    I think it's the Hearthstone giveaway. EG are probably loving the traffic so who knows when they'll have had enough and announce the winners.

    It is just a digital card game.

    ... go to a pub and play blackjack or poker or something.

    Pubs suck around here, and the Casino gets enough money as it is from all the old people throwing away their life savings.
    I would've guessed the lag's caused by the giveaway, but has it been going on for two weeks already? Also, hi~ :)

    No the giveaway started last week and the the lag has only been prevalent on the day it started and today when the winners are due to be announced.

    Yeah why spend any time and money making the site stable, just get those sign ups!

    Ker-ching.

    It's not really "ker-ching", as we don't make any money when the sites are down.

    My understanding.

    Beta key give aways generate lots of traffic and the numbers of registered member shoot up. More traffic, more members more appealing to advertisers.

    Every big give away it's loading errors and a slow site. Just figured it would be better catered for after so many give aways.

    I've been having problems since yesterday, everything loaded as blank white pages, clearing out EG's cookies got forum and articles pages loading but article comments never load at all for me (using Safari).

    I had to clear EG's cookies again this morning because things weren't quite right.

    Never understood the phrase - running like a dog.

    dogs run pretty well, as animals go.

    And... I'm still having to clear EG's cookie to get pages to render, on the plus side the ads for all those crappy casual games are gone now.

    @OptimusPube I've had something similar twice now over the last couple of days, on iPhone, on home wifi. The error message indicated that the network was not available though, rather than the webpage specifically.

    Dunno.

    @MrTomFTW

    Well the cheap bastards should get more obnoxious in your face adverts to pay for better servers for the upcoming new consoles.

    Then I wouldn't have to put up with minor inconvenience.

    I always imagined it was in respect of horse racing. Don't know for sure, though.

    Anyone else having problems with pages having embedded YouTube videos? The 'What have you currently been listening to?' thread looks like a fucking abomination. From reading my Twitter feed earlier I know YouTube was down but wasn't sure if it effected other sites.

    Stuff overlapping and mid-aligned?
    I did spot that yes, thought I'd been working too much...
