EU here, it's been running super slow this last week.

I notice there's a lotttttt of guests shown every time I check the page footer (orders of magnitude more than registered users online basically always) so I'm wondering if it's a hosting issue, too much traffic. If that's the case and there was a whip-round for donations I'd happily contribute $10-20 because I like this place and I always learn something from people here on a regular basis.

Would also be up for a whip-round as I love this place and would hate to see it ruined by bots and the looming dead internet phenomenon.

Yep, problems here too, with Safari on a MacBook Pro specifically but also Firefox, and it happens at home and elsewhere so it's most likely a site issue. I've had to log back in a few times as well.

Average load to do "egosearch" (aka Your posts) and Unread posts is between 20 and 60 seconds. Fortunately I usually combine checking OSG with my first coffee of the day so I can just have that while waiting, but when it takes the same again to post a reply it's kinda crazy.

The guests actually isn't wildly unusual. A lot of them end up being search engine crawlers. 58 users is almost nothing for a webserver's handling capabilities, though.

Yep, super slow here at the moment too.

In a way I actually don’t mind, because it encourages me to get off the internet and do something ‘real’.

Agreed, perhaps it's either a) luck or b) powers that be have done some server-side/hosting related stuff to fix it (probably turning it off and on again).

It's funny because we used to have TVs on the walls in our old office (before I had my own individual office in a different building) and this is what we had on the TVs above our workbenches.

Ah, days back when Graham Linehan still had a career :w00t: still the show was awesome and the title music/sequence especially.

Suspect it's due to the absence of those 58 'guests' trawling the site. There were 2 last night and 11 now.
