    Have you noticed an increase in speed on both the site and the forums since wednesday?

    Would appreciate your feedback.
    As you may or may not know, we enabled an apache server module gzip which zips up all the pages before you start to download the data. Alot faster for displaying the text data on the page as it is all displayed at once.

    Anyway, let me know. For me personally, on 64k its ooh so much faster :)

    Well you did have those issues where the pages displayed strangely... gzipping should have solved those too!

    I already have a super-fast connection, and, admittedly, I would never have known that you changed things unless you had this thread.

    However, things are running very smoothly, so, at least, change didn't make things worse!

    Same here. Can't really tell the difference on the T3 connection here in the res halls.
    But it's snappy as ever, so it's all good. :)

    There's a MASSIVE difference for me.
    It used to take ages for the pages to load especially after replying to a thread.By the time my reply came up there'd be about 3 replies gone before me :mad:

    I could make a cuppa in the time it took but now its whizzing along :D
