yep its like watchin paint dry................

Very busy. It seems every time we upgrade and think we're fine we last a week or two and then we're getting hammered again! It's nice to be popular I guess but yikes it's getting harder to keep up...

ummmmm perhaps u need doormen LOL

Use all that quidco profit that you make and buy a new server :-D

Ummm quidco doesn't have anything to do with Hotukdeals.

We actually have three servers on for the site...

i only have the one server thats the misses lol

The forum isn't used to 2000 people regulary using it, lots of double posts, lag.

Still the site makes me reminisce of 14.4k dialup days.

More hardware coming on tonight guys, hopefully it will pull us through Christmas.... So we should only have to suffer through today (again).

I imagine the forum will break 3000 by xmas, 4000 if you're really unlucky

I've no doubt UK will be breaking xmas net order records again this year and considering the lack luster sales at the end of november, more people than ever are looking for good bargains.

MSE was having problems earlier today too

I think we may possibly break 3000 but I doubt 4000. Our 2877 record was set when they mentioned the site on the radio/news so it's not a normal climb. If it keeps going though we'll have to ask people to bring a server along with them when they sign up

Sounds more like a deal request that to me :-D.
It's good how the place has grown so much, i remember being a lurker here for ages, and saw it was a, in the main, friendly place so joined in too :-D
Guess folks are just keen to nab a bargain this time of year. (Do i get a prize for stating the bleeding obvious?)

Should we stop promoting the site then?

Also, anyone know 1) what happened to the £50 hunt, comp and 2) who won the last two? I only saw who won the camera hunt?

The hunts are still in the Hot Deals forum, the winners have been posted in each one.

Well I have been scouring the pages on ]http//ww…php
to absolutely no avail.

Could you post a direct link to it for me, please?

hotukdeals.com/?me…est

If you're going by the front page you'll need to change the filter to filter All as the old ones are Expired.

Nah I'm not complaining! I just feel bad whenever it gets really slow, I like it when it's snappy and when we're all hunting for deals it needs to be!

wooohooo.....lightning :-D

I never seen the forum so fast... and 2007 users

Long may it last Admin has a team of hamsters warming up in case the servers need more power... the chain of hamster wheels is at the ready :lol:

gerbils emma gerbils.

[SIZE=2]Ooops. They're similar I suppose. Wouldn't guinea pigs work better?[/SIZE]

The guinea pigs are too fat to fit in the wheels, and the exposed wiring tends to cause... issues.

LMAO @ the admins' antics! :lol:

LOL
