    when browsing all other web sites,everything loads normally untill i try to access ntfs.org then it slows down considerably i'm using fastnet99.
    any ideas why it might be so slow?

    I'm on dialup & for the past week or so, off & on, my entire surfing is slow. Sometimes it takes over a minute for one page to load. For me it is not restricted to ntfs. But what a pain it is. I've given up trying to download. :(

    Yep,
    I have to agree, it is slowing Down, very erratic at times and I'm on ADSL.

    When I go to NTFS.org, my browser (IE6 SP1) doesn't cache the images, so it is kinda slow, but since I have cable, I don't mind at all.

    Its a popular site, so there is a lot of traffic, and I dont think NTFS.org has the same kind of bandwidth as Yahoo! and others like that.

    Still pretty fast here, laggy every now and then, but nothing major.

    The internet is moody at times I guess...

    I'll remember to mention it to waddy, then it can be looked into. Tho he has noticed a slowdown, sure we can work it out.. The speed of the site is currently more important to us than the way it looks (which is a new way of running a site for me :) ) - naturally the content is always important.

    I wonder why this happens for you, cashing is fine for me.

    we should try to work this out.

    why don't you start a new thread, and we'll try to sort through it

    The average page size here is 100k, that is not bad at all, but there are alot of images that may make it slow from some people :(
