Forum will be down for maintenance on Thursday, August 13, 2020 from 7:30AM to 3PM PST.

DualSportBC are moving to a new hosting provider (Canadian!) as we have seen slow performance and quite few problems with loading posts that have many images. This should help to resolve this issue.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

Seems faster but a bit hard to tell.
That's what we are hoping for, also that it serves all the content, i.e. old hosting provider had their servers so overloaded that topics with lots of pics wouldn't load quite a few.

Old Hosting company:

+28 errors - meaning ~28 pics didn't load

New hosting company:

all pics loaded, no errors. almost the same load time but, 2x information 32MB vs 64MB.

Let's cross fingers and hope it stays that way and current hosting provider doesn't overload our new home (server) with additional clients.

Most noticeably zipper! Looks like we're now using Cloudflare, let the terrabits flow!
Glad to hear that!

Cloudflare has been in use since mid-May for the Forum. It was (is) helping a bit, ~10% of traffic is cached, but remaining 90% of traffic were still served by slow (overloaded) back-end that would fail to send information (pictures) over to clients.
