As you may have noticed, is the forum pretty slow.
We have more and more people and search engines visiting us and thats a good thing.
All improvements and extra security features are demanding also very much of my current hardware.

This weekend i will install a new dell server 1950 which must solve all the performance issues. (raid1, 2 dual core intel processors = 4 processors in totall, sas discs etc etc)

This will mean that the forum will not be available sometimes, in this weekend.
The automated messages are not working at this moment as well.

Hopefully after this weekend, ionizationx will be ready for the next 4 years!

best regards
Steve

@Steve:

I was just wondering if you might consider letting us start a new trend here on your forum.  I thought that we might use the entire month of May to have a donation drive for ionizationX ending on June 6th.  The idea is to select one day out of the year as a day to donate to this forum and June 5th is a world wide observed day called World Environmental Day.  This seems to be a fitting day as your forum advocates responsibility concerning the environment.

If we used the month of May to spread the word, then people could have time to set aside a donation by June 5th.  We all have said nice things about your forum but it would be fitting for us to put our money where our mouths are. 

Just a thought,
mina

Google noticed abuse of their ads on this website and closed my account.
I am trying to get it open again, but i think it will not change anything.

I am back on donations again.
Please feel free to donate some money as appriciation for this forum.
The link is on the top right on the homepage...

I have seen the same when i run my macbook with google chrome browser.
As soon as i run on safari or on windows with explorer the problem is not there.
So, i think that the chrome browser automatically goes to that proxy/cache place to shop for pages.
Please another browser and let me know if the issue is gone.

Maybe you will notice or not, but the forum has moved from location onto a hugh datacentre.
Uploads, downloads, reaction time etc must have been improved mucho now.
