    Excellent news. Can we also double the amount of RAM in the mods?

    We doubled the RAM on the server - on AWS - no expense spared for you all. Hope that also helps. Any probs post here.

    Pressed the back button a few times after paging through a thread then replying to a post and got this... (It doesn't appear to have actually stopped me using the site though!)

    Just a quick update: it seems there have been a lot of web crawlers of the more useless kind hammering the site of late. These have now been blocked, which will hopefully make things run more smoothly.

    I've also been working out some stuff which will shift some of the load that currently gets imposed on the database onto more suitable technologies (memcache, to be precise) which we'll look to get deployed this week. And I'm looking into a database upgrade, which will further improve performance. So things will hopefully have improved somewhat as of this morning, and will improve some more in the near future

    Will stick around a little longer, but can't be bothered with the constant server errors, lost posts, failed connections etc. for too much longer. I guess the forum doesn't have the traffic anymore to really justify the investment, so fair enough, but it may be worth killing it in that case.
