GA Site - Initial Connection Slow

    When I fist connect to the site, it takes anywhere from 30 to 90 seconds for the initial page to load...sometime longer. Once I make that initial connection, then she flies like normal. However, if I hit my back button and navigate back to the initial page, I get the same slow load.

    The tracert isn't showing any major problems, however; while watching the tracert, hops 8, 9, and 10 took forever to appear....roughly a minute. Is this still due to sharing hosting with Leon's brother?

    What page are you initially hitting? I know the portal has issues loading quickly and it's on my list of things to investigate. However, the forums should pop right up.

    Yep, it's the portal. That explains it.
    I'll just change my bookmark. ;)

    For whatever it's worth, this problem has reared its ugly head again.

    Dunno. Not seeing anything here.

    Yeah, I don't think anyone ever saw it before either. Don't know what to say either. But it's definitely back.

    I too had some slowness accessing GA in the approx. 4 hour period preceding this post. (A few times a topic wouldn't open, timeout.) Although I've been having some connectivity problems I decided the slow GA response was due to Internet traffic, transient routing problems or perhaps heavy traffic on GA's server (doubtful). It's working fine now.
