I think I stumbled on a way to speed up ATS/BTS for Dial-up 56k

I am/was thinking about 4hrs ago, 'the ATS board refresh is really slow'!! tonight.
Anyhoo, I log-in to BTS and now ATS & BTS are as fast as lightning.
My pootas Kung-fu fighting...

Seriously, I just checked my conn' speed (45333bps) and after i did the
above the board is much faster.

Cool. It's the same for me. It isnt THAT slow anymore. It's slow probably because we've go to many visitors.

Good point AD5673.
If a member logs-on with dial-up, login both ATS and then BTS at the same time. It works for me.
Twice as fast...as a Snail towing a caravan.

But, my theory does work for Dial-up 56k

That's eeeuuummm.... weird. Being a techy guy, and I'm trying to find a logical reason why it would be faster, but can't think of anything.

Aaaaah the days of dial-up.... Can't really say I miss 'em lol...

I'm no geek myself - far from it - but wouldn't logging in make rge pages serve up faster due to cookis being enabled?

BTW - in the ATS store [on LHS of "My ATS" ], you can spend 50 points to enable low bandwidth access. What does that mean?

I can't get hi-speed conn', because I live in the bush. But I have a fast poota',
and when i log 2 both ATS/BTS it's faster. I reckon it saves the the servers some 'crunching'.

Low-bandwithd mode turns off most of the bells and whistles (avatars, pictures, background colors, etc..)

I think he meant loggin in BOTH ATS & BTS, instead of simply ATS.
