Major connection issues
Posted by Bakster on Monday, November 6, 2023 11:07 AM

It started on the weekend. Two devices won't connect or drop out and my desktop takes forever to connect. It was very difficult to reach this point and I had to reload pages several times. Typing this is glitchy too.


If you folks don't hear from me anymore-- you will know why.

The site appeared down the whole weekend.  Last week I lost two posts as I was typing them.  Something went *Bloop* and they just disappeared.  The pop-up ads ate them.

Page load time is over 11 seconds.  I saw lot's of timeouts over the weekend.  No doubt some of the downstream ad networks are causing issues - finescale content represents less that 1/4 of whats being requested/rendered.

Ditto Saturday and Sunday.  Just got a Timeout error.

Had to cull the url down to "finescale dot com" to get here.

It's way snappier now.  Way better than it was before the weekend actually. Yes
