ASF running slow at the moment due to some unexpected server issues. Techs currently working on it. Hopefully it will be sorted out soon.

OK, still having issues but hopefully page loading times have now improved. I will continue to monitor the situation and see what can be done to improve website performance further.

I think it was my fault.

I am testing a new method of winning the Comp and picked GIB as it's name in no way reflects its business nor the geographic location of its materials' interests, every price sensitive announcement caused a drop in price this year and it is at an all time low.

As I pressed reply in the July Comp thread there was a quiver of the screen, not exactly a flash and then it took about one minute and one half to load the reply.

ASF has only come back on just now for me.

I will leave it go until tonight to post in the GIB thread.

Once again my apologies.

It seems there is a few that have had a problem getting into ASF website last night and early this morning. I don't why but thought @Joe Blow might have a few answers.
I was one of those, I cleared my history and turned computer off and on to see if this made any difference but this didn't help. I could get onto all other sites but ASF.

I dare say Joe is still having issues from early in the week.

Likewise.. no matter what I tried different device/browser's etc. couldn't load ASF last night but other sites were fine.

Yes, there have been some connection issues since yesterday afternoon. My apologies for the inconvenience. I won't get into the details, but it should now be resolved. If anyone is still encountering connection issues, please post in this thread when you can and let me know that you are having difficulty accessing ASF.

I could not access ASF at all from about 7pm last night until just now, but I'm glad to see it back again.

I hope the cause of the outage was not malicious.

I tried going on to the ASF Facebook page but there was no information there.

If we can't access ASF at all we can't post here, so is there another way of finding out what is going on ?

It seems to be spasmodic. Couldn't access the site last night, was able to do so earlier this morning then not but now able to. Something is unstable I guess.

No, I'm not that something by the way.

Sometimes it's difficult to know if a sudden spike in non-human traffic is malicious. Even if it is malicious often it's difficult, if not impossible, to know why.

There was an attack some may remember about a year ago that was malicious because I refused to take down a thread that overseas based scammers wanted taken down. That attack lasted a few days and caused an extended disruption to service.

In future I will try to post on the ASF Facebook Page if there is a significant disruption to service. This one took me by surprise. I didn't expect that it would last as long as it did. If you haven't already, please follow the Facebook page for updates.

How about a quick summary to your twitter account? I quit facebook (Zuckerberg) but I checked your twitter for info.
