Re: Using other modules?
The Rules are pretty fast - but then the other pages aren't so bad today either. Maybe it's all in my inmagination.

Re: Using other modules?
There were a few days, last week, when it was slow for me. I wondered whether there was a DoS attack under way. But it could be an ISP router misbehaving.

Re: Using other modules?
There's only one more comparison that I think might be informative, though it wouldn't present a solution. http://sports.espn.go.com is a site that loads relatively slowly because of the amount of content and Javascript initialization. Does a page of EvC messages load faster or slower? If slower then I have no explanation. If faster, maybe 2 or 3 times as fast, then that's pretty much what you should expect.

I just thought of another possible cause. If you're using a machine that isn't particularly robust in the image processing department, then EvC pages that have a lot of image scaling might load more slowly for you. Does this page:

http://www.evcforum.net/dm.php?control=page&t=17232&mpp=1...

Load much more slowly than this page:

Re: Using other modules?
ESPN is pretty fast. EvC is slower sometimes.

Pages with large images are always dreadfully slow.

Re: Using other modules?
Instantly.

The regular pages often take many seconds to load. I go to another website while I'm waiting.

Same here.

Re: Using other modules?
Maybe we can find some common element between you and Ringo.

The one possible problem source that I'm excluding is the server itself. If some machines can render a page of EvC messages quickly, that means the server must be servicing the request quickly, and there's nothing that would cause the server to satisfy requests fast for some people and slow for others.

But maybe there's something about the environment. Can you both let me know the machine type, the operating system type and version, and the browser type and version.

Re: Using other modules?
Well, I see it at both home and work, probably mostly at work. At work a 4 year old Toshiba Satellite running Win7 x64, at home a HP Envy running Win8 x64. In both cases Opera 12.16 ( I don't like the newer versions, and I'd be glad to switch if I could find a browser I like as much).

Re: Using other modules?
Do you have other browsers available that you can try? It would be interesting to know if they're all equally as slow.

Re: Using other modules?
I'll give it a shot. IIRC I tried IE10 at work and had the same difficulty, but I'll test.

Have you tried pinging the server? Quite often these things are caused by connectivity to or at the server centre where the box is hosted rather than server or PC themselves.

Re: Using other modules?
The machine I'm using today is running Windows 7. At another branch I've used one running XP Professional. I always use Internet Explorer. This one is version 10. No other browsers are available on this machine.

That's a good suggestion.

Ringo and JonF: There's a program called tracert (short for traceroute). Open up a cmd window and give the command "tracert evcforum.net". This will list all the hops between your machine and EvC Forum. The last line should have three times in the 100ms range (it sends three packets and measures the round-trip time for each one). If it's significantly larger than 100ms then post the whole trace so I can take a look.
