I'm on my third or fourth day of getting "website not responding" almost every time I try to open a thread. No trouble browsing elsewhere. Is everyone getting this? If not, what sort of problem might I have?

I haven't been seeing a slow response lately at Mudcat. Do you have an adblocker or Ghostery installed? Sometimes they will stall a page loading because of ads. And the usual "clear your cache" may make a difference.

Yowza; I cleared most stuff from my cache, got in to a couple of threads, then couldn't even scroll the page without getting the "not responding". Went back and cleared passwords. Now I can get everything here fine, as long as I don't sign in.

I checked with Max, he's working on one of the servers. Be sure that you're going to https://mudcat.org and not trying to target a server in your URL. The specific computer names aren't a good way to get in.

Today, however, 'muddy' is no more help than 'awe.'

Here is my tale of woe:
I wanted to post about the amicus briefs the news agencies plan to file
in support of CNN's Jim Acosta,
whose press pass was revoked at the White House.

I attempted a Mudcat search on "Acosta"
and got "website not responding."

Have gone ahead and posted to "forked tongue" BS thread.
Then, I tried Joe Offer's frequent suggestion
and put "Acosta" into a filter search.

All that came up was,
20 Naked Pentecostals In A Pontiac.
Because some durned fool spelled it PentAcostAl.

For the time being, I seem to be able to find SOME things by Google, e.g.: Mudcat Ryans Pittmans will give me the Origins: Spanish Ladies thread. Not perfect, but better than nothing.

Thanks for the reminder SRS.

It's easy to take this free site for granted and grumble when it's not doing what we think it should.

I've made a small donation and hope it contributes in a small way to helping find a fix.

Clearly not a simple move.
We've had plenty of problems over the years but, given the time it's been off, it must be tricky or expensive (or both)

Actually, selfish of me,
but it is a relief to have this acknowledged.
For months I have been struggling with the search feature.
So I'm relieved to know that this is not all in my head.

I'm about stumped. I still have the same symptoms. Logged out, I can do anything but post in B.S.. Logged in, I'm lucky to get a look at one thread before I get the "not responding". I have to go away and come back just to have a chance to log out. I don't think the mudkitty wuvs me anymore. (No problems elsewhere on the internet.)

Shades of Hee Haw!

where, O! where are you tonight?
Why did you leave me here all alone?

I searched the world over
And I thought I found true love
You met another and
[BRONX CHEER]
you was gone.


And from this aisle of the market:
thanks be for server Muddy.

I got a little bollocking a few weeks back for pointing to a specific Mudcat server. I honestly didn't know I was doing anything wrong. I haven't done it since, though Safari defaulted to the server I wasn't supposed to use a couple of weeks ago. It's a bit weird is this. It's all a bit like eating the apple that Eve wasn't supposed to eat but without knowing why not. Why do the Mudcat powers that be leave the website so vulnerable? Not that it bothers me. I can always do a bit of gardening or go to see my old mum when the thing is down...

I don't understand the point, or the objection to, of 'pointing to ' specific servers. I arrive at 'Muddy' right now, on the odd few hours the site is working at all, more often than not it's 'service is unavailable', as it was for at least six hours just now (probably longer but I was still asleep then).

Because the server in question was the only one that was at all reliable just before I got my telling-off for using it, that's why. Somebody cleverer than me at these things told us in a post how to pick specific servers, so that's what I did, not realising that I was threatening the whole database by so doing.

Mudcat is designed to direct calls for info to a server, so it balances the load. Everybody hitting one server will un-balance things. I'm not sure if the load-balancing thing is effective when there's on one named server working, but I don't generally used a named server because Max asked us not to...obviously, not publicly enough.

When everything's working, picking a specific server only ever makes the control freak in us happy.
