You may have experienced some problems with the forum yesterday and today.

Web hosting company was experiencing connectivity issues causing packet loss. Seems to have just reoccured.
 
I have and thanks for the explanation. "Packet loss" sounds painful. :)
 
Basically, about 50% of transmitted packets of data were not arriving. This meant that each request for data for a page or a picture had only a 50% chance of actually arriving.

Seems to be fixed now.

Paul.
 
The issue appears to have been a denial of service attack at a higher level. Slicehost say they are working on changes to minimise the possibility of it happening again.
