    Re: Board timing issues?

    The only other hint I can give you is that it seems like there are multiple servers or ports or something each with a different time difference. For example, just now I tried to post something and got "wait 128 seconds". The next attempt said "wait 15 seconds" then "wait 85 seconds" then "wait 11 seconds". To me, it looks like there are three ways into the posting system, one in sync with me and two others out of sync, but I'm guessing. Multiple attempts do seem to have them count down as you would expect but from different starting points until I get lucky and hit the one in sync with me. All this is guesswork though and it happens randomly. Often I've got no problem at all for several minutes.

    I will report your findings to the tech guy again, but I can't promise he will have a look any time soon.

    Okay, but it is still happening today. First two posts were fine then the third got the problem. Using Firefox if that helps.

    Just checking in. The bug happens every day, just not very often. Seems very random. Today is worse than other days though.

    Fuck it is bad today. Two posts out of three I have to try multiple times to get through (including this one). Please do something about this.

    I am sorry you are having problems with posting but as I said before, this has been reported.
    However there's only 1 tech guy, his list of things to do is huge and board problems are unfortunately not high on his priority list.

    Still happening every day, very frustrating at times. If I was running the board I'd insert some code that says "If I'm about to print a message saying you have to wait more than 10 seconds, the board is screwed up and just let the post go through and maybe log the conditions"

    Still happening randomly every day. Major pain in the ass at times. This post took 13 attempts before it got through.

    I understand this is frustrating but all we can do is wait until the tech guy has time to pick up this issue.

    Still happening every day, still frustrating. Just letting you know it is still a problem.

    Re: Board timing issues?

    One other clue to this is that I've noticed that when I log out and come back the next day, the last few things I've posted show up as unread as if I was logged in for a few minutes longer than I actually was.

    This is still happening every day but it is tolerable in that only every 5-10 posts will show the problem and then you can usually get the post through on the 2nd or 3rd attempt. The time difference though is fairly consistent on each occurrence, usually between 180 and 220 seconds printed that I have to "wait between posts".

    I really think this is a problem on your end because if this was wide spread we would receive many complaints about this every day and we haven't.

    In all due respect, you might be right but that would imply that somehow the board is using timestamps from my computer or allowing my computer to manipulate them. Either way, that's a terrible design. I find it more likely that something is corrupting timestamps within the board itself and it is an intermittent problem that my particular account is more prone to trigger. If you've ever written any decent amount of code, you've seen this kind of problem dozens of times with a bad or stale pointer using memory it shouldn't that may or may not cause bad effects. To me, this is a classic case of that. I wait to be proven wrong.

    I'll give you a real life example I was involved with. Customer complained our code failed on his system. We couldn't reproduce the problem so got access to that particular system and started to diagnose it. Turns out that only on that system for whatever reason, a particular memory location would sometimes contain the number 16 instead of 0. We had a wild pointer that used that value (although it shouldn't) and 0 was fine but 16 was bad. We fixed the pointer issue to point to the right place and the bug was solved. I've also had to diagnose issues where code would fail if the command line parameter size went past a certain size. It made no difference whatsoever what the parameters were, just that they went past a certain size thus shifting memory slightly and a wild pointed again picked up a bad value. Maybe "DrakeM" is too short as most other IDs are longer. End of programming lesson.
