Just lately i find this site splutters and jumps all over the place,i'm on ie9,is it me my machine or the site.Even replying to a post is now getting to be more trouble than it's worth. Sorry to moan but things do seem to getting worse,i've noticed some of the quieries seem very old and are on the top of the pile in each section.

I frequently get a server error message on the tab in IE9 as the page is loading.

By way of an update I have my laptop with me at my local bar and it is working like greased lightning. I actually brought it for someone to have a look at but after it needed to download an update for Avast for Windows 8 it just seemed to work ever so well. Hopefully when I get back home it will still be working but if not maybe the problem lies with my service provider although having said that everything else works OK with them.

Very confusing.

Final update. I had another friend look at my laptop tonight and he changed several settings in my wi-fi connection to my main broadband user and the site is now working perfectly.

It seemed to work well everywhere except in my apartment which clearly was not right. Sorry about casting aspirations but it is so easy to do when things are not going right.

Thank you for the update. I'm pleased to learn that all seems well at your end now.

As you say, when things don't go right we all tend to look around for someone to blame - it's part of the human condition.

The site is running very poorly again this weekin IE10.

Server error appears initially in the tab on every visit, page then loads but freezes for a few seconds while Nissan ad loads.

Apart from the occasional weekend glitch, I think it is getting better - I don't have anywhere near the amount of problems from a few months, or more, ago.

But why do glitches always happen at weekends??

"But why do glitches always happen at the weekends??"

Possibly to server overloads and no staff available to correct the problem, which as been stated on a number of occasions.

The site is running fairly fast this morning on Google chrome, and I notice that some of the previous days problems appear to been resolved. But I have noticed this morning, with a least one post, the poster name as been on the index list, but the post hasn't appeared in the thread. The poster was one of the god boys on the forum, so I cannot see it being a deletion, but I could be wrong!.
