Default TOTV and me

Boy Howdy, getting to TOTV these last 2 days has been like the old days of dial-up. You wait, and you wait and finally you give up and walk away and when you come back in an hour whoopee, there it is. I know it's nobody's fault, there just isn't enough band width to accommodate all the would-be posters. And we love them all, every one of 'em.

I agree the past few days TOTV has been very slow to respond. It is annoying so I give up. I don't want to wait forever to change pages or wait for the page to load. My other websites load and respond just fine so I go there.

I went thru the same problem the past 2 days. Many times it wasn't only slow but said that the web site wasn't responding.

Does this mean it will continue to get worse? I am using back door and anything to get on. Can the admin please respond? Is there a plan to fix this and increase the number of people who can access it? If I can get on other sites with large numbers of poster, it must be fixable. Of course it may be a matter of money, which I would understand.

The backdoor may take the form of an installed program (e.g., Back Orifice) or may subvert the system through a rootkit.

ditto here on the slow .....no I will say no loading of TOTV yesterday afternoon and again today.

And now the so called home page seems like the deck has been shuffled.

For me TOTV essentially disappears right after noon. It's then unaccessible until approximately 7pm. It works fine in the morning as well. I've gotten..no connection..website not found..or it just tries & tries & tries to connect. It can't be bandwidth because if it was, there would be problems all the time, not just one general time of day.

Probably the simplest application and/or explanation of the term "back door" is to have a confidential master password to enter a large computer system where many passwords with individually differing access capabilities have been issued. The master password I'm referring to is privy to only administrators on a need to have basis so they can access all restricted and unrestricted areas and functions of the computers various systems and data bases.

There was one incident where I became involved with a back door password during my career with the NYS DMV. In my early years I was a computer operator before moving on to an issuing office supervisor. Most data processing personnel knew me for quite some time after I left, and they had a sense of trust in my having been one of them.

One day it was imperative that something get fixed and had to be done quickly. No administrators were at my location to do the fix, so the data processing administrator decided to give my the backdoor password so I could get in to make the fix (under his guidance) that they couldn't do remotely. The fix was quickly made and a lot of inconvenience to the public was averted.

Unfortunately, the administrator that decided to trust me was later reprimanded by upper management for compromising the confidential password. They then had to go through whatever process was necessary to replace the master back door password. Guess the uppity uppers didn't trust me as much as the one I was working with did!

Definitely a problem somewhere. I'm sure they will sort it out as soon as possible. It has been hit and miss the last few days. It either loads immediately...or won't let me in at all.

I so agree with the second part of your post.

I am sure that the unseen people who so carefully monitor this forum are putting all of their efforts to correcting this problem. It must be because so many of us want to use the forum that we have overloaded it.

I think it is my fault..
