Quite frankly

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Im sick to death of the site going impossible slow at 7.30 every evening, what is going on, I love this site and I love posting and reading post but how can I when it takes 2 mins to open another page. My patience is wearing thin.
I dont mean to rant and make an unpleasant thread but what else can I do!!!!

    actually come to think of it when it's at it;'s slowest it can take the time of a normal 56k speed.

    Naaa, it's just that it's feeding time for the hamsters that power the server at 7.30, so they can keep going all night. They can't feed them earlier due to the Hamster Union rules on regular feeding without overfeeding.

    if you time it i think you will find it happens at exactly 7/30. strange. is it this place or BT? anyone know if it happens anywhere else? it can't be cos this place is extra busy ...it wasn't at 7/30 tonight but still ground to a friggin almosr halt.

    Im going offline for a bit. Mods, any explanation why this happens? :confused:

    Just a thought. If it happens at exactely the same time every night then there must be something running on a regular basis. Possible that the data backups are running. If so, change them to another (more unsociable) time. :p
