    I think the problem is with the backbones that you ISP uses, a few weeks ago Level3 terminated there pairing with cogent so it looks like your ISP uses cogent and the datacenter uses Level3 so its taking longer because it has to find a diferent route to get to the datacenter...

    But last i heard Level3 and cogent have restored there pairing, but im not 100% positve...

    Please, people, please read these instructions before griping on the forums! Griping might make you feel better, but it won't help make the problems go away! While I do read the forums, I don't read them religiously, so please send your reports directly to me via email. (So far, I've received a grand total of exactly *one* trouble report.)

    I have been spending a lot of time on the forums during the past week, and so far I have not seen any problems that cannot be attributed to the problems described in my previously quoted message. As a result, I can only conclude that problems are network related, and that is why it is so important that I see a clean network connection to rule out network issues.

    Another networking issue I failed to address previously is that of DNS. If you get an error like BugByte got, try pinging the IP address (154.6.109.11) directly. If you can ping via IP address but not by name, then you have a problem with your ISPs DNS (this is a rather common problem.)

    Failing a real solution on the log thread issue, I do plan to institute a 1000 post limit on all threads. That is, any thread that reaches 500 posts will be closed for posting, and longer threads *may* be deleted from the archive entirely.

    -p.

    2. Posts and accesses to long threads such as the infamous "My Thread" will often cause MySQL to go off and lose it's mind for 5-10 seconds, stalling all access to the forums. I'm working with the vBulletin authors to see if there is any way arround this other then capping the size of threads.

    I have received several reports of speed issues, and so far they have all fallen into one of these two categories. I welcome reports of problems, but they must contain the following information to be useful:

    1. The date and time (either in local of GMT/UTC format) of the problem

    2. A complete description of the problem.

    3. A ping log during the time of difficulty.

    4. Your IP address

    Here is a good way to create a log file:

    Open up a DOS command window, and type the following commands:

    ipconfig > log.txt
    date >> log.txt
    [control-c]
    time >> log.txt
    [control-c]
    ping -t www.mp3car.com >> log.txt <--- let this run during testing
    [control-c] <---- when done, press [control-c]
    date >> log.txt
    [control-c]
    time >> log.txt
    [control-c]

    Send all this information via email to [email protected], and I'll look into the problem.

    -p.

    I have never had a problem with long threads.
    Maybe the issues with mysql "churning" are because some of the people
    here are using thread settings of 1000 posts per page.
