I noticed a problem this morning. From about 1 to 3 A.M. (PDT). Same problems that you described. "Could not locate website" every time I tried to navigate to a different page. Clicked the "refresh" and the page opened, but VERY SLOWLY. I had a bunch of other windows opened, and I'm using an older, slower computer with a max. of 28.8 Kbps, on a good day! (Thank you Qwest, for your antiquated phone lines!) Honestly, this has been the first time that I noticed this problem at the Agon site. As long as I keep getting my endless "spam" without any problems!!!!!

I have noticed this phenomenon since last weekend at other sites and it seems to have effected most all forum style websites I frequent. It is inconsistent and quite annoying, I dunno what's up, my firewall is not picking up any unusual activity???? Maybe this is a server problem, are the others who posted in this thread using Roadrunner? I was just suspecting roadrunner to be the problem, its a big problem at www.m3forum.com I can't navigate anything over there right now!
The funny thing about this is that it took me 5 times of trying to submit the original post that started this thread before it finally took. I know that others have had similar problems as they've even started a thread over on AA about this too.
I've been having problems like this on a rather sporadic basis but today was the worst i've ever seen it. While Tim mentions having problems on other sites, it is very rare for me to have problems that affect multiple sites at once. That is, unless something in the "backbone" of the internet system has got a problem.
As to Justlisten ( good to see you back ) and his comment about it feeling like dial-up rather than his DSL, i would have settled for dial-up speeds. Getting a message at turtle-speed is better than getting no message at all : ) Sean
Yes, I've had a few problems like this recently, but nothing that ended a session - usually hitting refresh fixed it. It's also not the first time I've encountered such delays here, but again, for the most part they've been minor enough to ignore in the grand scheme of things. Then again, my computer and connection are pretty slow...
Thanks for the feedback. We are still investigating yet without answers. Everything on our machines seems to working as designed, within their limits, even during the busiest times. Thus, it must be a network related problem, which can be very tricky to track down. We will continue to investigate.
It would be helpful if some of you folks experiencing slowness could tell us which of the following parts seem to be slow to load:
1) Home page
2) New Today
3) Discussion Forums
4) My Page
If you experience slowness again, it would also be helpful if you could go the following sites and tell us how their load time compares:
These are three other servers that we can monitor, that are geographically far apart.
We appreciate your continue help in tracking down this problem.
