No I agree, I do think it seems to have slowed down a bit lately.
6 miles out of Cambridge and I can't get broadband, so still on 56k with a 2-hour cutoff.
Biggest problem I seem to have is chopping and changing between threads - even on dial up it didnt seem to be as slow as it has been lately. But what the heck, its still the best trading website in the UK - if not the world. :cheesy: T2W rocks baby!!(as much as a website can without scantily-clad ladies, anyway)
I too am on dial-up 56k AND AOL.
Response time seems fine to me.
I was at a friends on Saturday who has 1 meg cable broadband.
Access time for T2W was no different (i.e. not faster) compared to dial up.
It was quite disappointing really. I assumed that Broadband would be a lot faster.
i'm currently surfing the board on someone else's PC, and it's cable connection with a dedicated hub blah, and the pages load up wayyyy slower than when i'm surfing on my laptop that has the aforementioned crappy AOL dail-up connection
Sorry only just spotted this thread - I noticed a slowdown myself particularly over the period mentioned. However the siutation has generally improved. Would anyone else like to comment on the current speed they're accessing the site.
A couple of things worth mentioning, the automatic links to glossary terms will slow down the page somewhat particularly where a number of posts are viewed on a single page. Try turning this feature off here: http://www.trade2win.co.uk/boards/member.php?s=&action=editoptions > "Automatically link glossary words in Posts?" - it should speed up the page loads.
We're also upgrading the database server over the next few weeks, and this should also result in a noticeable speed increase.
just fyi, i was having problems logging on yesterday late afternoon, early evening.... then when i did manage to access the site, it was a bit slow.... seems ok now tho'... will turn of the thingy you mention above....
