Itís a bit slow generally.
The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.

I'd say the last few weeks has been slow, but since changing server over a year ago it has been quick.

Just out of interest @Tank, how have the traffic levels been through the lockdown? I probably check the site half a dozen times a day now, compared to once or twice when life was busier.

The internet is groaning under the volume of ladies in leotards Zooming their Pilates classes.  A typical class of 50 means 50 HD video streams.

It is exceeding the "traditional" highest volume use of the internet  :goggleeyes:

An interesting part of the forum that I like to look in is the forum stats - https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?action=stats  It certainly shows that May was a busy month!  :)

I thought it was just the normal slow pace of life here, but I have had a few 'forum not responding' screens over the last couple of days.

Not exactly a new thing is it @Newportnobby ? I've been watching them for years on the tinterweb. I think the estimate of a class of 50 equalling 50 HD video streams is wildly out, I reckon you could multiply that by 10 for those watching but not taking part  :goggleeyes:

EDIT: By the way, speed seems fine here in Wiltshire  :thumbsup:
