What is it with the PCA site?

The site seems to load in a very strange way and it always now spits and starts and jumps all over the place.

I have a iMAC with Mountain Lion and Safari 6.0.1. No matter what I do, it never seems smooth in its operation.

It works, but I get giddly trying to see where the pages are going to with their jumping up and down. Is it because of the various adverts or is there something more fundamental to the/my problem?

Cheers

Over the last half hour, the speed of 'refreshes' has picked up, and the RHS scrolling is much better. [I have not changed anything else on my computer] so the improvements (however fleeting/permanent) are solely due to PCA's unseen technical boffins.

...onwards and upwards!

No need to apologise, you're not the only one, and it's not your fault.

Thanks to those who said it was JAVA that was the cause, I have shut down JAVA on the IPAD and for the last two days have checked over this period and the verdict no pages jumping, steady as a rock and its like Superman it fly's . Just goes to show that you can point the finger the wrong way, sorry PCA I thought it was you.

Got this when I posted my reply, came out of PCA and came in like FE said and my reply had been posted but I did notice that the reply was not posted below as I was writing to read and alter. Probably going to get SITE ERROR again as it is not there now.

SITE ERROR

It appears the site had some difficulty proccessing your request and has errored internally.

An email has automatically been sent to technical support.

If you would like to tell us more about what occured please email at our webmaster address webmaster (webmaster@pcadvisor.co.uk)

This site is getting beyond a joke now.

It has taken me something over seven minutes to log on and add a post to my schnorkel thread in Speakers' Corner.

To get to add this one has taken nearly as long, and I've not hit "Post" yet.

I know they have problems, but so do other sites at times, and they all seem to get them sorted much more quickly.

It is back somewhat improved now, but I have to say, and I have been very careful in the past on this point in refraining from saying it, though others have, it is not a good advert for a PC magazine to have such interminable problems as are going on at the moment. In real terms, it has not been as reliable since the major change many months ago. It is obviously an on going saga, but it really does need to get sorted now otherwise I suspect Forum Members will be gong elsewhere. That would be a great shame because there is an awful lot of extremely useful and helpful information that comes out of this particular Forum.

How far is the "repair" from really being completed?

Cheers

Oh! the posting is still hit and miss with the error message coming up. Trying to get to the last page on a thread is also somewhat of an adventure as well. So it is not quite repaired yet.
