MBN slow...?

Is it just me or is the MBN forum quite slow the past few days?

Pinging el-muerte.student.utwente.nl isn't particulary slow (13 ms), but when browsing the forum it takes some while to load all pages.

Something known or just bad luck?

Indeed, the main-page is very very slow It contains the search new posts link, so it's pretty annoying

It's because is browser is trying to load a rendom MBN quote and the MBNQDB is down. so it takes a minute until it stops trying and loads the rest of the page. (hehe, I deserve a cookie)

CF, also sometimes. But the forum is as well quite slow when just browsing. Or maybe that's just me :-\

The forum isn't slow.. only the main forum page is slow but that;s because of the MBN quote DB.

And I don't have a T3

Crap, then it's just me indeed.

My ISP is screwed some more lately (IRC servers can't retrieve my hostname for example).

Wacko: You aren't the only one The day before yesterday I couldn't get onto the MBN for quite a long time and browsing was extremely slow. I thought it was because of the fact that it was a holiday here so everyone would be on the internet. Saudi internet isn't that slow

It's so weird, as every internet site is really flying, pings are great, download speeds are excellent... except this site.

Very weird.

Darkflame: that's because your ISP hasn't configured their DNS correct so that the caching part doesn't throw away all details about a host. I made some changes to my hostname yesterday, el-muerte.student.utwente.nl is no longer a CNAME but a A-record.

wacko: it's slow because apache tries to reverse your domain name, that will take a while when it doesn't work.
Code:
elmuerte@el-muerte:/home/www/log$ host -i 212.58.177.xxx
Nameserver not responding
221.177.58.xxx.in-addr.arpa PTR record not found, try again

i think it's been slow, but what bugs me is getting an avatar. right now i have posts in 13 different threads (not only one in each) and under members it says i only have 8 posts, so i can't get an avatar

hmm... not that it really matters cause i don't really like any of the 10-24 avatars anyways, but oh well... i like complaining

er... forgot to mention, it was stuck at 7 for a few days even though i've had more... it hasn't been at 8 for too long, i guess.

hmm... oops i forgot to ask: i thought i remembered reading something about certain posts counting as posts and not counting as posts... and... stuff.... explain?


nm, i just read a thread on that

later adds: WHAAA? The server is too busy?! WHAAA?

NickdeClaw: Basically offtopic posts don't add up to your post count. All other forums count.

My hostname works again now, but the forum is still slower than before (not just the front page).

Oh well.

wait... what'd i do?

hmm... i must be an idiot.

why are we talking about me being an idiot if i didn't do anything like that in this thread... oh you fixed it...

adds: i think the reason i'm an idiot is because i like to keep separate ideas in like... separate lines... hmm... in chat i always say something, then on a different line like... say something else and put a period... grr... it has something to do with the effect that it has on the person reading it, it makes it seem like a bigger pause.... blaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!
