why do i keep getting this message?
« on: 30 March 2005, 15:21 »
as above really, is it my computer or the sites server thats making it so sloooooooow?
thae page keeps giving me this message when i try to move around the site:

Connection Problems
Sorry, SMF was unable to connect to the database. This may be caused by the server being busy. Please try again later.

is this something to do with my computer?

cheers

the forum performance has been a bit bad the last couple of days but it is also the busiest it ever has been. the total online, new posts etc are all at record figures for March. the domain golfgtiforum.co.uk will have generated over a million page views in a month for the first time ever  :shocked:
