    For the past couple of days, I have been having trouble with the forum. It starts around this time and goes for a couple of hours. The Backyard Chickens homepage won't load at all, and neither will the forum. The sister sites won't load either. I ran a virus scan on my computer, cleared the cache and try restarting. Other websites seem to work fine, and this one seems to work fine up until about this time. Is it really just me?

    Everything is zippy fast for me. Anybody else having problems?

    We do tend to get the most peeps online around now, so there is a possibility that it could be related. That said, if it was across the entire site (and all our other sites on the same server) we'd tend to get a LOT of complaints.

    None either at work or home.

    To OP:
    What OS are you running and browser version?

    It seems to be doing it again. I am using Internet Explorer 7, same as I always have.

    I've been having the occasional slow down to cold molasses speed for about 3 days but I've been taking it as a signal to go check the incubator [​IMG]

    Using firefox here.
