    Default peak times

    I quote from the sticky in this forum:
    Here is a tip that can help you (courtesy of 98abaile): If you are getting slow speeds, you are probably downloading at a peak time (nothing slows down a server quite like 82000 people all trying to access at once), so change the time at which you download. If that doesn't solve your problem, run a virus and spyware scan.
    How can I know when the peak times are? is there a usage graph from the servers or something like that?

    The reason I ask is because I've got diverse speeds (from crawling less than 1kb/sec to hunderds of kb/sec) in my time downloading manga here, so I decided to ask.

    I guess the difference of speed i saw could be due to the different mirrors, but I am still curious about my question.

    If it matters to anyone:

    1. The Mirror # all of them, I guess
    2. Your OS winXP, win2000, various flavors of GNU/linux (now ubuntu dapper)
    3. The browser you are using Opera, Konqueror
    4. Have you tested on a different browser? the two avobe
    5. Have you read our FAQ problem or searched our forum? yes and yes
    6. Are you using a download manager? no, just the built-in ones from the browsers
    7. The file/series you are downloading from. right now only shaman king and tenjo tenge, others in the past
    8. The EXACT problem! "Help can't download!" does not do anything for us. Give us details. (above this list)
    9. Have you tried right clicking the file and pressing "save target as"? I did, it works fine =)

    What speeds do you get from each mirror?

    Mirror 1, I would assume 8kb/s and Mirror 2 would probably be closer to 30kb/s.

    currently mirror 2, around 30 kb/sec. but sometimes the download speed drops near zero kb/sec.

    peak times are USA times since majority of the users are from the States.

    So.. if you try and download 8am - 3pm USA time, it'd be pretty good speeds cause kids are in school.
