    I could barely post a comment in the breaker (4th set). And when the match was over i had to wait like 3 long hours before i could log in again. Very frustrating.
    So admin please do something about it before sunday otherwise this site 'd be unaccessible (especially the live comments thread).

    A suggestion: don't allow guests to access the site til the match over.

    Thanx in advance.:)

    While this probably is the wrong forum to post this, but I had the same problems. I could easily get to www.tennis-warehouse.com, but when I clicked on "message board" I could not get on the forum or only after waiting for minutes.

    Please do NOT upgrade the server.

    In-house servers are so passe.

    Today, it is about cloud computing. Buy compute cycles from Amazon, Microsoft etc and you will pay for what you use. When there is a peak demand, you will get more resources.

    Migrate to the cloud. That is where the action is. Personal computers and servers are yesterday's news, like Djokovic.

    The entire last few days have been a mess.

    Server is constantly stalling/slow or whatever the c0ckup is that is causing all this.

    Something is clearly wrong, that much is a certainty.

    Yeah, you're right. Given the match up, it would be too bad for all the hatred and insults that can't be posted...:lol:

    If Federer wins, TW will implode, the traffic will be ridiculous.

    It isn't going to happen, there hasn't even been a notice that the forum will be down for a while which would be the case if servers were switched.

    On the Sunday, just enjoy the match. No need to be posting simultaneously :)

    LOL.

    What's more they are using a software that runs on PHP which is a resource hog. I could write the software for them in Lisp or Cobol and then it would run with 10,000 concurrent users on an iPad. It would take me a 100 years to write it, though, so don't hold your breath, Đoković.

    The message boards aren't on the same server as the regular site I don't think. This style of message boards is popular around small and medium communities and I've seen it before. And an update won't just happen overnight, that stuff takes time

    The system went slow and confused because the *******s were cheering for Federer.
