    every time i try to load this web page it is really really slow, any other pages i go to are fast and even if i clear all temp out they are still fast and this one is slow, i am just woundering if it is me or it is the server that has become to busy????? and my dns cash is maxmized for my speed and my connection is an 8mb so it might be me but i am not sure.

    It's not just you, the site has been slow lately, prob due to high traffic.

    same thing here.. either the server (lots of hits) or lots of traffic congestion in the server's area.. who knows...

    Hmm, the speed has picked up a little here, has been slow all day.
    We think it is due to the site being in the UK and the database being in the USA. It could of course have been problem on the database hosts side. We are working to make XP-erience better and you will seen the culmination of our efforts as soon as we want you to... snoochies.

    EP are you telling members xp-erience is running off DSL when it's really running off of your 56K connection? :p :D
     
  13. Jewelzz i dont mean that. i've asked EP about why it's so slow and he did say it was running off his 56k. i mean that i browse internet with dsl and some stuff still loads slow.

    What do we need to do to solve this prob for good. It's not just today or yesterday it's been sloooow for weeks.

    I love this site!!! A wealth of information.

    With over 20,000 members if we can get at least 10% to contribute $1.00 each that's 2grand. Will that help?

    I am willing to donate to the cause...anyone else?

    Can we get a Moderator involved here and possible set up a Donation box on the home page?

    Let's do it...

    I just checked my connection....it Rips!!!! But this site is like being back on 56k if not worse. I feel sorry for the poor souls on a dialup connection. They probably leave before they even get here.

    I am on dialup... the delay is not connection dependent... on dialup it speeds along... the lag is the connection between the UK server and the US server.

    But don't worry the new US server is almost ready :)
