since i see nobody has any feedback on this ... is there any other place i can ask for suggestions? (besides stackoverflow which is more than dead)
You asked the original question an hour before asking if there's another location. Forums are not instantaneous; you might want to give a little more time. That said, you can always check out Cordova's slack channel (cordova.slack.com)
Double check the configuration of your server as you should be using HTTP/1.1, not 0.9.

Just a clarification on Kerri's answer - use slack.cordova.io instead to get an invite to the Cordova Slack Team.
