Apologies to people who have been suffering from poor site performance this afternoon, which may have resulted in slow connections, or error messages due to load on the database server.

This was caused by a badly configured cache server, cacher2.ericsson.net, which was making around 30 simultaneous connections to the site, badly affecting loading.

I have blocked access via that cache server ; this may affect anyone who uses that system for their net access. That's tough - we can't upgrade all the time just to cope with other people's poorly configured systems.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Nigel.
