    Server Issue Today

    Well it seems much better this am (8:20 est). Don't know if this helps but yesterday afternoon I couldn't log on at all and what was weird (and I've never seen this before) was that the tab label wasn't popping up right. Instead of the usual "SatelliteGuys.US/index", it just had part of it -...

    Having a separate Dish HD Forum must be too complicated for many people.

    Sorry to hear about your furnace. I'll bet there's even an appropriate forum on SatGuys to find help / advice with it. IMHO, Hall's last post was completely in context with this thread and I think your remark about him was a bit out of line but hey, it's your forum. I don't always agree with...

    Having a separate Dish HD Forum must be too complicated for many people.

    Never mind. The fact that this thread was moved epitomizes why the concept is lost on some people anyway.

    Having a separate Dish HD Forum must be too complicated for many people.

    Why bother having a separate forum for Dish HD if you're going to allow people to continue to create HD related threads in the regular forum? Apparently the concept is just too complicated for some people as it seems to have really gotten out of hand lately.

    Hows the server?

    Even I've noticed it's a lot better (knock on wood).:)

    Server Overload

    Oh and btw Scott, FWIW I'm changing pages real quick right now. Took the usual long time to get into SatGuys but at the moment (Tues 11:55am) I'm moving great. Spoke too soon I guess. Now it doesn't want to send this page.

    That you know what that stuff even means is impressive to me.:)

    Server Overload

    It's weird that it's just some of us, some of the time. I'm sure Scott is trying to do all he can and quite willing to do more if anyone knew what that would be. For myself, I just plain don't know enough about computers (especially internet & network issues) to know if it's something I can...

    Server Overload

    This site is by far the slowest site I access on a regular basis and has been for a long time. While some days are worse than others, SatGuys always takes at least 2 to 3 times longer to load and change pages as any other site I access. While I'm not saying it doesn't have something to do with...

    Site running slow?

    Thanks Scott and I agree with you but it's so frustrating sometimes because ISPs (Charter anyway) never seem to want to admit there's a problem at their end. What can a person do if the problem is somewhere inbetween? How can we even tell? I mean when you look at those 2 trace routes I sent...

    Site running slow?

    Ok, I have not done a thing to my system since my last post in this thread, which was yesterday at 1:30 pm and now it's like 300% better. Pages that were taking 20 or more seconds to load Sat through Tues now load in about 5 seconds. I haven't even shut my computer off since then. Here's a...

    Site running slow?

    I don't know what to think. It just took 20 seconds to get into this reply window. I wish I wasn't so dumb about this stuff. It must be one of those hops between here and satguys that's messed up but I don't know how to go about getting it fixed.

    Site running slow?

    Ok, things were just a little better (did you do anything Scott?). I was just browsing abound the Dish forum and page changes were a little quicker. About 10 -15 second aaverage to switch pages, with another 2 or 3 seconds to finish the blue bar and say done. Still terrible but better than it...

    Site running slow?

    I also tried logging off this site which clears cookies too. Of course on my next visit, it came up with all the ads, which took 45 seconds. I then logged in, which took a long time and came to this thread. Just now, it took 25 seconds to load this reply window. Not sure what to do next...

    Site running slow?

    This is so tedious even trying to respond to you guys. It takes half a minute to even get into a reply sindow.:( Anyway, just got off online chat with charter and that was a real bust. He said something about rebooting my modem and clearing cookies. I told him I had already tried all that...

    Site running slow?

    Ok, hopefully this trace route will be more informative. Like I said, SatGuys is the only site currently giving me this problem. It takes at least half a minute or more to change pages.

    Site running slow?

    Here it is but I really don't know what to look for or how to interpret it. I guess green is good but I see # 12 doesn't look so hot. Anywho, you know me Scott, I don't really understand this sort of thing very well, I just know right now it's petty tedious moving around SatGuys. I just tried...

    Site running slow?

    Scott, I'm having an awful time too with SatGuys. Yesterday and today. Like 30 seconds to change a page. I've completely "cleaned" my machine with Norton's and "PC Pitstop Exterminate". Other sites I've checked zip by fine, so far it's just this site that's running slow - real slow. Walt
