    Just what is it about this site that is slowing it down.., oh yes..fucking adverts.

    I'm on a 40mbit FTTC connection, and the load times are a joke, anywhere from 4-8 secs to get a full page load, sometimes longer.

    I'm running a 3.8Ghz Quad Core CPU, with 8Gb Ram, and a Radeon 6950 GPU, so god knows it's not that my PC cant cope.

    Eurogamer...if you're gonna fill your site to the brim with adverts, then get some decent fucking servers to run them off.

    Hey, I'm not the technically stunted fuckwit having a pop at a free website with a large dollop of entitlement. Fuck off yourself.

    Is a website being "free" an actual thing now?

    Get bent.

    What internet browser are you using, any add ons or other programs slowing down your experience, do you maintain your computer, have you done an internet speed test etc ?

    My laptop isn't close to those specs and I don't have a problem with the speed of this website.

    No, he's right, the site is taking ages to load, it's just funny to watch him get bent out of shape.

    There needs to be a link to this thread in the OP of the "Why is the forum dying?" thread.

    Get bent.

    Bit harsh, I thought he's done a good job so far to be honest.

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    I'm pretty sure it's the sheer number of FBI agents spying on Madgod_Dc that's slowing the site down at the moment.

    BAAANG!!!!! EXPLOTION!!!!!

    Perhaps everybody missed the part where i said..

    Eurogamer...if you're gonna fill your site to the brim with adverts, then get some decent fucking servers to run them off.

    I'm not complaining about the adverts per se, just the fact that EG's servers cant cope with demand and if they don't want to lose readers, they should get infrastructure that is appropriate..

    Actually, now it's on my mind, I've noticed it does seem to hang for a couple of seconds from time to time.

    It's nothing to do with the adverts, I've blocked them and the site still runs like shit.

    All the bandwidth's being used for the Quake 2 multiplayer sessions at Rezzed.

    It's nothing to do with adverts but the site is as slow as fuck and has been for quite some time using any browser/ISP/OS combo.

    It feels like the DNS has farted. Click a link and it just sits there for nearly 10 seconds with no network activity beyond the initial ping, and then the site loads. It's nothing to do with the site's bandwidth either.

    It's certainly running poorly, perhaps it needs turning off and on again?

    This space left intentionally blank.

    Can we end posts with question marks yet?

    edit: Yes! The site is being rather slow, mind. Having some problems with all threads either appearing as read or unread too.
