My access problems have lasted somewhat longer, but at last I am able to use the forum properly again. If anyone has noticed someone has gone missing for a while then let theoptom know - he should be able to email them. (Lad From Leeds is on honeymoon, before anyone thinks he has gone missing!)

It seems that the host ISP will block IP addresses if the are more than 75 simultaneous accessess because it is regarded as an attack on the server. I must have acces...

I have been testing the alternative server for the last week and whilst it seems more stable (this is hard to judge though without generating this site's usual traffic), but there is no speed difference. One possible reason for switching is as a preventative measure for possible future problems, bu...

Maybe this will solve my access problem? Are you not having problems elsewhere? I have noticed a lot of slowdowns on the net of late, forums, banking, ebay etc. I assume it just gets a bit clunky at certain times of the day and there is little The Optom can do. Actually the rest of the sites I norm...

That explains it then. I always thought people deliberately picked on me and now I know I was right. Brain the size of a planet......

I'm having enough problems just getting onto the site at the moment. For some reason just putting in www.theoptom.com doesn't work, nor do my bookmarks. I get the message "Internet Explorer cannot display the web page", and there seems to be a message saying something about a DNS error that appears ...

i can imagine the next time you have to discuss wet ARMD tx with a px, LFL hoists up a flag with a skull and cross bones on it, puts the fields machine patch on one eye, and gives a rousing rendition of a selection of sea shanties from the pirates of penzance, before discussing Avas 'tin! :lol: You...

Excuse me, but I'm half Irish and I resent the suggestion that the Irish are slow. It's my English half that's slow. :lol:
