Can anyone tell me if the server is in Toronto? If so, that could explain my problems here tonight. It's been taking almost 5 minutes for a forum, any forum, to open. Going through betterwhois, I found that we're on Tucows servers, which appear to be in Canada. And at the Internet Traffic Report, there are a couple of bad routers between me and there. I'm doing just fine going to other places on the net. (Well, as fine as Vista the Hog will let me.)
Have tried everything short of disconnecting and rebooting (emptying cache, deleting history, closing and reopening browser, etc). I'll try a new connection, but I can't reboot for a while until I can find the right time to stop an ongoing project that's running on my computer.
BTW, I forget how to do traceroute and pinging. Can anyone remind me or give me a link where I can read up on them?
