Even if it is the same x people, why are they only having problems with this site?

Who knows, but if you have got a very bad connection and EPZ has an off or slightly slower day, the problems could be amplified.

But isn't that what we're talking about Paul?

Last time this was going on I ran the speedcheck things and alll was well. Admittedly, I haven't bothered this time but I doubt that anything's changed. And surely, even if I did have a bad connection, then wouldn't everything else be suffering? It really is just this site and it's nothing new.
For that matter, do websites have off days?

My Speedtest yesterday (when I started this thread) at virtually the same time;-

Download: 14.56Mb/s
Upload: 1.00Mb/s
Ping 45ms

Today: (with epz is operating relatively normally)
Download: 14.50Mb/s
Upload: 0.96Mb/s
Ping 37ms

so nothing has changed much, except the ping time..is that reflective of the speed of the signal?

Summats occured!

Just had a very quick look at "My favs" & everything ran like wildfire.
Unlike earlier, when my own PF images were taking up to 20 seconds to load

A damn silly question, but why is it when I paste my trace up, it doesn't show it all?

It is there when I start the comment, but when I preview the comment, it has been condensed

Quote:I was at a friend's house over the weekend on the opposite side of the country and he has a fibre optic connection and a brand new computer. His speed was almost as bad as mine, particularly when first connecting, again no trouble with any other sites


Well if he has BT infinity it will still be copper wire between your house and the cabinet Smile


Quote:The user downloads a small piece of software then the tech guy - say DB - can connect to your PC and can look at the system configuration, browser add-ons etc. As well as witness ePz speed


My guess is, he already has enough to do.

Back a year or two ago, Lobsterboy(Chris) suggested I install flsh player, which I thought I had at the time, but whatever happened it worked for me, and still does.

As I stated yesterday the speed has gone into mega speed mode ever since I started moaning about the slow speed...so as they stated earlier ....How can we fix it if you don't moan...I DID/THEY DID.

I also said yesterday that I know of people who have virtually given up on epz because of the slowness...they also said it was trying to cram too many things into the can so no wonder it went slow...they will not complain as they either could not get on or had given up.
Does this not worry "then upstairs".

keith

oops...this just took a good 20 secs to load.

I seriously doubt that there is any relationship - if it was that easy to speed things up it would be flying all the time.

Yes, which is why they are trying to understand the problem.

If you guys think this site is slow you wanna try Dell's. I've been trying to decide what computer/monitor etc. to order and I can honestly say you could cook a sunday roast in the time it takes to get from one bit to another.

I did have speed probs similar to MalcolmS has described, but it seems to have got better lately. Nothing I've done, so it must be EPZ's work. Mind you, I still can't get the versions to upload sometimes so I just skip them. Frustrating.

It appears that there have been some issues with the mail routing which sends out notifications. This would have caused some delays when adding comments and uploading as it would have slowed down the sending of the notifications. However, we do have plans to further improve this by off loading the notifications onto a server task rather than when comments are uploads are done.
