Forum has been - and still is - very slow, large post-posting delays and frequent 503s. Been going on for a week or so now.

Don't be so negative. During the last few weeks in the eastern DRC it took 20 minutes just to make a normal phone call. You have to wait for the right satellite to go around. Russian satellites work better than US satellites. Then you also only get connected when the whether is nice. The SA satellites can more-or-less be described as cr*p. The Chinese satellites work better than the others, though.

No sure what your point is. I'm only comparing this site with other sites on the same computer at the same time, presumably using the same satellites.

Same thing happening today. Every page takes so long to load that I can go and post on another site while I'm waiting.

The 503s are back and have been for a couple of weeks, random but frequent. Latest at 12.48 BST

Still more 503s

Just lost a post and had a double post. Long delays now with 30% chance of a 503. Pretty much unusable again.

It can't just be me? I'm getting 503s 75% of the time now.

Its hard for me to get on our site too, Tangle. Usually, its early in the mornings before 5 am...which is afternoon in Britain, I believe.

It's any time of day or night for me, and the time out is very long.
