Same here, but the 'slowness' and 'time outs' are very intermittent.
Same here.... But not really too much of a problem.  :)
Size matters - especially if you don't have a lot of space - and N gauge is the answer!

Log in page took 58 seconds to load and I've had 6 time outs in the last half hour. Just when I think of giving up for the evening it starts motoring again ::)

Pah. Spoke to soon as it timed out before accepting the post. Night

 :helpneededsign:why not check where your signal ios coming from as it leaves the NGF server and travels via a number of nodes to your PC. my access is slow tonight (150mb pipe)

Windows users can use traceroute  to do this -

Using Traceroute

Traceroute is a computer network diagnostic tool for displaying the route (path), and measuring transit delays, of packets across an Internet Protocol (IP) network. This section shows how to run Traceroute, and how to interpret the results.
Running Traceroute

To run the Traceroute utility, proceed as follows.

    Open a Windows Command Prompt window.
    At the command prompt, type, tracert ngaugeforum.co.uk

to examine the the domain name and extension that you would like to trace a route to).
It may take a few seconds to respond, but this command will give a traceroute from your computer to the destination you selected.

Note:
You can interrupt Traceroute at any time by holding down the CTRL key, and pressing C on your keyboard.



MAc users can use network utility App.(search with spotlight)

i get these results this evening

so your electrons travel a long way round!

if you have problems run traceroute and post the results here - it will help @Tank  decide where the problems may lie ( not necessarily at NGF Towers!

Hi Railwaygun,

Have absolutely no idea what you are talking about but thank you as might help someone else in need. Just leave me, save yourselves!

I'm getting slow, very slow, forbidden, slow again, fast, fast, fast, this site cannot be accessed, back on slow, OK, slow etc. for the last 4 days at least. Not moaning yet but just letting the powers that be know.

Don't worry, the fridge is right behind me  :D

Cheers weave  :beers:

My access and times have been okay to good most of the time. When the site is slow, so have others been.

It’s cold, so I’m blaming frozen leaves on the line. :D

When it's running slow I note that the progress info box (bottom left when waiting for site to open) spends most of its time showing "Waiting for TLS handshake" this also shows when opening a thread.

Worst I had yesterday evening was over 1 minute to open the site followed by a further minute to open each thread
Cheers MIKE

https://simplysociallyyours.wordpress.com/2012/11/26/it-takes-2-seconds-to-say-thank-you/

Tried Googling 'it takes 2 and half minutes to say thank you'. The only thing that came up was 'N Gauge Forum'  :D and then I couldn't get in for a while  :doh:.

Am still sticking with it, obviously, but it's getting nigglier and nigglier.

Hope it's still 'British Rail - We're Getting There!'

Even the usually unflappable Daffy is giving up trying to play here tonight, so hopefully the Host will react positively. thanks Chris.

Took me about four minutes to open, read and reply on this thread.

Worst performance I've noticed to date.  Must be everyone logging in to read the disappointment about the Pacer  :D

My patience ran out a couple of days ago. I'm getting more time outs than success at present. I think it's the worst it's ever been :unimpressed:
