    Ever since the new front page has gone up, the site seems to be running painfully slowly! I thought it might have just been my gash modem connection, but even now at work where we have broadband its still taking 1-2 minutes to bring up each page!!! Anyone else having troubles?

    Having no problems here on a commercial 576kbps BT DSL pipe... No probs with 1Mb Telewest pipeage either? Pages load in an eye-blink...

    Try doing a trace route to dnbforum.com... See where the problem is...

    Below is what I'm getting, but we got dodgy firewalls a gwannin

    C:\>tracert dnbforum.com

    Tracing route to dnbforum.com [64.246.34.213]
    over a maximum of 30 hops:

    1 <10 ms <10 ms <10 ms KAYAK [192.168.0.1]
    2 * * * Request timed out.
    3 *


    Try it!

    18 hops from this box (uk) to dnbforum.com (remember its hosted in the usa!) 1992 should get the best results hehe.

    10 pings from a *.nl box,

    --- dnbforum.com ping statistics ---
    10 packets transmitted, 10 packets received, 0% packet loss
    round-trip min/avg/max = 127.5/137.5/160.8 ms

    5 pings from my box (uk),

    Ping statistics for 64.246.34.213:
    Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
    Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
    Minimum = 140ms, Maximum = 156ms, Average = 144ms

    boh :)

    Small update, Drift just went through some of my code, he managed to optimise some of the SQL calls etc. So it should improve the speed of the frontpage a weee bit.

    Bigups Driftah :)
