Just to let you know that you may see a few changes to the site over the next couple of weeks. Due to our webhost informing us that HeliTorque has grown so big that it is basically killing the network resources we have been forced to turn a few things off. The last thing we want to happen is that we suddenly get shut down without any notice - what on earth would you do during your tea breaks then?!
I have thus had to turn off some of the blocks and resources on the site, and since I know most of you come here primarily to use the forums I am hopeful this won't cause you too much inconvenience in the short term.
Our ultimate goal is to re-develop the site using an engine that will not drain such massive server resources, but there is a lot of work to be done before that will be possible, so meanwhile please bear with us while we carry out some tests and get to the bottom of which part of the site is responsible. Maybe you could help me out and post your feedback to let me know if the site is running faster than before now I've shut a few things down, and if you are noticing any particular pages that are loading slowly.
