Had some timeouts this morning.
Not sure what it might have been. I have a monitoring service that monitors the site 24x7 it does a check from over 10 global locations every 5 minutes and pages me if any of the locations fail the check. Might have been a local thing in your area.
fyi- I had to restart the database engine, brief outage sorry
ok few moments of downtime today due to a strange issue with my database backups. Every few days I take an offsite backup of just the forum database which results in a 140+meg zip file (unzipped it's over 500meg). I have never had trouble doing this but tonight for some reason while the backup is downloading the site becomes non-responsive, backup completes and the site responds again. I'm asking some guys at the vbulletin site if they've ever seen this.

I've been having trouble getting onto APUG for a couple weeks now from my home in NJ (using Time Warner cable). Neither my desktop nor my wife's laptop was able to hit the site. Whenever we tried, 3 different web browsers popped up a dialog box saying (paraphrased) "too many redirects for this url". Interestingly, my wife and her laptop went to a conference for a few days and she was able to connect to APUG without problems via the hotel's wifi, yet I still couldn't connect from home. Today, I am at our weekend house in upstate NY using Mid-Hudson Cable to connect, and all is fine. I expect I will still find I cannot connect from my NJ home when I go back there tomorrow. Any suggestions for remedying the problem are greatly appreciated.
By the way, when I connected with Opera, I could actually watch the endless looping of the page loading slowly, then when the status bar filled, starting right over again. Accoding to Google, this error typically occurs due to bad code.
Thanks for looking into this.
you probably had an ip being blocked and the router reset gave you a new ipQuote:

Whatever you did seems to have fixed the problem. I have never experienced any type of connectivity issues in the past.
Hi Allen, about 10 people got blocked due to a software glitch. I have discovered an issue between the gallery and our security software. If there are any issues with a gallery thumbnail many errors are generated. The security software thinks -uh oh a lot of failed attempts on the site within several seconds we must be under attack- so it blocks that ip. I have loosened this up and I also know what to look for now in the future. If the system notification emails inform me an ip was banned and the url links back to the gallery I now know it's bogus, but hopefully this will not happen again. Thanks, Sean
