    Just wondering if anyone else has had problems getting on here or changing pages lately?

    I’ve been refused with Error 4o4, 505, and time outs several times yesterday and today.

    For the last couple weeks this is the only page I go to that is like using the old dial-up…I have time to go pour a cup of coffee before it loads.

    Yeah the site has been very slow and iffy lately.  It got that way a couple of times before and I guess John got his tech people to straighten it out.

    Hi everyone, thanks for your patience. It is a GoDaddy thing… I have called them and they are working on straightening it out!

    I’m in Florida currently, connecting through a phone, but as of right now it seems OK… It has been hit and miss the past few days. This afternoon around 4 pm I had trouble bringing the site up.

    You gotta sing that Willie Nelson song…”On the Road again…”  wasn’t that Willie Nelson?

    Yep, it’s Willie. I like to sing it in the car, but I usually ad lib the lyrics to fit my attitude (I’m not super keen on being trapped in a metal cage for hours on end)

    I think “Go Daddy” should be renamed “Slow Daddy”. It’s unbelievable how difficult it is at times to get on this site. Sure hope Go Daddy can fix their problems.

    They got real bad for a while a couple years back, if i remember right.  Then they got it all together and it got better.  I’m wondering if the site grows and gets more activity they need catching up to do, but I have no idea what happens, but they have fixed whatever happens in the past.  Hopefully they’ll get it soon.  It was working really well for me yesterday, then by last night it was bad again…lol.

    Gunnar, I hear ya.  I’m the worst person to travel. I can’t stand our trips to TN…lol…which is only 4-5 hours in the car.  I’ve never been on a plane and don’t ever wanna try.  You’ve done more than one person’s share of traveling, for sure, but I’m sure you’ve gained quite a bit of enrichment that most people never get in their lives.  So…keep on singing the song, I guess.

    Oh, that means half of my problems might not be slow internet. Slightly off topic, but Cricket, I actually found it very strange as a young teen (as if I’m so old now ?) reading books about sixteen and seventeen year olds going on missions trips and having to apply for their first passport, and I was like, I thought you had to always have a passport? ?? I’ve always had one anyway, it just seems weird not to.

    There was a general GoDaddy slowdown a few years ago, and so I migrated the site to a Managed WordPress server which fixed the problems. However, now this is giving me troubles… It may soon be time for another move!

    It’s becoming more and more problematic getting on this website. I’ve done everything I know to do on my end, but very little, if any, improvement in connection speed. It’s hard to believe that the CEO of GoDaddy made 23 million this year and offers such a poor business model, but I guess that’s business nowadays. Discouraging, though.
    Good luck, John, getting the help/attention you need to restore the quality to your absolutely wonderful site.
