This might be a temporary hitch, but I had to re-log on this morning and now that I have I don't see the Gallery photographs, which appear after the Leaderboard. I did previously.
However, I have a friend who has never seen the Gallery photographs on his page, even on the same computer, when I did. Different log-ons, different results. Now, I also don't see them. Is there a reason, or something I need to click to see them?

Correct. This is by design. Public tags are anyones, not just yours so it was not considered correct to close someone elses tags on your cache.

That's when it happened for me too. There last night. Turned off computer. Needed to re-log on this morning and then no gallery.

The gallery generator is running out of memory. Not quite sure why yet. I suspect that due to all of thew new images from the Summer Scavenger Series, we're exhausting the memory on creating a random selection. As this is not a problem, per se, please leave this with me to get to as my time permits. Hopefully in the next couple of days.

Today I seem to be getting logged out between pages. I was on the home page, and logged in. Clicked on the link to go to the My Cacher page, and got a message that I had to log in to view this page. Logged in again, then selected an option. Again got told I had to log in to view the page.

Been happening for quite some time so thought it time to ask.

If I log into the site during the day it's nice and responsive. If I log in around 9-10pm as I tend to do most of the time, it's extremely slow and takes ages.

I'm based in Perth so that would make it midnight - 1am EST.

So as Julius Sumner Miller once said, "Why is it so?"

Database backups


Won't be an issue after Saturday when the new server is installed
