Hi all.
I'm having some strange happenings with WW board this morning.
On the recent post page I cant see no more than twenty five posted
messages. I cant see the bottom of the page.

A few times on the board I get a page cannot be found.
What gives?
Just a morning sickness thing this morning?

Hi Jaybee,

I've not noticed anything. Is it just this site? Could it be an internet problem your end?

Lost footer on active list too. Also, it seems that markers of read posts are sticky.

It is called the red balls syndrome, it happends when too much noise is made in some forum... ;)

I guess that's the answer then.
It is screaming out loud as in noise because it is going through labor pains. :)

I'm using win 98se with IE. I did a scan disc, however as of this time it's still the same. Besides regular maintenance is run every night on this box.

It's clearly:

a) Sabotage by Google to get rid of the hostile threads

or

b) The -SJ virus!

Yep - there are some issues with scale that are being squeezed out here lately. When I designed this software, I was figuring on 150-200k views a day, and 10k active members that it would handle easily. We've beat that 6 fold some days this spring. (yep - 3 days over a mil page views recently).

That kind of traffic means some issues are popping up that rarely get exposed at lesser traffic levels. One of those issues is this random nuking of the active list. I know the issue at the root, but I am unable to do anything but a bandaid hack fix until I redesign that part of the system (huge investment of time). The bandaid has been applied. ;-) If it happens again, the active list will self heal within an hour and a half via cron jobs.

rescue and save the day. Bless you.
