Speed of the forum. Maybe a solution?
I don't know, how about you guys, but last weeks the forum speed was terrible for me...
There were some threads, about it before, but i think this could be a soultion. However, it could also be just a coincidence.
So I think, that the problem is not directly in the forum, but in the DNS resolution of it's internet name.
So what i did today?
There is a file in "C:\WINNT\system32\drivers\etc" (on w2k - maybe different on XP) called "hosts".
you can assign names to IP addresses there, so the system will not query DNS server for the IP address. UNIX/linux guys know, what i'm talking about..
so I added these two entries there:
And the forum is now faster than FAST...
However, as I said, it could be just a coincidence and someone finally fixed the forum's webserver or something else.
