I’ve noticed (and no doubt lots of others have as well) the pretty awful speed of TRIP in the last week or so. Just to say SORRY and that we are addressing the issues:

  • As a short-term measure we are quadrupling the memory in our servers. This should boost speeds considerably and hopefully this will be in by either the end of this week or the start of the next.
  • On a more medium term basis we are carrying out some sophisticated analysis of the site to identify where the bottlenecks are. We’re hoping that, once this has finished, we will be able to allocate resources at the problems. If we’re lucky the extra memory might sort everything out!

I use TRIP everyday so am acutely aware of the need for speed – we’ll get there….
