    It seems like today the MAP site is really moving very slowly. Is there a problem with the site or is it just my computer?

    Yeah, I noticed it too.. kind of hard not too.. I've also seen a few double posts.. i.e. I think someone edited a post, but it got posted as a new post.. so yeah weirds stuff..

    For some reason the site is DOG SLOW at the moment.... it took about 10 minutes just to get this to post. :cry:

    Human sacrifices are in order if it doesn't get sorted soon.

    Should be back to normal now ;) .. a bit of a server load

    ....we had quite a few guests accessing the site :D

    As mentioned in the past --
    MAP is growing !

    We're currently looking at ways to improve the situation without having to sell one of the Admin's first born

    Not just slow - DNS problems, too.

    We're aware of the problems, and it does appear to be a DNS issue.

    Our hosts are looking into it - I ask that mapper's bear with us till we get this sorted :)

    Just a wild guess/suggestion but could you not have a couple of domains like and .org all accessing the same server/cluster or whatever your using if its a DNS problem, just a thought

    You mean the urge to be on MAP 24/7 or the slow site? :p

    hey, how do you think those of us at work felt... we couldn't goof off!

    hux ya, whatever.

    gawd, that was awful. Please, get some redundancy going - I can't handle that downtime crap.


    These guys rawk, if you guys are looking at this avenue:

    That wouldn't solve the DNS issue. The domain is the DNS name, so having more of those pointing to the same server wouldn't help.

    Having a cluster server would cost a small fortune, and the data being mirrored across that would probably slow the site down some more.

    Sorry to everyone who had to either face reality, do some work or leave your home while MAP was down, but we're back now :D
