in thread Browsing PerlMonks with ...

No proxy and I have experienced the same problems with the same versions of the same browsers on different network connections at different physical locations, also not proxied. I've seen this using a 56k modem and a shared ISDN B-Channel.

The data is being transferred from www.perlmonks.com to the browsers but it is what happens afterwards that is causing the problem. I think. Good questions though. Keep them coming.

    I'd test it myself to identify it positively as a site problem with the browsers I have on-hand, but I don't know of any way of getting that amount of data from the site except by waiting a week or four without clicking the "I've seen all of these" button on Newest Nodes.

    If a proxy server was involved, and the proxy server was cutting you off at X bytes, it would be consistent with the messages/behavior you are seeing, which was why I asked. Some people do not realize they even have a proxy server set up, if it's transparent or automatically configured.

    Perhaps somebody else that has chosen to allow their Newest Nodes page to grow so large can offer to test...?

      Clear your flag and ask for the last week of new nodes. That'll give you enough data.

      For what it's worth, I've seen the same behavior at the four day mark, with Netscapee 4.76 (I think) on my Linux machine.
