    Over the past few days, MacRumors has been really slow for me, and I really don't know why. I'm not having any issues with other sites. I have a 16 MB connection, and it's taking 10-15 seconds for the front page to load. The forums are even worse. I've even had a few timeouts while trying to load a page in the forums.

    Is this just me? Or is this happening to other people also?

    I'm on Comcast BTW.

    It has oddly been slower for me as well. Either that or I need to sleep.

    Sluggish on certain page loads lately. Sometimes I have to go elsewhere for a few minutes and refresh mt MR tabs again.

    I've been hearing connectivity troubles in general from my other friends online. Maybe it's a problem higher up across providers.

    a number of users have been reporting the issue here. it isnt 10.5.x specific, nor is it browser specific.

    maybe the internet is finally slowing down ;)

    Every once in awhile I've had to stop pages from loading and reload. I thought it was my connection, but maybe it's MR.

    Probably all the MMS traffic and waiting for 3.1 beta 4 traffic. :)

    Arn needs better servers, or a better upload speed:p

    we arent lucky enough to have any reliable custom DNS servers over here in australia - i doubt there is even one.

    I did notice that on my intels the page would take 5 seconds to start loading randomly though. I just thought it was the fact it is a hackintosh. But I do not know if I have the DNS servers added in yet. On my G4 I get 25 MS adv pings

    The forums.

    The front page is dead to me when I use Forum Spy.

    For me it's both. I'm not having timeout issues anymore, but it's still painfully slow for me. It feels like I'm with AOL again, but only with MacRumors.

    It's these blasted iPhone nuts.

    Most of the slowness is from opening a thread from forum spy. Sometimes I have to reload the page or it takes forever. Also, editing posts can be slow

    Quite often lately (not always, but more often than not) the forums "hangs" on the new blank page, before it even starts loading, for quite a few seconds whenever I click a link.

    Almost like there's an enormous lag in DNS lookup or something...

    Here's a traceroute:

    Those 6 stars on 10 and 11 took several seconds. And when I traceroute google.com it doesn't take that break in the middle...

    Edit: I get this from home (MacBook), work (iMac) and when I was in England recently (iPhone).

    How do I stop terminal?

    I typed "ping forums.macrumors.com"

    It's been going for the last 2 minutes.
    So far, it's on Sequence 75.

    Great. I knew it was something with C.



    21 packets transmitted, 21 packets received, 0% packet loss
    round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 48.048/110.553/1163.569/236.692 ms


    That normal?

    All of the 21 are under 60ms except for one at 160ms, and that one at 1163ms

    depends where you live...from australia i get a 225ms average ping. that 1163ms ping that you had probably had to wait a little bit because of traffic.
