It seem that often on Sunday evenings (My time zone DST) when I set my browser to check out the latest buzz on ocPortal's Forum I get a long stall that ends up in an error or stack trace and I am unable to open up the ocPortal site for hours or loooonger.

Does anyone else have this happening to them?

I don't know what DST is but the staff are on GMT (UST if you want to be politically correct), and when their server bombs at two or three in the morning, their time, I don't expect anybody is awake to fix it.

I, too, am on GMT and I usually switch off when that happens to me as, apart from tweaking the site, there isn't much in the way of feedback from these forums, and one may as well go to bed … zZz zZz zZz

Take my advice. I'm not using it!

DST= Daylight Saving Time.

I wouldn't expect that someone is going to get up at O'dark oclock and fix it so I can read the Forums but I would think if it is happening, over and over again …somethings wrong? well anyway I'm mentioning it.

I suppose this some kind of strategy I could adopt although bedtime here is like 8 hours behind the home base for ocPortal in Sheffield so 6pm Sunday nite here is 2am Monday morning there.

We've had a lot of hack attacks on the site (by bots) recently, and there has been a bug whereby it eats up a lot of server resources when the specific kind of hack that has been attempted happens. It's resolved now though.


Become a fan of ocPortal on Facebook or add me as a friend. Add me on on Twitter.
Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Glad to hear it's fixed.
