Chat freezing

Mike, I don't think that my chat problems are due to your messing with the site at any given time... also there are many of us experiencing this problem... and it is occuring randomly across time... usually reloading the page shows the missed messages, but Saturday I clicked refresh numerous times with no result.. later I did and it showed hours worth of messages.

here are a few posts about it in case you missed them:

4:11am Peter: me too ... I thought it was just quiet with US
3:24am max-td: dont like to klick reload every minute
3:22am max-td: sorry -- CHAT-update-problem
3:21am max-td: i think i have it too now --i realized it the first time today
3:20am max-td: whats up with this chart-update-problem ? any infos on that ?
11:44pm Saroj: Mike, any idea why chat freezes up every so often? my last message was at 9:15pm.. I clicked on refresh and see messages up to 11:29..

06-21-09 1:37 PM sharky: i think there is a bug in the auto update somewhere
06-21-09 1:36 PM sharky: no its this site
06-21-09 1:32 PM Saroj: I was beginning to wonder if it was something on my LAN that was interfering, but I don't have any trouble with any other chat
06-21-09 1:24 PM sharky: yes dont know whats wrong with it
06-21-09 1:20 PM Saroj: chat has gone funky again

06-20-09 6:54am Saroj: so... if you see that I'm logged in but not participating for hours at a time... I'm not ignoring you.. I just don't realize anyone is chatting
06-20-09 6:53am Saroj: Jeesh... I hate that this chat keeps freezing up... I refreshed it 2 or 3 times after the "last" post at 6:16... just did again and I see that there was lots of chatting from then until 10p.m. when I went to bed..

Ok lets try to narrow it down. I've never had a problem with it.

What browser and operating system are you guys using?

2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.

Also:

In last two days I've had to restart the web server a BUNCH because I'm trying to fix one lingering issue from the server migration. Your chat would freeze during any of these.

I also just remembered that two nights ago I lost connection to our server overnight as well for about 5 seconds for an unknown reason. If the connection is broken at all then your chat won't refresh because it uses AJAX.

I think we might have to wait for me to stop restarting Apache to know for sure if the chat problem is that or something else. I am waiting for vbulletin tech support to take a look at the issue which is why I am restarting apache so much.

Let's see what others say. Also, if it is freezing, tell me if you are in normal mode or "full screen" mode on the chat.

Just duplicated the chat issue inside of IE8 using the normal (non full screen) mode.

Now that I've duplicated it I will see what I can do.

I updated to the latest version just now.

I also bought the chat to remove the extra copyright notice at bottom. This entitles us to support as well, so if we keep having problems I'll ask the author for help.

Just FYI, I have never seen issues with FireFox. I have not tried IE. Hope all is well now with the upgrade for everyone else.
