These forums are very slow

I'm finding that these forums are very, very slow sometimes. Here is the footer from a page that took a long time:

I had a spate of posting things two or three times yesterday evening with things running slowly. Shockedops:

Some pages are retrieved lightning fast for me ATM, and others take an age - I'll add the footer info from a slow one if I remember when it happens again.

Looks like the same server as the last one.

Since I decided to keep a watch for slowly loading pages, they all seem fine.

I've looked at the footer from 5 slow pages now and they are all for the same server.

Yip, I just had a page noticeably slower than most others, although not as slow as some today.

Same one.

I belive it identifies the server that served the page so if there are slowdowns it can be isolated...

Thats correct Dan.

If you right click, then "View Source", scroll all the way to the bottom of the page, the 4th line up contains a string similar to the ones posted above.

This identifies the server which generated the page, and can be used when tracking / tracing problems.

I wouldn't be surprised if the server ID's get changed at some stage, as I remember Colin commenting about 'humanising' the string.

I was seeing this to but now seems to be back to normal again.

Everyone else seeing the same?
