    TR problems once again

    Locked

    by j.lupo ·

    This isn’t fair. I am getting [b]Page cannot be found[/b] all over again. I was working fine and then at 8:52am EDT I get that darned error. What’s up???

    Edited to add: It seems all the TR weirdness is back. Don’t even know if this edit will make it. System is really slow too.

      Getting intermittent errors since about 7:15 CDT 7/13

      Which is probably not as bad as it sounds- I have a full day today.

      Slow down started last night. Have gotten 404 on everything including the Discussion main page. Have also seen a number of half loads.

      Good luck, guys! Hopefully this won’t turn into the problem that it was last time.

      Perhaps percussive maintenance will help?

        percussive?

        In reply to Getting intermittent errors since about 7:15 CDT 7/13

        I don’t know that word TT. But we know the TR folks are working on it, it is just so frustrating as Rob said in his post.

          Percussive Maintenance

          Is the gentle art of whacking the snot out of a system that is crashing. In other words, hit it in precisely the right place to get it running again.

          God I feel old now…

      Opera v9.0 issues

      by dugadugdug ·

      In reply to TR problems once again

      I had an error when I went to post my two cents about a Windows ME Shutdown problem in Tech Q&A so I did a refresh and now see that my answer was posted 3 times. Anyone else having issues viewing Techrepublic with the new version of Opera v9.0? Whenever I go to view articles with this browser, I see the takeaway portion but then the comments made about the article are after it along with the toolbar (for lack of knowing the proper term) (e.g. Print Article, Email Article, etc)

        but I can say that TR is experiencing some problems including the double posting thing again.

          More on Opera 9.0 issue

          by dugadugdug ·

          In reply to I can’t speak to Opera

          In my case it was a triple post but I’ve had the problem mentioned since I upgraded to Opera9.0 awhile ago. I’ll see the opening of an article, e.g. Title, date, keywords, author and the Takeway section but after that I see next page link then the toolbar and then all comments that have been made. The article itself is way down the page after sponsored links.

          In reply to More on Opera 9.0 issue

          half page weirdness we experienced. But I saw a post from the TR folks that said they fixed the article link. You might want to try it out again and if it doesn’t work start a Site Issues/Feedback thread on the topic. TR people do scan through and even participate in the discussions from time to time.

          Thanks…

          for the feedback. I was interested to see if anyone else is using Opera 9.0 and is experiencing the same issue. It’s not that big a deal to me as I use Feedreader to read most postings/articles, it is just when I click on a link via an email that Opera will open. Since there are known issues being addressed, I’ll wait a bit before trying again.

        • #3212259

          Don’t hesitate to start a discussion about Opera

          by j.lupo ·

          In reply to Thanks…

          though. Ok? If there are users they may not see it in this thread that you wish to discuss the software.

          You never know. I have found the TR community to be very helpful about software/hardware and most topics. We love a challenge. Though I don’t use Opera myself (I like my Firefox), I have heard mixed reviews about it.

          If you open a discussion, you will get interesting feedback. Just a thought.

      We’re in server hell…

      by Jay Garmon ·

      In reply to TR problems once again

      Our server colocation move has been every bit as “interesting” as we feared. Our engineers are firefighting all day, every day, and we’re painfully aware of the problem. Rest assured, everything that can be done is being done, but we’re not out of the woods yet.

        THANK YOU!!!!!!

        In reply to We’re in server hell…

        We appreciate the update. I just knew if we posted what we were seeing, you folks at TR would let us all know what the scoop is.

        If we can be of help, let us loyal followers know.

      Engineers were on it as soon as the problem was detected. The app is up and running now.

        Is hearing about it from us losing it’s value?

        by tig2 ·

        In reply to No, it’s not fair

        Never know if you have seen the problem or not so don’t know if we should be bothering you.

        I still think that percussive maintenance is the answer. If nothing else, you might feel a little better…

        Thanks you and Jay for the updates!

        We need our TR and it is a lot better now at 10:00am EDT on 7/13. Though I still have some 404’s and a few “post comments” failures.

        In reply to No, it’s not fair

        And don’t get me wrong I’m not complaining but currently there are no [b]Banner Adds[/b] on the top of the discussion pages. ;\

        Now I know that you guys have to make money so I’m supposing that it’s a [b]Site Issue[/b] and since I’ve noticed that the adds are area related maybe it possible that it’s just my area that isn’t getting the adds. I would hate to see TR start loosing money and fold it’s way too much fun. :^0

          Well, each post does download

          In reply to UM Doug I don’t know if you’ve noticed

          Avenue A and MediaPlex, according to my Adware/Spyware filter (Either CounterSpy or Spybot S&D, whichever one was resident on my ws). Every time I opened a new post it asked me if I wanted to allow or block the downloads and I had to click NO once or TWICE every time.

          I then realized that I had to make a very important judgement call and choose my priorities wisely – so I uninstalled the darn thing.

          Any word on my profile updating yet? I know you all have your hands full over there with this wonderful site that keeps us all de-pressurized from our regular day-to-day duties. I, for one, appreciate that you are working on our behalf and I have trust that there is something that will allow me to update my profile eventually (even if it’s letting me know that it’s really just something stupid that I am doing wrong).

          Thank you for everything!

          That change was made several months ago.

      A new cool feature seems to have been implemented

      by j.lupo ·

      In reply to TR problems once again

      at least on my machine at the moment. When I go to the discussions main page and click on [b]Posts from my contacts[/b], the screen enlarges right off the right edge of the monitor. 🙂

      I am using IE at the moment as I am not on my home machine. It could just be this computer, but I thought I would mention it.

      As of 1.13 AM GMT on the 16 July 06 I’m getting a Page Not Found error on every page that I attempt to open. In both the Q & A and Discussion sections.

      Hope that is of some help to you.

          I didn’t stay on long as of the problems and I sort of had some work to do. But I still haven’t got around to finishing off my new workstation it appears that just mounting the M’Board with the CPU’s/RAM attached over 3 weeks ago now is the current limit of my current interest at the moment.

          Maybe I should have left it a bit longer and then i could have got those 2 Xeon’s cheaper as by the time I get around to finishing off this unit they will no longer be [b]Top Of The Line.[/b]
