"I know! Believe me, I spend much more time here than you do and I hate waiting for pages to load when I'm trying to get things done. So, as you can imagine, I'm constantly looking for ways to make the site perform faster." Grant Malcolm, site admininstrator.
Why is the site so slow?
Every page is generated live including the very latest information available. This is usually very quick - under 2 seconds per page.
Sadly we've recently been under attack from an army of zombie PCs under the control of spammers and other internet criminals. Where we might normally expect to see 20-30 "guests" on the site at one time, we've recently had as many 4-5 times that number of guests as a result of this unwanted attention. This places a fair amount of load on the server and drags down the performance for everyone. Hopefully the attention of the spammers will soon pass elsewhere.
Is there anyway of making things faster?
