I am experiencing the same slowdown... is there any particular reason?
Me too - for the record!!
Well its all over the country then lol as its as slow in Cornwall!! and i thought its because were at the end of the line !
No such problem here.
I've also found it very slow for the last day or so, but I'd assumed it was a problem with my computer
yep mines being really slow but fine on other websites, hmmm....
Same problem here all other sites working at normal speed.
I have asked John if he knows about any problems with the hosting server, or something similar.
I'm not saying this is definitely the cause but I would suspect one of the sites that tmp refers to when building a page is non-responsive. It may be ads.shoppingads.com as when I try to ping this manually I get a timeout...tmp came back up to speed for me when I temporarily blocked that URL.
Woo! Sped up again.
Hmmm, sorry folks but yes, tMP does seem to be experiencing some technical issues. I have noticed that the server has restarted some services itself (self monitoring control software I'll have you know ) - but I've no idea what is causing it. I have also had many bounced emails from members, and lots of error messages (gobble-dee-gook to me).
However, I have reported this to the hosting team and I hope they get to the bottom of it soon.
Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
You are no where near the end of the line mate, infact a lot closer to the front than I will ever be, lol
Hello Aussie i did mean country as the u.k lol,and its true but you are a lot nearer to the back of that line!!!
tMP was off for a couple of hours this morning but I do not see any improvement yet
I'm having withdrawal symptoms 'cos I'm not getting a quick enough fix...! It's taking ages to get anything I'm afraid. :ranting2:
my tmp is feeling much better today :biggrin:
Yep, all things seem to be sorted now. Apologies for the inconvenience... though I still have no idea why we were on a go slow...?!
Given the growth in members and posts, I know it's about time I upgraded the server again, but costs and all that... , maybe next year eh!
Do shout if there's any further issues though please. Thanks.
I didn't experience any slowing down here in the USA.
