    AF now has its own webserver - have you noticed an improvement in speed?

    We still have 2 more rounds of "improvements":

    1. Upgrading the database server
    2. Optimizing vBulletin with a cache system
    For me anyways, AF has been a TON faster today and Phandroid has been a little faster too. I'm excited to see how quick they'll be after a few more improvements.

    Let us know!

    Seems a dam site faster to me.

    Was going frustratingly slow for a good few days for me.

    Part 2 is now completed. Not sure what you're dealing with Trident but AF and Phan should be much, much faster and facing far fewer db and site not loading problems.

    Keep the reports coming in.

    I have told him, yeah, but I'm not sure there is much we can do about it. :( Hopefully our host can investigate it, but I think we're unfairly being blocked by a number of ISPs due to our email problem.

    Performance has increased. Am curious to see how the forums react under greater strain. Thanks for all of your hard work!

    Hi all - for what it's worth, the servers seemed to be performing adequately yesterday but this morning, I'm seeing lots of crazy time-outs, including right now, as I've been trying to post this feedback for about 10 minutes now. G'luck finding the gremlins!

    It's been very very slow for me over the last few days. To load this page - from the time I clicked on the thread on the "new posts" page to the time it was fully loaded - took 40.813 seconds (according to Extended Taskbar in Firefox).
