Me too. Happening alot lately. Was suppose to be the SQL virus last week. ???
Thanks for keeping the "technobabble" to a minimum. In other words, you're thinking we get that "Sorry - try refreshing" error page because there are too many users trying to get into .ORG? Or is the 'server' used by other sites? Please pardon by ingnorance...killrbeez said:
the virus, aka slammer, targeted servers running microsoft's sql server 2000. the servers running this message board runs mysql (an open source database), which usually runs on a unix/linux based server.
this server was probably just overloaded and couldn't handle the additional connections.
and as for a screen capture app... take a look at LView Pro. it's free and it has a screen capture feature built in. not the prettiest user interface in the world, but like i said, it's free.
(it's in the edit | capture | desktop menu)
That's what the msg makes ya think but I vote for the later. Not that many people on here when I've been "errored" out. Maybe tied into acuramdx server. Who knows. Probably is a conspiracy theory at play here. :1:killrbeez said:From looking at the error msg that brooklynpilot posted, it's probably too many people accessing the forum/message board database at the exact same time.
or, I could be totally wrong and it's actually a bunch of people who can't buy Pilots and are jealous of us and messing with the site?
It's OK Admin. Doesn't happen that often but frustrating when it does. We're just razzin' at your expense a bit.admin said:This server s*cks. I'm having a lot of problems with it. I will try to move us to a different one if they can't fix the errors. We'll see how it goes. I hope I can resolve this soon.
