Thank you for your patience, everyone. We're seeing network activity that might suggest an upstream problem but haven't been able to decisively pin down the problem yet. During one of the outages we have been able to observe, we saw high levels of packet loss but our own server seemed to be purring along fine.
We'll gather some more evidence and be in touch with our provider.
We've seen several boards erupt with similar posts to the effect that anon.cafe might die and those boards should consider what to do in this case. We plan to keep anon.cafe very much alive, but if history has taught us anything it is that boards should always have a bunker and an evacuation plan.
Thank you, Anon. This is very helpful.
What symptoms do you see? Does it simply not load? Does it load slowly? Does it load but you can't post? What happens when you do try to post, if so?
>now a lot of people are having trouble but today is the first time i can connect without problems.
This is exactly the kind of mysterious symptom we can't explain. From our server's perspective, we're not seeing anything in the logs indicating starvation, restarts, crashes, and so on. That it's up for some and down for others is very strange.
So for you, it loads but you can't post?
