Desperately slow here in western Canada so I've been browsing a couple of threads on other sites between refreshes here.  My problem is compounded by the fact that I'm trying to cheap out by using campground wifi and all the pipeline workers are getting back to their rigs right now.  I think they all watch Netflix or more likely some kind of porno as soon as they get home but this board has been slow all day.

 What is causing the slowness? Is this a regular thing here?

Still really, really, slow at this posting time.

No, as a constant addict here for many years, this is not a "regular" issue.

The volunteers who keep this baby going are working hard on our behalf, to find the trigger that has slowed things down in the last little while, and today, grossly slow!

There are many software interfaces that intermingle to give us this experience, somewhere, one of them is rebelling.

Phil will find it, beat it into submission, and all will be well again.

He always does.

happy coaching!

Shoot our molasses flows faster than this on a 30* day!

But keep in mind the powers that keep this board running do it in their spare time and for free.

So at least it's still here. (slow as it is it can't go anywhere! Wink )

I'm sure it'll get better.

It is SLOW here too. However, I know that Phil works hard to keep this place up and running. Thank you Phil. I am glad that you do!

And for the rest of you MCI nuts? Don't forget mcibustalk.com. Some of us are over there too. Great hangout. Actually, anybody is welcome, just as long as you like MCI's.

Thanks again Phil, and the powers that be. I am grateful.

I'll say what I said on the other board:
The slowness drives me crazy because if it was on my hosting service, we'd have it straightened out in under an hour.  Get one of my Linux says admins to "look under the hood", and the correct adjustment would be made in short order.

Like a good mechanic that knows what the problem is and can go right to it.

I suspect that there is one or two little things that are misconfigured that are blowing the performance to smithereens, similar to an air or fuel restriction, the server has a bottleneck somewhere causing it to run poorly.

I'd recommend they move it to another hosting service ASAP.

I think your web host may be having issues with the database servers again, I have other clients with wordpress sites that have suffered badly under them and had to move.

PM me if you want help.
