is anyone else finding it slow? not only that but I keep getting google pages telling me 'the page contains no data' or 'page unavailable'

Last night it just froze me out completly my cursor worked but nothing on the forum did.

I thought it maybe an IE7 problem but firefox is the same... ~x(

Sorry guys - nothing I could do :(

I noticed it started getting sluggish around 5pm BST and rebooted the server twice in the evening with no improvement.

So therefore it was either a server company bandwidth problem or a internet problem (some other random sites were extremely slow for me last night too).

Don't worry, feel free to complain - I get just as frustrated as everyone else, especially when I cannot do anything about it :(

Keep and eye on it over the weekend all :) If there are any more problems, I will report it Monday morning.

So slow, it's un-usable. Opera won't work or Chrome. IE7 & Firefox load sometimes and "no data" messages most of the time.

Thanks for the update Wedgy in the message area. I'm sure we all realise its out of your control but I think we're all at a bit of a loss without Iconic :)

Strange - IA's working fine for me in IE7, but keeps falling over in Safari and dropping out my broadband connection?!

Yep, the logs indicate:
First error was detected at 2009-06-06 19:51:00
Last error was detected at 2009-06-06 20:56:42
Downtime total 1 hour(s) 5 min(s) 42 sec(s).


There is hope that since the server went down, it may have done an auto-reset ... lets keep our fingers crossed :D

well so far it's much better. I've only been thrown out once this morning - perhaps the quality of my posts are getting better :))

Had a response from the server company . . No general issues with their network over the weekend, but they will look into the cluster wher our server resides. Please keep posting if the forums go slow or go down. I hear they went down again for a while just after midnight last night :(
