No Proxy Errors! No Bad Gateways! The New Servers Seem to Be Working!

Real Estate Agent with Helping people in transition 210155

Well, as one of our fearless leaders, Bob Stewart, has Kudos to Bob Stewart, and the rest of the ActiveRain staff for listening to our cries for help...and worked to rectify the problem!promised, the new servers are in...and seem to be working!
When I logged on this morning, ActiveRain opened right up... with surprisingly fast speed.

I was able to make my comments, read posts from some of my favorite bloggers, and, best of all, I was able to do it all without any of the dreaded proxy errors or bad gateways we've been experiencing while AR went through another growth spurt!

Please send kudos to Bob and the rest of the ActiveRain staff for hearing our pleas for help and for working towards making ActiveRain, once again, the place we've all come to know and love.

Let's noit sing all the praises too soon. I have already encountered the Apaches with red hats, gateways that are bad, that dreaded proxy error, and a bit slow to respond. Maybe a call to Terminex to get the 'bugs' out is in order.

Haven't had the issues, but, there have been some pretty slow connections that made me think the issues might be still around.

Margo - Plop! Plop! Fizz! Fizz!???

Debi - Is that why you've not responded to my Google Groups email? And, yes, Bob "the Server" Stewart does look dapper!

Kristin - Uh! Oh! What did you do now Kristin?!!!

Lenn - Seems like there's been a vast improvement here in my end of town.

Lenn - It's Kristin's fault!

John - According to Lee and Pamela, the servers didn't go into place last night as planned. They've been rescheduled for tonight instead.

Kristen - "      "     "      "

Steve - "      "      "     "

Lee & Pamela - Thanks guys! I guess this post was premature as I was having no issues today at all!

Rebecca - See Lee and Pamela's comment above (comment #9).

I had the same experience, Craig, and immediately sent Bob an email to thank him.  I am sure by now you know that it was delayed until tonight and he warned me I would have problems during the day.  Sure enough we all have.  But, as I mentioned in another post, it must be psychological.

I love the picture of Bob serving.  That is a great creation.  But, as much as I am keeping a good thought about it, I am still getting proxy errors and bad gateways.  It may take some time for the new servers to work. I certainly hope they kick in soon.

Craig, lets not get ahead of ourselves Lenn, I'm still getting those errors several last night and today, although, I was able to post a couple of comments this morning fairly quickly and thought all was right with the world...and then crash...error after error.  This afternoon the process does seem to be better though.

Wish that it were so, but it's hard posting today. Still--I know the fix is coming and will be here soon.

Craig, I've gotta tell ya, when I want a smile, I know your posts won't disappoint--you're cartoons are so very clever, guaranteed to make me laugh, yet they have good points, too. Well done!

Chris - Me too my friend! Me too!

Nick - It's only going to get better Nick. I'm pretty certain the folks at AR wouldn't have spent the money to upgrade the system if it wasn't a true upgrade. Hang in there!

Lottie - The fix is in! We should be good to go once the bugs and kinks have been worked out. At least I hope so! And, thank you for your kind words Lottie. It's comments like yours that make my efforts seem worthwhile. If my readers are smiling, then I'm doing something right!

Terrie - Bummer indeed! I've had some pretty good success today. I hope tomorrow's better for you my friend.
