Seems ok at the moment but it is quite slow sometimes.

True it's not too bad today - although a little ... 'clunky'. Last night it was taking an age (minutes rather than seconds) to load a page of forum threads. My impression since I joined is that it's one of the slowest forums I've subscribed to - often just too slow to bother with. Sorry if that sounds ... err ... ungrateful - really I was just wondering if others find it slow and if they do, if something could be done.

I am also finding the site quite painfull the last few weeks.

A quick look seems that the site is hosted by http://mediatemple.net, so a US firm but I can not confirm where the server is located.

At time of posting both mediatemple and mycncuk have a ping of around 200ms, where a ping from the bbc is around 30ms.
