Aside from aesthetic or content issues, how's it functioning for you?

I get phpBB: Critical error Could not connect to database whenever there are a lot of people logged on. Annoying as hell. And likely to make me stop using the system. Response time is not great, either. My connection is extremely fast for everything else, so it's not just lag in our network.

Me too. Though this has diminished in the past
couple days, I think (have been using it less).
In the past several days I've been okay with
the speed and responsiveness.

We should move this discussion over here:

index.php?c=22

It's artificial to maintain this discussion in
the 2003 Theme area.

Note that I and precipitate have started
posting comments there.

There's been times today that the server has been a total dog. Of course I'm at work and the firewall over here sucks too. Still this seemed like e-playa lag ad my other websites were coming up at the time.

They might want to look at the load balancing on the servers and see what's going on.

Servers? You really think there's more than one?

I'm at work and talking in Sprint-speak. Sorry, it just came out that way when I typed it. Free association of thoughts while typing can be dangerous.

hey gang:

Thanks for the feeback. I was unaware of the "too many connections" problem and we'll fix that. Right now this app shares the server with our mail server, which processes more spam than Hormel. Sometimes this may impact the response time, but it's usually "bursty". Don't fret!! We're working on moving the mail to another dedicated server. This should help. Please keep in mind, this is a brand new system and we're monitoring it.

Hi all, this is a blatant crossthread attempt to push certain crossthread irritants to the bottom of the pile.

I understand your frustration, Chimp. As soon as we have the guidelines posteed, we will be able to handle the crossposters.

That said, there's no reason to push anything to the top of the feedback forums, as no one is crossposting here.
