Connecting to the forum is deadly slow
« on: July 01, 2016, 02:22:49 am »
Hi, since Thursday evening 30 June 2016, connecting to the forum is nigh on impossible.  Google Chrome 99% of the time, times out.  Firefox is deadly slow.  This morning, I thought there was a DDOS attack going on.  Connecting to other websites is fine, no problems whatsoever.  I was wondering if anyone else was experiencing this  :-\?

Well ok, maybe not. It's really up and down at the moment.

It's been slower since the 24th.  Funny how that works, it's like something major happened that day that may have overloaded the server....

Sarcasm aside, I'm sure it's just due to massive amounts of people navigating the main site and downloading Peppermint 7.  If it's on the same server as the forum, which I'm assuming it is, that would explain the slowdown that has been going on for a week now.  It will probably settle down and the forum will get back to normal speed soon, I'm sure.  Though, it is slower now, due to the weekend.  Don't expect it to get better until Tuesday at the earliest, at least not during "peak" hours in the United States.  It's a holiday weekend in the U.S., and some people will have 4-day weekends (not me) where they don't have to work, others take time off during this time of year.  That's a perfect time to try out a new Linux release.
