    Hi,

    Over the past several weeks I've noticed the QRZ website response time become very slow taking a number of seconds for pages to update or going to a link after clicking on it. What's going on?

    Tnx,

    Mike

    Probably nothing. There are periodic maintenance periods where things slow down but not terribly often and for very long. Many things to check on your end. At least once a week you should shutdown your modem/router for about 30 seconds. They have small brains that need to be cleansed and refreshed now and again. You may also want to reboot your browser and actually your whole machine every week. FWIW QRZ is optimized for use with Google Chrome. Other browsers are fine, but you will get the total experience using Chrome.

    You also may want to clear the browser cache, history and cookies then restart the browser. When I have trouble it is most always my internet connection.

    I have noticed a slow down of the internet lately. It is not just QRZ.

    It seems that Win 10 gets affected by Russian hackers the most. :rolleyes:

    Cloud attacks are being tested, and seem to be working. o_O

    Have Fun Everyone.

    Definitely something is wrong somewhere, It just took me a half hour to login.

    Now finally able to post the screen shots. I still think it is just my connection giving me trouble, but I am not sure.

    I too have noticed long loading times of the QRZ page. I check side by side with other websites and it's definitely noticeable. Manageable, but noticeable.

    I just checked the Main page, And it is hosed with Podcast and Video links. :eek:

    Bad idea in my opinion. 1 bad link and hose city. But I rarely go there, Or do click bait.
