Apparently one of our new boxes was misbehaving yesterday, which may have caused some site slowdown.

This should be fixed now.

Thanks, Simon

Yes Quickbeam -I was "Glad All Over" because my Mobile Broadband Alcatel Dingle was in "Bits 'n' Pieces". It's just "Like a Virgin". I can't think of a broadband song-title.

'I noticed it was slow yesterday but today it's as fast as ever' compared to other forums I use this is without doubt the slowest to load.

Interestingly I am 'logged in' on my dial-up and dongle connection. Am I an anomaly?

From time to time all heavy-traffic, database-driven web forums run a little slowly for a while. It's the nature of the beast, and anyone who says otherwise isn't understanding the way web servers work.

Obviously we would all like this site to zip along like a zippy thing all the time, and it does exactly that for most of the time - it's doing so now.

Our apologies, as always, for any inconvenience yesterday, but that, I'm afraid, is life.
