None of the other sites were.
It is better now than it was this past weekend.

run a traceroute from your computer to this site

Check the ip with the longer latency

run a whois on that ip

email the admin (it should appear somewhere in the whois reply)

That site should do it ;) http://www.dnsstuff.com/

Or you can call your internet provider to ask them to do all that, Enjoy :)

^ lol

Call the guys that send you your internet bills and tell them that this site is slow (when it is) and ask them to show you who's fault it is (99% of the time they'll tell you it's not them without telling you who's responsible, you got to insist, politely)

Or, we can conclude that if all other sites are running normally, and the computer is running normally, then the site/host is having a problem. Eh?

Possible.. but not necessarily 100% failproof.

I don't want to get in too much details ;) But picture a web (after all, the name comes from somewhere) it might be that when you are asking for a certain site, your Internet Service Provider (ISP) servers are sending you on the long way or through the rush hour traffic to get your info..

The traceroute (tracert) is a tool used to know where your information is going once you put in a request (do a search, ask for a web page, refresh the current page you're on, etc..). That tool tells you every location (IP address) you went through to get to your final destination and how long it took to get there (in miliseconds)

By tracking the path and the times to get there, you can pinpoint where is it taking longer and thus know where we can improve. <= that's the part where you get in touch with the guy responsible for the router, and to find who it is, you use the whois command ;)

Sorry, I couldn't resist, it's the 2nd level internet tech support guy in me talking. anyhoo, shift is over now, gotta jet :)

I know that sometimes when a site is slow to load up I hit the red "X" (stop), then just re-enter and most the time it finds/loads real fast. I figured is was some routing thing. But when one site is continuously slow while all the others are fine (using IE and FireFox) then it's the site.

Yes?
