    There is something wrong with our Vbulletin and server that is causing it to lockup and run very slow. I have done all i can do and the problem is beyond my scope. Even though i have been doing this for 10 years i still run across things i cannot fix. That being said, I have hired an expert to look at it for us. Lets hope he finds the problem and fixes it.

    Again, we apologize for the slow down of the forum and we are working on it.

    I'm starting to get used to my double posts. I'm twice as annoying with half the effort.

    Are you still on a VPS or did you move to a dedicated box? I've tried running VB on a high-end VPS before and it was an inconsistent nightmare, even with MySQL running on a separate machine.

    Yea, he's fine, thanks for asking. Just went to the vet and picked up his dog food. $80 for 27 pounds.

    I know. How are your holidays?

    i'm beginning to think the problems are all related to VBulletin. it's the same lag problem that SFN has always had. the Stern Fans site doesn't run on VBulletin and never has any issues, and they have more users than there are here.
