Vorb Slow?

Not sure if it's just me... page loads can be anywhere between instant and 20 seconds. Usually on the high end. Been this way for a couple of days now.

Yes it is, We're working to improve things. The brutal reality is we have had to make cuts to hosting costs in order to pay the bills

Actually, I think I may have just fixed it.

At precisely 7am UTC on Mar 18th the CPU went to 100% and sat there.
We experienced a denial of service attack from Bing's webcrawler
I tried politely asking Bing to back off but it wouldn't listen, so, for now we're just rejecting their requests
Hopefully I'll be able to convince Bing not to be so rude and to focus it's crawling during the wee hours of the morning

I think Kev has done an outstanding job here. with nothing more than a sow's ear and some keyboard magic he has given us a silk purse of a website.

I think anyone, and everyone who enjoys vorb should Donate a few sheckles so we can buy him a crate of his favourite craft beer to enjoy for all his efforts.
