    OK who broke TR today?

    Locked

    by hal 9000 ·

    The 404 seem to be accepted as normal these days they just happen so often but this is something new for me at least.

    Open a discussion from one of the Blogs and then click on the link to the Blog to get your Browser to restart. I first ran across this while doing some testing on the 64 Bit version of 7 and thought hello another glitch so I switched to the 32 Bit version found the same thing happened and then I moved to a XP workstation had had the same thing occur so it’s not a 7 Problem it has to be a TR Issue.

    This is happening with both Infernal Exploder 7 and FF3 on XP as well as Infernal Exploder 8 and FF3 on 7.

    So who’s responsible for this interesting new development?

      nothing to do with the password harvester that I installed today, nice to have your password.

      And thanks to all for inadvertently supplying your password, I did not realize that it would cause 404 errors so I have removed my hack ware so you may surf TR unmolested for the rest of the night, sorry for any inconvenience that this may have caused.

      I will be upgrading my password software and in the next version I hope to avoid any 404 errors.

      Michael.

          The smart @ss sh*t that is running through my brain lately. I can hardly get past a post title without thinking something totally smart @ss and ‘out of order’.
          Sheesh. Wicked little bartender girl has escaped her freaking closet. 😀

          That there is no such thing as a Good Girl. They simply don’t exist never have and never will. There are only [b]Bad Girls and Better Girls. [/b] :^0

      but I’ve been getting page load errors all day. Takes two or three refreshes to get the page to load. Also, I had to find a back way into My Workspace just now.

      You’d better leave those freaking airlock doors closed. You’re really gumming up the works. 😀

      You open another airlock door HAL? :D

      It’s 404 in the morning and once more the dawning, Just woke up the wanting in me

      Wishing I’d never met TR, knowing if I’d forget TR, How much better off I would be

      The longer I hold on and the longer this goes on, The harder that it’s gonna be

      But it’s 404 in the morning and once more the dawning, Just woke up the wanting in me

          The Shutting down Browsers completely is something new.

          Right at the moment I can not get into TROLOV no matter what I try. 🙁

          Every time that I try a link of any description the Browser closes. Looks like I’m going to miss my weekly fix. :_|

        and thank you for enquiring about my health it was a very nice gesture. 😀

        Now I have a couple of questions.

        How BIG was that Bird

        Is it still there

        Is it nesting

        What is its name

        To pinch a phrase, enquiring minds would like to know.

      Expect some downtime today – 1/16

      by debuggist ·

      In reply to OK who broke TR today?

      The database is experiencing contention, and we’re trying to identify the cause. None of the usual suspects apply.

      We’ll most likely need to restart it to apply some changes, so expect some downtime.

      Sorry

      I have considered cancelling newsletters

      by silversidhe ·

      In reply to OK who broke TR today?

      more than half of the links are not working. I thought it would be fixed by now and wouldn’t you know it I thought there was a link that used to be in the newsletters for these kind of problems but I couldn’t find it (of course it wouldn’t work anyway). I found this posting after several searches from the main page.

      • #2776552

        Well if all you want to do is change your Newsletter Subscription

        by hal 9000 ·

        In reply to I have considered cancelling newsletters

        Click on My Newsletters on the top right of the screen and tick what you want or untick what you no longer need.

        OK the changes when you have finished and generally speaking within 2 Business Days you stop receiving any newsletters that you chose to unsubscribe from. New newsletters that you subscribe to are delivered on the same day usually speaking or when they are next issued.

        That is one thing that seems to work quite well on TR.

        Been happening a lot lately,

        by seanferd ·

        In reply to I have considered cancelling newsletters

        But it doesn’t usually last long. They’ve been constantly tweaking things on the site, particularly in the forums, from what I can tell. Suddenly, emoticons in post titles are replaced by the emoticon name, for example. (Oddity or permanent change, I don’t know, but it happened before my very eyes.)

      • #2776536

        Normally…

        by Tammy.Cavadias ·

        In reply to I have considered cancelling newsletters

        simply clearing ones cache and cookies resolves the issue of links in the TR newsletters not redirecting properly. Have you tried that yet?
