Forum slowing down ?

    For the last couple of days at least (perhaps a week) I've noticed that my posts to the forum, which used to occur basically instantaneously, now take many seconds and I see a moving gray area in the upper right corner, overlaying the word "search". I have not noticed any change in my interactions with other sites, just this one. Anyone else experiencing any slowdowns?

    I've been doing some database cleanup which is very intensive. Shouldn't be more than another day or two.

    Ah HA ! A chipmunk in the wood pile.

    OK, thanks Greg.

    Golden rule of PF: if something is wrong, it's likely my fault :biggrin:

    Usually my assumption too but somehow I must have been feeling charitable today.

    I'm thinking it's time for a beer Greg. I know how you work; ... way too hard. :approve:

    Last round of cleanups. After today the forum should be speedy as usual.
