One thing - yesterday my system started to hang when a 'new' graphic intensive advertisment appears (albeit randomly ... I think? Or is it a new sponsor!?) on the top of any given Indiamike page. The add is from a cheap/discount airline booking company ixigo and queries you for flight information etc. When this ad appears it will either totally crash my system or suspend it's operation for about 3 minutes. Don't know if it is related to the DB problem .... but it is a problem!!
Hmmm... do you have an ad blocker on?
