The lounge is once again overloading the system. We'll have to move it to a new server, but this will take a while. I'll be out of the office for the next four weeks, so it will need to remain at its current location for the time being.

I've taken a complete backup of the data (over 70Mb's in compressed format!) and I've changed the expiry date to all forums to be two months. This will dramatically reduce the size of the database, and, hopefully, speed the lounge up a fair bit.

If everything goes to plan, I should be able to re-instate the search feature before I leave for overseas.

I'll restore all the data (which will be culled shortly) once we're at the new location.
