Slow As Molasses

The phrase.. Slow as Molasses is an American idiom for something that is painfully slow. Its history is related to the Great Molasses Flood on 15th January, 1919.

Molasses is liquid but it is a very thick, viscous liquid. When you go to pour it it moves verrrrry slowly. If you chill it molasses hardly moves at all or just plain does not move. 

So molasses in the middle of winter, well, you get it, right?

Slow as Molasses

I really do not like to complain. However these past few days have been tough on Virily. You have heard the saying, slow as molasses? Molasses are a very thick syrup that takes forever to pour from the bottle, as the photo shows. That is how it has been lately on Virily, for me at least. From time out errors to Internal server errors. It takes 1-2 minutes to post a comment, sometimes longer. And even longer to publish a post. And I like to reply to all comments made on my posts. It takes the same or more to view your posts. This is the reason I am behind on here. I want to view my friend’s posts but it is taking hours and it is ridiculous. I hope someone can help me out. If there are updates going on, could you let us know? A heads up is all I am asking. Until it is corrected I will slowly get to your posts.

As I was trying to publish this post I got this message three times…

Error 524 Ray ID: 3f8015993d7e9f11 β€’ 2018-03-07 21:18:19 UTC

A timeout occurred

And a new error message I have not seen before….

Error 503 Backend fetch failed

  1. you would THINK with everyone on here talking about it they would get
    SOMETHING done about it, as I had to edit my 1 post I put on here the other day
    (4 times) finally I had enough & got a hold of the chat box person on here
    & told her what was going on & whew lord it took everything I knew to keep cool.

    I hate to say it if they don’t get something done it’s gonna lose a LOT of people on
    here cause for one I’ve noticed not a lot of people use the love-it- lol-cute-cry & so on
    box’s below & when it takes you HRS to make a post what’s the point?

    after I had HER fix what was going on with my post I told her they need to fix
    these things & she came back & said their “working” on it well we only have
    so much patients to work with you know what I mean?? let’s get it FIXED.

  2. I’ve had the same issues the past day or so as well….it is frustrating for sure! Hopefully it gets fixed soon so we can all get back to posting and viewing/replying as we like. Right now it seems to be working better for me….

  3. I have the same problems. It’s frustrating, but I guess we have to be patient.
    By the way, this expresion is interesting. I didn’t know it. I got called slow as oil recently, I guess this is the Bulgarian version. πŸ˜€
