Service has been erratic all day, frequently long delays in both logging on and posting and then an all-evening blackout.

I notified the webmaste we were still having trouble with it. It's working better now. Maybe he was working on it.

The seriously slow speed of the board is an indicator that it's close to falling over completely. Whether it's too much archived material, a fault with the board servers or whatever, a blowout is imminent.

Can I suggest that you ask all members to delete all PMs that they don't need and ask the webmaster how the archiving system is connected to the whole board. In the past you've had seasonal boards and this is no longer being done. Before we all drown in our own rhetoric maybe we can be proactive before the inevitable occurs.

I would be willing to volunteer thatt all my Pizza-bashing posts be deleted. His posts without my foil would be most amusing.

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.

I don't know zip about technical issues but for about the last half-hour (9-9:30AM, New York time) the board has swung between quick access to two or more minutes to access a thread. This suggests that it isn't the volume of archived material that's the problem but server capability.
