Were you guys down all weekend or what? I wasn't able to access until a few minutes ago. What happened?
We were up, but our DNS server has been flaking out a bit lately, so folks couldn't find us. Major systems upgrades—which will provide significant performance increases and greater redundancy on every level—are already in the works.
It might help performance (on many user-agents at the very least) if you paged the thread list on each board as well as within threads.
I used to visit daily, but the site seems to be grinding to an unfortunate halt. :(
Here's the scoop. Currently, on a forum page, we list (up to) the 200 most recently active threads. Archived threads are availabe through searching.
We are considering reducing the number (probably to 100), and may do so.
The speed problems are largely unrelated to the number of threads, however, and we are addressing some hardware and software improvements that should deliver great results by the end of the month.
