    Can someone tell me what this CPU-quota is? I got thrown off the forum earlier with this message, while visiting in a for me perfectly normal way??
    (I use firefox, and so I have multiple tabs open... isn't that allowed or something perhaps?):cry:

    Perhaps better to explain this, so we can adjust our ways of visiting this forum? How many tabs are 'allowed' for instance? Would be nice to know if possible :)

    Happened to me a couple of times Kat. I think it's just a glitch because that's a server side message not intended for the user end. It's only really irritating if you're about to preview a post before submitting because you lose the content. I got caught like that today with a (roughly) 300 word reply - oh well, those pearls of wisdom will not now drop from my lips...

    Katink, I use Firefox too and I've never seen the CPU quota messsage. I've usually got at least half a dozen tabs open at one time.

    Sorry people, I should have posted here before....

    Basically the forum software is using up much more processor resources than are provided by the server account.

    To rectify this I am in the process of getting another server, but it does take some time.

    I will get it sorted and thanks for your patience.

    Bear in mind that the allocation of resources is worked out within a 60 second time period so if you get the problem just leave everything for a minute or two and then try again and it should be cleared up.

    I normally just check out something else when it happens to me (basically more e-cig info not located on this forum) and after I'm done reading that one page hop back here to digest more info

    The CPU usage and the logging-in issues are a joke. This has to be the worst forum software/hosting package on the entire www :(

    Honestly, it's no fun anymore!

    Ooops Joe, didn't mean to hassle you :oops:

    It just gets very frustrating at times.

    The reason for the problems is entirely down to the hosting. - As soon as I get that sorted there shouldn't be any more problems.

    Again, I am sorry but I need to spend a weekend sorting it and I just haven't had time yet.
