My internet seem to be really slow (almost dial-up speeds) but ONLY when I'm on UG. On any other site it acts like how a cable connection should be. Does anyone know what might be the reason for this? I'm using Firefox 2.0 if that helps.

Yeah, I'm having the same problem, I think it started when they were adding new servers earlier.

Ah ok, hadn't thought about that. No problem then. I'm just glad it isn't my internet. Thanks.

that must be why there are not a lot of people online. forums seem empty.

Nyah. Haha. It is EVIL, it is so EVIL. It is a bad, bad plan, which will hurt many... people... who are good. I think it's great that it's so bad.

"I will kill him. I will kill him dead. With like a rock... or a stone... or something." I had 2 cups of coffee and im hyped up on caffeine listening to Primus at 12:30 in the morning lol...

So back onto UG news... word on the street is that we hired an attorney to face the MPA! Although no official news as of yet...

Anyone still have this problem? It may have to do something with the fact that the servers are located in Europe now, and not in US.

Further precautions from the RIAA/MPA?

Much faster actually.

I know cos I used to have Fasterfox that the View Forum Leaders page used to take 12-16 seconds to load.

Now it's about 5 :D

Not right now but Id noticed over the past week Ug would just stop loading pages and be taking forever, but it was sporadic, and I havent experienced the problems since the servers were updated.

there should be much less downtimes from now on... we've added an extra server for forums, plus all servers have been upgraded too.
