You may have noticed brief time-outs on the forum, from time to time. This is actually intentional, and a measure to prevent the web server undergoing heavy loads to the extent that it hangs the server. We have yet to determine the cause of said loads, but the preventative measure is to temporarily shut down apache when the load appears to spike.
Normal service is always resumed in approximately 2 minutes.
Apologies for any inconvenience this causes.
