Posted:did Seven chew on the HOP wires again?

I was always scared with my mother's obsession with the good scissors. It made me wonder if there were evil scissors lurking in the house somewhere.

Posted:I thought it was just me!!!

You would think Seven would be busy chasing the mouse rather than chewing on the cables.


It was a day for screaming at inanimate objects.

What this calls for is a special mix of psychology and extreme violence...

Posted:HoP slow as hell
^^^^^i posted some comments there!


it takes longer than dial up to load a page here.
anyway i have had this thread open for a few weeks just to see if i was alone.

now at last some one has posted here about it too.

malcolm i dont know what your host is doing since you changed servers but its a pain in the ass, i dont have the time to wait the 5 mins to actually get a page to load.

I am glad i am not alone, maybe this problem may atlast get sorted.

Posted:Grrr...mine is still being REALLY slow, and not letting me into loads of places.
BUT, on the pluss side, it means i can put the finishing touches to my staff while i'm waiting for pages to load! Everyones a winner!
--------------------------------------------------
It used to seem to me that my life ran on too fast, and i had to take it slowly just to make the good parts last. But when you're born to run its so hard to just slow down.

If HoP totally crashed I can't imagine how productive I'd be.

I asked daddy to reboot the server.
He said there seems to be a bandwidth issue out of NZ. He is sure it wil get fixed, and he will also monitor it closely.

Posted:Seems there is slow bandwidth leaving New Zealand.
Hopefully only temporary glitch in that department.
Other slowness caused by the last few bits of cgi script on the site doing the discussion board.
I am just about finished with transfering the whole discussion board over to 100% PHP and MySQL
I am trying my best to make the tranfer as smooth as possible. Wish me luck

Posted:its fine for us now...then again...we do have like...3 or so fibre optic connections to the internet <\huffs out chest proudly>

but it was rather tedious for us yesterday.

I suggest you should move home of poi (both the house, and the shop) to england...in fact canterbury just so i could say hello and pop round for tea and scones on the veranda.

It's all rather lovely down here.
