Are there Server problems with the Pentaxuser Site??

I know we have slow line speeds around here, but that can’t explain the now frequent problems I am getting using the site.
I had thought I should include a Poll with this Thread, but thought that was probably OTT.
The sort of thing that happening is:
a) Suddenly getting ‘Page Cannot be Displayed’, when I have been browsing ‘Recent Activity’.
b) Moving from one Topic to another and the Site ‘hangs’ ie the little wheel just keeps going round and round.
c) Clicking on a Notification email where the page comes up to say it’s being reset – then nothing happens.
I know the Mods will probably say I should PM them, but if it’s an experience had by others, it would be good to know.
Frankly it’s beginning to p*** me off.

I'm experiencing none of the problems you describe, so maybe it's a local internet issue or an ISP issue. These things do happen from time to time. Sometimes downloading Windows Updates can cause slow running.

You could also try rebooting your router.

Hi - John, I often reboot the Router but the key thing is that I don't have these problems with all the other Sites I use - only Pentaxuser. redbusa99, luckily I am not with AOL

No issues for me at all, the problem doesn't lie with the site. However, I did have issues previously and traced them to my virus checker (Bullguard) which wasn't fully Windows 8 compatible and required an update patch to fix the problem. Since then, everything runs very fast.

I also have a lot of problems as experienced with the OP lately.

It started when my local internet provider was finally able to supply me with a high speed connection.

When at work, I have no problems.

I get similar probles from time to time, also find that it logs me out for no reason I can understand. That said, I'm on XP and IE8 and most sites blame that.

Droop – I could be uncharitable and say most Sites will blame something other than the Site But seeing this Thread has been up a while without thousands of responses, it looks as if the problem lies my end (probably something to do with my deodorant )
BUT it would be good to get a Computer Techo to give some input – if any are interested

why not report the problem. There is a button at the bottom of this page. I have done this a couple of times for other issues and found the PU backroom techy team to be really helpful.

Davem – as I said in my OP, I wanted to find out if others have had similar experiences. Anyway by now I would have thought (apart from John) some backroom person would have entered the Thread?

There's probably no particular backroom issue here ISO, just the route your internet is taking to connect to PU.

If I get problems I usually reboot the router. If that fails, rebooting the PC might help.

If the problem persists, then it's best to file a report.
Best regards, John

John, I am going to try an alternative route by using Firefox rather than IE8, to see if that makes a difference. My ISP is more commercially oriented than your average, so think they cover most of the items you mentioned.

IE8 could well be your problem, it could do with updating by now probably. Firefox should be fine.
Best regards, John
