Yeah, I'll bet moving sucks.  Still, I hope that this problem is easier to fix than it sounds.  Menard if you're reading this, please register, we need some more dirty jokes and you're the only one who can supply them in that quantity.

On which, that moving sucks, because the process is obviously very difficult and confusing.  Or did you misread my saying that I hope it's easier to fix.  Or is it my mentioning of Menard's dirty joke usage.  I'm seriously confused now.  Question

I've been moving these last two days; still in the process.  All the normal moving nightmares - U-Haul truck breaking down, etc.

The forum is just plain overloaded.  At this point, I might have to remove guest posting to fix the issue.  I cannot devote any more server resources to it, and I've tried every performance tweak I could.  The real problem is literally thousands of spambots trying to post.  Each one takes up some resources.  Even though the server firewalls the IP after too many spambot tries, they come back from a new IP.

Sorry about the move...I know first hand how much that sucks.

As for the issue...thank you for taking the time to post that. It isn't really a big problem overall and I was mainly posting to see if it was happening with anyone else.

I've noticed that the forum seems to slow down during the late evening hours between 9 pm and midnight.
Lately, the slowdown has been so severe that I give up in frustration and go to another site for a while and then come back here later hoping that it'll be faster.
Most times it is.

Those cursed spambots!   Hatred

I find it's lagging between 9am-12pm (UK time) and then also late in the evening, mid-afternoon I have no problems. It  is usually just a black screen for about 30secs, which is nothing really when you think about it. I also, just click on another tab until the page has changed.

My connection might possibly be retarded aswell.

For the last few days the site has been pretty popular on StumbleUpon, which led to a big increase in traffic.  I believe that is also part of what everyone has been seeing.  When that peaks, it is quite a number of viewers - and for some reason they hit all at once.

I'm still working on anything I can do to keep her level.  Just wish this wasn't happening in the middle of the move and Katie's injury.

Shoot, Andrew, I say take care of your personal business and forget about the forum performance issues.  It's not like lives are depending on badmovies.org having fast page loads.

Correct family first, my sister just had a emergency appendectomy ... good thing she was already at the hospital when it hit, then again she is a ARNP so where else would she be?

She was up and around in a couple of days and back to work within a week. Hope the Mrs. is doing well we'll survive with a slow forum.

I also wanted to mention that several times today a forum page will quit loading and I'll get, "Internet Explorer Cannot Display The Page" screen. (that doesn't happen on other sites)

It's never done that before.

Ash,

That's just your browser timing out.  If it does not get a response from the web site you have requested, that's the page IE displays.

Andrew explained that the server is being overloaded, so when you do a page request, it cannot respond within IE's timeout window.  Seeing that page is the same as the 'lag' you are seeing other times that just happen to be less than IE's timeout window (so you get the page eventually).

Hope this helps.

Yep, I've got the Firefox equivalent of that page a few time, it's just the server being overloaded.
