    CP wiki timeouts

    Anyone else experiencing constant timeouts or blank pages when trying to access or edit at http://cpwiki.sourceforge.net/ ?
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    I'm getting slow access (ok) and connection resets.

    Thanks rob. It's been like that for me for a few days already. Just needed some confirmation.

    It's been happening to me, too. I have to load every page twice -- for some reason, it always seems to work the second time around. I just thought it was my connection as usual, though.

    Yep, definitely a problem with the site. I'm experiencing it too.

    However, It seems the project webservers are either 1. Slow or 2. Under extreme load. If anyone has hosting, perhaps they could host the wiki? Or we try and stick it out on sf.net?

    I have some hosting at theprogrammingsite.com. There's lots of space, over 4.5GB left I think, and tons of bandwidth (can't remember the exact numbers). The only thing is that board.theprogrammingsite.com, a message board, gets so much spam that I'm afraid some of it might carry over to the wiki. Believe me, we don't want that kind of spamming. We could try to keep the wiki and that board separate, but I think it would still happen. That's why I didn't mention my hosting at the beginning.

    But with the wiki being so slow, perhaps we should give it a try.

    Does anyone else have some free hosting space? I seem to remember jverkoey having a website where several CBoard users host sites . . . perhaps it could work?

    On the other hand, maybe we should just give sf a try for a while longer. Maybe it's a temporary problem -- it didn't do this at the begginning.

    I'm wanting to believe this is a temporary problem. I don't conceive sf as being constantly plagued by slowdowns. But they may be limiting traffic according to hits and we got the rotten end of the deal. You tried talking with them?

    It does annoy me some. But to be honest I did get used to it (btw, it was excellent yesterday. Not today anymore and I gave up on publishing boost.any for now)

    As for your site... dunno. If you don't announce it in any way on your forums... what kind of spam? Publicity and stuff or people actually trying to degrade your efforts?

    It's not network lag, it's server load lag -- specifically on the sf.net MySQL server.

    I'd say moving it to your site would be best, mainly due to the security issues, limitations and timeouts on sf.net. However, what sort of spam do you mean? 'Noobs'? Or robots?

    If it's either, restrict the wiki so no-one can create accounts (the sysop has to do it for them).

    If dwks' hosting does not work out I could lend a hand with my VPS.

    It's porn, and drugs advertisments, and other really not very nice stuff. It's posted by humans, not "robots", who register even if you throw up roadblocks like entering an . . . alphanumeric sequence. I can't remember the exact name.

    If it's either, restrict the wiki so no-one can create accounts (the sysop has to do it for them).
    That seems unnecessarily restrictive to me . . . I think it would just be best if someone else could host it. I mean, we could try it and see what happens. And not linking to the wiki from the board would be a good idea, but probably not enforceable.

    How is theprogrammingsite? Speed -- the theprogrammingsite.com server is very fast as far as I can tell. I can upload a few megabytes (xuni) in twenty seconds, if I have a fast connection this end. Reliability -- even though they guaranteed 99.95&#37; uptime or some such, it has gone down occasionally in the past. No more than CBoard, though, which as I'm sure everyone knows goes down every once in a while too.

    Oh, and the name fits too. Though it's pretty long -- cpwiki.theprogrammingsite.com/Void_main . . . .

    Oh. Well then, I think we should move the wiki to your domain.

    Ah well, I'll make you a moderator of board.theprogrammingsite.com and see how long you last, deleting posts every hour or whatever.

    That bad, uh? I haven't been there to for a long time. But sure can lend an hand on that, if you need one. Just don't mind if I don't do anything else. I'm not suited for moderator stuff. I lose my temper easily and like to keep it that way

    Nah, it's okay -- thanks for the offer though. I just mentioned it as a reason not to host the wiki there.
