    I have implemented a new system here and if I can afford it, I am going to use it...

    Here's how it works, Truckingboards uses one server to deliver all it's content, a very nice one that is quite pricey but needed, this server sits at a server farm in Texas, so people in Seattle may not get the speed that people in Texas do, .... well I have found a solution to optimize and speed the pages up for everyone... Why not have servers all over the country and why not make the user connect to the server closest to his city... Maybe even in his own city...

    Truckingboards is using this technology right now and as I said earlier it will be determined if I can afford it...

    Look at the Youtube below and see how it works plus I need your feedback, does this work better for you or can you not tell any difference?

    This past week I have been using my laptop, connect via wi-fi, to access truckingboards and noticed a big difference(faster) today then the last few days. Will be home tommorrow and will check it with my desktop, got brodband on that.

    It's really quick for me. I have no lagging issues whatsoever.

    I have shaved 2 seconds off the load time, and that makes me happy :)

    My home internet is so fast, it's hard for me to tell really.

    2 Seconds is huge in regards to load times. Nice Job!
    I have a fast internet also and crave more speed!

    I use a sprint air card or whatever you call it, its 3g don't have 4g in my area yet, I hate it because vids are slow but I have noticed the boards are faster, I thought it was because I moved my laptop, now I know the real story, so thank you, it is very much appreciated!

    Yea, I didn't want you to think I was talking about vids here, but vids linked here or if I go to youtube, its the nature of this slow POS, all that resides here is doing great, I used to load a page and go to scroll down and it would hang, or lag, now its pretty smooth, still does it some but thats on my end, if I had cable internet and I did until last fri, it would be super fast, but for what I have, what you have done has been great for me...its late, I'm rambling.

    it is faster here also.

    you say "if i can afford it" so if you don't mind me asking how much does it cost and is this something that has to be paid monthly, yearly, or is it a one time fee?

    i think i see a bake sale in trucking boards near future...... mmmmmm cookies :o

    Can't help on the dial up or slow net.
    I've got a fresh hot rod laptop and I didn't think these boards could load any faster, but they're almost instant now. Love it!
