That is most of the lawn. Should I be worried? :|
only if you mowed over it!

Is it only me having problems with the site? The last week or 2 I have experienced 10 or more daily crashes. All of them server not responding except 1 SQL error, which was too many connections. The problems happen at all times of day, from early morning when there is only me about, to match day when there is a couple of hundred on here.

I've had it for what seems for ever and a day, AT. Usually it comes good after a couple of minutes, but there's the odd day when I have to leave it for a bit and then come back. I've put it down simply to the host server limitations as, no doubt, it serves more than just TW. It's not my end as I can always access other UK based sites as well as those in the U.S. of A. (including my own) when it occurs.

Happens half-a-dozen times a day. I lost the match-thread at half time on Saturday.

I keep finding I have to 'login' again. Sometimes 3 times a day ... & I'm not even using Apple.

Same here immediately north of the land of the free. All other sites including BBC load with no trouble. Firefox says no answer from site (or it timed out) and would I like to try again.

Kev - If you're on shared hosting, then it probably is the reason for the problems. I had similar problems with a forum on shared hosting years ago. I have a VPS, which depending on the site requirements might help. Let me know if you're interested.

Yep, I'm getting Iranian interference on a regular basis (and to cap it all, BT decided to cut the broadband off over the weekend five minutes after the match had started, b***ards).

That is the issue, unfortunately moving to something dedicated will cost me money that I can't afford and that the sponsorship doesn't cover.

I'll look in to it again though, see if I can get a deal.

Your article's gone up on the Home Page. If the site crashes badly now we'll know for sure it's Iran. :wink:
