I pressume so but will check.
Well I am still seeing lots of the high traffic/busy page but when pages do load they load normally.
Weird...Sorry but you are not permitted to use the search system.
I'd guess that the search URL was the vector the DDoS'ers from China were using to attack the forum. Looks like we have to work through each subforum in turn until Monday when the RPF folks and Mythic Beasts (their ISP) can introduce a permanent resolution. [My resolution would be to block every IP address block for the whole of China, but that's not possible with a worldwide audience.]

Sorry but you are not permitted to use the search system.
As jamesh has stated several times some functions have been turned off while they sort out the problems resulting from the attack on the site, the most noticeable is the search function, it has be disabled for now, so no searches of any kind are possible right now.
Of course you can see new posts. The normal indicators are still shown when you're on the normal forum pages.

It's still almost completely dying at times, like yesterday afternoon / evening (and IIRC even early this morning)
It's likely to be an hour later than that since we've just gone back.
