    Site Outage / Slowness 24th June - 25th June 2016

    Last evening the site went AWOL for several hours. Kym rebooted the site server close to midnight and the site came back online. However this morning the site is very slow. Kym doesn't have access at present as he has no power. I will monitor for a while and see if the speed picks up, but may reboot the server again shortly, however the slowness appears to be network related, not server related. *Rick goes to look to check that he doesn't pay the bill in British Pounds

    So please bear with us, make a cuppa while waiting for that thread to load

    Apologies for the inconvenience.

    I rebooted the server again. Now searches (ie listing new posts) seem to have improved, but accessing threads and posting replies is still very slow. Going to keep investigating.

    The site appears to be getting back to normal now. Anyone still experiencing any issues?

    The IPV6 is still down, so we are running on IPV4. This could be impacting speeds for some. We have raised the issue with our hosting company.

    We are dual stacked, the server is configured correctly, there seems to be an issue with our host's network configuration (routers etc.)

    Ping is very inconsistent. We logged the issue with the hosting provider.

    Couldn't log on at all last night. Tried a few times. Nothing after about 5 mins each time.
    Today about a minute, open thread about the same.
    CC, Image editing OK.

    I'm finding the site too slow for tapatalk to work. It keeps timing out. It must have a shorter timeout than my big computer which does eventually come back.

    Actually, tonight, I didn't have a problem until I tried to hit that Brexit pole...

    Is it cause you stick your fingers (crossed though they may be) where they shouldn't be? Gotta keep the sense of humour at play when times are trying.

    Got nothing to do with where fingers shouldn't be. Sometimes the sense of humour depends on where the finger actually is. mmmm, sometimes slower is ....

    We appear to be back to 'normal' this morning.

    Some changes were made to routing tables that seem to have cleared the issue
