    Hmm nothing seemed to gripe the pc as I have monitoring tools but some auto tests through the night alerted me to fasthosts having a issue I think.
    Seems fine for me but I was not on the site this morning.
    Let me know if it starts doing it again.

  5. Thanks to ZeroHour from:

    I noticed this too recently until I realised Orange were having some serious DNS issues. I lost internet connectivity on and off for a few hours which was frustrating.

    Calling Orange's helpline stated "We are experiencing a very high volume of calls at the moment, with customers reporting Page cannot be displayed errors".

    All is well now though. I've had no issues with Fasthosts recently, but I believed Edugeek had its own dedicated server?

    Sorry off topic (kinda) but do you think the forum is slower when you use it on the CLC connection? When I am using it at home or not using the CLC connection its much faster.

    The forum is definitely slowing up big time! I time it at approximately 13 seconds consistently to load any thread. Compare this to vBulletin's own forum (which is what Edugeek uses) and it takes around 2 seconds to load a thread.

    I'm currently running IE7 on XP SP3, Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz and 2GB of memory. My router is currently synchronised at 7616 Kbps Downstream and 608 Kbps Upstream.

    I don't have any slow down issues browsing other sites.

    @Michael: Stop rubbing it in that your net connection is so much better than mine!

    When ZeroHour gets back to sunny Scotland, I'm sure he'll investigate the slowness.

    LOL

    It seems to be fine for me and I did not notice anything yesterday but let me know if it repeats itself.

    I am working on a thanks fix but I did not have time to get it done as I was at the conf. Give me time though (beer permitting )
