There's going to be a major software update coming as well which should increase overall performance, for everyone but Chip.

Careful now, we don't want Chip making his own bike forums.

Will this software update improve things for those of us on this side of the world? I was told once long ago that the reason I was having so many difficulties with this site is because of an asian server that doesn't work very well.

I havne't seen the dreaded database error so far today (being 1045am in the UK) so hopefully that's fixed. I have found several times that the "loading" icon in Firefox just sits and spins while other sites load fine.

I do not know, Machka.....hopefully would be the only response I can give here?

I'm getting them as well, RTdub. Bear with us. As you saw from Ibobi's response, a fix is in the works, and meantime, this glitch seems to be limited to the morning here.

Knowing the powers to be are working on this, I'm sure things will be good ASAP.
Having issues here again, just saying.
I'm running Win7, Firefox11, and the issues are random.

Yep ... as evening comes on, and we settle in to have a browse after work ........ the Database Errors return! Every other click.

They started about 7 pm here and haven't let up for the past 2 hours.

Bets on whether or not I can post this???

And I know it's extremely frustrating. It is for me, too, believe me.

You mean like when you implemented this version of the software? Based on that fiasco, I'll probably be the only person who can still use the site!

oh lookie, more database errors. Be very grateful that you don't work for me.

197 refreshes before I got to page 2 of this thread. Knowing that someone may be working on it is one thing, but is it a possibility that we could get an "official" statement on what the issue is along with some projection of the anticipated fix?

Sorry everybody, looks like I jinxed it all. Been getting database errors for a good part of the afternoon (UK time).

Well you know it's really due to the fact that the internet swirls the opposite way down under.

And we are back up, as you can see. We were offline fpor repairs. Hopefully, most of the problems were addressed.

Not only have had no db errors (in last 10 mins of being on) but the site is loading much faster for me. It had been hanging badly at times, for months.

Thanks, Tom!
