I hope that everything gets back to normal.

What's Up?

Sorry for double-header, FE.

Are you still having some gremlins?

Every time there is a big launch of something in the USA the site seems to crash. I kept trying to look at the iPhone 5 launch but it kept timing out.

I decided to go out for a meal with her indoors before she sets of for the USA and it is now back up but still pretty slow.

One of these things I think!!

I had major problems last evening.

I note all the responses about servers rebooting, and general site reliability, but I must say that this is the most unreliable site among those large sites which I visit regularly.

They do it now and again to remind us that we need to get out more...

A little more often than now and again, it seems each time they 'improve' the look of the website they have more problems.

Apologies for the site performance. It's hurting with the traffic levels we're experiencing - over 300,000 views yesterday alone.

We're looking at optimising the servers but have to wait for our current service agreement to run through before we can make significant improvements.

As you have noted these things happen around specific product launches.

Thanks for your patience.

I suppose logically that's a good thing, as the advertisers will like that level of traffic and the site will remain free.

It's just that when you're up to your * in alligators etc etc!
