Anyone else seeing this in the last day or so? Both Safari and FF. Other sites okay.

Those are a blast from the past, are you running OS 9 too or something? smirk

I'm surprised IE and Netscape can even parse many newer sites. iCab is the most up to date, its last update release was about a year ago.

Zipping right on through as usual. Using FF & Verizon FIOS.

It's possible the internet except for FIOS customers in some parts of the country is being affected by the weather.

That's what I'm getting. Changed DNS servers and flushed DNS cache but that didn't seem to help.

If more are having the problem I'll move this to Feedback, didn't want to bother Neil if it was just my POS setup.

Humm, I wonder.

I thought it was just me - than I ran across someone here who said that they too, reboot their modem daily. I have RR Turbo, the same with that other person.

In fact just yesterday I rebooted the modem 3 times. It runs fine then all of a sudden it starts to crawl, really slow, no matter what web site I am on.

ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ...

Very slow on Safar, Camino, Opera, and Sea Monkey.

Makes me love multiple tab browsing - I can do other things while waiting.

Yeah -- there was a problem, apparently, with our main site provider's CDN provider. This should be resolved now.

Cool.. thanks. I wish I could verify but I am at work now and the connection is slow here anyways...

Re: Forums loading slow? - 04/22/11 09:28 AM

Yeah.. it's a bit harder to gauge here at the workplace.. but I'm thinking it's still slow too.

Re: Forums loading slow? - 04/22/11 12:59 PM

4/22 15:55 EDT

The top buttons;

AppleCentral Network: Tech Support|Open Source|Apple News|Register Domains|SSL Certificates|iPod Deals|Mac Deals|Mac Book Shelf

...and the logo load right away, the rest takes at least 10-15 seconds.

On the Mactech and MacNews websites the same, top buttons and logo load right away.

The whole MacForge site comes up almost right away, it's fine.

Put everything on the same servers as the top buttons and logo and call it a day. smirk

Re: Forums loading slow? - 04/22/11 09:06 PM

For the record, everything cannot go on the same server -- that's why it's this way.

Re: Forums loading slow? - 05/19/11 05:13 PM

I'm still getting occasional hangs here in the forums in last week or so. It's not happening any other place I go.

Edit - The top bar and the logo load, the rest doesn't. When it does load, it loads fine though, very snappy.

Re: Forums loading slow? - 05/19/11 06:25 PM

Yeah, there is a "hang" there for sure
