Well, here finally. It is quite slow compared to the other server. I click on a thread and wait, and wait.... then suddenly things happen.

I noticed a redirect on the old forum but it was only on one of the 3 addresses I tried. My bookmark has http://http://neo-source.com/index.php and this gives a 404.
http://neosource.1emulation.com/ gives an apache page, while finally http://http://neo-source.com/ actually says it will redirect, but doesn't... I had to click the offered link.

Anyway at least the forum is up again.

Also, looks like my avatar was lost.

Interesting, it's lightening fast for me (and has been since it went live). I click, and it's there instantly. And that's me in the UK, connecting to the server in the US.

gtMetrix also shows a page fully loaded time of 0.7 seconds.

I suspect the issue is yours alone, or the connection in general from Aus to the US.

pingdom allows testing from Melbourne. Page is fully rendered in 2.16 seconds and is faster than 67% of sites.

From Stockholm is 1.22 seconds (faster than 85%), and from New York is 0.5 seconds (faster than 97%).

It looks like your issue is your connection.

The redirects may need a bit of fixing, but this server is tons faster for me than the old one.  I havn't had a single latency problem since the move.

FWIW, it's noticeably faster here too.

Now it is working fine. *shrug*

I'll monitor it for a while and let you know how it goes.
