You're not alone. It's doing my head in as well. All I can do is get Jason to have a word with the techies at Transworld. :( I'll let him know.

I got fed up with it and have bookmarked the IP mirror index address which at least connects you eventually without the CGI rubbish coming up - click on the link and then bookmarkit as TPforum wonky index or summat and use that when the 'proper' addy is having a strop :wink:

I've reported it to Transworld. I'll let you know when we get a response.

If using the IP address fixes the problem it looks like it might be a DNS issue.

I've had some feedback from Transworld.

Apparently the server that we live on here is running near to capacity. Transworld are in the process of sorting a replacement server but the time scale is likely to be a couple of months.

Short term there is very little that can be done - so please bear with us for the time being. Things should get better soon(ish).

Well you can't very well lean on :lol: the site host techies - they always have the power! :lol:

Seriously I've just had a similar prob with my own site and once you get transferred to a super-duper new server it'll all be worth it - some things just can't be hurried :)

Seems like it. Sometimes it's very slow loading a page and gets timed out and sometimes it just won't open at all. :?
