This board wouldn't load for me last night, other problems today
« on: November 05, 2015, 02:51:14 AM »

Last night the board wouldn't load at all; today everything here is happening in slow motion. I am assuming it's a problem on this end; am I wrong?

Last night I wasn't able to access the board at all; today everything here is happening in slow motion. I am assuming it's a problem on this end, but I don't really know.

No, it's more general. I had the same problem and assumed it was at the other end, as it's happened before and eventually been resolved, and everything else was working fine.

Me too. Over the last day or so. Sometimes won't load, sometimes takes a very long time, but sometimes normal.

Still having problems I'm afraid - a known issue at the hoster which they seem to be having a little issue fixing.

Yes there is a problem with the server which is affecting everyone.  I'm chasing it up.

Well done, you stout northern fellow! After sending you an email, I tried again and it's no trouble at all. Sorry to have wasted your time, sir.

Update from web hosts. The server has been the object of a DDoS attack (look it up) which has left a backlog of email to process. The server is getting an upgrade and will need to be the-booted several times this evening.
Practical advice: don't expect the forum to work this evening, but if the action is successful we may be back to normal by Friday morning.
