Why is this site so slow

I have not been coming here for a while now and then I started coming back and using this site again a couple months ago on a regular basis now and it is very very slow compared to what it use to be like. What happened in the last year that made this site so slow and are there plans for fixing it?

Really? A good example would be this thread we are in right now. If I hit refresh it take this page 45 seconds to reload from start to finish. That is an awful long time for a refresh. I do not have this problem anywhere else or on vBulletin.

I wonder why I am getting this problem then? Maybe it is taking the long way and going through china to get to the vB.org server from where I live. It never use to though.

Are you using dial up connection with a 9600 modem?

Check your proxy settings to see if you are not going over some slow proxy server.

Also check your PC for malware.

It is not malware and I don't think it is the proxy settings because I am on DSL.

It does it on every computer I own.

Oh wait, It went back to normal. Everything is loading like it use to now. When I am in a large thread and go from page to page it moves right along again.

When I refresh still takes 45 seconds though. Must be something to do with the refresh.

Many things can cause this. I also get a slow response from this site, even 'cannot find server' at times.

Since this does not affect everyone across the board you have to look at your connection. Many ISPs now have 20:1 and 50:1 connections, 50:1 being the standard. This means you share the connection with 49 others. You also have to look at the load on your local telephone exchange. My local exchange is usually showing 'severe congestion'.

It goes on...

That is not the case here, if it was then all the web sites I visit would be slow during the same time period and that is not happening. This is the only web site that I am having a problem with.

Is there any programs or test I can run to figure out what is causing the slow loading from the internet or where the slow down is coming from on the internet? It must be the internet because like I said this is the only web site I have problems with.
