Hi,
Since last night I've been having trouble downloading Dead shows. It usually takes me about 2-4 hrs and now it comes up around 44 hours for one show. Also the site pages are very slow in loading. I even tried a friend's computer with the same results. Is there any info about this?
Thanks

My downloads are faster than ever. I can dl a whole set in under 5 minutes. Each song takes between a minute or two to dl. I have cable connection, and the speed of the dl's increased dramatically in the last week. Thanks archive!!

There are no outages that I'm currently aware of, and the site's loading fine for me - in fact, I just tried downloading a test file and got 500k/sec, since the European mirror is taking a lot of strain off the main US filebase. YMMV, though!

Thanks,
Simon.

Thanks for the reply. Now I got "Server Timeout" and aborted my download.

If you are still experiencing this, can you please list a couple of links to the shows?

It's possible that there is other internet weather causing slowness between the Archive and your ISP/your section of the country, but that should be transient.

Hopefully things are running fine again, but please let us know specific shows so we can narrow it down a bit.

Thanks.

Thanks for the help. Yes, I am still experiencing difficulties. Even just navigating the site, it's soooo slow. I've been downloading for weeks with never a problem. Now when I connect I'm usually downloading at about 7 Kb/s (I have DSL) and then eventually I get server timeout.
Here are two shows I was trying to download:

Server: audio27.archive.org
Directory: /1/audio/gd87-05-10.sbd.schneiderman.2256.sbeok.shnf

and
Server: audio22.archive.org
Directory: /2/audio/gd78-11-24.sbd.prefm.13948.sbefail.shnf

Thanks for any help you can provide!
