mmm, this was a problem. Interestingly, some of the aliases worked - such as www.nakedscientist.com, but not others.

I phoned the host - LCN - and spoke to someone who sounded terribly disinterested and who informed me that it must have been an "ISP caching problem".

This is a big retrograde step for LCN. In fact the reason I stuck with them for so long was that their customer service was always excellent. I sad to say that our days with LCN.biz / lowcostnames.co.uk are most certainly numbered.

This 'Urbanhotlist'  person who is selling the Nike shoes...I've just deleted (for the third time)...another six of his threads.

I don't think it's a person at all....could it be some kind of sophisticated advert bot or something ?

Surely, after having the threads deleted so many times, a human would give up creating all these threads...fortunately...I caught the last lot just one minute after they were created...

I posted this on the wrong forum, so here it is again:

Clicking on the arrow in the 'Last Post' column normally takes you to the last post. But, since the upgrade, if there are more than two pages to the thread, it does not work! (Same applies to this thread)

Any chance of a fix?

Has anyone noticed that the site seems to be showing a few symptoms of slowing down on occasion ?...It just freezes and I have to come back a few minutes later.

Could this be due to the zeta and diary threads having so many pages  ?

yes today i've been having trouble and assumed it was just me.

I was going to wait for the new forum to go live before slimming down some of the threads as the new software make it easy but maybe i should have a rethink.

Mam...I agree.

Ever since I came back it's like the site wants me to go away again......I can get in but many times today , perhaps 8 or 9 times, I have gone to submit my reply and nothing happens....except time-out time !!!

About time we had the new foum up and running but I know dave and Chris are very busy...

Well I would like to report that everyday for the last 3 days or so I have had trouble with timing out.. Usually lets me in intially but then upon trying to post or refresh or go back the bloody thing times out! Has been lasting 5 to 7 minutes at different times of the day!

There are times if I go up to my address bar and x the site out and then hit one of the old site links that are there in my browser history, then the possibility is greater that I get back on and it works better! so weird....

I HAVE HAD TO WAIT HOURS TO POST THIS !!!

KAREN MAM, you are NOT alone !!

Would you believe it has taken me three attempts to post this. The site has decided to have ANOTHER breakdown as I write this post about the breakdowns !![:)]

The site is awful in it's performance. I am getting fed up with writing long posts and then having them get lost in the firmanent that is the Internet Void...fortunately I copy and paste into Word before pressing submit.

It's taken me three minutes just to get to this thread to post this...well..172 seconds !!..YES..I a actually timed it !! (apart from the fact that I couldn't post this at all for a few hours !!!)

People are going to leave in droves if they can't post or are even more frustrated when they have written a lot and it's then lost !!...Especially newbies who don't expect the forum to not work !!

What is the reason for the transfer delay now ?...It's nearly October  !!..Please can we have the transfer soon !!

I think the mistake from the beginning was ever to assume that the migration would ever happen on schedule.  The problem has been the attitude that since we have a new system just over the horizon, we can ignore maintenance of the present system.  This new system is no different to so many others, just over the horizon is a mirage - there is always more testing, and more work, than anyone anticipated when they did the back of an envelope calculations (particularly when people are trying to do so much in their spare time).

Yes, I think we can regard that as a major outage - and the pity is that I see no explanation or apology for it.

Furthermore, it would have been nice if at least the moderators had been kept up to date with progress regarding what was happening, so that if others asked of us what was happening we could actually give them some useful information.

That might have been be nice! Maybe a friendly email shot to all of us!! Did either of you boys try the new forum when we were down...?

Sorry if it was down yesterday, I didn't notice it.

I don't think it was a maintainance issue on our part. I think there were a load of problems with our hosting provider as I know the new sever that I have been developing the new site went down for a while (along with their homepage), but www.nakedscientists.com seemed to be ok form where I was sitting. It is entirely possible that it was a horrible problem that appeared differently from different places. I will ask them what was going on.

Could you e-mail me if there is a problem as I don't think I am checking it as often as some.

Everyone I have been in contact with yesterday (5 different people) were suffering total loss of access for most of the afternoon and until the early hours of this morning (our time), and only very short periods during this time when something could be succesfully posted.
