the other day i had a message in a white box at the top of the ss screen with a paragraph explaining that the web people say ss is using to much and they need to increase. at a higher cost to the site. and that the hat would probably need to be passed. i just responded that im in of course. i added that site adm should try to get the ss logo back like the horse head with a wrench. now is it possible this was a errant message from the previous web issues? :? :? :? :? :cheers:

Hotflash, yeah I remember that message also about the server storage being maxed out. Prolly once a day for the last week or more my puter has timed out waiting to load the index page or clicking a sub form. Hasn't been for long though. A few minutes later seems all is good again till next time? I'm sure John is working on a solution for the Seattle Syndrome. 10# of crap in a 5# bag :(

It's an old message that is still presented any time the servers throw a certain type of error.

Usually clears up within a minute or two.

here is a copy of what i see every so often , 503 - Unavailable We are experiencing tehnical difficulties Our site is getting too big and pulling too much resources on our shared server account. So our web host is throttling our account and shaking me down to upgrade to a different plan which is going to cost more money. Just like with a cell phone, we went over our data limit. I am trying to work things out with the web hosting company and have everything running smooth soon. If I do have to upgrade to a more expensive plan, I will need to pass the hat and take up a collection. I'll let you know. Until then like they said in the TV business: PLEASE STAND BY And for fooks sake stop hitting refresh, that compounds the problem. :? :cheers:
