Thread: AO Server

  1. #1

    AO Server

    Yo. I have been coming to antionline for months now and I have always noticed the very very slow downloads I get off this site. Where is this site hosted? Mars? Is there anyone else out there who experiences long wait times for pages to load?

    JP spent a lot of time converting the sites database so that it would go fatser, and it has worked...... If its slow for you you can do one of two things....

    1. Get a better connection because the one you have right now must be pure crap, or,
    2. Leave the site, if you dont like it dont use it... How hard is that to understand?

    I too was having connection issues during the small hours of sunday/monday - and before anyone flames my computer or connection I suggest looking at the trace below.

    I sent this in yesterday to webmaster@AO (I couldn't get the site up so I was just hoping that it would get through to /someone/). And hey-presto, we seem to be ok again this morning.

    In terms of general loading speeds, sure it's a tad slow, but it's generally well worth the wait. Roll on the SUN box

    Yeah, I've noticed it's been slow for a while, but has recently actually gotten better for me. My connnections are pretty solid, for the most part... I just attributed it to the site being so busy/popular that it was taking a bit to get a response from the webserver.

    In any case, the singla to nose ratio is normally decent enough that I don't mind (*grin*) - unless, of course, the post/thread is entitled "woot" or linuxcommando is busy sending people to that (in)famous newbie page. ROFLMAO

    In any case, glad to hear there's even more hardware on the way to support my/our habits. *grin*

    I haven't noticed anything going slower. Maybe I just visit during non-peak times, but for me it's been really good 99% of the time - I have no complaints. If you look at what has to be created dynamically for each page you visit, you have to say that it is pretty quick. I am actually impressed. I reckon JP has done a good job with it all, so as I said, no complaints here, just good feedback from me.
