    Is anyone else having problems getting to the site? I am ok until I hit the AT&T backbone. It does not appear to be time of day related. Could be 1 am or 1pm it is getting really bad? My ISP stops at #5 from there ATT takes over.

    I have not experienced any slow downs.... but, I have had others tell me they have had similar issues that you are having.

    Im guessings its some kind of backbone issue or maybe a router?

    I have emailed the host tech.

    Thanks

    Chuck:

    Let me know if you need anymore trace routes. This is getting bad on my side. Routine posts are taking 45-60 seconds to go through and pages seem like forever to load. I have a broadband connection that is pretty good, plus I used to work for the company that provides it so I am pretty sure it is not on thier end.

    Lemme know I an do traceroutes all day if they would like..

    Naaa this is not slow ... if you like to walk a lot.. click a link walk to get a drink, come back click to post get up and go to the bathroom. Help this is UGLY slow...

    yea... I am a trace route guy.. worked for & now consult in the internet arena..

    Chuck.. AT&T is killing us.. Tech support should be able to open a ticket with them but they are slower than molasses in the winter...look at hop 9-10-11 298 milliseconds is slower than can and string..I may be able to put some pressure on ATT from my end but I doubt it. Last hop is not helping any either that is on VBullitin.com.

    You know a LOT more about ping traces and what the data means!

    I thought AT&T was a MAJOR backbone? I wonder how many sites out there rely on them?
