Has anyone else been having problems getting in to the weg site in the evenings ot during peak times? For the past two days I have had to wait a long time just to get to the home page and I have been getting internal server
errors when trying to go to a forum.
I have tried on to different puters at two different addresses. I don't think its me but it could be...

God Bless :)

I can't access this site from my home computer. Only from 'work'. My home computer freezes ie5 whenever I come to this site. It's wierd because this is the only site it's done it to.

You don't stop playing because you get old, you get old because you stop playing.

Thanks for the update John!
I am sure you all are doing the best you can to offer the service you offer. I appreciate your work. I was mainly concerned with my end. I had been trying some new ideas with reg settings and I thought a had a problem.
I was just curious to see if others were having the smae problem...I'm chilled...thanks

God Bless :)

think of it this way --- can a 486 (33 sx) run a quake 3 arena server w/ lets say 64 ppl playing? HHEECK no.. well the server they have running now is prolly nice and all and not a 486 but they also have THOUSANDS of requests coming in at any one time.. and it can't handle it all -- not many servers (cept like huge servers for huge corps. can) can handle that.. shrug

I have the same problem with IE freezing when trying to go directly to this site. I have to use the bulletin board section to get in. I am going to do a new install of my favorite os (courtesy of my friends at Speedguide) soon to see if it solves the problem.

I've never had a problem going to this site. Always loaded quickly on my Cable (You heard me right, CABLE) modem. I personally prefer cable because it's cheaper, and has about the same speed (Can reach higher speeds, but it's inconsistent, and usually doesn't).
I still think it's efficient.

If you fail to prepare, you prepare to fail!!
Now how can I get my cable to run at optimum speed?

Yeah, i have had problems for the last three days accessing this site from my home computer. From work, i have no problems. I thought it may be sometype of setup problem on my end. Anyone else with this problem?

Chill out man! Philip is working on our new server which is going to kick ass! I couldn't get to speedguide yesterday either- I know it sucks. There are some problems with the main pages of speedguide for some people, for Some reason. We don't know why, ask philip he does the coding. We are working to try and keep everyone happy and the site up- we aren't as perfect as your ISP.

I COULD not access the bbs from like 7pm to 2:35 am. I thought my connection went to shiz.

I had the same problem with IE freezing. Here's what I did to fix it. I want to ADD/REMOVE programs in control panel. I then highlighted on IE 5 and clicked remove. It them gave me a number of choices. One of the options was to repair IE, I choose that. It seems to have worked, it havsn't froze on speedguide.net since.

The site was overloaded Wednesday and Thursday evening, it's the Forums CGIs that overload the CPU, not a bandwidth problem. We're in the process of setting up a second server just for the UBB, it will be functional soon and it should take care of slowdowns at peak times. Sorry about the inconvenience, we're working on it.
