I need to rebuild the forum archive. I do this once a year to maintain the forum's snappy performance.
This is when I move old topics to the archive so the active set of topics is smaller and thus faster for the database.
I try to start around 9am US/Eastern time. It takes about 45 minutes and it's best to shut the site down until it's done.
If things go well, I think it could be done by 10am, or noon if something goes wrong.
I just did the yearly offer/trade message archiving. That can be done while the site is up. It only takes a minute.
Seems to me that when you did this last year, it took significantly less time than you thought. https://gametz.com/Site_Feedback/gametz-will-littl...
BTW, the pager for Site Feedback only seems to be showing next/previous page, without page numbers for faster skipping. General, for example, gives me numbers to click. Something going on with SF?
I was just kidding.
It shows the chain of how your network routes from where you are to where you're going. It's a list of hostnames/IP addresses. If something is wrong and you can't get to a host, it shows you where things are going wrong.
There are probably apps that do a traceroute from a phone.
Switching between LTE and wifi will often change the routing a lot and it's interesting that didn't help. But, sometimes network outages can be region based. I'm no expert.
I agree it's not a big issue and very likely--even if you did more to track it down--I probably couldn't do much to fix it. I wasn't going to post again, but then you guys revived this topic like you cared or something.
