    Until the next "unscheduled interruption" in the foreseeable future..
    On Sillage:

    If someone can smell me at more than an arm's length away, I'm probably wearing too much of whatever I applied; if she can distinctly make out the top notes, then perhaps I left the house a bit too soon..

    On icebreaker:

    I tend to compliment people on their frags to make short talks rather than anything more meaningful.

    The site is running great so far this morning. It now seems faster than it has ever been. Thanks to Grant et al for addressing the problem.

    But we've had fixes in the past that were only effective temporarily. It has usually been a matter of time before the same problems cropped up again and again. I hope things are really sorted this time.

    So far so good this morning (Eastern Time, US), but I noticed I lost 15 posts. After this, my actual post count should be ....





    2906 (not 2891 as displayed on the left).


    Anyway, as long as BN is fast, I'm cool with that.

    I cannot reply to a thread in the Male Fragrance Discussion board. I type my reply in the Quick Reply box, and all I get is another page (the full Reply page) telling me that my reply must be over 3 characters (which it is). If I retype the reponse in the full Reply box the screen just goes blank.

    Also, although the site has performed quite well today in comparison with the past several days, with pages loading quickly overall, I do experience the occasional lag in loading.

    So we're still having some problems with the site. It ain't over yet.

    I'm trying to be patient, but I have 20 reviews to put in and a Blog, and It averages 5min. of wait time every click of a mouse button...ARG! I have been at it off and on all afternoon yesterday, and all morning today.

    Consider yourself lucky. In the last Website fiasco about a half year ago, DustB lost more than 2,000 posts in one night.

    So all the "sloooooow " and "what's with the website" threads have been merged ?
    Thought it was a bit better a few hours ago but guess I was wrong.
    It'd be quicker to drive round to every Basenoter's house and just tell them what I wanted to say.

    Yup, I remember last year some members lost thousands of posts. I'll lose some privileges if I'm down to below 1000. I think I'll cry if that ever happens to me. :-P

    My concern is for the hundreds of reviews and "fragrances tried/owned" data I have stored on the website. It is the only record I have of all the hundreds of frags tried/reviewed in the past several years...I guess I had better save them on my PC...

    This is how I feel too. It would be much easier to be patient if we had some info concerning all of the problems.

    Really slow tonight. Is the server struggling with large amounts of traffic? It was ok at 6am when it was quiet.
