    Default Here We Go Again - Bad Gateway

    Is it just me? For the past 24 hours I have been continually getting this message. I'd suggest 2 out 3 hits to AF.

    Me too.

    I don't bother posting about it anymore.

    It just situation normal for the AF site. The hosting ISP isn't providing enough bandwidth to service all connected users.

    I have had less problems since switching to Firefox - was using Chrome and it became unuseable. Of course that could be something in my profile, but have rarely had a problem with Firefox (except ironically on first attempt to open this thread ).

    Cheers

    It isn't your browser, so Firefox or any other browser will make no difference. This is a problem between the AF host server, and the intervening Cloudflare machine, probably related to the well known restrictions on the host.

    I connect to the host directly, and so cannot get this particular one. That doesn't mean I'm not affected by the usual restricted host server bandwidth.

    ....
    I know it's not logical, and I don't have an explanation, but I've just done some more tests - Error 502 Bad Gateway occurs at least 50% of the time with Chrome, hardly ever with Firefox.

    So Vlad, be adventurous - try a different browser and report back with your experience.

    Cheers

    The problem, bad gateway or resource limit is browser independent.

    Any correlation to a particular browser, operating system or PC hardware is purely coincidental.

    The problem is 100% related to the AF server bandwidth allowance when connecting to the WWW.

    I use Firefox. It has absolutely nothing to do with it. Purely co-incidental.

    And it's happening today 13:50 - 14: 25 It is almost Karma that it took three tries to successfully post this message.

    Look on the bright side - Cloudflare is being screwed before you are.

    Nothing to do with browsers or operating systems or French voitures.

    Whatever you think is a fair thing.

    To me, these constant errors are no more than an inconvenience. (and a reason to browse another site)
