We're focusing on different ways of managing bots (like search engine spiders).

At the same time we've been making the server more efficient at dealing with high loads.

Re: I'm working on this site's sibling...

Is this still happening? JSON code is specific to FTU. It may be a consequence of a gateway timeout.

If it happens repeatedly at other times of the day please let me know, thanks.

Re: F Stop.............!!

You basically halve the number so f/4 is equivalent to f/8.

A very handy benefit is that you get greater brightness for the same DOF and so the benefit of faster shutter speed and/or lower ISO...
