    About 10 minutes ago I got a database error then i couldn't connect to the site, it just timed out. when it did connect i got a message saying the server was too busy and come back later and I'm only getting on now to write this.

    pages are loading very slowly at snails pace

    just me or anyone else? ;)

    Hi all

    We seem to be running the server quite hard. There were 1900+ people online and I guess a high % were doing searches etc and the server got a little stressed.

    We have been trying to take some of the load off but there may need to be some little changes.

    Many thanks and sorry for the down time

    One like for you try. :)

    I'll take a look now.

    I noticed the Avatars next to posts as well now.
    Will that not effect the server overload more?

    EDIT:=- Works. :thumbsup:

    It can be re-installed at any time... See what other people think and if they want it I'll put it back. For to day we are doing the new search software...

    Many thanks

    Hi all sorry we had to sort out the new search that was causing a little problem with the database... Some of these mods take a day or two to bed in as we have to tweek the server...

    Sorry but I hope that's the end of it..
