There seems to be an unusually high server load on the site today – got quite a few SQL Time Outs – which I haven’t see on the site in a long time…
We're so super cool popular ^_^
Same, thought it was just me.
More lags today.
Despite the fact that our guest and member population is currently at an all-time low?
A lag is a lag ;)
But yeah, I sat there waiting for 5 minutes with no response from the site. Even though there's less activity here on the site itself - we are still effected by the overall load of every single site on the web server that's hosting the site.
Happened again for me today
/me dodged the bullet
Happened just now for me, and I think for everyone else as well, judging from the amount of users online.
Happened to me too.
Yup, me too
yep couldnt access the site for a good 15 minutes or so

I've gotten this error message for about the last 45 minutes off and on
Happened to me about three minutes ago (again) :p
OMG IT IS SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO SLOW TODAY TO DO ANYTHING! and the continual crashes are starting to get under my skin, I've tried sending the same friggin PM now 7 separate times since Noon Est....
It may be time for Alex to upgrade the server....
Happened again just now, and HUGE lag.
True that, the sight has been running intolerably slow by most standards.
I'll try to keep an eye on this... it seems to come and go ?
I got a strange error yesterday Alex, wish I woulda screen capped it for you.
It said something about, server application has been submitted for nullification. then further down it was a bunch of gibberish and said something about the server had been marked as hazardous. If it ever pops up again I will make sure to get it (I was on my kindle HD No idea how to screen cap from that)
I'm not getting server time outs, but this is the slowest i've ever seen the site.
slows as in posts or as in loads? Because I was able to smoke a cigarette before the fucking page loaded....
Slow as in loads. It takes a decent two minutes for anything to load.
Aaaaaaaaaaaand now it's better.
So much lag, i've timed out dozens of times today, and i've been getting server errors all week.
Server Error in '/' Application.
Many of these, and lag. So. Much. Lag.
Only gotten it once.
I haven't had any issues at all
Got the SQL Error once this afternoon...
yesterday was terrible till about 8pm for me.got the stupid error screen 3-4 times each on my phoe/kindle. And couldnt load the site at all from either my laptop or desktop.
I've only had this once or twice both in seperate nights, very late in the evening. I thought the server did that every once in a strange aeon to reset itself, but I never bothered to read the text, because it was usually over after I refreshed the page once or twice.
But it could just be a fluke, if your computer doesn't read one single character out of the millions, the result could be drastically different, resultig in errors, but I'm a know-nothing in this department, so I know nothing.
The site is running incredibly slow for me today this afternoon - not timing out yet (knock on wood), but still taking 20 seconds to load pages in some cases...
WOW - My Messages wont even load...
Yeah, Sorry Drak & Kwism - I see that you have sent me PMs, but I can't yet access them. I'll try again in an hour or two...
Yeah, what's up with the lag?
It was completely un-accessible for me today for two to three hours at least. Glad to see it back up though... :)
Did CYS just crash hard for everyone else, too?
Yeah, it was like a kick in the nuts for the site...
No problems here
I think Alex uses the DailyWTF's(his other site) server for this, so I think this occurs when there is high traffic on the other site.
I've only got it once, as most people are online when I'm offline.
