Whomever Para uses for provider service, wherever this site is hosted, is fast and reliable. Uptime is solid, this forum loads page views much faster than other sites. I’m on some automotive and motorcycle forums and they are in the slow lane. And their forum code always, consistently needs to be upgraded, shutting the site down. No such thing here. Props.

To hell and back.



"We may consent to be governed, but we will not be ruled." - Kevin D. Williamson, 2012

"All the citizens of this land are of right freemen; they owe no allegiance to any class and should recognize no task-masters. Under the chart of their liberties, under the law of high heaven, they are free and without shackles on their limbs nor mortgages upon the fruits of their brain or muscles; they bow down before no prince, potentate, or sovereign, nor kiss the royal robes of any crowned head; they render homage only to their God and should pay tribute only to their Government. Such at least is the spirit of our institutions, the character of our written national compact."

Charles Triplett O’Ferrall of Virginia - In Congress, May 1, 1888

Every so often, there is a hiccup in the universe and SF is not accessible for a minute or two.

Afterward, you would be surprised at the number of folks who just lost their minds.

But yes, and Para is always kind enough to warn in advance for planned server upgrades/maintenance. He may be single-handedly responsible for the mental health of tens of thousands.

That's my experience as well.

Even with sometimes crappy 1x internet while offshore, this site routinely loads quickly and reliably. Probably has a lot to do with the fact that there are no God awful ads.

I think a key reason is because this is a simple page. It's not flooded with ads. I'm on some forums where the damn ads load before the content.

Sigforum is often my test to see if systems are working.
Something not loading? I click the light green olive background w/ p225 to see if information is flowing.

This is the only forum in which I "play". And for the reasons already cited.

Congratulations and humongous respect,and THANKS to Para for providing this place of refuge and education.

'Sir Forum', a fitting title indeed!
I would be more than sad if I lost access. Much better than any pill Big Pharma could develop.

Same. It’s that reliable and that’s down to the owner(s) skillfully picking a service provider and PAYING for the speed. I work on the 5 9’s daily, and it’s a tough job to keep it that way so I know a thing or two.

As you can tell from my post count, I spend a lot of time here with you guys. It's entertaining and educational. I appreciate the opportunity to be here, and am grateful to Para for his patience and generosity.
