    Sounds pretty similar to CUK General to me.

    The site is still being slow for me today.

    You're probably right, but it's not deliberate - it's just the way my Android phone works. I generally have a quick surf of the BBC news site then get back down, but that inevitably means opening the browser at the last page I looked at before shutting it down first.

    I think they must do a backup at 1:15 am too. I've got a habit of waking up at that time, and having a quick check at the last page I was looking at before bed (which recently has often been CUK) on my mobile phone. I takes about two minutes to refresh at that time.

    Fixed a long-term problem with JobServe where it wasn't returning nearly enough jobs. When we fixed it though it was writing a lot more results to the DB and was causing the slowdown. A few tweaks and seems to be running a lot smoother now. Let me know if any problems though.

    It's all the numpties posting stuff in Prof areas instead of General by mistake IMO.

    Yes, has been a bit slower - think it is an update to the contract search wizard that is hogging DB connections. Was out yesterday so will have a look this afternoon. Seem pretty responsive at present though.
