Board Unavailable In the Mornings
« on: June 03, 2013, 12:41:24 PM »
Lately, I've noticed the Board is not available around 8:30 a.m. EST for about a half hour on average.  Some days it's longer and some days it's shorter.

Yes, every single day.  I've come to expect it.

It's like that at 7.30 in the morning UK time till about 8, and again at lunchtimes, usually about 1.15, for anything up to an hour.

Rather annoying when before work and lunchtimes are the times I want to read.

I have that problem, too (same time zone). I usually open another window and browse news sites, coming back to hit refresh on my eHell tab every 5 minutes or so until I can get on.

I've noticed this as well. And it's not just the boards for me, it's the main site, too.

Yup. Sometimes I'll open up several threads on separate tabs so that I can browse through each of them without having to hit a link first. Inevitably, that's the day it works fine, and when I don't do it the next day, it's down again. But yeah. I just end up going to other sites in the meantime.

Worst thing is if I'm in the middle of typing out a reply and then hit preview or post. It's hit or miss whether I lose what I typed so sometimes I'll copy-paste it into word if I think quickly enough.

Yeah, it's been happening around a month now.  It goes on and off between 8-10am, and then later around noon but not as long as in the morning.  Sometimes I think it's back, only for it to go out 20 seconds later.

I've noticed it, too.  Sometimes, it is browser related so for troubleshooting purposes, I'm using IE8 when I have the problems, 8:30 to 10:00 EDT.

I just expect that from somewhere around 8:30AM to somewhere about 10AM, Eastern time, I won't have access. I come in sometimes early and open a half dozen tabs so I won't run out of 'goofing off' material while the board does its daily ablutions. :-)

Me too.  Glad it's not just me.  It seems like this happened several months or a year ago, stopped for awhile, and has been doing it again for a month or two now.

I remember the Dame saying something about the server updating in the mornings.  As for the lunchtime downtime, I'm not sure what that is.

Happens to me and I just figure the site is updating.  But it is still a little frustrating!

If it's the server updating or if it's too many posters logging into the site at peak times, wouldn't it happen every day continuesly?  What I don't understand is why the site will be fine for many many months or even a year, and then this issue will pop up again.  But I'm no computer expert. 

I'm not really bothered by it since I just go to other websites.  I just don't understand it.
