"defragging" and applied theory

runryder.com is hosted on a linux box.. and, whatever linux-compatible filesystem they're using doesn't get fragmented like fat16/32 does, so it doesn't need defragmentation.

And the second point.

It looks like poor runryder is hosted off an appliedtheory.com connection. Let me tell you a little about appliedtheory, for people who don't know. It was originally a backbone designed to connect schools and other non-profit organizations to the Internet for cheap, or almost free. Then one day, they decided to become a "real" backbone. As a direct result, their paths across the country are very fragmented from poor planning early on, and they're very slow at upgrading capacity. I've dealt with appliedtheory in southern california and upstate new york... the only people who use appliedtheory are those who can't afford someone better. Take a look at any relatively small ISP/server farm, and you'll notice some of them use appliedtheory.. any bigger place doesn't, for any reason.

Now let me say this, I love runryder and am perfectly fine with it using appliedtheory for its uplink, if it has to. You do what you need to in this world. But if you can switch to anything else, there would be a great improvement

Mark, my company uses aplus.net in San Diego. If you're in LA that might be better than where it is now, in case you ever need to go to the server

By the way,

Dan Parsons (irq), who I know personally, is an expert at this stuff. That's what he does for a living and people from across the country hire him to work on this stuff so I would listen to him.

Longest Signature in thisTopic Award

Envelope please..............the longest signature award is from.....................................................................Bladerunner

This is from the guy that said "Well, I think it's all those LONG signatures that causes pages to load slower!!"

Sounds hypocritical.....

He did email me and ask me not show what I'm flying and I'm sure he did that to several people, although I kinda liked that. Is it that much of a bandwidth issue? Is a few short lines of text compard to paragraphs or pictures big enough to slow things down? Thx for ur help with the site bladerunner " "

What are the first 3 blocks (not counting the line numbers )? Okay it's how long it took to connect in milliseconds but why 3 different times for the same ISP and how to read and interpret these? The last block is clear it's the ISP or hub it's going through.

The times are show how long it takes for a test packet to make the round trip to each router on the path between your computer and the RunRyder server. traceroute sends a number of packets, and reports the times for each packet.

The times are cumulative, so the bottom line shows the round trip time for the complete path.

As for cacheing ads, your browser may be going off to each ad server to check that the currently cached files are up to date. If the server (or the route between you and the server) is busy it may well take some time to receive a reply.

There's usually a setting for this, giving choices like "every time", "once a day", etc.

going off to each ad server to check

Right clicking the ads will show you that they are simple images like the RunRyder logo. There is not an ad server. Set your cache settings to "Automatic" (IE).

Signature?

Hey av8er, I see your point.......hehehe.....but, my signature is still only one line and dosen't contain all my "stuff",
It just seems that some people have a "need" to list everything in their signature????

I have listed my "stuff" where Mark asked everyone to list it....I'm a good boy you know!

I'm referring to those who have several lines listing everything they own; blades,engines,helis, dogs~cats..you get the picture,

BTW, I would like to thank you again ( and everyone else) for your help when I asked you for it.......if everyone would do that I think it would help.

Phil,
Thanks, I almost thought nobody cares about my question.
Let's go back to flying.
