Pages slow to load?

Discussion in 'ARRSE: Site Issues' started by TheBigUn, Mar 13, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Is anyone else having problems with Arrse pages loading slowly?

    I’ve tried a few other websites and pages load quickly but Arrse pages are taking their time? :?

    It may just be my machine, my ‘tinterweb or even me and it is Fri 13th after all? :D
  2. Ditto that, mine is slow aswell???
  3. Yep. Slow for me too.

    Yes. Agonisingly slow. Bodering on dead.

    Rebooted, cleared history, all that stuff.

    It's an ARRSE issue - all other webpages are fine.
  5. Went totally pearshaped in the small hours for me and is like a piss poor dialup connection at the moment

    Mine is slow, and has been getting slower over the past week or so.

    I put it down to the large number of people who think it's big, clever or funny to put several moving pictures in their sig blocks. I thought the slowness was due to searching for and loading them.

    If I'm right, maybe the COs could consider a choice of switching them off?

    I guess the COs monitor this Forum?
    Has anyone pinged them?
  8. Phew! Thought I was being a techno - biff...well..more than usual :) Very the site feeling "end of week-ish"?
  9. ping the COs
    how very dare you sir!

    slow for me too
    thought it was the network i was mismanaging here

  10. Not only slow but completly failing to connect one in three times. Still connecting to other sites at normal speeds.
