    Default Geocaching.com

    The site seems to have collapsed again (and they wonder why people use GSAK to keep details of local caches!)

    They've probably forgotten to feed the hamsters again...

    And it has to happen just as I'm part way through editing one of my cache pages!!

    Keep trying - it's working on and off.

    it's back up, I've just dealt with caches in the SE, North Wales & Yorkshire and Humberside with no problems.

    And I'd like to take this chance to thank which ever of the Lackeys, got out of bed in the early hours of St Stephens Day [Boxing Day] after a phone call to rectify the issue. Not bad service for $30 per year. Especially since the same person would have disturbed his Christmas day if it had been needed.

    But of course, if your happy to pay a lot more, they'd have someone on 24 hour/365days standby [oh wait they virtually do already]. Then if the site was down for a couple of hours over the Christmas period, you'd have a genuine reason to moan about the need to keep a off line database!


    Sorry you picked the wrong time of the year to moan about what is a very stable site now days. When someone has disturbed his sleep during the holiday period, to rectify the issue.

    I eventually got it working (after restarting the PC!).
    But it's still rather dodgy and returns error 500 quite often.
    (edit: as in, all the time now!).

    Has anyone experienced the site not working properly over the last 24 hours? I try searching by either postcode or keyword and it just loops back and reloads the page...

    I've just tried search by two postcodes and by 'hamster' (58) and 'bridge' (10,049) and all is working OK here.

    Perhaps you hit a temporary glitch? How is it now?

    Both searches working for me too.

    Yep, all seems ok now. It was shocking last night and first thing this morning. Must just be heavy traffic...
