I apologise to continually harp on this - but for me over the last 30 minutes WZ has been terribly slow. I have again noticed frequent periods of slow-down and have been experiencing some of the multiple click stuff that others have spoken about (that has not been an issue in the past).

The issue I have is that it seems to be getting worse - I haven't been online much over the past few days but WZ has been consistently slow and timeing out everytime i have loaded up a model or some data. I have been surfing other sites (like the BoM and GFS) and these have been as per normal (the fact that GFS has been quicker than WZ is a real worry).

I have contacted my provider( Internode) who noted that the ping times were for the weatherzone.com.au domain were 'pretty attrocious' for a site being served out 60km away.

I do wonder why I have never had any problems with any pages on WZ, never had any pages time out, and all models etc load up in a few secs even considering I'm on dial-up.

Anyone else finding the site sluggish this weekend? I am & with a fast cable connection, I really notice the difference, having to repeat page requests quite often at present.

I have the same issues here David, I just figured it was the usual pace of this site. Very slow for me on dial up and Mozilla 1.0, even slower with IE.

David, I had a lot of slow loads and timeouts yesterday; a few today but it's better than yesterday. When the problem occurs, it's often the embedded images in a page that are the problem. For example, clicking on radar for Sydney, the surrounding page comes up, but the radar image times out. Reloading brings everything up pronto. The problem was happening pretty uniformly through yesterday, including late at night, so I don't think it's traffic-related. I'm on 1.5mb broadband, and all other sites have been functioning normally.

[edit] Maybe I spoke too soon. It took 33 seconds from when I hit the Add Reply button for the "thanks for posting" screen to come up, then a further 55 seconds to get the forum screen to come up. The stats currently show 66 people in the forum.

[second edit] And when I hit edit post that time, I was back in the forum in under 10 seconds!

I actually lodged a complaint yesterday - the responsiveness was woeful!

And it's only weatherzone - every other site opens quickly (I'm on ADSL).
But - what do you do? You say something only to have it denied.

WZ has been very slow with time outs for the second day in a row for me, more obvious on the forums.

I use Bigpond ISDN and every other site I've been using is fine.

Likewise Michael.
Both the main page and the forums are slow as an old woman, similar problems to a few weeks back.

Refreshing a couple of times seems to speed things up a bit confused

for all the complaints i've seen over the last 12 months or so i have never had a problem with loading on dialup and since i've gone broadband its farster than ever.
seems like a location\isp problem to me rather than a weatherzone problem.

A quick note then without posting graphs and crap.. (and things have improved over the last hour or so)
I have run some diagnostic checks in that time, and noticed some bottlenecks bandwidth wise, it is still odd that it is weatherzone only affected thus far.

Anyone else using Comindicos dialin ports?
And/or having issues?

Hi all. I notice big slowdowns during times of "extreme wether" ie storm out breaks or very hot days. I am not on the comindico network anymore. Will see how we go.
By the way, Comindico was bought out by SPTel. ( SPTel owns WINtv and alot more ) I have heard there is some good changes on the way from a contact inside the company. cant wait.

Well I have been unable to get on the site (main site or forum) for a good hour. Just got it back. Once again all other sites are working fine...

I'm with TH.... there is nothing wrong with Weatherzone...
No problems here today or yesterday, and again I have never had any of the problems mentioned in this thread in the years I have been accessing WZ every day...

No - you mean you haven't had any problems with WZ. You can't tell me all is well when I can load up sites from around the world and the only one that doesn't come up is WZ :rolleyes:

There was an outage of our internet connection this afternoon between 5:00pm and 6:30pm. Any users saying there is no issue mustn't have been using the site during that time wink .

Yeah it was out for a while. Went to post some pics and tried for about 30 mins every 5 mins. I knew it would be right at some stage.
No internet site provider is perfect and there will always be outages.

Thank you! Thought I was going mad there....Have to say that recently - other than this arvo - the site has been great. Nice work on fixing some of the hassles we've had in the past. Unable to get on the site at all left me thinking the cyclone had made it ashore a few days early smile

Yer I wasn't on between 5pm and 6.30pm. Unfortunatley I cannot be on the site 24 hours a day.
I must be so damn lucky in the times that i am logged on to WZ in the last 4 years that I have never had any trouble. I must just log on at the right times lol.... then again it might be that I have a good ISP..... I dunno. I find it just very odd....
