    Site slow-down and a duplicate post warning?

    Anyone else notice a slow down on the site this afternoon? (for the past hour). Just submitted a reply and it told me I had a duplicate. Same way things do when the updates happen around 5am my time. Sup y'all?

    Can't tell here, the location I am at has a horrid Internet connection.

    I had that same problem once. i posted a message and it seemed like it took forever to get through, then it said I had a duplicate, but I never could find the duplicate.

    But 99.999% of the time the site runs fast and smooth.

    I'll see if I can find anything that would indicate a slowdown in the logs. There are so many external things that can slow down the Internet it's mind boggling. It could be virtually any point between you and our server. It could even be increased Internet traffic due to the election....

    At 9:30 am this morning I received about a dozen message indicating that we were exceeding our 'max_user_connections' active connections. Which means there are more people than our threshold allows. Since we still have plenty of capacity, I will see if I can bump this number up....

    Well, if it is, I'm not living up to the name. I haven't found that setting yet. I did, though, notice that we have 22 bots on the site right now, which could very well be our problem. They have done this before in the past and I finally denied everyone but Google. I probably shouldn't have let them back in....
