    This should seriously be the Site Motto! :D

    I get this message at least once a day (12 times today already), and I'm sure others get it alot too. Or there's the MySQL error that talks about something missing or wrong in Line X or something of the sort (too technical for me).

    Any way to fix these sort of problems? That quote there sometimes occurs even at off-hours (early morning USA pacific time (-7 GMT) is an off-time for the forums as an example).

    Yes it's something of a pain in the derriere. :)
    Especially if you try to post a new thread, and are scared stiff of posting eleventyone threads, just because the server is busy, and you don't know if the thread "connected" or not.

    Exactly...that's how all of my double posts have came about (think there's been like 3 out of 1700+ :)).

    I'm using a cable modem so I don't think that is the problem.

    In my state of mind.
    TF must be proud to see this error/warning is being used. :)

    If it produces the message whilst I am posting, I usually copy the post and then go back to the actual thread and then refresh it to see if my post has appeared, if it hasn't then I will try posting it again. This should aviod making double posts.

    Well, I do this too, but it isn't something I want to have to do.

    The alternative is to see the error message, as the site crashes.

    We could always ask TF for the voice ads back to get more money for a bigger server and more bandwidth. :mischief:

    The voice ads give more money?

    As long as it's not a "Core"-like ad, I'll be willing to bera a voice ad - I keep the sound off most of the time.

    Ad revenue goes to Telefragged, not Thunderfall if I'm not mistaken.

    Becka, Thunderfall said recently that Telefragged have promised 50% of the Ad revinue.

    Edit: I reserve the right to be 100% wrong, my memory is patchy at best ;)

    Edit2: I just checked and can find no evidence of my accusation. Oh well, I suppose someone will come along and tell me I'm wrong pretty soon.

    No, in the thread "Bigger Ad and forum status" TF said what anners (sorry) said.

    I reserve the right to be 100% wrong too.
