    It's taking much too long to load the individual pages. I ran a tracert to the server here and all is ok except for one hop that consistently comes back over 250ms - unknown.level3.net

    Anyone else?

    At least if it is fast for others I know it's not the board!

    If this helps Jim, I checked in with one of my office servers that constantly monitors worldwide internet traffic at crucial router points, the only ones in North America with problems are :

    router.spindustry.com, Iowa 62ms Ping 62% Packet Loss

    ac-gw.dandy.net, New Jersey (Atlantic City) 538ms Ping 50% Loss

    sl-gw26-pen-0-0-0.sprintlink.net, Virginia 202ms ping 0% Loss

    mail.pugetsoundcenter.org, Washington 0ms ping 100% Loss

    Check the tracert for these.

    I have noticed that my connection to internet in general has been much slower than usual. But that should have nothing to do with the board. What do you think that could be, eric? Is the Corporate Man screwing me again, slowing down dialups so everyone pays to switch to a direct connection? :D

    I was about to post that everything was back to normal this morning, that was until I clicked on this thread! It took a little over a minute to fully load, where it usually takes about 3 seconds.

    Tracerts all come out fine today.

    It just takes forever to load all the .gif files. It'll have 20 or more left to load and just hang. Doubtful it's the board, Sql server or www server as everyone would experience the same issues. I use Optimum Online as my provider, but so do at least 4 other users on here. Not all users are routed in the same fashion though. Even stranger is that I don't have trouble with any other sites, although I'm not sure if I'm hitting any on the west coast where this site is hosted.

    Here's a little screen shot of my futility!

    P.S. Eric - thanks for the tests.

    P.S.S Bry, you're still on dialup? Any DSL or cable where you are located? Just curious why anyone stays with dialup when there are faster alternatives these days that don't cost too much more.
