5025Re: problems with geocities
- Nov 2, 2003Hi Teresa, and all of you who have already replied to her message,
The first time I tried to access Aiden's Geocities page at
http://www.geocities.com/tesol_evonline/2004sessions/ was on Thursday
afternoon, and I had problems similar to what you describe in your
message below. I just tried again and the page opened in less than a
second. But it is Sunday morning right now. The bandwidth-thieves on
the other side of the Atlantic (my fellow Americans) are still
sleeping soundly, and Sunday is probably a low-traffic day anyway as
compared to Monday through Thursday/Friday.
I think that explains the problem quite simply. I don't think it is
specific to Portugal. Geocities and other huge sites are simply more
sensitive to bandwidth issues than low-traffic sites, imho.
