Ⓐ Website Optimization Ⓐ

Posted 8 months ago on Feb. 13, 2014, 1:29 p.m. EST by jart (1145) from New York, NY

I added some optimizations to the website. Is it going faster for you guys? Are there any bugs?

Seems faster. Thanks, jart, for all you do and all you have done to keep this forum going.

Something wrong with the forum here. Can't make comments on some threads. There are long intervals between comments indicate others having same problem I am guessing. I may have found a window in making this comment @ 1.25 EST 15th Feb. The opposite of ''optimisation'' seems to have occurred !!!

I tried to make this comment :

''The Problem is Civil Obedience'' - Howard Zinn :

''What we are trying to do, I assume, is really to get back to the principles and aims and spirit of the Declaration of Independence. This spirit is resistance to illegitimate authority and to forces that deprive people of their life and liberty and right to pursue happiness, and therefore under these conditions, it urges the right to alter or abolish their current form of government-and the stress had been on abolish. But to establish the principles of the Declaration of Independence, we are going to need to go outside the law, to stop obeying the laws that demand killing or that allocate wealth the way it has been done, or that put people in jail for petty technical offenses and keep other people out of jail for enormous crimes. My hope is that this kind of spirit will take place not just in this country but in other countries because they all need it. People in all countries need the spirit of disobedience to the state, which is not a metaphysical thing but a thing of force and wealth. And we need a kind of declaration of interdependence among people in all countries of the world who are striving for the same thing.''

@ jart : BIG Connection Problems !!! See my other reply to you below and Renneye's response too and a few more days of this and The Forum will die !! We all know that you are busy n' all but the forum needs (even more of) your care and attention because essentially, your optimisations as per this forum-post seem to have resulted in the total opposite of ''optimization'' & this has been going on for well over 24 hrs w.e.f. 24th-26th Feb.'14 and it takes many, Many, MANY 'refreshes' to even connect & then the connection still goes down .. HELP and are the mods and are admin aware of this state of affairs here ! PS : It took me the best part of 15 minutes to make this comment.Thanx for your urgent attention asap.

Fyi : ''501 Bad Gateway'' / ''501 Gateway Timeout'' still intermittently coming up [1.30pm 14th March]. There was an hour or so that it worked ... then didn't ... now working again .. but I'm just NOT feeling confident that the obvious problems are permanently fixed.

There are connection issues to this site especially with the 'ping back' from the site [25th Feb.'14]. This is still a very important and active face of OWS on the web. Ongoing issues of co-option by DNC plants and others - we can all handle but tech issues we can't. I keep getting : ''No Data Received - Unable to load the web page because the server sent no data. Error code : ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE'' - when I've been trying to connect here & if and when I do get this comment and message through, it will have been after 20+ attempts to do so. Your attention will be required and appreciated & btw also fyi :

Thanks Shadz! I've been having the same connection problems from Ontario, Canada. Exact same messages.

Been trying to get on the site, off and on all day, and only managed to connect twice, for a moment or two each time.

[-] 5 points by shadz66 (19985) 8 months ago

Can't think of a better way to kill the forum & thanx for confirming that & also fyi :

I'm still having trouble connecting & need to keep refreshing to connect, hmmm !

''New War Budget And Strategy Announced By Obama Team'', by Bruce K. Gagnon :

''We will see an expansion of US "hidden" wars in the near future and the Obama budget reflects this reality. While Hagel wants to pare back the size of the active-duty military by 13% and the reserves by 5% in coming years he would boost the size of Special Operations forces by about 6%. The plan is to add more than 3,000 personnel to the kinds of special ops forces teams that reportedly killed Osama bin Laden in Pakistan.'' Hmmmm and -

The ''501 Gateway Error'' seems to have gone & The OWS.org Forum is back !!! Hallelujah !! Sadly this has happened a lot lately ... could / should it be reset to an older, more stable 'restore point' (u can tell I'm not a techie) - or has the forum been under attack ?! In any case, thanx for help here, tech peeps :-)

Mornin' jart!

Just checking in to say that I was able to get through with this post from Ontario, Canada at 10:45 am EST, March 14, 2014, during what has obviously been a huge connection issue experienced by this site. "501 Gateway" is the message I was receiving when I tried to get onto the site.

It's possible there are bigger issues (internet wide), as I was having a problem getting onto many different sites yesterday, and that problem has ceased as of now as well.

Hello??? HELLO!!! Testing - tap tap - Mic check - HELLO - testing 1 2 3 ................. damn 504 gateway time outs

Well I will assume ( i know I know one shouldn't ) that we are back on and live.

Apparently - well I was told - that the site was moved and that it took longer than expected. How many miles do you figure it was moved on foot? Anyway looks like it made it.

Damn - I just wish that there was a way to let people know what is going on - prior to the fact. Ah well perhaps someday technology will come up with something.
