    I can get on ok in the mornings.. reasonably fast. I can access any number of sites.... I use atari, firefox and also chrome.


    As the day goes on the MHF site loads more slowly and in the end I cannot get on.... all the other sites remain the same speed all day long.

    I clear my history and cache every day.

    I use a Apple MacBook Pro.

    Only thing different is I used a midi at Malvern and it has not been the same since.


    any idea's?????

    I've come across this before, I think it's called the carping virus. It monitors all the words a computer produces, it counts the negatives and starts slowing everything down when a threshold is reached. Try posting happy positive stuff without a single negative and see if it fixes it. :Smile: :Wink:

    Does this apply to all sites? One of the issues to do with slowing of connection is called "contention". ISP's share connections with a number of users - typically 40 - 50 on the basis that not all will be on the internet at the same time. See here. Which may well be the case during the day, but of course evening time is a peak time. With more and more people streaming TV and films over the internet this congestion will be getting worse. May I suggest you contact your ISP and let them know you are unhappy with this if that is the case?

    it fine before Malvern

    Brain, it has always been fine... considering I have been running mac's for nearly 2 years now... it started after I got back from Malvern...

    You can be posting Ok one moment then suddenly it goes very very slow and almost impossible to load a page.

    But all the other sites I use..like banking, ebay and dozens of others are all OK all the time.

    Just winding up Apple users.

    FUN does have problems. Always has. It will hang loading a page, I can load another instance of FUN and it loads the page immediately. It seems to me something like a page request gets parked in a very long queue or maybe part of the request goes missing. Depending on browser setting this could give a time out error or just sit there with a activity indicator going round in circles for ever.

    I usually use the back key then request again and then instant.

    This is a low budget forum due to the skinflints who will not pay a miserable £10 so I guess, and it is a guess, Jim can't afford to throw the necessary money at the servers to cure the problem.

    Anyway, for a bunch of Olde Fartes having a leisurely chat it's just fine.

    I want it noted that I do not consider myself an 'Old Farte'. I find that offensive and under rule one I want you all banned.

    I consider you all to be old fartes, ShiftZZ, Old Mo, Hildweller, Munchie, Sundance, Toffo, Salopian, Johns Cross, Snowbird, chrisgreen, Sloboderbobber, Wildman and even Buttons to mention a few.

    Popeye, papajohn, johnp10, Jim, treacle, fidget, southampton,Carol, Gez eddieoutofstockvanbitz and lots of others are all still young at heart and not to be confused with Old Fartes........:Tongue1:

    I am old but not a farte's

    I also object... I may be old but the only farte's in my RV is Ezzie... boy can she let them rip.

    I have to disagree with who you have put in the B list... treacle and Eddieoutofstockvanbitz are all old....:RollEyes:

    Windows® Vista®


    1. Open the Start menu.
    2. Go to Run.
      • If you do not see the Run command in Vista, search for "run" in the Search bar.
    3. In the Run text box, type: ipconfig /flushdns
    4. Press Enter or Return, and your cache will be flushed.

    MacOS®


    1. Go to Applications.
    2. Go to Utilities.
    3. Open the Terminal application.
    4. Type: dscacheutil -flushcache
    5. Press Enter or Return, and your cache will be flushed.


    this will cure loads of browser issues including page not foud or slow replies and loading... occasionally you need to do it twice to be sure
