I know with the tour, MACCA-Central is being swamped by visitors litterally dozens every seconds. Because the site is dynamic there is a lot of database accessing going on for forums, news, photos etc. This site is extensive, not just MACCA-Forums, so at any give minutes there are 60 to 150 people accessing various sections of MACCA-Central. The success of this site is limited by the zero operation budget it has.
I have no idea of the computer at your end or your internet connection, with a modem, this may get a little overwhelming when the site is being accessed at it's peak.
I have taken a great many measures and expense to keep this site running as efficient as possible. Unforutunely even though I ask for donations, I don't get any. So, I'm stuck with the busiest McCartney fan site on the web and all the expenses to deal with myself. There have been a few people who contributed a little over the years but it is obvious I don't have the resources of Paul McCartney so we must be happy with what we have.
It may seem a lame excuse but them are the facts. As you already know I am always installing new features so to increase the quality and efficiency of this site. Your feedback is very valuable to me so please don't let me discourage you from commenting. I need to hear where there is problems so I can evaluate the problem and find a solution expidiciously.
