Hi all, just wondering if anyone else was experiencing the same issue that I have been with the GZ website...

There seems to be a number of times that the images on each page are showing as broken and it appears to be happening more and more frequently. Often refreshing the page straight away doesn't fix the issue either, I generally wait a while and come back to the site and things are back as they should be.

I was just wondering if maybe something has changed in recent times for this to be happening as I haven't had any troubles with this site in the past!

That hapens to me also. I usually just refresh the page or open a new window and that seems to solve the problem, but as you say it's happening more and more.

Yes, something did change on the 25 October 2006: New Zealand ISPs unleashed their "maximun" speed plans without providing sufficient bandwidth to cope with the demand of everybody in the country using the Internet.

Geekzone uses a U.S.-based server to store images. The reason for that is because it's already bad enough for our content to cross the Pacific ocean to reach the American shores, and data traffic in New Zealand is at an all time high cost for us.

So, in effect when trying to reach our image server you reach these problems.

Filthy full speed DSL. I knew it would be to blame somewhere along the line... Wink

If only we could go back to a broadband environment of about 6 months ago
