I've experienced some slowness of late, but its been intermittent and mostly normal.

Is it the time of year for the loosing of the gremlins? I was trying to send a PM to THO and keep getting an not loading error upon clicking "SEND." In addition, when I tried to view my PM box I got the same error. And finally, when trying to load this specific forum to post about it, same error.

Not at the moment. It's been more responsive today than on some recent days.

Same.

Since yesterday i'm having a lot of this:

Active Server Pages error 'ASP 0113'

Script timed out

/topic.asp

The maximum amount of time for a script to execute was exceeded. You can change this limit by specifying a new value for the property Server.ScriptTimeout or by changing the value in the IIS administration tools.

It's been really bad the last couple of days... I've had times I've had to refresh a page a dozen times to get the thread to fully load.

Strangely enough, I was actually "feeding" some old virtual gremlins last night. But it was on an old laptop with no internet access.

I thought it had gone away. But then a couple of days after I had thought I had successfully sent it I checked and it was not in my outbox. Unfortunately, I have forgotten what I was trying to ask.

Fair enough. I'll keep an eye on this, regardless, just to be sure.

Aye, ironically the Candlekeep server cost isn't cheap and disappointing that the stability is quite poor and inadequate The host obviously don't expect so many active scribes working on Realmslore at any one time

Actually, I might be of service in that area (as well as others). I have solid hosting that I was actually thinking of getting rid of, since I barely use it. I might be persuaded to host Candlekeep. I'd just need to see some storage and bandwidth numbers. I'd, of course, give access to the server, database, and anything else for those that needed it.

I'd also offer my services to maybe make the changeover to a different forum software, and perhaps an actual CMS system if you guys were so inclined.

Feel free to PM me. I'd be more than happy to help if I can.

PS - If it did not come across in my post. This would be at no cost to anyone. I already pay for the hosting, I might as well put it to use.

This is a generous offer, I do hope Big Al and you can work out something.
I do have a minor project that could used improved hosting. As it is not candlekeep related I will send a PM and see if you are interested in helping or hosting.

Well met

Many thanks for the offer, angerzen. I'll also respond to your lengthier PM on other items, shortly.

With regards to hosting, Candlekeep has had to move web hosts a number of times due to the vast amount of bandwidth used. At one point it was personally costing $120 bandwidth charge per month on top of the annual hosting fee! Even since moving to the current host a few years back, we have had to move server/application pools on the shared servers due to the forum sucking a vast majority of the database resources (hence the ASP errors we have experienced in the past).

The forum is certainly undergoing migration but with a custom built site integrated, rather than a CMS. Watch this space...

Just had a little chuckle at the fact that while this particular scroll was opening, I encountered an ASP error.

Hehe. That's never happened before.

Not really a server problem, I don't think, but for some reason the text is no longer wrapping meaning I have to arrow over to see the complete text. Never had that happen before. Help?

Edit: Odd. It seems to have fixed itself.

Sometimes a url over long causes the problem the "word" is too long so can not wrap.

Odder still it appears to only happen in the "Exalted Monk follower of...Sharess" scroll.
