( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

To add my own anecdote to this thread, I very regularly see periods where the site is completely unresponsive (read timeouts) from both at work (with a nasty HTTP proxy) and at home (straight DSL connection). Generally things work fine for 5-10 minutes, and then there will be a 1-3 minute period where I cannot get a response from the site at all. When it does respond, though, it's generally pretty speedy.

Though I stopped trying to pursue this when I asked others if they were seeing similar problems. Until this thread, everyone I'd spoken to had stated they saw none of the problems I saw.

Could this be an issue with an ISP slightly upstream from PM? That might explain a significant number of us seeing frequent problems while others (whose data may be routed separately) see no problems. *shrug*

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
