Title: Slow, slow, quick, quick, slow
Post by: Newportnobby on June 22, 2018, 08:51:45 pm
Is it just me or is the forum a bit 'all over the place' lately?
Normally it all churns over at a reasonable speed but all of a sudden in replying to a post or reading all unread posts and it just hangs for what seems ages.
Likewise, most of the time when I give a 'Thank You' it just hangs while 'Loading' is displayed at the top of the page. This often takes so long I abandon the 'Thank You' and just move on by pressing 'Home' and then reading the next unread post.
If it's just me then I'll shut up and suffer.

Itís not too bad but just a bit of a niggle sometimes.

Unfortunately, that is normal for me, living where I do. The, (slightly better), internet connection at work is the only reason I work part-time and have not fully retired!  (Well, that and the money of course). ;D

And another reason why I am looking to return to blighty in the not too distant future.

For me looking at unread posts brings up 6 or 7... I used to get 1999 pages or I may be exagerating a bit.

It's totally inconsistent. One minute it's racing along and then, for one or two posts or replies, it just hangs. Then it's off again like a good 'un. I don't have any such issues with other websites.
I agree BT Infinity speeds are not the best they could be in my area but they are the best of a bad lot. I won't contemplate a smart phone as reception in this area is  :censored:awful on all networks so my prehistoric mobile doesn't even work at home ::) (Mind you, my last company supplied me with a mobile phone which didn't work at their premises :doh:)

Maybe your solution is that I move home. Happy to do so if you care to underwrite my mortgage :P ;)

I had noticed it being slow the other day, everything else on the web was fine but it was slow to respond; restarted browser etc. still sluggish.

Today it is zipping along though.

Continues to be OK here.

Ah well, if you're going to move, Mick, it's only one more long haul to Australia  >:D :beers:

So when you hit the site your request gets directed through one of the hosting companies load balancers, generally they are fast, but if you live in the North, it has to go through the one near Whitby, which unfortunately at the moment is facing staffing issues due to Daphne being on her holidays in Skegness and her colleague Mabel having to do all the data entering on her own, usually Mabel would read your requests and Daphne would patch you through to the correct place, but at the moment the poor old Duck is having to do it all herself.

Mick, its fine here so can only assume the issue is with your machine not refreshing  or your broadband

Now where have I heard that before? :hmmm:
No issues with other sites, like I say

Iím with you, NPN. The database queries that build the pages are fine, but every so often there is no response until *stop* & *refresh* are hit, when normal service is resumed. This is platform & provider agnostic. Apple/Windows/ mobile/landline.
