Dear colleagues!

Last week it was a real catastrophy - ProZ.com was regularly hanging while opening.
But now it is no more catastrophical. IT DOESN'T OPEN AT ALL, or it needs a quarter till half an hour to open the home page.

Is it also The Crisis? Or something else?
Is there a remedy against it?

Extraordinarily slow in London too (Firefox user).

Other internet access fine.

Yes, yes, I'll submit a support ticket but that is not a public forum where other members can ascertain whether any problem they may have is individual and exclusive to them, or more widespread (i.e. a problem with the site/server, etc.).

EDIT - No need for support ticket. If you go to the support page, they appear to be aware of it.

NOTE for staff - it might be a good idea to put that notice on the home page. I realise it may detract from the hyper-professional image the site likes to project, but on the other hand, it would save members from fannying about rebooting their machines and wasting time wondering... wondering.... wondering..... will the page ever load.... have I got time to pop to the supermarket before my kudoz search returns any results......:-)

Taking about a minute to load a page. They must be aware of it and working on it.

Seems to be fixed now Feb 7, 2009

It was the same here in Brussels, but it seems to be working normally now.

Hello all,

Sorry for the inconvenience. As writeaway reports, this should be working normally now.

I had similar problems Feb 7, 2009


I must say that I had similar problems last week several times and again today. I had to try to open ProZ.com several times!

Other internet functions and web pages work regularly.
