    “The server is busy at the moment. Try again later.”

    Anybody else getting this message?

    I am getting it intermittently—but ALL the time—and it doesn’tseem to matter what device I’m using, so I don’t think it’s on my end.
    Sincerely yours,
    Upset

    Just use one of the other internets.
    They're slower, but they work.

    What other internet? Or are you making a JimC joke?

    I tried everything, different device and browser, to no avail.

    Me, joking?

    Do this:
    1. Go to the forum one day using Firefox when you don't get the "server busy" message.
    2. While on the home page, right click your mouse on any blank area (no text or images) of the page.
    3. A little menu will pop up.
    4. From that menu, select "View Source".

    You'll find yourself looking at all of the code that makes up the webpage.
    You'll see these two lines near the top (I've removed the opening and closing brackets "<>" to disable the code):
    meta name="keywords" content="findadeath,scott michaels,dearly departed tours, findadeathforum, find a death, find a death forum" /
    meta name="description" content="The message board for Find a Death" /

    Just below that, you'll see this:

    script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/yui/2.9.0/build/yuiloader-dom-event/yuiloader-dom-event.js">*********

    5. Copy the URL portion of that line of code.
    6. This part is important and will make or break your access to the original internet as it was first developed - modify the "http:" part of the code by adding a backwards "s".
    7. Open a new tab in Firefox and search for "IE".
    8. Open Internet Explorer.
    9. Copy and paste the whole modified URL portion line of code into the search bar of IE.
    10. Hit "Enter + 11".

    Your internet connection will then revert from "www" to the original "w".

    You're now connected to Internet 5 and can browse to the forum like always.

    Give it a try.
    You may get an error message that says, "Server Busy - Try Again Later"; or something like that.
    Let me know if it doesn't work and I'll make up something else.

    Good luck!

    Is anyone still getting the "Server Is Busy" message? If so please let me know. I did change some settings but I believe this is a server problem which I am not associated with. If needed you can send me an email at: webmaster@findadeath.com. Thanks.

    Ok. If it gets serious again please let me know. I'm working on the new "all device" Find a Death website. It is almost 3/4 done. Give me until the end of March and keep your fingers crossed. Thank you. And Cindy, thanks for all of the help you have given me to keep this going. Without you I'd be lost.

    You're welcome, Mister Josh. Anything I can do just give me a holler.

    This is a new one. I can log in, but when I try to post I get "server is busy". Have to log out and try again. I think this is the forth time in less than an hour. Hope I can post this ! Lol

    If it happens again, try logging out and logging back in. Works for me.

    Mr. Josh said he'd sort it out as soon as he finished some other matters.
    I see that the new FAD home page is up - it looks really great.

    Actually, my old and seemingly outdated comprehension device might have combined elements of two of his posts into one, assigning to them a meaning that neither states separately.

    I'm thinking of trading up to one of those new Solid State devices - I hear they can parse and retrieve info faster and more accurately - if I comprehend that accurately:

    and that's why I said that in the first place. What he means, Jim, is that likely can't do anything about it, but he's not giving up trying.

    It acts a bit like physical limitations on the server; although it might be limitations (thus throttling) on the hosting account; hard to say from here.
    I'm sure that's been investigated.

    Perhaps the number of non-members looking around is choking it up a bit. Especially when somebody famous, or infamous, kicks it.

    Damned non-member interlopers.
    Slowing down our server and using up all our bandwidth.
    It's a crisis of epic proportions.

    Build a firewall.
