Thanks for reporting this. Traffic has been about average during the past few days, that is to say, fairly heavy. I’ll keep an eye on it. Please let me know if you see any more offline messages or if the performance improves.

Yup, same here.  Even got a bunch of jibberish across my screen about SQL errors.

Do multiple BLF pages per device affect server load?

Three Tanna leaves to give him life, nine to give him movement. But what if he eats the whole bag?

That message means that you have too many flashlights and need to send me some for proper disposal… J)

rufusbduck is to blame for this. He is hogging the server with 6095 pages open. I suggest he should be experimenting with drivers and not interupting our browsing pleasure.Cry

You have failed to produce the proper disposal documentation, therefore you need to transmit them in my direction

I got the drupal message on the morning of the 24th but was about to hit the road for the holiday. Got it and then tried again about 10 minutes later and still had it. I’d guess traffic was probably higher than normal.

I've certainly been getting it more often than I did say a month ago, of course that may be because of increased traffic due to the holidays.

Hi everyone,

Sorry everyone for the poor performance. I’m not too sure why the site is suffering so much these past 7 days or so. Traffic is about normal.

I made some tweaks, please let me know if you continue to experience problems.

Thanks a lot for your patience! Have fun.

Getting drupal messages off and on all day…hopefully being addressed. Any updates that can be shared? Thanks.

No one, after lighting a lamp, puts it away in a cellar nor under a basket, but on the lampstand, so that those who enter may see the light.

Hi everyone,

Sorry for the frequent errors this week. I finally identified a major issue with one thread that was causing some processes to crash and hang, which was partially responsible for the frequent periods of inaccessibility.

Additionally, I reworked the way an internal housekeeping script is executed to further reduce the probability of too many SQL requests and PHP processes stacking up on top of each other.

Please let me know how it works for you in the next few days. As always, thanks a lot for your patience! Have fun.
