The Pub / Vibrant local markets
« on: April 15, 2011, 10:50:16 AM »
Market season is here. We're all excited to head down the the Eugene (OR) Saturday Market tomorrow.  I live outside of Portland, OR which does have a big Saturday Market (it's also open on Sunday).  While the Portland market is big, and well attended, it's also somewhat of a junk sale- lots of cheap imported junk.  There's also some cool local stuff, but the vibe just isn't there for me.  Anymore, I rarely go.

On the other hand, the Eugene Saturday Market is limited to only handcrafted items, including the food.  It's a vibrant scene with a substantial farmers market (pretty much all organic), great food and some pretty cool handcrafted items.  I'm ready to dig into my first Ritta's Burrito of the season.  I know you guys like tacos, but Ritta's is better  ;D  Oh yeah- the people watching is pretty cool too.  I may have to buy the kids another joke book from Frog (it will depend on when he had his last bath)

How bout it?  Do you have, or know of, a great local market?

Wow, now I know why there are so many cars hitting bikes around Portland.  What a lot of attitudes (bike people AND car people).

I haven't done a lot of street bicycling, but I DID ride a motorcycle for years.  I always drove very defensively in fear of getting hit by a car.  I do see quite a few cyclists that aren't as cautious as they could be.  Of course, many car drivers are just the same.  Having the right of way means squat when you're on a bike and get smashed by a car.

There are A LOT of bicyclists around Portland.  Its amazing to see all the bike commuters on the city streets.  Unfortunately, cars hitting bicycles is always on the news here despite significant bike trails.

The Pub / Re: Wiring a receptacle to a switch.

That'll work.  You could also eliminate the receptacle and just wire directly to the disposal  (that's what I would do, but I'm just some interwebs guy)

Some mildly interesting observations:

The gzip error was actually addressing another thread concerning the index.php page downloading to one's local drive versus displaying not this thread about WSOD. Sorry for the confusion.

The hosting provider disabled compression today so the download will be fixed and we will see what it does with the WSOD error.

To reiterate, if you experience the WSOD, please send along date/time, browser, OS, source, etc., so we can examine log files for any indications of what is occurring.

Thank you.

Tim


Actually Tim, I believe both issues ARE related.  For me, the index download problem started on 12/20/10 and lasted until 12/22/10.  The issue then went completely away until 3/19/11 and has been getting steadily worse since then (until yesterday’s fix).  Now, check out these WSOD posts:

Here’s how this thread started on 12/20/10 (the same day my index download problem started)-
Am I the only one?

After weeks of flawless performance I now regularly get blank pages, I mean zip zero nada zilch butkus nothing...... When I click on "reply", 1 out of 5 or going to my profiles clicking on any of the links on the left...... most frustrating...... :(



Then, on 12/30/10 we have this (my index download problem went on hiatus after 12/22/10)-

Things seem to be acting normally lately.....



And here the WSOD problem is back on 3/22/11. (Note that I started having the index download problem again on 3/19/11)-

OK got the Youtube vids fixed.....

And now THE WHITE PAGES OF DEATH ARE BACK!........not as bad as before, but just as annoying!  :P :P :P


Thanks for finally getting this fixed!

Interesting- this thread was started the same day that my index download thing came up.  Let me guess, compression was turned on 12/20/10?

I bet this fixes the WSOD issue also  (I love guessing stuff)

We don't need no stinking compression :D

Thanks Tim.  The issue appears to have gone away (it had recently been getting much worse).  For me, it started on 12/20/10 and lasted until 12/22/10.  The issue then went completely away until 3/19/11 and has been getting steadily worse since then.

Most importantly, I really appreciate that someone took the time to really look into this and get it fixed.  Thanks AHA.

I received this from Tim Sloan, IT director for the AHA...

I had suspected it, but our hosting company confirmed that this error
does appear to be a browser issue.

Here is why.
If you look at the code snippet someone copy and pasted you will see
Content-Encoding: gzip. This means that the server is sending the
content compressed by gzip then the browser should uncompress. This is
compression aids response times and all browsers are built to handle it.

Given this, the suggestions about cache and cookies might help.

As for the WSOD, they aren't seeing anything that is showing an issue.
Have you experienced it? If you have and have it happen again could you
record date and time, as well as, also take a look at the source to see
if anything appears?


Thanks.

Tim




With all due respect, I'm not buying the idea that the problem is (typically) on the client end.  Too many people are having too many similar problems.  Something is whack on the board side of the interwebs.

(furiously resists making Mac comment)....

Oscar has trouble with the mac. My firefox on linux performs flawlessly. Plays flash too. What is a white page of death?

This is when one clicks on the next page number of a thread, edit, quote or any other of these types of actions and all you get is a white screen. The back arrow will get you to the original page, and then you can repeat this.... over and over again.

This is the ONLY forum where this happens to me, and I have visited many, as in 20-30 many.

This is curiously similar to my "weird index download" problem.  My problem occurs while doing the exact same actions listed above (in bold).  I don't get the WSOD, just the WID.  I'm running chrome on a Win 7 machine

Damn, it's doing it again.  However, my browser is still lightning fast.  I would say that Chrome and the forum don't play nice, however, it looks like some are having a similar problem w/ other browsers (Firefox).

Actually, my experience has been that Chrome works great for me here and IE, not so much.

Generally, Chrome works fine here (for me).  I've just been getting these random "index" downloads.  Sometimes it does it and other times it doesn't.  There's no pattern.

I'm assuming you're using Windows.  Create a new user in Window (or the Mac if you're a Mac user) and go into the new profile and check out the forums.  If everything works okay, then you have an issue with your user profile that is causing the problem.  It could be a corrupt preference file or something similar to that.  If the same problem exists with the new user, try uninstalling Chrome and reinstalling it with a fresh download.



I am indeed using Windows 7.  Considering others have chimed in with the same problem, I think I'm going to hold off on your suggestions (too much work and I don't think it will help).  I still think it's a forum problem. In the meantime, I have a few older XP machines that I'll try.
