I get the timeout errors too. I just hit back in the browser, which takes me back to my typed out post, and hit post again. Annoying, but not catastrophic.

I've been doing that too, but then the attachments disappear and have to be reloaded.  If you're only posting one or maybe two pics then it will upload, but attaching three or four it doesn't seem to like it and 'times out' again.

Ah, I see. I haven't tried uploading photos to the forum, I've been using photobucket instead.

kit': All but a handful of my posts have timed-out too. When they do, I've just been hitting the Back button on my browser. In almost every case, the message was still there including attached images. Usually it was 'second time lucky' for posting.

Yes my time-outs stopped too. If Jon keeps this up, I'm going to start calling him the Wizard.

I'd love to take credit, but all I did was let it alone to run the scheduled maintenance tasks.
I hadn't yet gotten up the nerve to dive into the top level coding.

Perhaps, it just needed time to sort itself out following the server switch.

Yep. Seems to be sorted. I say we assign Jon the credit anyway!  :)
