    I've also found it very slow for the last day or so, but I'd assumed it was a problem with my computer :(

    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 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.

    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

    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.
