Site update

I won’t bore you with the minutiae but the site’s current problem/s seem to be revolve around the theme (appearance of the website) and database issues. A temporary site upgrade (increasing the RAM) was made yesterday afternoon in order to see if that resolved the database issues. It appears to have somewhat as can be seen by the home page loading faster but the OT still lags a little because of the number of comments, which probably indicates the database issue is still lurking somewhere in the background. So the plan is to continuing the process of isolating the issue until it betrays itself.

I will update this post with further news as it appears. Hopefully this can be resolved shortly.

Thank you for your patience and offers of support.

See you on the OT.

    Appreciate your efforts.

    I remember the Doomlord’s travails along similar lines. Running a blog largely on your own is not for the faint of heart.

    Good to hear (as you mentioned in the OT) that readers with expertise are offering their assistance.

    I think you find that’s just a quirk in the software and there’s no conspiracy.

    Many thanks, Dover. The Cat is a life-raft at times for many of us.

    We can come here and vent, and catch up, and be informed and also have a laugh.

    Good luck with the fixes.
