    @GCAdmin1 over the past few days the site has really been starting to bog down again. It keeps getting hung up when either changing forums or trying to submit a reply. Sometimes have to click things twice to get it to refresh, often resulting in duplicate threads. I've noticed others having the same problem.

    I just tried to open multiple new post tabs and they all failed.

    I thought it was just me. New posts can take 20 minutes if there a few pics, and I find if you reply to the last post on any page, your post will take forever as well. Sometimes even trying to get in here has been a pain this week

    Very erratic. I'll try to open a post in a new tab and it just sits there. I'll try to open another post in a new tab and it's instant. Five minutes later the first tab opens.

    We're aware. It's all on our end with a malfunctioning update that is rapidly draining available site memory and causing the slowdown. Tech is working on rolling back and repairing.

    Was it a general Windows 10 update, my work laptop is acting a little weird too.

    Same here, running Safari. I could go to the kitchen and make a sandwich in the time the site takes to make up its mind, and God knows I don't need another sandwich.

    I'm trying to figure out a way to politely let you down gently on this offer.

    A sandwich of canned tuna or salmon (unless we have leftover fresh salmon) stirred into prune yoghurt (or whatever flavour is available) with chopped onions. Fresh homemade bread is best of course, but generic whole wheat will do.

  13. Yoghurt instead of mayo? Get the fuck out of here.

    @davetcan Sorry for being the cause of this derail with my silliness.

    The site is extremely slow/bogged down this morning.
