    G'day folks,

    I reckon it's NOT me - I have 2 different ISP's and both exhibit the same symptom. Today (12 Mar 2006) the forum seems to take TEN times longer than usual to load/refresh.

    Any ideas? Sim? Anything going on at the back end?

    Regards,

    I've noticed too that it's been unusually slow...

    Maybe a sunday morning effect :D

    Mine has been slow for the last few days, but today just has to take the cake. It feels like it did when I had dial up a few years ago.

    Yep, There was a DoS attack on one of the servers shooting up the bandwidth utilisation this morning. The network engineer put a cap on the traffic at the moment, but I have asked them to lift the cap now. Thanks.

    For the record.. the collective noun for a gathering of turtles is either a bale, a dule or a nest :) Wikipedia Link.

    Say wha.. ??

    Thanks Dunc,
    But if I'd said any of the those, there'd be a collective "Huh?" from several people (including me :D )
    I wonder if that would then create a "confusion of Huh's" - (collectively speaking),

    But it could've been worse (based on other collective nouns):-
    A parliament of turtles
    A pride of turtles
    A murder of turtles

    I would've thought that a "yawn of turtles" would be far more appropriate ;)

    Sheesh, I hope they don't pay the people who invent these collective nouns too much - they don't deserve it :p

    Regards,

    about the only collective noun not appropriate to parliament would be "a murder of parliament", too much of a good thing, reincarnate Guy Fawkes
