Either my server is very slow or there is something wrong with TP???? It takes about 5 minutes to get into any forum. This is a true emergency!! Sam/Peter?

Hi Anne,

It's not you. It's the server. Something's wrong. But as I can see, it's back up now. :)

It definitely was the server. I couldn't get it to load for about 2 hours. It just sat there twiddling it's thumbs. Other sites loaded normally. Hurry up and start posting Anne, Ol' Cupcake may wake up from her nap soon!

At last! At last! You'd think I didn't have any other work to do, but my finernails are bit to the bone...

And I finally figured out how to cut down my photos! Woo hoo! No more shrunken thumbnails in the gallery!

I know! At one point when I tried to log-on it said "a website does not exist at this address" or something similar. I was worried there was a huge problem!

Hmm... I can imagine how worried the ladies were when they saw the error messages! I think they might even worried more than Peter and Sam themselves! Hehe...

See Sam...

Hien understands how seriously we take our posts. Thanks Hien!!! You're a peach!

You know people of TP, this is pretty sad...listen to ourselves and the desperation of not being able to log on or place a post. Has anyone heard of TP Anonymous? If you have, please let me know...must join, pronto!

Hehehe, that was Pete and me testing how 'cold turkey' would work out :)

Just kidding, I noticed this quite quickly and our host was at hand to resolve the issue (we were probably down for an hour or so though, GRRR!!!). Interestingly enough, this time it didn't have anything to do with terrible coding from my side, but some very uninteresting technical story that I won't bore you with.

FYI, one of our main priorities (obviously) is making sure the site is always online so the downtime of late is being worked on. Unfortunately, it can't be pegged down to one or two things but revolves around quite a few things, including significant traffic, a server that doesn't quite cut it anymore, maybe some small coding issues that are magnified due to the traffic etc. etc. Upgrading to a new server is the main thing we are working on now but these things don't occur overnight and aren't cheap so we're trying to find the best mix that the site won't grow out of in 6 months either like happened this time - which, don't get me wrong is a great thing of course as long as it doesn't crash the site at the same time
