    New Server Changeover - Questions

    Since we’ll be switching to a new server Monday morning I have a few questions for the admins. For quite a while now, when switching between pages on The Pit, it is sometimes painfully slow when going to “Messages” It sometimes will take 5 or 6 seconds for my messages to appear, after clicking on “Messages”. But it’s always usually 3 or 4 seconds at least. I have pretty fast internet speeds too, 150-200 Mbps. Is this normal? I’ve noticed the free side is faster than The Pit side.

    Will we notice any changes on The Pit side, as far as the time to change between pages?
    And also, what differences, if any, should we notice on The Pit side after switching servers, Thanks

      No, they are introducing a new model where the block only lasts 12 hours and costs $0.50 per block. I heard they did the math and it should pay for the new server indefinitely after just the first month!

    Panhead John What is your big hurry? Will 2-3 extra seconds mess up your schedule? You're retired, you're old, you have nothing else to do,

      I guess it is understandable as Panhead John ‘s major income comes from people ordering his paper plates. Of course, his web site is the epitome of technology! 😜

    Working for Microsoft and being on the Azure Security team, the "switching to ***a*** new server" made me chuckle. :-)

    The new server is the same as the current one in terms of CPU, Memory, etc. So there should be little or no noticeable changes.

    I am not sure what could cause a 5 second delay for messages. It is possible the server can get a little busy and slow down from time to time.

    Since you seem to be the only one having this issue, I have to assume it is something on your side that is the cause. May not be, but we need to determine that for sure.

    Things that could be the cause: browser (plugins that block things), computer/OS (old hardware), router (needs restarted), ISP (throttling or filtering). Also, how many devices are sharing your internet? If someone else is streaming Netflix (or other service), you are not getting 150-200 Mbps.

    It could be that your ISP is the problem. I have Cox 1000mbps service. I rarely get that. Especially in the early afternoon when everyone gets home and starts streaming movies.

      raywjohnson I'd be willing to bet if you took a poll a lot of members would be willing to contribute to help slow down the connection for Panhead John

      I'm not overly worried about it, but it is noticeable I'm sure other see it too, just not something they would point out. I wouldn't have except PJ was left standing on his own as per usual, figured I'd validate his experience

    Will refunds be available for the 2 to 4 hours that we will not be able to access the site? Afterall, there are only 8,760 hours in a year. That's some pennies on the dollar right there. I'm no mathmaticstition but sounds about right.

Bring The Heat With Broil King Signet’s Dual Tube Burners

3 burner gas grill

The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King’s proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.
