RS Has your Mudcat Access time changed? (6) RE: Has your Mudcat Access time changed? 17 Jul 97

Perhaps I will save Max Spiegel a few minutes, by posting the reply he sent me, on 29 June 97, to my e-mail enquiry about this issue:

[My enquiry:]

Hi, Don't know if it's only me, but lately, about 50% of the time I try to check out the Mudcat Discussion Forum or the DT Database, I get "timed out" - with the eventual reply "There was no response - the server could be down or not responding". Haven't had this problem with "deltablues" sites, only with the "onstagemedia" parts. (No problems with various other places I have been visiting either).

I was going to post a thread on the Discussion group asking if others have been having this problem, but I haven't been able to get there to do so!

Any comments or suggestions?

[Max's reply]:

We have been trying very hard to increase the reliability and access to the intelligent parts to the mudcat cafe. Funding is soon to be which will give us the opportunity to upgrade our connection. The popularity of this site sends our machines into a tizzy and frequently overwhelms them. The problem is on our side, and we are trying very hard to compensate. Sorry for any problems.

Max Spiegel
