    Default Anyone else having trouble getting into the grant portal site?

    I've tried all evening to get into the grant website. I get the login page, but when I enter my username and password, it just stalls.

    Anyone else having issues tonight?

    Default That's good news!

    Thought we had been lost out there in cyber space somewhere.

    Thanks for the quick replies.

    Not sure if it was 1199as for 08 AFG yet but, I just found an 1199a update for a $1 million 07 SAFER late round posted to one of my clients. WooHoo!It is up and running albeit a little slow though so maybe others are posting too.

    The calm before the storm probably. They do this when they want to run re-indexing on the database as well as an uninterrupted backup. Runs faster and also reduces the chances of errors, all of which we like.

    Hopefully done by the time we're done visiting wife's grandmom here at the rehab facility in St Augustine. Recovering well from a stroke a couple of years ago. Anyone who has a relative that has had one I highly recommend a digital picture frame on slideshow mode. We gave her one for Xmas last year and she's improved more since then than in the prior 18months. We have pics of my daughter (lone great-grandchild) and the rest of the family on it. Which is why I'm here now, copying new pics and figured I'd multi-task while the progress bar is going. Wish they had these things when my grandmother was around, might have helped her out too.

    Must not like you today, still working on a bunch of logins. Are you getting a page doesn't exist error or will it just not let you in?

    Probably a slow internet connection. Servers are set to time out on requests, from your ISP all the way across every other server between you and the app server. Round trip takes too long, and it's a default error of 'page not available/doesn't exist'. Programmers assume that connection speeds will be fast enough and servers fast enough that if the return stream doesn't arrive in ## seconds it means it doesn't exist at all, rather than creating a 'timeout' error. Worked with a lot of programmers over the years that were lazy like that...
