Maybe is just perception?

__The forums seemed to load slow at home on our 33.6kbps modem, but it loads at the same speed at college, and that's a T1 piggybacked on a T3. (Averaging 35-60 Kbps.)
__It either could be the GameDev server, or the fact that the site runs on ASP (I hedge my bets on the latter.)

I have a 56K6 connection so I think that is no problem. The problem is where it seeks
as0.cybereps
At that point it hangs a lot.

BTW,
today it is all fine and fast again.

yes, as0.cybereps.com is the one that stalls the whole thing, usually for up to 10 seconds. very annoying, because it has to contact it every page on the board.

right NOW (2:34am) it's fine though..

Sometimes (like now) it takes ages for the forums to load. This is very annoying.

Anyone experiencing this too?
Or is it just my connection

Myopic Rhino,

I beg your pardon, but your statement makes no sense. Every page used in this forum is an ASP page (just look at the address), plus this forum is based on "ASP Forums", an entirely ASP-based web forum. If I am wrong, please correct me, but saying that no ASP is used is clearly false.

As to ASP being "slow", that makes no sense at all. ASP is server side scripting and is dependent on the server itself. If the machine is decent, it will crank just fine, assuming the server is good enough to keep SQL running. We won''t get into SQL server now Perhaps they need to beef it up, or perhaps it is overtaxed with other tasks.

I''d appreciate any further info.

I am not sure if any of you noticed, but the dates on these posts are all over the place.... Is this an old message that has been recently reposted?!

Kepler: At the time of this posting, the forums used UBB. On the 1st of January, we switched to our own custom software to allow integration with a site-wide user system. This forum is loosely based on ASP-Dev Forum, but we rewrote most of it and added a slew of new features, while at the same time keeping the look and feel the same as the UBB we used. We also imported all threads from the old forum, so there are a few, like this one, that should be ignored.
