    In this area (Somerset UK) ETO was unusable (very slow) from 5:30amGMT to 7amGMT and was not accessible from 7am GMT to 1pm GMT on Saturday 2016_12_10.

    Is there any reason for this?

    hi spec,
    Same here.
    If Admin are not careful, ETO will go into terminal decline.

    Is there a reason that this happening.?

    You may recall, I have queried about the time it takes to get onto Chat.

    Eric

    I think part of the problem is all the hoops ETO jumps through (unnecessarily in my view) when you click on a forum topic ..... numerous ad-sites, social media, ...... If any one of them has a delayed response then ETO just has to wait.

    I suspect that the problem is due to site maintenance: back ups, etc.

    If that is the case it would be handy to know in advance when the maintenance period is. At work, our system was down from 2am to 4am and we could legislate for that if we were working at night.

    Just an update, in the last week I have noticed a big improvement in ETO availability. Yes, it does slow down on occasions, especially when uploading files, but not to an unworkable rate.

    Update: at 6am GMT today (2016_12_31) ETO completely froze for 10 minutes.:arghh:

    Right now at 09.15 UK time, experienced a slow loading. And today is Saturday.

    EDIT to add

    It took around 13 minutes for this post to be actually visible as posted.

    Same here, a slow period around 09:00.
    10;36, and all is back to normal.

    I guess that it is safe to assume that around 08:00 - 09:00 GMT on Saturday, there is some weekly maintenance on the server or whatever.
