    One thing - pages don't seem to be fully loading: the 'connecting' circle in my browser keeps going, with the message 'transferring data from farm4.staticflickr.com'. Doesn't seem to affect the page much, though.

    Seems pretty good now thanks.

    Mind you late at night 2300 onwards, there seems to be a fair delay between clicking onto a main thread, but once it opens, I can access the individual threads pretty quick with responses being faster now as well, but it just seems changing from say 'Gen Chat' to 'Wolves' takes about 15 - 20 seconds...

    During the day, it's perfect.

    Could just be me, but site has been so slow as to be pretty much unusable at times tonight

    It was fine earlier on, but now it is very slow indeed.

    Why does it always take forever to get on this site when its late in the day, and why do double posts seem to only happen at night and not in the day

    After 10pm it's slow as hell.

    I believe it's when the site backup is done.
    Socks before or after trousers, but never before pants. That's the rule.

    I posted a reasonably long thing the other night at about 1050pm and after waiting for it to appear, it came up with the message that it had timed out after 30 seconds so it got lost so I went to bed.

    Can't the back up be done around 2 or 3 or 4 am when no one's on it?
    Though I think this was asked back at the beginning or somewhere.
    Not the end of the world but a pain in the arse and very irritating, though I've lost a few in similar fashion, I don't recall ever having a double post...

    The site needs a remote backup & it depends on whether those kindly running it have any control over when this happens.

    Given that none of us pay anything towards this sites costs (& there must be some) then we may have to accept some issues
    This year we will mainly be conquering Europe

    I think that due to the late World Cup kick offs, more of us are trying to post at a certain time and therefore noticing the problem.

    Mr Parkin has hit the nail on the head though with his post.

    Forum down to a crawl again. It's around 22:30 every night. I know why but it's still annoying.

    Seems fine down here - but then again when compared to most things in this part of the country it doesn't need to do much to seem fast

    The internet is far too complex to explain. Just look at what this blog says....
