The shroomery needs a new host because bandwidth is slow ><.

Can you give us more info than "it is slow".

Most likely it is on your end.

Well, if you want me to get technical I might as well... The shroomery is probably running off of a free host that delivers limited bandwidth or has a bottleneck when many people are all logged onto the boards. Sometimes the page loads slow, or it takes awhile to get from place to place. You get the ie "hang" where the bar doesnt completely go. My connection doubtful but possible. Theshroomery just has a bad ping. Iv'e tested it on several mechines running on a T1 with a fiber network or my home cable 1.5mbit. Maybe its just the distance from your host to my location.

well a ran a ping on the host server from my location from dos and i get 50~250 ns which is acceptable. But the boards just hang on occasions. And this is a non peak time for cable. and other pages load just fine. just the boards load slow. I think its a scripting error on the page or my browser that is creating the hang up. Windows has alot of evil ways to fuck up performance on your machine. so if your loading good on 56k maybe its here. but nothing I can do to fix that then. hmm. never connected good to .org webhost sites.

i average 287ms sending 32 bytes. it should make no difference at all whether you are connecting to a .org or a .com or a .net or whatever. if you were connecting to a .uk or a .uranus or something then you might experience some slow down. get linux on yr box or something. what version of windows r u running? get updates/patches? your statement that the shroomery just has bad ping is misleading. i think ping is a relative measurement. it measures the time it takes a given number of bytes to travel to a server and back to your computer. so both your computer and the server have a hand in the final reading.

Actually we bought our own server, worth over $2000 USD and its a top notch machine.. We have a speedy site, since the upgrade we've gotten nothing but compliments on speed..

So it must be something on your end.

do a tracer route
if there is a bottle neck somewhere between your ISP and theshroomery, you would show lag and a traceroute would show where it is.....

this server is fast......really

Its my location. Got a box thats got firewire, water cooled, partitioned drive with win 2k pro and its all scsi. amd 1.7gig overclocked. 1gig sd with a k7 dragon board. its not my comp. I have updated patches. Using a ping is the only way to relitivily judge your speed. Some sites I just get crappy ping when alot of people are on boards. and it was only the board section that was lagging... There is a bottlekneck somewhere. lack of bandwidth. Because i was running 1882kb/s on dslreports.com and pcpitstop.com when I was lagging on your site..

The Shroomery box (a dual AMD 1800+/15,000 RPM SCSI system) is hosted on a multi-megabit line. If you are only talking about the slowness of the "Main Index" then that is because it has to count new threads/replies for every forum and we have ~500,000 rows in the database. Try using the "Mark all read" feature.

i came up with other things that are just interesting to know.

If you watch the hit counter the shroomery gets some 150K hits a day, im pretty sure more then half are just refreshes. How many unique hits a day does the shroomery get, and how much data does the shroomery spit out a day.

That solved it. I hit mark all and it works flawless now. Just a simple little error that I read into too much because I'm a computer nerd and thats what they do.

UT wouldnt take advantage of the duel CPU's and lack of a good 3d card would put a big hit on the FPS.

My box: Athlon XP 1700+, 256mb 2100 DDR, GeForce3 Ti200@500, u160 15,000RPM fujitsu hard drive.

Runs UT perfectly at 1280x1024 with over 100FPS.

now quake3 on the other hand would make use of both CPU's but without a 3d card q3 would refuse to run.
