Well I am in Arizona and have a Hi Speed connection with adelphia cable 1.5 to 3.0 mbs and for the past few days the forum has taken a long time to come up longer than normal for my connection. It may be adelphia although all of the other sites that I visit seem to be OK. will do a little more checking to see..Mel :w00t:

I was having some slowing issues about a week ago. Things seem to have picked up lately though.That's just on this site, I might add...

You know he's on the level.

It seems to be faster this morning. I am begining to think maybe a resource or memory leak, But then all sites should be affected. I don't know maybe the SFF server was over loaded although there were only a few people in ATL while I was on..Mel :w00t:

You're right Mel, sometimes it just seems to hang as if it where taking a cup of coffee, and then all of a sudden it's there. Yesterday night it was ok, yesterday during the day ... well, not so great, and now tonight : well something in between, but managable. But I'm located overseas (dsl connection) and maybe the servers are busy. It happened during last month now and then.

I am having similar problems. I have 1500 ADSL and it is taking over a minute to bring up the opening page. This has happened several times recently.

No slow downs here, but then being on dialup, all sites are kinda slow for me.  :hysterical: We will keep an eye on this.Thanks for the heads up from those who have experienced this problem, and also for the confirmations that some are not experiencing this as well.I am not sure why there would be a difference between those who are experiencing the usual, and those who are experiencing intermittent problems.But we will keep an eye on it.I will see if I can optimize the database and see if that helps.

It seems to be working better now Fran. However it seemed to be going in spurts one minute working fine and the next very slow. so far this evening here in Arizona USA it is working fine. But earlier it was slow will keep you posted. ThanksMel :devil:

My first ever problem here. 1:03pm EST and in two sections when I click on a thread, I'm getting a blank white page. I opened a blank tab and went elsewhere to be sure it wasn't on my end. Other pages elsewhere load fine.Short-lived. In 3 minutes, it was back to its normal zippy self.

Slow at present 7pm ET; earlier pages refused to load at all. I'm on a fast cable connection so I'm sure anyone on dialup will time out.

I have to agree it has been very very slow for the past 2 days here in Arizona. I checked my Hi speed link and I have a 2.7 Mega Bit speed and the bandwidth never goes below 1.5 Mb. I checked with my other computers and get the same thing. So it is the forum.Mel :drooling: PS maybe it is all of the traffic so many are trying to switch to Linux in view of the WMF security bobbel.. :wacko:

The Forum seemed to be having problems all day. It was down for at least two hours.

Anyone notice a problem with their own avatar but nobody else's? In my case, my avatar has somehow migrated to the blue block below each member's post in each thread. It sits directly to the left of the delete button.

Have not had that problem yet, But I have to agree with Gary as the forum has been slow at all different times day and night for several weeks now. I did discover that when there are more than one user in the same thread it seems to freeze and page redraws take forever. The other day Bruno Myself and another person were all trying to write messages in the same thread and I had to kill the browser so that I could get out of the forum. There is something definatley wrong with the forum as I don't have this problem in the dozen or so other forums that I belong to.Mel ;)

It seems to be fine again. May have been a cache problem.
