I thought it's my connection from Eastern Europe.
Long pauses after ANY click, 50% end in blank page (dropped connection).
Posting a reply takes up to 5 attempts.
This started yesterday and got really worse today

My experience, too, and I'm in the middle of the US.
Still ongoing.
Something's not right.

It can be anything. From something with the database or overload on the server. As mentioned by Kai, he and Ben is working on it.

that's because you keep attachment files on the server. I think you should use something else. Some "outsource".
As we all know for traffic sake your situation is much worse - tons of tiny files, then 5 super large files. That's a very rough example, but it shows my point.

this has nothing todo with the attachments, they are not part of that statistic ;) Out total usage Forum incl. Attachments, Homepage and FTP is much higher but the server can handle that

I had to clear my browsing cache. It doesn't help. I know AIG had a problem. I waited until they fixed. I don't bother the post until now. I explained check your browser cache clear or check other sites are working. It means down or maintenance repair or downloading updates etc.  You have to be patient.  LOL

By the way juergenbaumbusch.de has exactly the same problems lately. Pages load after several attempts, lots of dropped downloads..

Same symptoms reported in other threads are back.    Page does not load, if able to get into the forums, clicking on a sub-forum may or may not work.

just right now, during "reply to a post" and "send personal message" - a hang, then "can't be done, contact administrator". In 5 minutes works fine
