1. Hey everyone, We’re going to start a weekly email to surface interesting threads in the forums. No worries, you can easily unsubscribe if you don’t find it interesting. If you’re like me, it’s nice to have someone willing to poke around a big community like ours and find the most interesting stuff. Saves time and I hate missing something great. It worked really well when we had someone discovering the best photos for the home page rotation back in the day. And if you have something fascinating to post, maybe this email does everyone some good by getting it noticed. Let us know what you think when you get it. Your feedback will make it better as we go (thread). Thanks! Baldy & rudy1220

    The servers show full speed and we're doing normal traffic levels on both sites, so it's likely latency in the network between your machine adn our servers.

    You can check it really quickly by opening up a dos command prompt window (in accessories, just like notepad and calculator),
    and typing at the prompt:

    tracert 64.71.184.145

    You seem to have a lot of IPs you've used, but the most recent seems to be 12.126.26.186 (0011196.lodgenet.net). I did a traceroute from my desktop to that one and it was 14 hops and several of them had 80-240 ms latency.

    You can also try ping in addition to traceroute. My ping times to smugmug are 17 ms.

    Hmmm... is DNS off, again?

    www.advrider.com = 64.71.184.149

    Pings, and traceroutes are showing acceptable. But I too have been having slow image load times.

    --- smugmug.com ping statistics ---
    7 packets transmitted, 7 packets received, 0% packet loss
    round-trip min/avg/max/mdev = 18.371/20.992/27.570/2.919 ms

    --- 12.126.26.186 ping statistics ---

    judging by that variablility, I'd say the problem is at the users end.

    found a nice old thread with the same question I have...

    several of us have noticed slow page loading and site response the last 24 hours....

    is something afoot behind the curtain?

    I experienced it a little yesterday morning around 7:30 eastern time, and sporadically since then.
