    Yeah, you are not notified what the problem was but I am. Too many DB connections, the DB server is struggling with TPD. Night is drawing in on the thread I am afraid. The executioner is donning his hood. The congregation will be asked to deliver the last rites...

    It must be a world record for the largest thread on a forum.

    There must be some other way. We're a bunch of IT 'experts' here for goodness sake - can't we think of a way to keep TPD and free the forum up a bit?

    Come on PHP gurus, don your thinking caps.

    A whip round for a few more GB of RAM might be enough to keep it going for a few hundred more posts... Will see how much this machine has in it and see what the cost would be for some more. If anyone has some optimisation tips then don't be shy.

    I can think of a way

    DELETE FROM threads WHERE thread_title = 'test please delete'

    Oh no - please don't.

    It's a bit like Terry Wogan, the Archers, or even John Peel (R.I.P.). You never listen or partake but are comforted by the fact that they will always be there.
