to the days when hardly a week went by without a thread about the site being slow. It's a rare occurrence these days, and when it happens it tends to be localised, and is often related to traffic problems in specific areas on the internet.
The credit, of course, must go to the Online development team, the boys in the background, who spend their days working very hard to keep not only this site, but quite a few others within the IDG group, humming along smoothly.
They rarely get a mention, and I'm as much to blame as anyone else for that, so I thought it time to redress the balance a little. Here's to Dan, John, Adrian, Victor, and Bradley, without whom we would all be looking for somewhere else to argue about the government/copyright/things ain't what they used to be, etc., etc.
