More Site Issues?

Is anyone else having issues with using the response link? I keep trying to answer comments, I get told my response has been posted, I hit reload and nothing.

Who else is ready to charter a bus and storm the Friend Finder compound with torches, pitchforks and Unix manuals?

Oh they have site issues alright. They also have hearing problems as well apparently, idiots.

I prefer Molotov cocktails and a copy of HTML for Morons, but to each their own.

MissAnnThrope replies on 8/24/2006 7:50 pm:
We can light the Molotov cocktails with the torches! We're also going to need a Perl manual too, as so many other parts of the site are built with cgi on a Perl platform.

I don't have that feature, but this whole blog area has been a bit batty lately. Also, they are using a thicker molassas than last month. Everything is so slow...

MissAnnThrope replies on 8/24/2006 7:52 pm:
Yep. I'm glad the issues seem to have cleared up for the moment. But it's only been today the response box is back to working for me.

This place is a total nightmare. It's been the same in the years that I've been here.

They're so busy prettying the site up rather than spending PROPER cash on speeding it up, that they don't care. It's no wonder people don't want to pay to join - at least if they offered speed instead of pretty, it would encourage prople a little more.

MissAnnThrope replies on 8/24/2006 7:55 pm:
Yep. Well in my mind as far as speed goes, a lot of that has to do with the hosting company. According to Netcraft, this site doesn't run its own servers. But just pay for the extra servers already!

Yeah its always thrilling when they start tinkering with things just makes it harder to comment

Or view blogs, or answer comments, or even make posts. Yep. Test by going live, instead of getting together a beta testing group. Brilliant.

Today has been one of the worst I've had on here. When I can't get it to even load my own blog, it's pretty bad. I've managed to leave 4 other comments since 7am...that's pretty damn sorry, lol.
But I did send in my requisite email, and I wrote a love letter to the humble CEO, and now I'm thinking a stiletto heel to just the right "member" would be extremely effective

MissAnnThrope replies on 8/24/2006 7:58 pm:
Heh heh heh... Who's to say he wouldn't actually like that?

Yeah! That's why it doesn't look like I've responded to my comments in days! It's all AdultFriendFinder's fault, is what it is. I try and I try, but the site just eats them all.

Yeah. That's it.

As a standard member, I guess I should be grateful that they even allow me to participate in here.

I concur with the others about the speed of the site.

I would love to go through my watch list, but today I might just throw my hands in the air and say fuck it.

I was considering becoming a paying member again. I only blog here and I would love to use some of the features for premium members.

I am going to wait and see what happens.


MissAnnThrope replies on 8/24/2006 8:00 pm:
Well, it seems to be better now.

i've been having trouble with my blog all day...thats just one thing...a few times it showed that i didn't even have a blog! ?????

..just join me on my blog bustybettyboop and still looking for some hot,sexy,creative contestants for my next contest...come join us! need a blog mentor or want to be one?

MissAnnThrope replies on 8/24/2006 8:02 pm:
Yep. That happens when the blogs go down. Try to get to any main page and all that's there is a placeholder. The way I actually got to blogs the other day was to type in the handle of the person whose blog I wanted to visit and then I clicked on individual posts, instead of the main index page. That was the ONLY way.

(What the fuck is this shit..?? *rolls eyes*)

8/22/2006 3:20 pm

Count me in as I've taken to playing Spider Solitaire while waiting for the pages to load...This NOT a good thing...!!...Ready


MissAnnThrope replies on 8/24/2006 8:04 pm:
You know, I've become readdicted to Spider Solitaire, to the point where I didn't care the site was actually working again today. Is it even possible to win a game of SS when you use all four suits?

Hey, everytime I clicked on a blog this morning the person didn't have one. All I got was "welcome to the future home of" so and so's blog. Even better, everyone had my eye on their future blog page.

Have tongue, will use it. Repeatedly.

MissAnnThrope replies on 8/24/2006 8:05 pm:
Yep. It also wasn't the first time in recent memory that that's happened.

System is slow as shit in Dec. I've had the same problem, but the responses do take. Most of the time. System is just overrun again. Much like the Red Socks. Ann, you should be in your glory. Joe

How about a herd of eunuchs named Manuel, with flaming pitchforks..? Anybody got a Geo Storm to carpool in?



Been a while since they last let me out into polite society. Resurfacing, catching a breath, & catching up.

And while I got my Broad-Brimmed Pimping Hat on, could I cajole all of y'all to Comment on, Alone In A Cloud? It's probably the best thing that I've written!



MissAnnThrope replies on 8/24/2006 8:09 pm:
Screw Dilbert. We're chartering a bus and using pitchforks and torches. If we took a Geo Storm, we'd get stuck in the Donner Pass, just in time for winter.

I completely gave up on the site yesterday for quite a while I didn't have a blog. So count me in for the angry mob.


MissAnnThrope replies on 8/24/2006 8:09 pm:
It happened to us all. So one more for the bus. Cool!

I think it's the last bunch of upgrades that did it. They were the kind of things that changed the programming of the commenting feature. I'll give it another week before I start pulling my hair out.

I usually have to wait two or three eternities to go from one blog to another. So infuriating.

Come into my realm! You aren't afraid...are you?

They probably need a bit more than UNIX for Dummies. I'd say a few experienced Perl/php/whatever programmers to debug whatever it is they're botching, or rewrite their CGI scripts altogether.

In any event, they should really have some sort of bug reporting mechanism and a perpetual bughunt effort in progress at all times, like all proper software and hardware projects.

MissAnnThrope replies on 8/24/2006 8:15 pm:
I'm betting it's a Perl platform, as it's the same old coding as from when the site began in the late 90s. They didn't have PhP then. But PhP would probably be a better platform for the blogs. As far as the hardware, they don't do their own hosting. Savvis is the host.

yes, bake it into brownies. Thats a great idea.
