Singaporeexpats website

Postby ksl » Fri, 30 Sep 2005 4:17 am

I have this strange feeling that the expats website is getting slower and slower to load into my browser, and I am totally free from spybot & adware attacks.

It's so frustrating, I sent a ping to the site, and it came back with an average of 184m/s rather slow i think, the infrastructure must be faulty, anyone else experiencing problems.

Yes a bit slow this morning and last night I could not access for some time (I was redirected to a different web address with a message asking to try later).

Otherwise quite OK.

Very slow indeed, especially in the evenings, a few days back I couldn't even get to load the forum home page at all!

Oh, you bet me to it. I have been meaning to ask this too, but it's just getting to be to much hassle getting into the forum at times. I have definately noticed it.

Same here. However, I would like to mention that when the access to SEF is slow, I experience other problems. So it might be not on your side.

Of course, mine is the same as Sapphire's.
When you go in for a job interview, I think a good thing to ask is if they ever press charges.

Auntie you so glorious
In all you say and do
Go steaming through the market
No one as good as you
Push over peeps in taxi queue
And make your maid work hard
And don't forget those flip flop shoes
Big dresses by the yard
God save the Singa Auntie
Don't let her rest in peace
No-one in life can take their place
Their legacy's complete.

Once its posted you can 'edit' then delete.
