    This one's quite tolerable; occasional problems editing, but generally OK.

    Re: Server Needs a Supercharge

    Thanks for that Bob. I sent it to our hosts who say:

    Traceroute looks fine (very good infact) so I am a little puzzled as to why they would be seeing performance issues.
    Would you be able to provide a traceroute during a period of site slowdown?

    Will do, Red - but as I said, things aren't too bad for me. You need a tracert from someone with a really pathological case.

    Re: Server Needs a Supercharge

    Hi Red5
    .
    On weekdays, the problem seems to occur between the hours of 4 p.m. and 11 p.m. or midnight (Central European Time). Weekends seem to be different.
    .
    Since everything's working fine at the moment, I'm going to wait for the "problem time" to arrive again and then I'll do a "tracert" for you.

    Re: Server Needs a Supercharge

    Hi Red5
    .
    It's now just after 11 p.m. (CET) and it seems that I might finally be able to post something now.
    .
    I "lost" the forum between 4 and 5 p.m. CET and have been trying ever since to get it back. Sometimes nothing at all loads. Sometimes I get a partial page and then everything just stops. No other website was a problem during this time. Only the UsingEnglish site didn't work.
    .
    .
    Here is a traceroute from earlier today when everything was fine:

    Here is a traceroute from 9:00 p.m. At this time I couldn't even load a partial page. Nothing at all loaded:

    I knew nothing about "traceroutes" before today, but I've now done lots of them since early this morning. The only thing I've noticed is that values for numbers 5-8 have been in the 60s and 70s when the site was loading without problem.
    .
    Do these numbers help at all?
    .

    Re: Server Needs a Supercharge

    Thanks a lot, Red5. You all have been unreachable again today. I'm counting myself lucky at the moment, though, since I've managed to get you back at such an early hour (just after 10 pm).

    Re: Server Needs a Supercharge

    Hi Red5
    .
    I don't know whether you've managed to adjust something, but this is the first time in a while that I've been able to log onto the website at 6 pm (German time). Wow!

    Re: Server Needs a Supercharge

    Glad to hear it; no need to set the alarm clock to visit the site.
