Apparently the database fix I put in wasn't a good long-term solution. It looks like the forum is getting hammered by bots right now and there's nothing that can really be done about that except maybe moving to a faster database server.

Yeah, I've noticed that sometimes when I submit a post, it takes a few. But the funny thing is, while it's trying to post, I'll go back to the thread and it is already posted, yet still sitting in un-posted in a different window. did I word that right? Does that make sense? Maybe it's a Firefox thing.

No, I'm experiencing that too. And sometimes the forum process dies and it gives an internal server error, even though the post was posted. This tells me that things are dying somewhere between the post being written to the database and it being read back out (so the forum knows where to forward you). I suppose I could look at phpBB code to figure out how they actually implement that (since it's tricky).
