    Is it just me?

    Or does DC go down at 4am everyday for about 10 minutes? Happened to me about three or four times now, and this morning I looked and it was 4am on the dot when I was posted and the site froze. Later the post time was 4:09am, when the site came back up? Did the page just freeze for 9 minutes?

    Ten minutes is looking on the bright side of things in my opinion. Sometimes I swear it lasts for a half hour or more. Could be 4am or 5am also. Maybe that's the time they run the virus scans and updates and stuff. I run most of my maintenance programs at 3 am every day.

    Rick, I'm not on at that time, but I would suspect that there is a maintenance activity that takes place at that time. It is probably the time the backup takes place. I'm sure Bumper will give you a fuller explanation when he sees this thread.

    I kind of figured that and usually I go to bed around then, but this time I hit reply right on the money, so I got a time.

    You got to be careful when the site does come back around...you may make a double post. It's happened to me when things start to slow down. I've learned though, and I'll go do something else.

    I have had trouble getting DC (my home page) to open up early in the morning, also (not every morning)...never thought much about it. I just assume that someone is working on something.

    Normally backups start about 3:00am Pacific time. They last about 15-20 minutes.

    What are you guys doing on at 4 am anyways? Does the word sleep mean anything to you?

    Probably bouncing between futzing with the new Java scripts (Bumper & crew) and watching the "The Killer Shrews" film (uh ... that would be me).

    Something must be working, 'cause the DC.com site is working smoother and faster than ever. Kudos to the squirrels on the wheel. Keep it up, li'l critters!
