Quite a few of us are experiencing problems posting messages - server hangups, timeouts and the like, not to mention the image uploading issue which is driving some of our number to distraction. I don't know why this is happening and have asked the company that hosts the site to look into it. If it turns out that they can't fix it it may well be that we'll have to take the board down and remount it from scratch. Only about 90 MBthere doesn't seem to be anything wrong with the main site so hopefully that won't need reloading. I'll give notice if and when this is going to happen because it is likely to involve a 24 hr shutdown. It'll be a good opportunity to dig out that book you've been meaning to read, chat to the wife, phone a beloved ancestor or walk the dog.
