    I have a cable modem, and in fact my ISP has switched to an even faster system than before, but this site is incredibly slow. I'm talking, like, AOL-with-a-6300 Baud modem-slow.
    3-5 MINUTES to load a page, IF it loads at all.

    I get 'connection timed out' every 3rd try or so.

    I never had the white screen problem until AFTER the problem was located.

    Then there was my double post, separated by an hour. During that hour, I wasn't even online, and I only clicked the submit button once.

    Is this all from the new board version, or is the main server here bad, or what? It's starting to make the Army's server seem fast and reliable.

    Any ideas on this? Anyone else going through the same stuff?

    To me, VHForums has always had snail speed...I've always attributed that to the SSI's, the NewsFader, the heavy graphics, and of course the high traffic. But now that you've mentioned it, it does seem a lot slower than usual...

    I'd attribute it to the traffic. We had something like 268 people here at one point last night.

    Not that anything "newsworthy" went down concerning VH or anything... [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    I had similar problems when the story first broke, yesterday. Traffic ballooned and the board slowed a bit.

    Things are fine, now, though.

    Guys, please understand, we are on a shared server, I don't have someone footing the bill, or I'd go dedicated like Brad and Sarge have the luxury of.

    We were hit EXTREMELY hard yesterday, I dare say numbers not even the PD ever experienced. As things come down, we will be back at better speed.

    Well if we need to take up a collection for a dedicated server, count me in! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]
