Well you could be getting slow download speeds because you could have tons of crap on your computer. For example if you have tons of folders on your desktop that arent short cuts they are real folders with items in them like 18.1 mbs I have of music and that slow my computer way down. Or if you haven't cleaned your computer of spyware, viriuses and what not that will GREATLY effect your computer. My mother broad broke because i didn't take well enough care of my computer until it was too late. So I would fix your computer of spyware viriuses go to Start>Run>msnconfig press Enter and check all the crap you have running and you can shut some of it down on the start up.

So clean your computer
Clean up the desktop
change what you have on start up (requires basic computer knowledge)

After all of that and your computer is still going very slow then it is your connect.

If you are too lazy to deal with the desktop just get more RAM lol.


Thanks for the kind help smile.gif , but I am Microsoft and Cisco certified so I know just a little about IT and networking wink.gif

Nope, it wasn't updated at that point smile.gif
I also noticed that it was alot quicker for a while, but after that it got real slow again...


...BUT NO MORE - the new server is now up and running! biggrin.gif
I'm currently adding countries to the list of countries that should be redirected to the new server. When your country has been added you will see that you are using www2.guitarmasterclass.net instead of the usual www (this is for europeans only at this stage, we might add Asia etc later if it seems to be a faster solution for these countries as well).

Anyway, I'm adding nations now. If you don't get sent to www2 by tomorrow, give me a shout and I'll fix it smile.gif

Yes, it is, or rather in the Netherlands actually. But anything within europe is almost as good as in your own country for anyone in europe smile.gif

Those of you who aren't getting more than 100 kbytes/sec - what speed do you get when downloading this video from the current gmc server?

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...post&id=121


Woohoo - > 1500KBytes/sec (need a bigger file to test with though as it did it in about 5 seconds!)

Guess I'll be sticking with the old server then!

I think I'll set up a special server just for you. I've got an old Mac Plus (external 20MB hard drive, I think I can fit one whole lesson on it) and a 14.4kbps modem lying around somewhere. I'll hook that up and send you a link to my "brand new" gmc server, alright? wink.gif

I mean, having that great bandwidth HAS to be punished, right? ph34r.gif

Good idea - we should make a special vintage guitar lesson and put it there. biggrin.gif

It's very, very rewarding to see that some of you who had problems have now got a fast connection... biggrin.gif

Can we get some more feedback from people noticing a difference? (good or bad!)

Yes, with old 78 record sound quality - but, you have to promise to dress up in a 40s style DJ and haircut, and dance in an old fashioned way, with an acoustic guitar and soapbar pckup smile.gif

It really is great to have a new server. It was getting to the point where it was a chore to watch a video or even play a gmc backing track tongue.gif
