    Slow page loading times

    Just a quick heads up for you Sal - the page loading times this side of the pond have become exceedingly slow. Seems to have been the case since around Saturday I think, but things were ripping along quite happily last week.

    Anyone else got same issue?

    Re: Slow page loading times

    It seems to be working fine here, Steve. Is it just the Xchange that's doing this? Have you tried releasing/renewing your IP addy? Have you tried disabling/enabling your connection?

    Re: Slow page loading times

    Def a problem in terms of traffic load balance methinks...not sure how many servers are dedicated to handling connections geographically, but I'd say the server I'm connecting to from my location is def under some stress.

    On average it takes the page 15 seconds for data to be displayed, irrespective of how big or small the thread may be - basically the page is just blank for the 15 seconds, which is always a sign of poor server performance.

    This site has been consistantly poor now for several days - def not my local connection

    Re: Slow page loading times

    I have this issue every so often if I use Internet Exploder. Try this www.myproxybrowser.com and go in that way. See if the pages load quicker. If they do, that will work well for you until this resolves.

    I know you are connecting from eleven planets away and that doesn't help for sure. This might be something you can use when the connection is driving you nanners.

    Re: Slow page loading times

    Being on the other side of the pond, it is quite possible your "route" to the Xchange server is a bit longer.
    There are three ways a persons computer connects to the site, A: through a series of servers that reroute traffic or via Satellite, or a combination of both.

    In example it could go something like this:
    Client (Your PC) -----> Server A (Seattle) -----> Server B (Denver) -----> Server C (Chicago) -----> Server D (Atlanta) -----> 80sxchange Server (And back...although not always same route)

    The above would be an example for Morningmyst, Jazzy, Chooch, or myself. Now, let's go from Switzerland to the Xchange server (Two routes):

    Client (Chasey's PC) -----> Server A (Russia) -----> Server B (India) -----> Server C (China) -----> Server D (Alaska) -----> Server E (Seattle) -----> Server F (Denver) -----> Server G (Chicago) -----> Server H (Atlanta) -----> 80sxchange Server (And back...although not always same route)

    Client (Chasey's PC) -----> Server A (UK) ----->Satellite -----> Server B (Atlanta) -----> 80sxchange Server

    I Know it's not fancy and all, but the point is, whatever route the data is going, somewhere along the way is congestion....hence the slowdown. May not be your problem but I'm gonna say it's a high probability.

    You are absolutely right Dio.

    Intelligence as well as beauty...is there anything this lady can't do?

    Worked a treat Dawn, and serves to confirm that there is a problem somewhere along the route I am using. Would be interesting to see if Blitzkid is having the same problems, she's only over the border in Austria.

    For you? I think I could do almost ANYTHING for you

    Yeah, that's a great proxy, it's just a pain in the bum to keep using over time, but I have done it on a few occasions until issues resolve. It at least will keep you something closer to sane until then
