There where 30'odd bots reading a lot of pages causing server to be put under a bit of a strain. hopefuly it should even out a bit now they have been blocked.
Is "bots" the new pit vernacular for EEs?

Its not bots this time. Forums become quite busy and struggling to cope. Always working on optimization.
Let me ask you one question. Is your money that good. Will it buy you forgiveness. Do you think that it could. I think you will find When your death takes its toll All the money you made Will never buy back your soul.

Jus' saying like........

Two attempts at posting earlier.........true slug/static speed waiting to see "will it-won't it" be going up.

Both times 57 seconds from clicking "submit" to fading to "SQL Error" screen.........switch-sites-come back......the post has gone up.

The innards need a good oiling methinks........Keep trying Andrew. :thumbs:

Dont want to count my chickens just yet. Seems to be faster browsing, posting to see.

Chamges made to forum search feature. Delay added between searches and must be registered to use it.
