    For the past couple of weeks it seems that your site has been (and still is) responding very slowly. Painfully so at times.

    The site/server has been under attack for about 2 weeks.....

    With 300- 500 on the website + plus trying to hold off the attacks the server was overloading.

    Carrying out detailed logs and monitoring the attacks also put strain on the server and it went down a few times.

    We have done some tweaks to the server, so you should notice a difference in speed now.

    Being a database driven site uses a lot of server resources, we are hoping people who use the site, will support the site sponsors - Crucial Ram - which will allow us to upgrade the server.

    My website hosts were a great help and have provided excellent service.
