Loading times / problems on Agon ???

Have any of you had problems with Agon loading up very slowly / the server timing out / pages not available as of lately ? I have been noticing this for a while and sent an email to the "powers that be" at Agon. Their response is that they have not had any other comments about this, so they've never looked into it. I know that others have had problems as i've seen a comment or two about it in relatively recent threads.

As such, i've you've been having problems, please chime in and respond to this thread. The more info that you can provide for Agon, the more likely they are to be able to resolve this problem. If you could include the appr time of when you run into the most problems, what those problems are, etc ...

Personally, i run into problems between 10 AM and 1 PM CST and then again at 9 - 10 PM. Most of the time, i'll either have to wait a long period of time for the page to load up or i'll get a "this page is not available" notice. I know that this is not a problem on my end as i can go to a dozen other sites and they all load up just as fast as usual. This may be more apparent to those of you with high speed connections. I am typically connected at 1200 - 1600 Kbps, so a big drop in connection speed is easily noticed.

Anyone else experiencing problems, similar or not ? Sean
I am experiencing this problem right now (10:50 AM on 5/1). Very slow to load. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ...

It has been happening quite a bit, I thought it was just my machine.
Yes, I have experienced the same in the last week or so. Maybe just a residual effect of being the best audio site on the web?
Thanks for the feedback. We are still investigating yet without answers. Everything on our machines seems to working as designed, within their limits, even during the busiest times. Thus, it must be a network related problem, which can be very tricky to track down. We will continue to investigate.

It would be helpful if some of you folks experiencing slowness could tell us which of the following parts seem to be slow to load:

1) Home page
2) New Today
3) Discussion Forums
4) My Page

If you experience slowness again, it would also be helpful if you could go the following sites and tell us how their load time compares:

These are three other servers that we can monitor, that are geographically far apart.

We appreciate your continue help in tracking down this problem.
