Today, its not locking up at all and it so happens that your site is also fast today. Last night when i was having trouble, even trying to post on here was really slow and was having problems with the lockups with fanaleds. You may not want to dismiss my theory to quickly. Great to know your on the case eitherway.
We won't dismiss anything indeed. It really seems to fluctuate a little in performance on the website end, but we also have tens of thousands of concurrent users (also from just visiting) more than normal, and since we don't earn anything webhosting can't just be scaled up unfortunately.
Sounds good. Perhaps in the mean time, maybe disable checking for updates or just check one time at first launch of the day. Seems like that would be a very happy medium....no need to check every few minutes.
This has been happening before the "Thrustmaster" update right? It has been happening for a while and gets worse than can go away for days.... just it doesn't go away for days anymore... Last night was very promising only to be disjointed this morning with hangs... When it works these days, boy it is a thing of beautify. BTW, I actually rely on it when I'm at the top of my game... now I have to look over at my backup SLI but I must take my eye off the track. I'm trying to keep faith alive that you will solve this... IS THIS a NORTH AMERICA only thing?
