FORUM MOVE THIS WEEKEND

Postby stevemc » Thu May 09, 2019 2:25 pm

advanced warning, the forum is moving hosting sites this weekend so you may have some downtime and some posts may be lost in the move.
this should restore the speed to the site as we have had some lag issues of late. nothing to do with the forum just the internet.

We are also looking into hosting pictures ourselves depending on the costs envolved. will keep you all update as things progress.

Thanks for your understanding during the move

Ta for the heads-up, Steve. I've been wondering why the site was so slow on occasion. I had assumed it was my computer. Good luck with the transfer this weekend. I hope it runs smoothly and doesn't destroy your weekend.

The site has now moved to the cloud so speeds should improve and not loading issue should be rectified. there may be a few times until the site settles in its new home you have a few hickups.
I was sat in a field yesterday being told the site is down again :) by fellow memners i was with enjoying the sun.
I do not recommend sitting in a XJ40 trying to fix the site via a mobile in the bakeing hot sun.

Thanks for all your understanding during the move.

We still love you Steve :lol:
Fact is you were there on the day after working on the forum at 3 in the morning and that is greatly appreciated by the rest of your apparently absent colleagues ;)
You could have sat in my car, did I tell you I have working air con :lol:

The forum was still slow for me this evening, but now tonight, it’s the fastest I’ve ever experienced it! For me it’s definitely now running beautifully. Thanks for your work and perseverance!

I still get logged off on a daily basis pretty much and website unavailable at least few times a day :roll: Then occasionally it sprints like an XJR for a short time only to slow down to X-Type 2.0 diesel territory where I have to wait 15 seconds for a page to refresh, clearly something is still not right :roll:
