    Default VH Links slow as shit for me

    For a few weeks now this place has been ridiculously slow for me. Like I hit a button and it takes 10-20 seconds for the next page to load, assuming I don't get a can't find it page. I just thought it was my computer as I had to download a new IM program from our parent company (internal only, not external), but I just realized that other web sites are running fine. It's agonizing, even to the extent I've stopped checking the site as often because it just takes too long and is too frustrating. I've cleared out my temp files, cookies, history, but no luck.

    Any thoughts?

    I feel for ya dude it's frustrating when web pages/sites render slowly. But, for me at least VHLinks is working just fine.

    It depends upon the time of day for me. For instance, anytime between 11AM(EST) and 3PM(EST) I can forget about loading KSCUM show, as the wait time bogs to hours.

    Of course this is probably due to the iffy resources available at my end. Yet again, when the place starts hopping with several mouth-breathers debating the merits of one band member over another, the pages lag also.

    I dunno. Simply an observation, as yours is. It's unlikely much can be done on Brett's end.

    That used to happen to me fairly often, very frustrating. It's funny that you say that though, because yesterday I was sitting on the links thinking the site had never been running better for me.

    This is just crazy frustrating. It's not the site, it's got to be something in the way my computer is interacting with the site. And it's only this site. I'll click on the go button, and it'll just sit there processing for like 10 seconds, then it'll change to a blue screen, and in another 5-10 seconds it'll load the page. Bizarre. And incredibly annoying.

    Check for viruses and those freaking spyware programs, they wreak havoc with your web browser if you have them.

    Because the site is fine, flying along.

    Yeah, I'll see what I can find. Unfortunately, I run into my own ignorance, if it doesn't come up on Ad-Aware, I ain't finding it. And I've done those sweeps since this site's been going bad.

    I have no idea - like I said, this is the ONLY site that's doing this - ESPN, SI, LYCOS, Monster - all working fine, it's just this damn site. Like I said, I know it's not this site, but it's got to be something about how the site works that's triggering some BS within my computer. I was just hoping there was something inherent in these sites that aren't in others that somebody knew something about. As if THAT sentence just made sense.

    The site is running fine for me. Most likely a spyware infestation.

    Run a traceroute and see where it hangs.

    To do it on a Windows machine....

    >Start>Run> tracert vhlinks.com

    Hit enter...


    Give that a go and see where it hangs up.
