I've had no issues other than the shout box since I updated my shortcuts to www.vintagehifi.audio/index.php, no http.


I've had luck with adding https. Why not use a secure connection since it was added?


Thank you.   That hadn't occurred to me.   Thanks MB for all of your efforts.

The shoutbox has been temporarily removed to get a baseline server usage profile. The shoutbox can add considerable load since it is constantly polling the server for updates.

It's deliberate.

You know, I often got annoyed when something that I felt was useful and should be part of the permanent record here was relegated to the shout box, but now that it's gone I miss it more than I thought I would.   Especially for CL links.

Ditto.  And, sometimes it made me laugh, which since I usually check it early in the day was a great start to the morning.

Perhaps we should start a random BS thread until the ShoutBox is back up?

I spent ten years as a software test engineer, if thereís anything I can do to help test anything, Iím up for helping out.

Al will turn it back on soon and see if it behaves.  If it starts sucking up CPU cycles again, the box may need to be shut down indefinitely. He can only allocate so much time to troubleshooting the forum widgets (a side effect of having a fulltime job).  But I agree,  miss the shoutbox, though not because of the Craigslist pointers since I am nowhere near PA.

You don't have to be nearby to appreciate some of the more idiotic listings.

Funny CL

What would be the cost if we hired a hosting service, or whatever the appropriate company would be called,  to set up / maintain our site including the shout box?

Yes, a worthy read regardless of geographic position.
