Sorry I have to say this. But FR has become nearly unusable these days.
You used to have a feeling that within 30 seconds to a minute, your page would be resolved and loaded.
But no more. I don’t know how many times lately, I have hit refresh or picked a new thread only to wait and wait and wait and then I give up and go to another site.
The powers that be recommend limiting your window options to twenty. My reply is, if that’s the problem, the just taking the option away and making it twenty should be the solution.
And I know about DOS attacks – they can easily be filtered by a front-end server – so that shouldn’t be a problem.
Anyways, whatever it is, it’s getting series. And Hugh!
I am ongoing contributed(sic), doesn’t give me better, more consistent access or info.
To: djf“You used to have a feeling that within 30 seconds to a minute, your page would be resolved and loaded.”I do this kinda stuff for a living. A lightweight site like this should load in ONE second, tops.
To: djfIt seems to be sporadic. I wanted to post a thread this morning, and gave up and went and did some errands. I was able to easily post the thread when I returned.
I agree with you.
Sadly, FR continues doing the same “maintenance” over & over & over and expecting different results. Einstein had a name for that behaviour….but I digress.
It’s waaaay past time to consider a qualified outside IT consultant to correctly analyze the problem and begin to move the site in a direction to bring long term stability to the site.
If the “same old, same old” continues, freepers will begin leaving due to the inability to run a basic website.
I hope an outside IT consultant arrives soon…..

Thank you, Jim Robinson, and all who provide support for this free conservative news site. Pay no heed to these negative naybobs(sic) of negativism who appear to be nothing but entitled leeches on your coattails.
I have problems here with how slow it is , but if Jim pulls this site for good, what are we going to do then???
FR is nearly unusable
Not a Freeper per Se, but I noticed that the funds raising marathon, is perpetual. One is over, the next one is right behind it.
It is a tragedy that I can’t come here as much and need to go to other places where we likemindeds are, but it’s not the same. Impossible in the evenings to post or read here. And none of the other sites beg for money and they work just fine. Frustrating because FR was always my favorite. It’s like a best friend dying. Clearly there is absolutely no correlation between donating and the site being reliable so I don’t see the point in donating. Which ALSO makes me sad. It didn’t have to go this way.

I think the freepathon progress bar sucks up a lot of bandwidth.
Time for one more – how about:

Fox News’ Eric Bolling sent pictures of male genitalia to at least three female colleagues

Fox News’ Eric Bolling sent pictures of male genitalia to at least three female colleagues, according the Huffington Post. The website cited 14 unnamed sources in its report, including the women who allegedly received the lewd text messages.
The Huffington Post quoted a Fox News spokesperson saying “We were just informed of this and plan to investigate the matter.”A former commodities trader and CNBC anchor, Bolling has worked at Fox News and Fox Business since 2007. He currently serves as host of news show “The Specialists” on Fox News. Bolling’s contract with Fox News was renewed in June.

From the NY Daily News:
The women — made up of his former and current network co-workers — were able to identify Bolling as the sender behind the lewd photos because they recognized his phone number, according to the news site.One of the recipients said she told Bolling to never send her such messages again, but didn’t receive a reply.
His lawyer’s response is weirdly worded, at least it seems to me:
“Mr. Bolling recalls no such inappropriate communications, does not believe he sent any such communications and will vigorously pursue his legal remedies for any false and defamatory accusations that are made,” he told HuffPost.
Sounds like Bolling was using a “burner” phone for some action on the side.
To: LadyBuzzThey don’t actually say they were his. Could be a gorilla’s, donkey’s, . or other miscellaneous download.
