Hmm, has anyone else experienced slow-loading pages and error messages recently?
It happens sporadically; first I had the laboured loading times, then a bizarre DNS change error message after more slow loading pages a few days later, and today, this:
SQL ERROR [ mysql4 ]
Too many connections 
An sql error occurred while fetching this page. Please contact an administrator if this problem persists.
This occurred twice in the space of a few minutes, amidst really laboured loading times.
Also, whilst browsing some older pages of the Computer Assistance thread in Foreign Kingdoms, my Avast security suite sprang into life and thought there were 'malicious items' on the page? They seemed to be originating from either off-site avatars or image links. Odd.
