Will somebody please feed the hamster

The one in the treadmill that drives the generator to power the forum; I've never known it so slow, I could have  opened and read another forum while waiting.

No problems here all day. Maybe the hamsterís cousin is the cause if your woes. I suspect a rat is chewing the wiring somewhere along your line from the ISP, Mike.

I posted a reply to this topic last night, (first reply), asking, tongue in cheek, if there was another forum. I then made a comment about the delay in being notified of some posts. That reply has disappeared and there is no record of it in 'Show Own Posts'. Can someone please explain why?  ???

There is no record of it in the moderation log I'm afraid.  Did it definitely post?

There has been a Black Friday network capacity problem for some days affecting large parts of the internet.

There is also rumoured to be a lot of (Russian) troll traffic about Brexit eating bandwidth.
