Don't worry - the server didn't even feel it. And should be even better in a couple of weeks when the new server comes live...

coffeebaron: Thanks for your email Mauricio. Removed the feeds, but atleast the "new forum posts" should work now. Hope I didn't nearly crash Geekzone with my 36000 logins

This is not the first time - it happened before with someone else's IE8 beta 2. I might even prevent IE 8 from access our feeds to prevent this behaviour.

I've logeed this to Micosoft Connect, but they can't reproduce it (of course not, this is so random).

Are you behind a proxy? Transparent proxy? Is this your company LAN, or consumer broadband? Any other information to help find this problem? Feel free to PM me with answers.

I guess a lot of people won't be happy if IE8 comes out with this...

Just a standard Xnet Fusion connection, no proxies or anything like that. I could try adding one of the feeds again - perhaps it's a bug in the importing of the feeds from IE7. I could also try with and with out my auto login enabled.

Let me know if there is anything you want me to try:

My system:
Vista Ultimate 64 bit
IE8 Beta 2
Office 2007 Pro
Draytek Vigor 2700
Xnet Fusion with static IP

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.
Rural Broadband RBI installer for Ultimate Broadband and Full Flavour
