There's definitely a difference. For a while there, anything over 400kb was giving me a hard time. And before anyone asks, YES, I do have a cable modem, and it is usually pretty quick. Now, even the files over a meg are doing just fine. And Tom actually has responded quite a few times in the past. He's a busy guy. Hey, he has the whole site to watch over (wow....sounds so.......majestic).

I noticed that the movies loaded up faster than before, but not much. I still get those errors about the server under stress. It's better than before (hence faster load times on the movies) :)
By the way, think it's about time to change the poll? It's been up since the new layout was uploaded.

Nice! Newgrounds rox! Not like that flashradium shit. My friend and I made a project on flash for school (walden pond) and we put it on NG cuz we needed 2 access it from web at school but our school blocked newgrounds cause 2 many kids played it while they were supposed to be doing homework in the library. lol! so we put it on flashradium and the day we had 2 present that damn site didnt even come up cause it sux and we were like DAMN THE SCHOOL FOR BLOCKING NEWGROUNDS!!!!!

Battle Royale? You finally got around to seeing that movie... My brother showed it to me long ago, I passed along the movie to a few friends... and I hope to go over to a friend's house Friday to show it to her. (Horror movies turn chicks on, don't they?)

Well new grounds has always run sweetly for me apart from in peek time but I never usualy hit peek time as I live in a differant part of the world to you Americans =P so while theres millions of you on here I'm asleep and while theres you lot asleep I'm the only one on here messing around. Yep life is good but the new server should hopefully leave it with less lag as possible if ever I stayed up to try. Tom Fulp, you're doing a good job and this is best site I've ever seen thats not hosted by a big Masterbates company =) (masterbates would be big eared bill for you not to bright sprites over there) *waves*

We haven't gotten our bandwidth tracking on-line for the new source, so I can't say if we are maxing it out already. I can't wait to find out, though! On Sunday we served out over 1.9 million Portal views. Two million is right around the corner!

I already gave my comment for this section in the above. You're doing amaizing to hit such a high standard. You must be the envy of the web Mr. Fulp!

In other news, has anyone here seen Battle Royal? I finally got an import on DVD, and it rocks. :)

And I cant say I have but its currently in production on my computer. Shall be done in 6hours by the looks of things and then I can post my comment =)

I have no problem with the advertising on this site. I've got Mozilla to stop all the popups, so that's not a problem and the ads load pretty quick. At least it's not an AOL site. Their damn ar.atwola.com (AOL Time Warner On Line Advertising) makes adultswim.com and winamp.com almost impossible to access. The friggin advertising never loads!

no, thats a bad idea, bad evens the balance of good, plus blam points only show that you waste peoples work, yes, that stuff does deserve blamming, but once its protected, its protected.

No, if anything it's been worse for me recently since the upgrade, a lot more "contact admin" error messages, and now movies not loading.

In other news, has anyone here seen Battle Royal? I finally got an import on DVD, and it rocks. :)

Yeah, I saw it in the cinema when it first came out, and indeed it does rock. Was going to buy the DVD today but didn't want to spend £20 on it :-(

You bet I did notice some improvements on that 300mbps thingy man ! It's like, before, I couldn't even watch a movie by night (my time), but now, it's like if it was in the day (once again, my time)...
I mean...
Good job there man !

Yes, that movie is incredible. If you liked that, you really should get "Ichi the Killer" by Takashi Miike. It's quite a bit more violent, but as with much Miike, there are many many layers to the film and he has a lot to say.
