Is it me or........
« on: December 27, 2003, 10:24:46 AM »
Since yesterday I have been finding OCNet incredibly slow to load - it takes about 19 secs ,or even longer ;o to load a page , and it often does it in 2 stages - the top half first and then adds in the bottom half.

I've cleared out my cookies, cleared the Cache, cleared my history - the only improvement is the speed at which it pulls up the Site - loading is still lousy.

No other Boards that I use are like this even those in the US - just OCNet :(

I use OSX and Safari and it's usually very very fast.

Anyone else having problems ?

80 secs to get this preview up !! Timed it on the menubar clock -- Aaargh -- Redoc retsam where are you ??

No problems at the moment for me using blueyonder, although I usually get a couple of days a month of treacle.

Do you have to use a Mac or do you have access to a proper computer  :P

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH - fighting talk there :P

Proper computer indeed - hmm I'm miffed.

It's lovely friendly wireless iBook - and it's ALL MINE :D

the PC downstairs belongs to  him who thinks he's the boss and it has problems - you know the sort of thing - the dreaded BSofD - Macs don't get that sort of thing.

Have to say I was wondering if it was the 'new Xbox, PS2, GameCube or Counterstrikewhotsit' causing havoc.

Wireless is a great leap forward. I've got a card shoved in my notebook so I can wander round the house and still be connected. And I got myself a bluetooth IPAQ to try and organise my life.

Who's your ISP?

believe it or not - NTL - went to them in Feb for first go at BB have to admith that so far we have had a great experience - only one outage and that was the Channel Cable damage - so not down to them. We actually have 3 machines on - 2Macs and the monster. The book is on wireless 'b'.

OOOOOOh bluetooth - now that must be fun - don't think I could justify that :(

Perhaps the current status of the internet backbone router in Ireland might explain your problem.

You know - you could be correct - after all I do use NTL and we had a massive outage last month due to Channel cable damage, and one to Ireland as well.

Thanks for that bit of info

yup - I was indeed picked up that way ! Can't find it now - but possibly November -- ah  -- now hang on--  the memory has just kicked in - it was when the cables were damaged - about 4pm UK time . I remember commenting the following day about it.

Well strange things can happen when folk damage cables - OK can't blame anyone except the digger man

Well last night's little hiccup bandwithwise actually proved what the problem was . As soon as we were up again I was back to normal.

Must remember that next time it goes like treacle and warn the Emperor to check how we are doing  :P :P

And it's been sooooooooooooo peaceful here too - just us sensible folk  :D :D :P

They call this "surfing the web, naked" ;)
