    Lol yep I just can't imagine Howard pulling his hair out over something like this. Every site goes down at some point. I like both HoFo and WA :).

    It's possible he may be upgrading the board's underlying software.

    Frankly, I don't even look at HoFo anymore (or if I do, it's very rare). Some of the posters over there are just out of hand.

    It is still not stable. It is very slow now. There are database problems. Hopefully by tomorrow it will be ok.

    Problems again right now, what vBulletin version is WA on? HoFo's version hasn't been changed in the 18 months since the forums still have the same appearance and features.

    Major upgrades don't take this long. It must be an unforeseen problem that occurred.

    I joined this forum and Howard about the same time. I am here at least once a day. Have not been there since I came back from Vacation, a week ago.

    I think WA is 3.0 and HoFo is 2.0.

    HoFo has been slow for months, but the last few days it has been impossible. Honestly, the downfall seems to coincide with those annoying MSN Search ads. Perhaps it is just a coincidence, but those ads suck either way.

    Very true but you can find a wealth of really good info there if you search through all the BS. I still only visit HoFo about once a month and I'm on WA every day I work (ie have internet access.)

    It is obvious to me that when HoFo is down somehow all the sudden traffic increases here. ;)

    Hofo is becoming infuriating. Yeah... get a new server already. If it's not working properly, they shouldn't bring it back up, just to go down again!!! aaahhh!!! :censored:

    Same here, taking 1 to 2 minutes for each page to load reminds me of dial up.
