Too much downtime. It is frustrating but I'm working on a permanent solution (increased capacity).

The server seems to be running slowly for me, especially on the blog. Sorry if anyone else is experiencing this, I'm looking into it...

Even the blog? It seems really slow to respond to me. :-\

Well, I'm pleased to hear it. :) I wonder why I'm experiencing issues. Today it has been taking 10-20 seconds just to load a page.

Is it just me, or has the forum been loading more slowly than usual for the last few days?

CPU was running unusually high which was causing the server to be sluggish. It is fixed now. Thanks for your patience, I know how annoying it is when the pages load slowly (or not at all).

Thanks for dealing with this.  Your efforts to keep the forum running are always appreciated!

Oh, thanks. :) It is a shame when things go awry because trouble-shooting takes time away for doing the creative stuff. For example, I had intended to write and post a review for the Dinotoyblog on Wednesday (my day off 'work work'), but ended up faffing around trying to work out what was wrong with the server instead.

My host says the problem this time was due to brute force attacks on the server, which generate many logs that take up space and have a knock on effect on other server functions.

Hey, even Youtube was down for some time the other week. If it can happen to Google, what chance do I have.  :P

Some of you may have noticed the Dinotoyblog was down for a few hours earlier today. It was just an issue with a setting. Otherwise, the server has been pretty reliable for the past year or so.  ^-^
