Sunday, Monday, of this week, and today, (Tue, 5-2-06), I had trouble reading posts.
It starts first by only being able to open subforums, but posts do not respond.
Then after awhile, the entire site is unresponsive.
This always happens between 9:00AM - 12:00PM (morning here in Central daylight time)

I see the same lack of response regularly at around the same time as Jon_J these days. l can dependably get an initial list of new posts, but then can't read any of them. Later in the day, things are back to normal.

Sorry for the issues everyone... I've just been slammed at work.

I'm going to call dreamhost tomorrow to see what's up... I paid $1200 for an f'ing dedicated server and we've had more problems on it than on the shared server.

Please be patient with us.

Thanks!

The situation seems to be getting worst. I get more incidents of not being able to connect and not just at the regular times as before but much more frequently at random intervals.

offroadgeek -- not meaning to pressure you, but to provide ammunition when you deal with the hosting service. You have to give your work priority. Shelling out all that money for a hosting service and still having it suck up time malfunctioning is a real pain.

Like some others above, my sense is that things are still deteriorating. Yesterday I read a post, typed a reply, then couldn't get it to post or access anything else at the site for five or six hours afterwards. I later found that a couple of times it had in fact posted but I did not get the confirming screen and couldn't tell.

Good luck getting the hosting service to deal with the problem. Maybe it would help to tell the hosting service the users of this fairly geeky site include a high percentage of people who manage web services and there will be a lot of bad word-of-mouth if they keep screwing up?

just as a heads up Offroadgeek, things do seem to be getting worse.

For me (Eastern time), it used to be in the mornings, now, I get it many times a day.
And since in between my boring office work, OESF Forums is what keeps me awake, outages like these is costing my sanity at times.

How can I exist in this drab office setting without some lively techy zaurus discussions and dreaming of the next zaurus releases et al ?

.. and again when it does work (like now) its pretty fast and spiffy.

The site appeared to turn off at 9:30 am EST and turn back on about 5:00 pm EST today. Pinging seemed reliable while the web content was unreachable.

Just this morning I had an error message as opposed to the usual, "Page cannot be reached."

The error was, "SQL: Too many connections".

Maybe that lends a clue.

Same here in the midwest USA. While the forums were down, I tried to access:
http://www.oesf.org/index.php?title=Bluetooth
To read some info on Bluetooth. It was also down at the same time.
I finally got connected to the bluetooth page and saved it locally, so I could refer to it later.
I'm going to start saving a lot of webpages for reading offline.

Read the announcement that I posted today. I know it doesn't fix the issue at hand, but it does concern these forums in the longer term.

thanks for the update dz. maybe we should also have a backup site to go to when the site is down. ironic that this site used to be the site I went to when sharp's site went down. That's before I became a member. If people are donating to the pdaxrom and OE (hardware or other stuff), I think we should also do a little fund raising to help mike out. That's alot of financial burden for one man and this is a community.

I would have no problems donating a few bucks towards acceptable hosting.
