    I'm happy I caught you guys. I'm just surprised it wasn't noticed by someone from the site.



    Honestly, I didn't a single issue trying to browse/post/login/etc.



    I'd definitely have started the ball rolling on sourcing the problem earlier, if I had.

    On the plus side, we also implemented some other new optimizations (gzip, memcached) that should help speed of everything.



    Thanks for your responses and help.



    Server response time is still very slow.



    It often takes 15-20 seconds for a new thread to load and show.

    I noticed this repeatedely today.

    I got the message again today about 5 hours ago and it lasted about 10-15 minutes. Lost a post because of it, fortunately a short one.



    I typed the post, hit preview, I got server busy. If I hit back, that post is gone (I did today but usually I leave it) as I get another server busy message. However, if I wait until the server is free by refreshing another thread, hitting back gives me my post again.



    So, if you post and get this message, just leave the thread, open a new tab and check to see if AI is freed up, then hit back on your thread post.

    That's what I was doing, except that I don't like tabs, so I open a window instead.



    But, sometimes the post actually would go through, even though the post is still there in the posting window. When that happens, and you attempt the post again, you find that it was already posted.
