Were still looking at it - it seems as though the database strangled itself temporarily and this caused pages to time out. Its self-repairing in that when the number of users trying to access it drops, its fine. However then everyone logs back in and it throttles itself again.
There are currently 39 people browsing the site and all looking good; Im monitoring the Boards and the logfiles to make sure its all working well.
No, it wont make any difference, youre quite welcome to leave the page open - the problem only seems to occur when a number of people try to search/post/view a thread at exactly the same moment, which forms a queue - when its very busy, requests at the bottom of the queue "time out".
Because it all slows down, this causes people to re-click a link or button, which makes the queue longer.... which then makes it lock up occasionally
