Server change....
 
David, I know how annoying I can be, but this time, it grabs my attention more severly.


That mexican server has to go. I don't know how many times have I got timeouts, server crashes, downtimes and all that crap. One day, that server will eventually catch fire, and bye-bye data!

In a server room, they must have the room secured, air filtered, air conditioned and not ANY SINGLE dust particle. They don't do it, as it is revelant. They overheat. They have problems with bad hardware.

Change it before it's too late.

The number of dots are the number representing how many timeouts I got on that thread.

Why don't you get one a bit closer to home, say, in London? Something like fasthosts or something..

The maintenance is crappy in Mexico. Texas looks around the same. If you look, they don't really have a great clean environement.

I havent gotten a timeout in a long time, But i agree taking the server of the rack and dusting it off and rebooting it after shutting it donw might do some wonders! as well as unplug and then replug in the wires might help also defragment the server, We should also archive old posts like posts that are 1 or more years old they should be taken out and archived.

1.Turn off
2.Un plug all sires
3.Dust off
4. Wait half an hour or so!
5.plug server back in and turn it on
6.Archive old posts!
7.Defragment
8.Restart one last time


I know that would take a while but hey it might help some how right?

Doesn't matter if it's in Mexico or Texas, if it doesn't work well then it doesn't work well. We could use a server with a lot less downtime and no timeouts.

Yeah sure I'll take a look. When I moved to layered they had the best rep in most hosting forums I went to so thats what I based my decision on
