The heaviest traffic since the General Election hits our servers
A big apology to all PB.C’s users for the problems getting through to the site from mid-afternoon today. In the immediate aftermath of Tony Blair’s speech and the Tory vote on the leadership rules trafffic soared dramatically on normal weekday levels and the servers could not cope.
Today saw the site at its busiest since May 5th as an estimated 20,000 of you tried to access the discussion forums all in a very short time. The situation was not helped by the fact that my son Robert, who manages the technical side, was on a plane to Mexico.
