    This must be cutting down on your ad revenue by now.

    I would be willing to pay serious money to take ownership of this site and move it on to better servers.

    I used to say that too, but it has been going on for so long now it is annoying even me now. It is simply ridiculousthat this problem is still occouring so frequently and the webhost is either incapable or unwilling to fix it, in either case they need to be replaced with someone more relaible.

    That's a terrible justification for the continued outages.

    (had to deal with 10 minutes of server is busy just to quote this post)

    Yeah, there's been some analysis showing that in general you actually have a net loss of money if you cheap out and and don't get reliable servers.

    Pretty much that. This has been going on for months now, and they don't know what the problem is?

    At least for us :dunno:. If one knows, then maybe TF, but I doubt it.
    -> therefore I support the "alien" theory.

    The 'Users Online' box has been turned off, which should marginally improve things (and seems to have so far). Traffic surge probably hasn't helped.

    Apperently that did not worked since it happened again. If the current webhost is still trying to figure this out after it has happened for months, then it's high time for a more reliable webhost with reliable servers.

    It's becoming like the database error plagues of old.
