Database problems

I’ve noticed the last few days that if I look at more than a few threads,I start getting database error messages. Did a hamster die,or is it just me?

I’ve been posting here for two years now, and I literally cannot remember a time when the boards weren’t slow, or when thread-loading didn’t time out at some point in the proceedings, or when you never got the “There seems to have been a problem with the database” error screen.

It’s not just you, it’s the slow server and our own popularity. You get used to it. [shrug] :smiley:

dogbutler - it’s not just you, I’ve seen it too, and (obviously) so has Duck Duck Goose. As DDG says it’s due to the overworked server. I don’t think it’s related to the number of threads that you view in a day.

I tend to get it when I try to open too many threads at once…it serves as a pretty good measure of how slow the boards are at any given time… :slight_smile: Although, I try to limit myself to loading 2-4 threads at the most.

So the hamsters are alive, they’re just on Quaaludes.:wink:
