I know this isn't supposed to be posted here, but yesterday (3/15) 749 people visited the finheaven message boards, which is a new record!

Is that why no one could get on the board last night and this morning?

Started last night at about 11:00! was down all night and this morning...maybe because of record numbers of users?? Would be angry except it's free so I can't complain! Figures it happened just when we signed Boston!

I could get on but it was very buggy. Looks like they need to either upgrade their server package soon or figure out what's causing stuff to slow down.

Thanks #80, it had to have been the record setting amount of people using the site. Can you believe it's off season and the site is going crazy like this? Major tribute to A.J. The kid ROCKS!!!! Best Football Website in the country IMO!!!!

David Boston's huge arms were clogging their internet pipe. :)

Seriously, I think it was just EVERYONE trying to log on at the same time to hear the details of the Boston signing... I'm sure the board will be back to normal in the next few days.

now if you think about it, record of 749, but how many people couldnt log on? I'd say minimum 50, more around 100-150. This site is definitely blossoming...although I havnt been around long so maybe this is normal

I wasn't able to get onto the site until around 1:30. I tried going on a few times this morning, and it said that the site didn't exist.

I'm having no problem loading tons of other sites and I have a cable modem. But, it seems like the site has slowed down again, though not to the degree it did the other night.

Has anyone else noticed this? Is there an explanation? Just curious.

The board is fine for me now. Lots of problems in the morning.

There have been major DDoS attacks going around.. Yesterday the Hosting Comapny I work for was attacked and also one of our competitors was attacked also we were both down for about 4 hours.. and they are #1 over all and we are #5 over all .. finheavens ISP is probably being hammered as well with DDoS attackes :(

I'm in Hamilton, Ontario, and logged on about 1pm with no problem but the board is definately much slower than normal.

This morning couldn't get on finheaven at all, but I could get everywhere else I tried. It must be above finheaven where the DOS occurred. I too am on cable. now though it is better just a little slow.

We've been having some issues lately. And last night those issues seemed to come to a head as soon as the news of David Boston broke. :( (imagine that).

As I'm sure you can imagine, EVERYONE was heading over to Finheaven for a Boston Tea Party last night around 9:45 PM. :) And while we did set a record for traffic yesterday (for about the 7th time this month), we would have annihalted it had the site not run into problems. Unfortunately, fate had other plans. :(

Ironically, we were planning to shut the site down at 3 AM Eastern to perform some upgrades. We would have only been down a few minutes. Obviously things didn't happen that way.

Anyway, mitigating circumstances prevented both A.J. and I from spending any significant time on the site today (hence the long "delay"). But we were able to find a serious error around noon today. And once we corrected it, the site "magically" reappeared. ;)

As for the sluggishness this afternoon today, I really wish I could comment on it. But the truth is.....once we got the site back up, I wasn't able to surf it because I was....gasp......at work. And my boss tends to get annoyed when finds me not working. lol. Anyway, things seem to be ok right now. They are for me anyway. We'll see what happens.

Again, this couldn't have happened at a worse time. Normally one of us is available all the time to tend to things like this. But today was a rare exception. And I can assure you that it was killing me. I literally had to p*ss off my boss to get the site back up.

We will be further upgrading the site in the coming weeks. These upgrades should improve the speed of things, not to mention make things easier on the administrative side. So just hang in there. :)

My deepest apologies for the inconvenience, and deepest gratitude for your understanding. Thank you again for making FinHeaven what it is today. You won't regret it.
