This site - Very slow, or is it my computer?
« on: November 19, 2019, 03:35:26 am »
For quite a while now when I click on my bookmark for "BOSS 302 Exchange" it takes over 20 seconds to come up.  I've assumed it's that way for everybody due to some new process to keep site safe after being hacked.  So, this morning, while waiting for it to pop up I decided I'd ask just out of curiosity.  Thanks.

The site never recovered from the hacks. Yes, its slow.
Current lifelong project:

Some of the functions are slow.  Slow as in this is the slowest of about 10 forums I read (Cars, Drums, hiking).  Could be any number of issues.  Server speed, load, missing indexes.  All started after the hack.  But.....Just glad it's still here!  Many forum moved to Facebook.  Maddening to see the daily post about "How do I...." which was answered daily.

Recently many members said 'goodbye' to this site for some of the issues mentioned. Some (like myself) are not happy you can not directly attach pictures anymore. Im sure the servers are to blame on the hacks, aka lack of some sort of firewall security.

Yeah, I'm very glad it's still here!  I can live with it being slow, just wanted to be sure it wasn't something I was doing.

BOSS 302's are like a fabulous WI cheddar. Both get better with age and you buy them for your enjoyment, not as an investment.

When the world start moving at an even FASTER pace (then we have today with the 24/7 contact/new cycle and convergence of time zones)..........BOSS302.com maybe both "relaxation therapy" as well as SUGGESTED material of the way it USED TO BE !   

THIS group should remember 300 Baud Rate "modems" of the eighties that , I could type faster than the computer spit out part numbers from the terminals !     I would sort my green bar reports by Discontinued/Part# BODY/and cost, as I was taking my pay check in Parts at the time!   LOL
