    I've noticed a sluggishness in response today that is worse than usual, and it does not appear to be a latency/BW issue according to some simple tests.
    Running out of memory? Excessive swapping?

    ATM, 93 (8 members and 85 guests) does not seem too heavy. We had 200+ users about aweek ago and it was still pretty fast.

    [Added content:]
    More testing shows there appears to be network issues that may be related. Significant changes in latency, and occasionally dropped packets. Latency average was around 259.8ms with a max of 1094.2ms and a min of 46.0ms. Normally, it is around 45-70 for most small ICMP packets from here to there.

      Take the hint: nobody likes hippies (not even forum software).

      How about TheCotMan's earlier problem with disappearing threads? Is this related to the UFO activity? Was The Dark Tangent's rumor post a sign of impending doom? Will this post be eaten by the Linux? Stay tuned for next year's exciting, uncancelled Defcon!

        I chalked to BW issues up to evil do'ers in our mitst. Thought it would clear up soon. Happening since Friday I think. Fine at night though.

          Yeah, lag can get bad sometimes, but its all being worked on. The forums will eventually be on a faster connection.

          As for that odd error message, I'll look into it.
