It's been taking a very long time for pages to load for several days now. We use AOL via a Verizon "air card".

Also, today I noticed that under my Forum sign on name, it said I had 65355 unread, and 6 total private messages. In reality, I had no (zero) unread private messages. After I cleared my mailbox of the 2 stored messages received, the display correctly read "0 unread, 4 total".

Just thought you'd like to know.

I get this every time I try to vote on a poll...no other time...if that means anything to helping you the problem.

Thanks or all you do...it's easy to take it all working smoothly for granted and to forget all the time, effort and knowledge that is behind making it all work smoothly and seamlessly...so thanks for making that happen.

I don't know. I run a school's technology and we have just so much of a pipe to the Internet and the Internet is soooo big, with sooo much bandwidth. Though I couldn't rule out some type of impact, it would be fairly low IMHO.

Speaking as a technology person, here are some observations I have had the last few days FWIW:

Slow pages

Posting a post, being told the database is having an error, going back to resubmit and it posts the post 2x.

Site becomes totally unresponsive in the middle of surfing the site (one minute it's fine, then clicking on another page I get a time out event where my browser produces an error saying the page requested could not be found (Firefox version 2.0.0.6)

**edit** just as I posted this, I got this message again:

There seems to have been a problem with the Airstream Forums database.
Please try again by clicking the Refresh button in your web browser.
An E-Mail has been dispatched to our Technical Staff, whom you can also contact if the problem persists.
We apologise for any inconvenience.




Which means that by going back, it posted this 2x.

One last observation is that even though it has accepted the post(s) when that last error happens, the database does not place that thread back on top of the top 20 list as one of the most recent threads that have new posts to it.

I am having problems as well. It does not seem to be a bandwidth glitch, however. I am reasonably sure that the forums software has a snafu.
My private messages counter has been showing "2" for several days now, and the pages load slowly.
Only very few of my posts actually go through. I get the same error message as Silvertwinkie.

Error Message on a Reply

I just got the Database Error message on making a reply, but the reply still posted. There are also several threads where messages from yesterday posted twice.

Hey SilverTwinkie,

I don't have all those issues, and I use Windows XP Pro. Sure it doesn't have something to do with that Mac?

P.S. Sorry, I couldn't resist: it's just that this was the first tech/computer related thread I found where somebody wasn't trying to sell me a Mac.

I got the same message while replying to a new member a little while ago. I deleted the second post, but thought you’d want to know. Safari 2.0.4 (419.3).

Rivet More Strange Forum Behavior

Odd. I passed 440 posts yesterday. I went to Home Depot, this afternoon and when I got back I had 435 posts?

Is this one of those Rivet Master rituals that begin as you near that esteemed status?

As the parent of a 13 year old I take the opposite view, my son stays on XBOX Live 12 hours a day well it seems like it anyway. Now is going back to school and his internet use will be curtailed.
