Rockin' and Rollin' Mr. Goat.. Very fast.. I'm in heaven. -T.

Much better [;)]

Great improvement. Don't have to wait 5 seconds to get into a forum anymore. I think tonight will be a better gauge though, during peak time, but so far..so good!

Big improvement. Seems to be at least twice as fast.

Yep, much better here..

I would say Moderate to fast.. I am sure that any slowness is due to my PROvider. Ben

Slightly faster for me and my cable modem
Link Posted: 4/29/2002 7:22:04 AM EDT
MUCH better, Goaty! Keep up the good work!
Link Posted: 4/29/2002 7:23:49 AM EDT
The pages come up about the same speed (fast), but the load time of the pages seems to be even better. But it might be psychological... [whacko] Viper Out

Quite a bit faster, GB. Thanks!
Link Posted: 4/29/2002 7:26:54 AM EDT

Dial-up at home w/ Net-Zero, quicker than the excess slow you had, but still has "lag time" between going forward to something or back. Currently at work (7:30am-5pm EST) and on some sort of cable with Toyota/reynold-Reynolds, and it is slow, sometimes I think home is quicker, but have a number of terminals here at the dealership.

Before today I noticed the site always got REALLY slow during the early evening. Like maybe everyone had just got home from work and fired up the ole browser. I think that's when the acid test will occur.
Link Posted: 4/29/2002 9:06:29 AM EDT
Right now, it's slower then Christmas.
Link Posted: 4/29/2002 9:11:25 AM EDT
It's SMOKIN fast, but that could also be partially attributed to my system... [*] 2.0 Ghz P4[/*] [*] 1.5 Gigs SDRAM[/*] [*] Plugged directly into a 1.5mb ADSL router[/*]

Anti, You want a medal, or a chest to pin it on ??? [;D] The site is running pretty quick right now. This evening will be the big test: It's been crawling the past few months after sunset. Edited to add that at 5:45 PM, things are still zipping along nicely. The past few months, things were crawling about this time of day, even with wireless internet.

It fluctuates for me. Sometimes very fast, sometimes VERY slow.

The site is running very well. Thanks for your hard work, GoatBoy.

Up to par on the download/opening speed here. Cable modem works like it should, now. Scott

Doesn't appear much faster than before... Then again, this is probably getting to be the busy time. This doesn't feel like 2x the bandwidth. Then again 2x 56k isn't fast. lol. j/k.

This is my story also. 9-10pm will be another crucial time period, I usually have time to put 1k of ammo on stripper clips while waiting on a post to open then. [;)]

The speed is awesome! Keep it like this and I'm a happy shooter!

It's been moving slow as molasses for me all day.
Link Posted: 4/29/2002 4:01:15 PM EDT
To me, it is slower than usual. But, my download speeds have varied between 738 bytes to 7.8kbytes, in just the last hour or so. Whatever, thanks for all your good efforts.

Couldn't prove it's any faster by me. But then I'm using 56k dial up modem in a 30 year old house in a area with 50 year old phone lines so I'm probably not a good barometer for performance.

Seems a little better - I know you will get the kinks worked out. Still a hell of a lot better than the servers at the hospital where I work - I think they are made up of tinker-toys. Tyler

I dont find it to much faster if any. During the morning, it is very snappy (as it always was) Mid afternoon from work it is average speed... feels about the same.... And this evening from home, it is pretty slow. Took about 20 seconds for the screen to come up on this post from the time I hit "reply" That's bad. Very bad. Not conducive to posting at all. I will say, it is not as bad as some days when you had to play solitare waiting for each page to load.... but still not anywhere near as snappy as many of the other boards I visit. Good that it is moving forward.... have you considered ending pic hosting and such.... we could still link in from other pic hosts, and that would not affect your bandwidth so much. Pic hosting is not what I come here for.... information and communication is. Fast and lightweight front end to the info is what I am after! Good work so far tho... I know it's tough.... Edited to add: I have 768k DSL. Still looks like a staturation/latency issue...
