Why is PF so slow?

    A lot of the times I access the PF forums, the response rate is very slow. Is there just a lot of activity, or is some type of maintainance going on?

    I notice this happening more and more. Yesterday was excruciatingly slow much of the day.

    It's been causing a lot of double posting.

    It's been causing a lot of my walking away from PF to get some real work done.

    I knew this would happen when we lost the old skin.

    It's got nothing to do with the skin.

    Do we know what the problem is?

    I had to take one, last parting shot for the old ways.

    Perhaps time for a clean out? Or even a hardware upgrade? - But this would mean down time for PF, which would bring back my withdrawal symptoms...:cry:

    yes I know what the problem is, it's pretty serious, once I can resolve it I'll let it be known

    True 'dat. :cool:

    I thought it might have something to do with the fact that my hard drive is failing.* Lots of operations are slow for me now and my browser quits often. I hope your hard drive is alright, since it must get constant activity.

    *No jokes, please. :shy:

    I know Greg's trying to fix some problems, so this may just be related to what he's doing, but in case it isn't, or it's endemic to me...

    I've been having all kinds of weird connectivity problems over the last day or two. Sometimes it says "database error" and some other times (like until a couple minutes ago) I see a different kind of error.

    Just letting you know, Greg, in case it's not something you're aware of.

    I'm not even getting errors, it just slows to a crawl, and then stops and refuses to load. :frown: :cry: It's Sunday! I don't want to do work today and PF won't let me play. :grumpy:

    You mentioned that you thought you'd had a post or two disappear in the "Warbird" thread; didn't witness any of that, however, couple days ago you posted to "Chemistry" on the 12C mass defect/binding energy question --- it ain't there no mo'. Did you delete it? Or did it pull a "trick" on you?
