    I made couple of changes to the forum code couple of minutes ago that should improve the response times of the forums in certain cases:

    -you're logged in and are browsing a thread you've subscribed to

    -replying to an existing thread should "process" the message much, much faster now

    -when you click a thread link in an email sent to you by our notification system, the thread should appear bit faster to your screen

    ...these changes wont affect the speed the forums function under heavy load, just make some usability improvements by reducing the processing time shown to users.

    Sounds good.
    However am still missing many email notifications from today, hopefully they will filter thru at some point.

    You wont be getting them. What happened was that the emails weren't generated at all, thus there are no notifications for the ~24h period that could be sent out.

    Even dial-up is faster now, although you have to be a snail to notice anything faster on dial-up. *curses out loud*
    Good work boss :)
