Genes Advisor Report 11 Nov 2011 16:56

We are really sorry about the performance of the site again. We are as frustrated as you and we are very sorry that it keeps happening. Phil (our lead developer) and the rest of his team are working really hard checking every single piece of code on the site to try and find out what the problem is. This is taking some time, as we're sure you can imagine, but we are trying our very best to resolve the problem and do hope to get to the bottom of it as soon as possible.
