Desperately slow again this afternoon, and a few timeouts. Again, my connection seems fine.

Re: Waiting for www.alfaowner.com...

Yep it's been awful for me - every other site is running fine but AO taking absolutely forever, although as everyone else is saying it's suddenly perked up. Does this maybe a couple of times for me though with the same symptoms. I'm on an 8MB Plus.net connection if that helps.

Re: Waiting for www.alfaowner.com...

I kept getting 'database error' which I've never seen before.

AO is often laggy, but never more than 10 seconds or so. Today was bad but it didn't stop me

Yep, me too - usually this sort of prolonged behaviour would either indicate that the site is under some form of DDOS atttack, and / or that some form of upgrade might be necessary. If it's not a hardware or DDOS problem, then it may be worth considering a move to Invision software - which is invariably more powerful & stable for running very large forums (no, I don't work for them!) - so maybe the continued growth & success of AO is just taking its toll?

I'm sure the admins are monitoring this & on top of the situation as always, & it'll be sorted before too long. Many thanks for all the hard work you guys put in - very much appreciated

Re: Waiting for www.alfaowner.com...

Hi All,

Two of the partitions were almost full (They hold logs for email etc..), I have cleared it now, I just hope it has fixed it.

Thanks Alfachic for your nice comments... AO really is growing as we predicted when we launched our "Going for growth" statement. It is a massive team effort by girls and boys that keeps this place running

I agree, I have to admit to have gone as far as blocking the analytics urchin script, once I did that my whole experience of the site speeded up.



Granted it's been a lot better lately so i'll switch the block off and see how it goes.
