I have got in touch with the hosting company and they are aware of some issues with the server we are on. Supposedly they have been looking at this overnight, which would explain why those of you who browse during UK night time will have had issues.

If this doesn't improve anything then I would look to upgrade, either through AT's help of through the current host.

The sponsorship covers the current hosting costs to the penny, we don't make any profit. It's £20 at the moment and to get a dedicated server would be £30 a month, so it's an extra £120 a year for the upgrade.

Some of our postings have gone missing from this thread. I blame the Iranians.
Anyway, today wasn't as bad as yesterday. In fact I've only had three kick-outs (8:04, 9:05 and 11:16am) all day so far, which is a vast improvement on yesterday.

I could have given them to the second if I thought you'd be interested, and the duration in nanoseconds.
Today's kick-outs have been slightly longer but again only thrice: 9:40, 10:04 and 11:05am.
I will over the course of a week or so apply standard deviation to the concatenated daily results to see if we have any significant pattern. Now THAT'S anal.

No.

My earlier post disappeared.

The last couple of days have been almost delay free, even logging in has produced no error messages. It looks like the host solved a problem. Thanks Keveh.

Still some problems with me, though a little better.

Maybe it is a collective quota. There's plenty around at the moment...
