Russ says he's working on the issue of downtime, so I can live with it even though it also inconveniences me. Downtime for me is sometime between 08:00 and 09:00, just when I'm feeling sharp. If I'm in time into my office, I use Firefox to open multiple tabs on the games I have waiting to play, then work through my moves and make them before uploading them when RHP is back online. Tabs are a nice feature with Firefox, and enable me to go back and double check my moves before posting them.
Okay, I don't have the benefit of the analyse board, but not ALL games need that.
I know the site should have out grown this kind of downtime and it does need addressing. It is a problem that can only get worse with the enormous amount of data we are now accumulating, so yes, the sooner it is addressed, the better.
