How fast is BMT?

Hey guys,

With the recent hardware changes mentioned in the changelog, I wanted to put up a quick poll to see what everyone thinks of the forum speed.

I noticed that with IE and Firefox, it is hard to see the speed improvement. But with Chrome, it really shows off how fast the site is.

Please vote and discuss, I appreciate your feedback.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Please...

more specific details.
As I can not measure loading times myself - I am looking on some platforms that may
show realtime results.
I fetched Alexa.com to see the actual mean load time. This is shown in the pic underneath.
Of course we do not know the time interval of measurment nor do we know if the last
calculation is from the NEW or the old servers. So I am only posting this pic for historic
reason - that one we can see today.
We might come back to the same measuring site in 2 weeks to see a development?

Anyway THANKs BigMike for the ongoing improvements - highly appreciated!

I completely subscribe to that, even with IE10 the site is pretty much faster than before.

Site is 'Pretty Fast' now for me, thanks Mike.

But still got same annoying problem with webinar replays repeatably skipping back several seconds or more on their own accord and making long webinars even loonngggerr. Very frustrating. I can download videos from YouTube when posted there and increase playback speed (except for Linda!) which is great. But Elite only videos on site are so troublesome I often give up.

And as noted on other thread somewhere, this happens on Firefox and Chrome.

Hope you can find solution, as I thought you said upgrade would address this issue.

Google's tracking. You can tell when the new servers were brought online:
