UPDATED: Disussion Forums Temporarily Offline

The PIC Forums have now been resotored.

The PalmInfocenter discussion forums have had to be temporarily shut down while we're experiencing high server load. They will return once things can run more smoothly with the traffic. The forums are the most resource intensive system on the server. An announcement will be posted here when they return. In the mean time the news article comments are still open. Thanks for your patience. -Ryan

Some churn!

mikecane @ 12/9/2004 12:50:18 PM #
I haven't even had time to get down there to see what's going on. All I know is that PIC has had some amazing latency today!

The comments page is now all messed up for viewing in Mozilla 1.7.3. Text over message boxes, etc. Hopefully you'll have some help now, Ryan, and everything can get back to normal!

Sorry guys!!! A little problem happened turning them back on, shouldn't be much longer (1-3hrs tops).

Everyone in my audience would be on my holiday card list if it didn't kill so many trees :P

VERY Sorry everybody, looks like we need another day to calm down if possible :)

Time for a new server.

No, he just phones home. On the other hand, I am up the walls now because of enforced forum rest. NOT what the doctor ordered!

I'm suprised how much I miss the forums.

Like when you get used to a noise being there, but then it stops.

Interesting what you hear in those moments.

PIC Forums Active or a Cobalt Device?

PIC Forums Active or a Cobalt Device? Which will we see first?

The forums will come back online when I'm a little more rested.

Ten Tips to Prevent Colds and the Flu
From Elizabeth Quinn,Your Guide to Sports Medicine.

Coughs, colds and the flu are common during winter. With more of us spending time indoors, it's easier for germs to spread. So, to avoid becoming another statistic, keep in mind the following tips to preventing the spread of illness.

1. Wash your hands frequently. This is often your best defense. Wash the entire hand using warm water and soap. Don't forget to clean under fingernails. Wash for about 10 seconds.
2. Avoid putting your hands near your eyes, nose or mouth, unless you have washed. Most bacteria and germs are spread from a surface to your hands to your face. Few germs are transmitted through the air.
3. Clean your 'shared spaces' more often than other times of the year. Remember phones, keyboards, steering wheels, office equipment and other items used by several people during the day.
4. Get a flu shot. Flu shots are especially beneficial for those with wekened immune systems, the elderly or those who come in contact with a lot of people. Check with Health Services for more information.
5. Get enough sleep. During sleep, your body's immune system goes into high gear to protect you from illness. Lack of sleep can reduce immune functioning making you susceptible to sickness.
6. Drink more water. In the fall and winter, it is easy to overlook your thirst and get dehydrated. Make sure you consume 8 glasses a day.
7. Continue a moderate exercise program. Try to maintain a 3-4 day a week exercise routine. Consistency is key.
8. Eat healthily. A good rule is to eat 10-15 calories per pound of "desired body weight." If your ideal weight is 170 lbs, then consume 1700-2550 calories a day (1700 for sedentary individuals and 2550 for extremely active types.)
9. Limit alcohol intake. Alcohol can be dehydrating which, in turn, may decrease your resistence to bacteria.
10. Finally, listen to your body. If you are less than 100% you will feel better and recover faster if you let yourself rest.


11. Avoid shaking hands whenever possible. If you must shake hands, wash your hands immediately after.
12. Avoid sick people.
13. Avoid crowds during cold and flu season.
14. Avoid public buffets and baskets.

well great to see the comments on the sports medication.
Well done but i think main problem is the immune system.This causes lots of diseases.For example liver problem,Digestion problem etc.Immunity plus sideeffects are very few so i think this will better. [SPAM LINK REMOVED] please look at this page this is showing the all the details about the drug.

ROFLMAO! Oddly enough, the spambot's comment above seems strangely relevant to this old thread about Cobalt.

Activity certainly has dropped off, hasn't it?

The 5 Stages of Grief:

1) Denial and Isolation.
2) Anger.
3) Bargaining.
4) Depression.
5) Acceptance.

In general, I think we are at stage four.

Just hoped to somehow get attention, even though the post is old...

The forums seem to be down again. Sometimes I can access it, by IP(I use open dns, fwiw).

My problem or your's?


Admin @ 8/15/2008 11:00:50 AM #
PIC itelf was down a few hours this morning due to a glitch, which has been corrected.

The forums are online now but are admittedly slower than they should be. I've been trying to sort out a performance issue with them that came up after the server move and am still looking into it.
