Shouldn't say this, but it's running better than it has in a long time now. Last time I said that, a page or 2 back, it almost stopped right then and there, when trying to post my reply.

Here's hoping!! :)

Edit:

Post actually went right through!!

Fine here today

For the most part, fine here too. The occasional post will be sort of slow but not too badly.

Getting intermittent slowdowns loading pages, some taking upwards of 30 seconds to load, seems to be getting slowly worse tonight

Haven't been having any issues for a while now. Maybe I'm not on at the times where it happens!

Remixed, what's a hampster? :shiftyninja: :rofl:

Edit: took me longer to write that than to post. :)

Sorry, couldn't resist. I really do think you mean a hamster though.

Completely Off Topic:-

I realise that I should probably let this go. As a person who was always 'into' the English language, I find spelling mistakes a little grinding. But whatever, I rarely worry about it.

I just thought that you were maybe unaware of the correct spelling. But to insist you are correct.... well.

If you can give me a link to what you think it is, fine. But it is not in any of the dictionaries or encyclopaedias that I own. (A lot!)

If you want to believe you're correct, fine. I don't agree with you though.

Back on topic:-

I haven't had any real slow downs today, but it is taking slightly longer today than yesterday. Not worth worrying about though.

It still seems to come and go for me. At times it is fine. At other times it's slow as crap.

Loading threads is running fine, but posting is taking forever for me today, hitting post and watching that little square pattern at the top right forever, 'saving post' shows at the bottom and sometimes never refreshes the page, although clicking back into the thread from New Content link shows that my post has worked

This could be solved by migrating to vbulletin. Vbulleting can scale more then IPBoard can. Vbull powers Something Awfuls forums. They currently have (958am MST) have 6,820 registered users logged in. 173,599 users total. 3,157,920 total threads.

138,528,681 total posts. 3,143,336 archived threads. 79,580,687 archived posts. Ive jest to experience slowdowns or downtime with them.

I think there are too many customisations to this IPB to migrate to vBulletin, iirc it is even a big hassle upgrading to newer versions of IPB

I really haven't had any problems the last week or so. The hamsters must be well fed and ready to go.

Anything scales well if you throw enough hardware at it :p
