    Happy trails, James. It was a hoot. Maybe we'll run into each other again out there somewhere in the world wide web.

    Great to see that the hacker has apparently been defeated and that the site has returned to normal! Thank you to whoever is responsible for this victory!

    Did anyone figure out who hacked this site, because when I looked like 3 weeks ago it still wasn't working on my end.

    Can someone put a stop to those commercials that load & begin to automatically play every time you click a new page?

    I emailed Chris, the new owner, about the "server busy" messages. I still get them on a daily basis - at least once a day. The traffic on this site is much lighter than it was years ago and back then we only crashed it when there was a major amount of people logged on to talk about something new with Carrie. Consider how easy it now is for the server to be "busy", I worry that we won't be able to access CF when real news starts breaking about the album, when the single is released, when the album is released, etc. I won't know what to do if I can't get on here and talk to all of you about new Carrie music, lol. Hopefully he can do something to make the server function a little better.

    ...yes it is definitely disheartening. Especially when I go on 3 paragraph tyraids and then hit enter and it says server busy!!!!!! Augh!!!

    I am happy to report that Chris responded to my email within a couple of hours of me sending it. He asked how long the problem had been occurring. I told him several months to a year (feels like forever, but I'm not sure). I did tell him that the server busy messages pre-dated the hack that occurred recently. I told him that we have gotten used to it, but that I have concerns about the site staying "busy" when information starts to break about Carrie's new CD. He didn't give me a timeline or anything, but I was happy he responded so quickly.

    Chris emailed me again today. His message is below. I'm so happy that he is turning out to be just as helpful and supportive as James was when he ran the site!

    I have my programmer looking into this. Apparently the forum software has a load limiter built into to keep the load from getting so high that it crashes the server. We're trying to make adjustments to it now and I'll get back to you, but this is obviously a problem I want to get fixed and I appreciate you bringing it up.

    Kizmet, I for one just don't buy that explanation. I have tried to go from one page t another & gotten server busy messages. IO have been right in the middle of writing something & tried to post it only to get server busy. If I am already on the site there should be no issue with a load limit. But, at least he got back to you.

    I am just appreciative of his responsiveness to me and to the issue. I am not sure how involved he is in the site maintenance or how familiar he even is with the software on the site. He may have taken it over from James and just kind of lets it run itself unless we alert him to a problem. Hopefully he will realize how utilized the site is and work to get a solution to the server busy problems.

    Can you tell me what types of ads you're getting? Is anyone else seeing that? There shouldn't be any other ads other than the normal google ads as far as I know.

    That's what my programmer told me, it can also be that there could be all these automatic bots indexing and accessing the site (some good and some bad). These won't show up as users but still carry a load on the site.

    I actually just adjusted the server limit setting about a day ago. Has anyone noticed a difference, either better or worse in the last day?
