About 15 minutes ago, the site was unreachable for me for about 30 seconds.

For the last 2-3 days I cant get pan through any thread without getting cut off by my browser. The only way to get back in is to reload the homepage from my favorites. Strange?

Your browser is cutting you off? that sounds nasty.

Doesn't sound like a site issue and has the whiff of something local, but over the next few weeks there are going to be some changes here anyway, most importantly the host, and I hope to iron out most or all of the glitches that we have learned to live, during that time.
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

The server in Houston is really struggling today and is affecting the speed of our site.  I have informed the host and hopefully things will get better shortly.

Thanks for your patience.

It happens most days I would guess it's a Cron job run on the main server to reboot a service or something.

Our host seemed to have some kind of catastrophic failure this morning as when I checked our server status, not only were we down but about 30 of there others servers also had problems?  we are up again within an hour of me sending an urgent request and I see the last post here was around 7am GMT, so we were probably only down for 2 or 3 hours.

It is our first major glitch since the move and but otherwise I find them a great improvement from our last host.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

PS. The server is still not 100% functional so things may still be a little fragile for a while.

I realise we just had another lil blip and I am in contact with our host to get to the bottom of why the server is starting to act up.  It may be the MORPG I am running from a different domain but from the same server that is causing it, but so far that is not taxing either the processors or bandwidth.

It does fix itself a hell of a lot quicker that our last host, so I am still happy with the service.

Hmm...

I haven't been any problems with the site in weeks.

Probably because I am coming and going weird times.
i'm waiting for someone to start an antisocial networking site.

I realise we just had another glitch with the HTTP service going down.  The host has set up a more aggressive monitoring system for our server so that outages can be resolved quicker if that is possible.  Anyone know what time it went down exactly?

Sorry Mish.  Something is pegging the server at the moment and I have informed the host of it twice this morning.  The server load is 10 to 20 times what is healthy but it is none of my sites that is doing it so I have to wait until they find the culprit (or error) and resolve it.  We seem to be unlucky as I check all their servers and ours was the only one with problems, but they are a really good company and are all over customers' complaints like a rash.  I expect normal service to resume shortly.
