    Haha...yeah kind of funny that we switched and there were two unscheduled drops. But at least the admin knows his stuff. The zone has seen much worse and more often.

    At least new posters were able to get approved over there. Dont know how many fans tried to get approved on the zone and never did.

    I'm a Zone loyalist & railed pretty hard on VCU for posting links to their new board on the Zone. That said, making sure new people could register was what made me switch to CSNbbs. There have been a TON of new folks register over there that complained they couldn't register here.

    Actually, I would prefer that we just had our OWN website with a message board. Seems like JMUsports could host a message board, since that is the in-house authority for JMU sports. Then again, on second thought, if JMUsports hosted a board it would probably be moderated/censored to death.

    CSN is down yet again. Twice so far this week. Still happy with the decision to move?

    First time this week, actually.

    Best part? It's back up within an hour, unlike here where we went days (even weeks at one point)

    definitely has had issues a couple of times this week, and a couple of times today. I like being able to look at activity across conferences and boards, and like the overall operation of his board...hopefully things get straightened out soon!

    Could be completely just timing on my part, but I feel like the outtages on new board occur way more frequently than the outages on this board.

    yea....I'd say that is timing. I have been a member over there since 2004, and these last 2 months have had more outages than the last 9 years.

    That site goes down more than a $3 hooker.

    If it's down this often during slow times, what's going to happen when September rolls around?

    The board has been down LESS than 24 hours TOTAL in the last 6 weeks. The zone was crashing weekly and for longer periods.

    ehh, i don't know about that. I think CSNBBS has been down the same amount as the Zone.

    to me it's not a question of one board being better than the other. They both are the same as far as i'm concerned. It's more a matter of I don't think we will be in the CAA very much longer. So no real reason to stay long term on a CAA grouped message board.

    back up...down for 2.5 hours, which is by far the longest outage I can remember.

    Geeeeez. and it's down once again.

    GTS has said it's upgrades, it's glitches in upgrades it's this or that, so who knows. Hopefully they get it ironed out and smooth sailing from here on out. But otherwise, hmmmm.

    "maximum server load limit has been reached. Please check back later once the server is less busy."

    Yep. I don;t know enough about this stuff to know what's going on, this apparently is stuff that can't be done overnight or at another time, say saturday A.M. or something? maybe it wouldn't function at all without these "fixes".

    Makes me mad, I actually did work today...

    Aaaaand again. So whats the count for today? 4? 5? these are intermittent and pretty brief but frustrating nonetheless if trying to read up on something.

    "The problem is a really hard to nail down issue in the PHP accelerator we *have* to have to be able to serve up the number of requests we do. Using the most recent software -- it just returns a blank white page. No errors. No messages. Nothing. It doesn't even leave an error log trace. All logs clean. So the current PHP accelerator we're running now is doing JUST good enough to keep us up and not much more. It's seriously limping along. I'd really much much rather fix the bug than throw more hardware at it. Our current server is maxed out ... so a hardware upgrade is going to be $4,000. I'm going to leave it limping along while I aggressively archive posts to help things on the database side of things."

    No software is f'n up but not leaving an error log.

    Offers still out if you guys need a decent board. I've got software/hardware. That said his op cache for php should have error logs. If not he needs to recompile php with proper log support, or change to a better op cache

    There is absolutely no reason why JMU doesn't have its own board.

    "Tapatalk is disabled" welcome to 2004

    Maximum server load met, check back again later. It's 9AM on Monday morning in the middle of the summer with nearly nothing going on in terms of football. I'm really starting to question whether or not the decision to move over there was wise or not.

    Site is in the process of migrating to a brand new $3500 server that will fix any/all issues. Should be up and running this week.
