Hi There

For the last couple of days I have noticed that the site tends to be very slow.

Opening a topic is no problem but as soon as you hit next page or reply it takes up to about 30 sec to a min to open :wall: till it turns.

I have used different browsers and the same result.

Cleared out all cookies and history this is quite frustrating :big_eyes:

Radman,

Have a look here at forum problems then you'll see you're not alone.

Mine was working very nice, but yesterday I struggled a lot............and the previous evening I just gave up trying to post a episode of my trip report!!!

To day I'm back to okay.

I struggled on Sunday, I think. I thought that it was just my connection. I never tried other sites though.

Today is good.

From this side the pages fly in. How are the pages on other sites, like CNN and other sites hosted in the USA?
It could very well be that one or more transatlantic cables are down again.

Yesterday and today I have noticed that when I open a page here, although it seems to load ok the little circle thing just keeps going round and round ad infinitum as if the complete page/s have not entirely finished loading. That is not happening on other sites. :hmz:

Gardenia, the server that should serve the webcam photos at the bottom of the page, is rather slow. That is why the little circle keeps going.

Is it just me or is there something wrong ?

My post tally has reduced by about 1000 in the last few weeks ...

ndloti there was a 'clean up' of old posts or some such so most people lost some of their old posts which were on pages/threads that were deleted. At least that is my very basic understanding of the situation. :lol:

Mine by 800 and I am battling to check out which 800. As far as connection is concerned, no problem here. It is as fast as my secretary around the desk :twisted:
