    Not because of the Troll but because it is causing server CPU spikes. So had to remove it for the time being.

    Will be back after the intense server spike.

    Improvement question was about the speed. Not about removing the shoutbox which will be back on Monday.

    Yeah going to be putting it back in the next couple of hours. I think there is an update I am going to load up and then tweak some of the settings to hopefully prevent that when it happens again next year. :)

    Wow, I'm oblivious! The page loaded earlier today, and I couldn't figure out what was different.

    Glad I'm not only that unobservant when it comes to subtle changes my wife makes, you know, things like getting a haircut or buying a new car...

    Well now that I'm in the Packer forum, looking at threads,.I finally found this!!
    I wondered what happened, but I was sooo busy with SB party preps, I missed the warning.

    *I did do a search for "shout box" and nothing came up. weird. (That was the SB eve though)
