So far so good this morning both a home and here in the office now. But it was like that yesterday up till around 11 am and as the loading got heavier (traffic to the site I presume) it started hanging and timing out and kept it up till around 6:30 (most everybody in transit I guess). Slowed down/timeouts later around 8pm till late.

It's the loading of the google ad links that are hanging the forum for me. Could be that some of the google ads aren't particularly work office friendly??

Another 3 times since previous posting.

Pal,

Bad this afternoon. (12-1:30 - on a Sunday!)

It's either "connecting to x.singaporeexpats.com...
or "waiting for x.singaporeexpats.com...

and timeouts!

going shopping as I'm just getting aggro here. Will try later.

Worse than ever, google ads crashing the forum ever 5 minutes.

Does the forum really need google ads? Most of the ads are either totally non Singapore related or the links don't work.

I'm finding, at the moment anyway (lunchtime) that it's running pretty sluggish but still better than it was. But I don't know about this morning as I wasn't on much. Bloody work! :o

And now, every time I try to use the "view posts since last visit" link, I get a 404! If it doesn't timeout first! How?

IN fact, the entire search function doesn't work. Canned or trying to access the search function itself.

16:45, okay, it's starting to look like we are cooking with gas! Search engine is back up and pages are defo loading faster. Let's see where it takes us......
