SegPub outdoes themselves on #fail


Six minutes to download a page?

SegPub really outdid themselves this evening; my sites were (and still are) on average taking six minutes to load, and that was only when their domains decided to resolve at all.

I give up SegPub, I'm moving. You don't answer your support tickets, messages I send to your mailing lists are rejected and your service is getting laughably bad. My GeoCities page on dialup was faster.

I'm just glad I don't have any assignments for the next few weeks. SegPub have already cost me one high distinction when a demo site failed to load and I was failed for that part of it. Thanks guys :(
