. . . so posters who are trigger happy with the refresh button are responsible for you being blocked if you can't see the site

You will get Server is too busy.
Please try again later

Or else non of you will be able to see the damn scores and that pisses everyone off

But...if we don't press "refresh", how are we supposed to get the new scores ??? ;)

Honestly, TBE...It happened to me yesterday...I got the "Server is too busy" message, but I refreshed another time and everything went back to normal in the following seconds...I don't think it's that big of a deal :)

Sorry :D

During the Hingis v Elena D. match we will see a server too busy again, ithink. ;)

Only when over 250 ppl refresh at the same time, we get a error, don't matter when about 100 ppl browser this forum and get scores

you reopen the page and that way its not a prob (i hope)

it won't be a prob right now
but like Jorn says when Hingis and Dementieva play then :rolleyes:

maybe the 1st 250 can only get onto the board, the others are blocked off ;) with the message server too busy ;)

About 120 posters was here during the Iva v Kim match, and the board still works. but I think now more ppl will come...but IF ppl just click refresh every 2 minuts and not every 2 sec. the board maybe will work better

if person A doesnt press reload, then person B will so just good luck to whoever

Precisely Anton, perish the thought that we might have to press refresh twice :eek: ! Anyway, I think it almost makes it a bit more fun :) .
