quote:Originally posted by chrisYes, the problem is that we're running from an access database which is not stable at high loads. All it takes is a few search engine spiders to start tucking in, and a few users too, and the whole thing grinds to a halt. On one particular day a month or so back three search engines arrived simultaneously and the whole thing just collapsed. Part of the problem was the gut-bustingly large zetacap thread ! Once Neil administered a liberal dose of forum-slimming liposuction (aka the delete button) everything calmed down again.We're actually going to migrate over to a much more stable mysql db at some point, but I'm currently just too overloaded to be able to do it.Chris"I never forget a face, but in your case I'll make an exception" - Groucho Marx
