Just out of interest, what happened to the forum software upgrade that was talked about last year.

'tis planned for Christmas ...

Ooo Christmas Engineering Work does it appear on JourneyCheck yet? I suppose that is to avoid having RRS.

Server down at around 15:45 ... database issues.  Reverted to 15:00 backups - sorry that I have lost about 45 minutes of posts.

Coming back up / images and Avatars may be a few minutes yet

Not quite server issues - looks like our hosting company had a network issue a few minutes back; back now - looks solid but can't be 100% sure.   This is something of a test post.

Things seem a bit slow this morning. Might be my end, or does the system need a tot of something?

There has been an issue for about 12 hours.  It is not at your end, nor at our server, but somewhere in between - someone's router or routing tables somewhere are playing up.

I am accessing the server presently through my phone and it's running blisteringly fast.   I can jump onto the server via an intermediate machine from my normal connection, but getting there directly is intermittent / a problem, even using the lowest level "ping" commands.   I wondered whether to report this to members, but looking at server loading, it is little changed to I think it only effects a very people and I did / do not want to scare the majority for a small issue which I would expect to be transient - cured without any inputs from me.

My PC ground to a halt at 2100 last night, just as I'd cocked up quoting and replying to a post. Lots more people online, playing games and streaming.

Thanks for that. Usually I check my links after posting (and on other forums at the preview stage, but the Coffee shop preview has never worked for me). But at that stage my PC had ground to a halt and I was unable to access any website. So I went to bed.

Issue ongoing and intermittent - hit it again a few minutes ago.  But by the time I did a "traceroute" it was back. Any report at the moment to Internet companies would be along the lines of "somewhere between Melksham and London - not near either - there's a dry joint in a circuit that occasionally flips out for a few seconds".   I have had no trouble going from Melksham to London via Fremont.

A couple of issues with our server which I'm working on over the next few hours - there may be the occasional signal checks on this afternoon's services as I try and get more quarts that usual in our pint pot.
