Better server for this forum!

Recommended Posts

Being a fairly old MiniCAD user (since version 3.15 I think), I realise, that it was a great idea to have Rich's original Macintosh as the Internet (maybe even corporate) server.

However, constant (mostly unsuccessful) waiting times of 5 to 6 minutes sort of wear me down. At least the person swapping diskettes in the single drive should not be required to other work so that he or she could just concentrate on responding to "Please insert disk 'Top Left Blue Rectangle'".

No, it's no my computer or connection.

Ah, so it's not just me! Of the forums I frequent, the performance on this one is most unpredictable. Sometimes it loads quickly, other times, ugh.

And - "No, it's no my computer or connection."

The tech board here is an absolute dream compared to most australian council websites we have to deal with.

This is a surprise. The VW forum always loads instantly for me. I wonder how many people experience that delay. And why is it different for different people?

It's been painless for me here.

However, I will add a separate complaint about the searches for past posts being limited to 200. That doesn't take you far enough back in time for most subject lines.

Very strange. I use two computers in two locations, one with cable, the other with ADSL - but both with Firefox. Maybe I should try Safari.

When I press, say, Quote or Submit, quite often nothing happens. Only by exiting the situation and returning to it I can get these things to work.

Hmm. Forum loads reasonably quickly over my DSL with either IE or Firefox. Sometimes after composing a post it takes 10 seconds or so to return to the thread, but otherwise never annoys me. I wonder if there is a different server and server connection speed for different parts of the world . . .

OK. For a while I shall play Ernest Hemingway and be on a safari and wear a pitfff helmet instead of the deerstalker.

I always use Firefox (on Windows), and, as I said, always instant loading.

Location certainly could matter, but it's interesting that G Hannigan and I, only 60 miles apart, have opposite experiences. And Ray and Amy, 100 miles apart in Florida, also report opposite experiences in loading speed.

Very Rarely... not accessible or intermittent stalling.

Both the DSL & dial-up connections are fine out here on the frontier

in the middle of the ocean ... separated from civilized life on planet Earth by at least 200 years.

jan15,

I'm also using Firefox (2.0.01) on WXP Pro. It's hard to pinpoint the problem - NNA's server, my ISP, cable system, etc. When the Techboard loads slowly or not at all, other sites seem OK. Go figure!

Check the locations of the slow vs. fast loading comments here. Maybe you should address your complaints to Homeland Security. :-p

I use safari at work with dsl, and internet explorer at home with cable, and at both locations this forum works quickly for me...
