Site on a Go-Slow?

I've been having problems for a few days now, constantly getting the 'IE Cannot display page' message when I click on threads etc

It's only on .org though - not having problems with any other sites so I was wondering if anyone else is having probs?

Or is it just me?

Thanks for that

Maybe it's my IE then, the lack of pages loading has been driving me nuts.

I'll try it on firefox for a few days and see if thats any better.

I am glad you said that as it's still doing it now with FF.

Oh well, I'll just keep copying my posts before hitting the submit button then so as I don't have to keep re-typing them.

Very frustrating though

Jan, when using Firefox.

If i type out a post and then its unable to submit, I don't lose all of the text. If i hit the back button, either on my mouse, or on the keyboard it'll go straight back to the page with all my text in. Therefore i don't have to type it all out again.

It could be a Internet service provider problem?
Or are you ok on other websites?

Have you tried deleting, cookies etc?

Thanks

I know that I need a new modem at home, but work is plumbed straight into the the Supper Janet backbone and I am still having problems with .ORG.

Out of interest, anyone who is on XPF as well, do you get similar problems on XPF?

I often try XPF at the same time to see if it's any better and 9 times out of 10 it is.

Been fine for me, I've been using explorer.

I was interested in the thread as a few users on a forum I admin are having similar problems. Thats a phpbb forum though so must be so unrelated bug...

Its more likely (read: 100% likely) to be your ISP thats having problems rather than your browser, it just being a "dumb terminal" at the end of the day.

What is the problem with this forum, the host is rubbish? It constantly times out anything up to 5 mins at a time and quite regularly. Fed up with having to repost things. I find it very frustrating.
It's nothing to do with either my connection or my ISP as I can connect to other web pages no problem while .org is timing out.

It's certainly bad web performance for me today..pages failing to load on this site.

I'll try the XPF one to see if that's the same

Me too - around 11:00ish I gave up too.

I saw Steve was on line so assumed he might be doins some server maintenance but doesn't look like that now.

Seems a bit better now though
