    Site trouble

    Hey guys, I've been working around the clock trying to recover from our being swallowed alive on our free day. I'm building a new server cluster that will allow us to scale better in the future, but for now, I'm making sure the site is back up and running like normal.

    Could you report any issues you see as you use the site - does it still timeout for you, does it stall on ordering, etc. And tell me? The more I know the better,

    Thanks for the help everyone!

    Thanks for your efforts BillNye, I still had problems with timing out about 2 hours ago and have only just logged back in so I will let you know how things go.

      Thanks BillNye for all your hard work! Yes I've had trouble all day. Finally got to order today's deal. It kept timing me out until just now. Same on the forum too. Trying to help not complain.LOL

        Me too. It goes to a page that says the server on this site is down. I get off and come back in a few minutes then it does it again. It looks like your going to need a mega server with all the new people on the site. lol Good job at trying to keep it online though.

          I know you know it hasn't worked for two days. I must have missed one heck of a daily deal. Oh, well, life goes on.

          Thanks for working so hard on the site, Bill. We all appreciate it!

            I knew you were a busy little bee! I too appreciate all that you do and being an IT Director's widow know all that goes on when I get a message that says, "we're cleaning up our server ...." and I can't log on ... I'm just so impressed that it didn't take a WEEK like most sites, to get back here! GREAT work kiddo!

              It seems to be working like normal now. Even on my Mac.

              Truly amazing how far MSQC and the Quilter's Forum has come in less than two years!
              Keep up the great work!

                  If this posts, it will be the first time I've been able to all day. The page loads but then I can't get anywhere else or even sign out of the site.

                    I've been bounced out all day but I was very glad you'd managed to patch everything back up because I've been sitting in the accident and emergency department for 5 hours and you kept me sane (and entertained the two guys I was with).

                        jrchapman what happened?

                        And thanks everyone, glad to hear it's moving again for everyone. I still cannot believe how many people hit the site in the last two days, you'd think we were on the Today show I'm currently taking the site from our two servers to seven. Expect major improvements in speed in the next two weeks. Not to mention the new products. Sarah has been busy buying and we have some awesome new stuff going up (especially now that she can get to the site )

                        Thanks again!

                              I was on a night out for a friend's birthday and one of the guys who has had heart problems in the past started having chest pains. It was nothing to worry about in the end but it's better to be safe than sorry. A&E on a Saturday night is always fun - lots of drunks and tramps!

                              Can't wait to see what's coming next!
