Default Re: Why are the forums so damn slow? (Server speed)

seems to work for me fine at work...

but this explains it...
http://www.ja.net/about/topology/jan...eschematic.pdf
(it's a map of the Universities internet connections for the UK).

I work in a uni that hangs off of the Bristol connection, with three T3 lines connecting (and protecting) my connection, and a BT exchange connection (they are connected in a triangle to ensure reliability...

So Bristol has a 10Gbit/s connection. and I'm connecting to that, and a simillar BT exchange with two 30,000Kbit/s connections...

One of my new years resolutions was to maybe get a new job, if i do, I'm going to really miss those connection speeds...

it also works fine at home, where I have a regular broadband connection.
It could be to do with being connected at different times of the day.

you could always check how fast your connection is...

these are my results...

On another note, why do you have to use the word damm? We have kids on here....
kids need to grow up, 13 is old enough to be able to curse if you really feel you need to.

also, school pcs usually suck and their connection sucs as well because quite a few people are using it.

Its your school, Your on a network on a network of schools.

for instance mine is on panthernet, which is on 0151, which is on santarosa, which is the connected to the outside network and its a server, through server, through server deal. Most american Schools are like that (Says The Tech Guy)
