Tuesday Tip...That Darn 504
It would be wonderful if when this is posted the 504 popups that we’ve been getting are a thing of the past.
However, if that is not the case, this is what I (and others) have been doing to prevent punching or screaming expletives at your screen.
504 Gateway Time-out
I won’t sugarcoat it...it’s been difficult (that’s putting it mildly) making comments as well as responding to comments made on the site. And unless you’ve not been paying attention, we’ve had many members missing in action.
I can’t address what’s being done to remedy the situation...when I was in college my peers walked around with boxes of keypunch cards and had to vie for time on the computer.
But, I do know that things are being done. From what I understand, the task is monumental.
If you’re still of a mind to comment, here’s a workaround. (don’t you hate that word?!)
After you comment on a post and the infamous 504 pops up, wait and press the Refresh button on your browser.
Count to 20...do your nails...check your email...grab a cup of coffee...whatever...but the page should refresh to the post with your comment!
I owe a lot to this community so I’m going to still be here commenting and refreshing. Hope to see you here too.
