I was just able to login on my phone after getting the site unavailable earlier. Looks like it self resolved.

In Desktop View, don't see the two "Show updated posts since your last visit" and "View latest replies to your posts" search options in the upper menu.  Do see them in the Mobile View upper-right menu drop down list.  Not sure if a glitch on my my own machine.

Folks, we have been having some intermittent issues with the site crashing a few times throughout the day. I have performed a major OS upgrade on the server, please let me know if you see any issues. Hopefully this will resolve the crashing issue. (And not introduce some other issue!)

Glad to see the site back up - I was undergoing withdrawal symptoms.

Couldn't even TRACERT earlier this evening...

Folks,

Sorry about the site issues, we encountered severe performance issues of an unknown source. It did not appear to be related to a spike in site traffic, but most likely a server software or configuration issue. I have upgraded the server and refreshed all software packages to see if this will resolve the issue. As I'm typing this, the server's performance is creeping up once again, so I am not convinced the issue is resolved. I may have to rebuild the server from scratch, but don't likely have the time to do so today. Will keep you updated as I learn more.


Cheers
Mike

I believe we have finally reached a level of stability. Server is rebuilt and many changes made, so please let me know when you find things not working.

Thanks for your patience all, I know it has been a frustrating few days!

Thanks all. Still making some tweaks and fixes as time allows, but I am feeling comfortable we are "stable" for the time being. Appreciate all of your patience and support.

SHIFT F5 should turn them out.

Folks, another system upgrade complete, which will bring us a bit more server power for the next 3 years. Please report any issues, thanks!

Mike,...very minor but if it reset then maybe other things??   Milpoints for the last 30 days and last 365 days are identical.

Believe that change was made months (years?) ago, as the MilPoints backwards glance now only goes back 30 days to reduce server load.  (Or maybe I made that up; my memory is not what once it was)

Haven't looked a MilPoints, but today I used the quote, Font Face, Font Size and Change Colour functions and they all worked well.
