I think it slows down in response to people posting about the speed of postings!

I think it slows down whenever they're too little people online

I haven't been on much in the last couple of weeks.
You know why?
Because every single flipping time I go on its slower than a tortoise attempting to run the Marathon.
Is Mr. Demotime about?
Can he help?
If not him, how about Sparks Moderator UK?
PLEASE do something, I'm VERY annoyed.

@Eddy

Hiya. Yes I have been away for a little while but now I am back on UK shores and will be staying here indefinitely (unless I go on holiday etc). Seems like ages since I was here anyway. Hope all is well with you :-))

Yes CALI, you have got me there, that is exactly what has happened. IT can either be amazing, or awful. Computers just seem to, well, fall asleep after having them for a couple of years.

Computers are only appreciated if the persons who use them learn how to use them correctly.

It's like riding a bicycle, allways use a saddle!

The opening page of allsparks has got rather a big flash file that needs to be downloaded before opening. I've noticed that it has been also slow to open on many day, today too.

Maybe network traffic is being squeezed a bit on the allsparks host.

I really really hope they get to sample fish suppers and irn bru when they come to Inveraray.

Ron and Russell if you're reading this - you can buy Irn Bru in that wee shop in LA which sells British things!!

Oops, this should probably have been posted in Stuff & Nonsense
