying "Loading..." on the screen (after 60 seconds I would give up and try again). Never did get in. Tried to go to the Forums list and had a similar problem, but after about 40 seconds it did finally load the list of forums. Had to just log out then come back again.
