AVSIM forums download update

Recommended Posts

Good morning all.  Just wanted to pass on my most recent experiences with downloading AVSIM.  As of this morning (7/9/13) AVSIM is taking approx 4 minutes to download a total of 248 forum elements.  This represents a considerable increase in download time on my system.  Previously, my AVSIM forum download times were consistently in the very few seconds.  I am very aware of the difficulties AVSIM has been experiencing and I hope and pray the conditions I am presently experiencing with AVSIM are both temporary and not indicative of continuing and ongoing difficulties that can't be resolved.

 

I have a robust system, use Windows 7, 54 bit and presently use Opera as my browser.

What part of the world are you visiting from? Perhaps things were still getting "started up" on our server when you were trying to visit us. We reset some things yesterday night.


Sincerely,

Till yesterday AVSIM average page loads are about 2 minutes! Browsing from Eastern Europe over a 50 mbit fibre optic. No problems with other sites hosted in the US. Currenttly trying to download the hardware guide (1.6 MB pdf) which takes ~10 minutes.

I am in South Carolina on a high speed internet connection (direct cable).  In addition to the initial download from the web address I am experiencing significant (30 - 90 sec) delays when I click on individual posts, "new content", etc.  It feels as though something is slowing the site down but I do not sufficient technical expertise to describe my experiences with the AVSIM site more accurately than that.  Sorry.
