    My experience is the of site being slow for weeks. Yes it seems much quicker to load today.

    I'm noticing the improvement too. Fingers crossed that it lasts.

    The site seems fairly slow tonight. Is there a problem with the server?

    Unfortunately I've not noticed anything different recently...guaranteed it'll slow down enormously in a couple of hours, and literally for about 2hrs it's dreadful..peak internet time on the US east coast perhaps. That being said, I'm unsure as to why it always appears to be worse for wear at regular times ( for myself at least ) but doesn't gradually get worse as the rest of the continent 'engages' with the web. It genuinely baffles me, more so when hitting 'my games' appears so swift yet the forum are painfully slow.

    I figured there must be two servers, the fast game one and the painfully slow forum one. But then, the fast game one goes slowly at peak times, which seem to be getting longer and longer ...

    It might also be that I was posting in a thread that had several posts made at the same time by three people. 🙂

    Five hours ago absolutely nothing moved, not even the game board page. Now it's OK. Must be something happening to keep people away from the keyboard in huge numbers ...

    I've done some tweaking to the forum database. This should remove the delay when posting to the forums, and should pass on some performance benefit in general.

    Once I'm done with the new RHP dev work, the plan is to change our hosting to a more cloudy solution so server resources can increase and decrease on demand. Right now, we are running on dedicated machines, and despite putting in years of flawless service, they need to be replaced.

    This must be why the forums were down today when I tried to access RHP.

    It was 7-8am here (MST), so I guess this was 2-3pm UTC.

    Something must've worked, because I'm not seeing any slowdown at all now.
