    Same here, during the day at work. Different machine though, so I thought it was just a caching issue, but I guess not.

    Thanks for the note guys. Should be ok now, it was just an extreme peak in traffic for a short while. Dyre, are your notification mails working ok now?

    I've just now been able to access the forums again. And, so far, I've not gotten any new email notifications since my report.

    Could these have been country-specific? I haven't had any issues accessing the site for about the last two weeks. This is before and after my move from BT to VM.

    Damn this place is flaky lately, Stu you gotta get on this man!
    I've noticed recently i get a lot of flaky-ness (yes it's a technical term, ask any dev on the team) in regards to page loading. On my desktop (Virgin Media UK since i know ISP Routes make a difference) i get some random dropouts during page load.

    Ran a few Tracert's and Pings (so if your servers don't like that, was all me) during the flaky periods and it does just seem to drop as the request hits your servers, so doesn't seem to be an ISP Issue. Pings also seem to just stop returning packets during the dropouts too so it seems to be a totally dead tunnel for a few seconds intermittently.

    On mobile (EE 4G UK via HSPDA + Chrome + Nexus 4), HH Rarely loads for me at all, it gets to the first 20% of the loading bar then just stops dead there and never returns a fail state, on occassion it'll load and absolutely blaze through pages (in a good way), best browsing experience ever on a forum, but that's very rarely

    aside from the initial issue prior to this thead appearing... i've yet to have problem crop up using this site at any time of the day or night..... even at 4 in the morning, it's instantly loaded.

    I have only been able to get on for the past couple of days rather quickly. Prior to this, and during the "problem", when I attempted to get on, it would show "www.hardwareheaven.com/community/"....and stop there with a white page. I got no 404 warning or any other such indication that there was a problem.

    In the rare instance where I'd actually get to see the forums, it would then stop and not allow me any input.

    So, as Ivan mentioned above, was/is it a country-specific issue?

    The last couple of days have been "heavenly". :)

    All fixed now. As the guys have confirmed, other than that period where we had some stability and content delivery network config issues all has been well. :)
