Had problems all day, 503 errors on and off during day, when I eventually get in very slow in accessing threads and threw me out at least once, froze at other times.
A bit better now.

Taken several hours (most of the evening) for the Forum to reach me here in Tenerife tonight.
Is it a capacity problem I wonder, or some other Website Host problem. Other Forums I use are all working fine. Perhaps the NGF Website is having an early Xmas Party and is a little hung over.  :D

Very patchy access for me for the last few days. Once I'm in it seems OK, but getting in in the first place has mostly been impossible today and difficult / slow for a few days - lots of 503 messages. None of the other websites I regularly visit are affected.

If/when  I get in  I'm contemplating staying in, open a new tab for other work.  It's getting beyond a joke!

Is it the software or the server that causes the problem? Will we get better service if we pay more?

You're still having trouble? I had thought that problems had stopped for most of today. :worried:

I know all you guys out there are doing your best to keep this Forum going but I think it might be time to ask some serious questions of your server/software providers as to what can be done to sort this problem out. Over the last couple of days I have had very limited access to the Forum.
Size matters - especially if you don't have a lot of space - and N gauge is the answer!

I have noticed that when you lads and ladies are asleep back home that the forum can be out of action for quite some time, this has been happening quite a lot lately, I have to try several times for up to one hour to access the forum.
Keep on Smiling

Just to confirm that it is very patchy here.
At the moment it's working (not as I would expect but acceptable) but at about 6-00pm I gave up as I couldn't get on at all.
Similar picture over the last few days.
Iíll get round to fixing it drekkly me Ďansome.
