I was noticing that the imageBBS is having trouble coming up for me... is anyone else having that issue? I'll click on it and it just brings up a white page, then I hit refresh several times and it'll eventually load. It used to just go white ONCE, but now it's a bit worse...

When I access the ImageBBS through the http://www.mmcafe.com/bbs_menu.html border I don't have any trouble bringing it up on my end. However, when I try to access the bulletin board through the http://www.mmcafe.com/bbs_menu.html page I end up at http://www.planetps2.com/mmcafe/bbs.html and a blank white screen.

This kind of thing isn't limited to the imagebbs. When I'm at the university library, if I try to access the regular BBS I have to refresh the page about a dozen times before it shows up.

Yeah, when I try to look at the Cafe from my cousin's computer, I have to do the same thing. It's only a recent thing as far as I can tell, though.

Humnn that's weird.. it might be a setting problem, but it can also be just a server problem.


For people having the issue, can you-
1. Tell me when this started to frequently happen, and also,
2. Next time it happens, right-click on the blank page and see what comes out for the source code (copy & past it to this thread).

Thanks.

1. I think it started about 6-8 months ago, but I can't be sure because I wasn't always using the lab.

2. I only had to refresh once today, but this is what the source says on the blank page:

Humnn.. it might be gamespy's server and its ad.. but I need to see one more thing before coming to that conclusion..

Gojira> Next time it happens again, can you right-click on the blank page to get its source code rather than from your browser's menu? It'll probably look different. Thanks.

Actually that was from right-clicking the page. I never use the view menu to view source unless the page blocks right-click somehow.

This sucks. I wasn't able to get to this place for months. I thought it was really dead or under some sort of construction, as usually a refresh or two fixed the page.

It just finally worked for me again today. I missed a lot.

OK, I've rerouted the BBS out of PlanetPS2. Please tell me if the issuse still persists, thanks.

Well it's kind of weird, everything's fine if I enter the BBS from the main site. But if I try to link directly to the BBS, I get stuck in an endless forwarding loop. I supposed I shouldn't be doing that anymore anyway though. :P

Hahah! THAT'S what's going on! Yeah, I wondered about that. My browser goes kinda crazy.

I see the problem. It's the damn PlanetPS2 server, which adds some kind of weird Ad script to the source code, causing problems.

It's totally fine to link directly to the BBS!You'll probably be able to solve the loop issue by linking instead to http://www.mmcafe.com/bbs.html

The changes you made seem to have fixed everything on my end. Thanks Professor!

"Professor- Main Site question." , posted Wed 16 Aug 04:30:post reply

Dear Prof,

I am sure I am being annoying here so please picture me with cute puppy eyes. I was recently wondering if you still had plans to work on the main site sometime this year? I remember you vaguely mentioning the slight possibility that, now that you recovered a bit from that I-dunno-what-stress-and/or-disease that was plaguing you, you wanted to work on the website and try to have a few updates in April. Obviously that did not happen, but I was wondering if you completely dropped the idea or if you still had that in mind?

Also, since I am too lazy/hopeful to take MMC out of my bookmarks (which is the main reason I still think about this story of new updates), I was wondering how many visitors does the main site still get daily or weekly?

XXOO get well,
Your penpal,

Chaz






For a nitpicker you sure dress poorly.
