Just a suggestion but would it not be a good idea to cease allowing members to be logged in "forever".  I would imagine there is some context memory taken up by every online but not actually active user.  If this memory is backed up on disc say in a database  then that too grows and grows in time.  I don't know whether this is the problem but I guess it's testament to the popularity of the site and of The Albion.

It isn't that much of a hardship to log back in.

I work in a company which amongst other things hosts services for other companies. Two things spring to my mind...if we had one of the paying services off-line for such a long period we would be linched or in deep trouble anyway. Also, in some cases we would have to pay compensation to the affected companies. I don't know if this is the case for us, but any potential compensation could help finance a switch of hosts maybe. As someone else has said I'd be happy to contribute to any switch of provider costs.

Stress this is in no way a complaint towards the mods.

Oldbury told me that part of the issue was the sites owner was abroad and thus caused delays in getting things sorted.

Not having a pop Mods. But it would be nice if one of you could update .com's twitter page with outage news when the site goes down.
It doesn't matter how many resources you have.
If you don't know how to use them, they will never be enough.

I don’t know if this will help members, but if you log on to the site link below, it tells you when a web site is down.

By default, if it says the sites up, then you can log on

Prediction, we are heading for a hung parliament

Apologies for the issues.

The issues was again at the end of the hosting company. The timing was not good as Glenn was just arriving in the US at the time and the hosting company are not the easiest to get through to given you have to get a ticket and wait for them so once it wqas reported it was a case of waiting for them to get back to us etc.

I apologise for not keeping people update on Twitter and in case of any future issues please check our Twitter page @westbromcom where I will update.

Hi people, great layout. However I only seem to be able to get it on data. When I’m on WiFi it just says can’t connect to server. This started yesterday morning, but the new screen on data only appeared about 2pm today, before then I was only getting the old screen with a few messages. Any ideas please?
