So Clam- you talking Linux at me? I woulda thought the gnomes would be friendlier
I lean KDE personally with either kubuntu (ubuntu/KDE) or PC-BSD (freebsd/KDE), currently the former. What's your flavor? I haven't looked into the new Unity interface yet so I can't comment on it but if you have an opinion please share. I never had anything against gnome, just prefer KDE since it does resemble winduhs which I have to use sometimes so it makes the transition easier.

Oh yeah, linux rocks

Also vcookie still up for grabs

I have been away for a few days so have loads of threads to catch up on. Have noticed that they are running much quicker, the only thread that was slow was a really long one where the smelly old fucker was shutting it down. So as requested by the aforementioned wanker, I would like to report a marked improvement.

Well, that is good to hear you old phlatulant phallus phucker and tugger of the camembert foreskin. I assume the improvement is in your wrist action?

I think our uber-mistress has given the server a slap or two around the chops.
Feel free to report any noticable difference in speed - or not as the case may be.

I started to panic today, when I saw the site down. I wondered if Jesus had returned and God would be showing up at my house to demand my worship. I even considered worshiping him for a moment, then thought to myself, "Why should I worship that fucking wanker if he took down RA? Fuck him! Mother fucker! Put my goddamn Jesus pictures back on the Internet, and then I'll think about singing some songs about you and shit!" Then I remembered that there is no God, was no Jesus, and that the site was likely being overhauled with new gears and switches and such. Whew! I'm just glad it is all over.

it DOES seem faster!

One of the most irrational of all the conventions of modern society is the one to the effect that religious opinions should be respected....That they should have this immunity is an outrage. There is nothing in religious ideas, as a class, to lift them above other ideas. On the contrary, they are always dubious and often quite silly.

It's so painful, when one pays for something, to admit that a free version might have been a better choice.

That said, the site really is devastatingly slow and I would like to suggest that we switch to reddit/hackernews software in the interest of saving/resurrecting the community.

The application is free and past cost is past.

I'm still getting variable speeds but tending to the 'very slow'. Other sites I visit are ok, which suggests it's not connection that's the problem. Not being a big enough geek, how can one tell if it's software, server capacity/speed or sheer volume of data that's causing the problem?

I don't know what you are all talking about, I've never had problems. With the site that is.

May be it's something to do with Greece defaulting.

not having any problems at all - apart from the odd episode of posts going into the nether black hole regions of moderation

Exactly what I am experiencing.

I hear you. I think it's probably the volume of the data, but we could mothball the old stuff - application and all - without removing it, for people with the patience and interest to peruse it and then redirect the forum traffic to a new installation.

They say restaurants and bars that want to stay in business should redecorate every five years. We're due anyway.

I suggest you send any ideas for betterment to Chris via PMs, as I know she has this forum hosted with other stuff she uses and I don't know how splitting off could affect her.

You're welcome. I took so long because I'm lazy.

I can delete this thread now?

Hope: the feeling that you have that the feeling that you have is temporary.
