VERY slow loading this morning.

Of course, maybe the fact that my cable is running 3072 kbps this morning has something to do with it.

Took forever to load at first, but now it's just screaming along.

Hold the antenna RIGHT THERE, GB! Don't move!

I believe the site is under an attack from the morons at democratic underground in the form of a couple of those jerk offs openning four or five screens as guests and hitting a "refresh" attack.
If you keep hitting refresh X 5 people you can overload the server pretty quick or at least slow it down to a crawl.
You you can see what forums they are doing it on by which ones won't load or load real slow.
Look at these numbers,

I was having a VERY hard time this morning.

I went to jobrelatedstuff.com and its working fine.

I have no idea why, but thats running faster for me than AR15.com

Does ar15.com use a commercial web hosting company, or is it a bunch of boxes in GB's basement? If the former, I'd be hunting around for somebody else, they don't seem to be doing too good of a job.

Many of those "guests" on the site are web crawlers and spiders that are automated and index the contents for places like Google. At any given time, roughly 40% of the "visitors" on my web sites are spiders (inktomi) and web crawlers. If it's causing a problem for bandwidth, GB needs to edit the headers to disallow them (easy to do).

Got on about 7:30,was ok. Around 8:30-9 would not load. Got back about 11, is running ok.
