    Last few days I've had problems loading pages on the site, its been real slow to load a page, or it hasn't loaded at all and failed. Even as I type this the smilies to th right haven't loaded, my net is fine as my gaming and downloading is all working properly.

    The pages always load slow for me... I had a look, but there is a bit that could be done to improve load times:

    If the web guys want to check it out, http://code.google.com/speed/page-speed/ is a plugin for firebug that analyses load times. I've set most of them up on my server, so would be happy to offer suggestions.

    Yes recently I've been getting some load errors, thinking it was just site traffic at the time I pushed it away, but seeing as other people are getting it too..

    Sometimes, for brief periods of time, the Site doesn't load at all.

    ill talk to the tech who manages our webserver and see what he has to say. personally, I have not seen any problems.

    if you guys could post your locations id appreciate it as it could be a routing issue.

    My internet is fine and fast at home, yet i struggle loading the site. Yet at work, its a fair bit faster to load the site, which usually isn't the case as work's internet sucks. Work is in central London, I'm in Essex (east of London)

    I have a feeling this is locational. I run fine (Alaska/California at the moment), and I've never had a problem... except when I'm an idiot and type tf2maps.org.

    Actually, I live in Baltimore area, Maryland(US) and have been having trouble loading this site in particular. It wasn't always like this, I'd say it started slowing sometime last week or this week.
    I'll post a tracert later

    Yeah, in Aus a tracert went from 20 ping locally to 350 ping through 1 hop
    My new net connection significantly improved load times and pings:

    Typically, the site seems to stop loading for me after replying to a post directly. New Jersey, by the way.
