    Well, that little 90 minute period you could not bring up the site was when we moved the physical server box a few miles. Hopefully it will be a good move, as the box now sits closer to the "core" of the internet.

    However, I'm giving it two strikes - you're out! If I have two problems that take extra time because there is not one of my representatives at the physical location....well, then I change ISP. But, after 10 years of good service, I'd rather not.

    Maybe it's just me, but today the site feels a bit sluggish on a fast cable connection. Posting a reply feels like I'm on a dialup account. It takes about 4-6 seconds to open the Post a Reply dialogue and about another 4-6 sec to post. Hopefully this just needs an easy tweak for the new locale.

    I'll check it out....probably delays due to have new IP and therefore new DNS - meaning the net is confused and has to pass around the info as to where the name "hearth.com" is.

    DNS may be the key. I am having about the same latency as BeGreen. We'll know in 24 hours or so when the names servers around the world get refreshed.

    I was going to mention the same thing. Hopefully it works itself out. I'm not this patient. :)

    Yes, it is slower - I'm told it is some settings - reverse DNS, which may be why it is slowest when you post back to the site. Hopefully, we will get things going better soon.

    I agree. I'm on a faster connection today than I was last night and things still feel quite a bit slower..........

    Yeah, all screwed up.....

    Since when can a move ever go right?

    It's up and running and no DNS problems any longer, but there are definitely problems. My ISP is asking me to bear with him - but I told him that given the time of year I can only do so for a reasonable length of time. I think he put a trouble ticket in with Broadcom and also is headed over to the place this afternoon.

    8:30 pm PST, the site feels much better. Quite snappy so far for browsing and opening the dialog for reply posting. But actually submitting the reply post is still somewhat slow. Edits on a post are much quicker. Hope that helps with the diagnostics.

    There are some problems with your DNS but most of it is MX mail records
    also some of the Delay of DNS lookups of the Move of the server could be because you do not have a Seprate server on a DIFFERNT network doing Secondary DNS services for your server when it was down.
    see a report here.

    I remember this: IT used to work this way. This connection was working like someone left the damper closed but seems to be open now early in the morning.

    Still a little slow submitting a post
