Re: Hows your AO surfing speed?

Seems super quick now whatever was done. Before it was OK - some threads would take longer than others to open.

However I have recently done some sorting out on my own pc - main thing was to delete Norton anti-virus and replace it with a programme that was less damaging to the pc's other operations.

Taking about 5 seconds to open a thread here in the land of OZ.
This seems about normal to me.

Much much quicker than before. Makes sense, the data has only a fraction of the distance to travel for people in the UK before, plus there are much fewer hops as well.

Just ping'd the server, averages ~20ms return trip - waaaaay quicker than before.

Re: Hows your AO surfing speed?

Hi, it was just little ole me, ive been up to stupid o clock, it was well stressful as at one stage as I thought the back up was corrupted. I could have cried, but we are back at least. When the new board comes, trust me, its much quicker!

Re: Hows your AO surfing speed?

The sweat and tears, no blood

I know its only 18 people voting when i posted this, but early indications are pleasing, it seems its all been worth it, I am satisfied.

@Kurzon: Some new parts of the board utilizes Ajax, for instance, it doesnt actually have to load the page, when you press the submit quick reply button, it will simply just add the post, not make a whole page refresh just to add some more text. It is definatley quicker and even this server has made a diffence to the test board, I am running it accross at fiatowner.com right now.

Thanks for the feedback, I am smiling now.

Ian

Re: Hows your AO surfing speed?

It's always been pretty quick for me (while I am work, anyway - dial-up at home doesn't seem as quick for some reason...... ), so I haven't really noticed any difference.
