: Trouble Loading boards

09-04-2001, 08:03 AM
It might be just me but I have long waits and sometimes failures at loading Flytalk boards. It seems to be more prevelant at work from behind our firewall. But it's only this site. Other UB boards work fine. At home with AT+T Roadrunner it's better but still a little slow. If it's just me so be it. But, is anyone seeing this problem? Typically I click on the go to the salwater FF board and it fails so I have to hit "reload" once or twice before it kicks in. I'm using Netscape 4.78. Thoughts? this is really annoying (maybe Juro is trying to get rid of me :-)

Seems to be zippy to me, although sometimes it's slow. Probably during their daily backups? Let me know if it persists.

Same problem here very slow.

Based on two reports, it could be a netscape problem(?).

Bigcat - are you using Netscape as well?

No problems here. Using IE.

IE 5.0 (on a T1) and i've been experiencing some long (20+ sec) waits recently.

Ditto on the e 50 and on a t-1. Slow to load but NOTHING like the International Spey Board site on MSN Canada. Love my country of old, but we've got to get Gates to drop a big dime and get their systems up to date.

You can count on getting dumped out at least 2 of 5 times your on the board. This is a darn and double darn as if you're interested in Spey fishing it's the best site in the world. And folks from all over the world participate.

FWIW, at work IE is not allowed because of it's security flaws. So I will live with it if it's a Netscape issue.

What do you do with your life if a 20sec delay is long, take up motor racing not fishing

IE 5.5, std 56k dialup

Many troubles loading boards during the day, typically I wait 'till dark to log in...

Nah Lefty, we tried to get rid of you earlier but life just wasn't the same ;)
