iDisk is really slow
Is iDisk really (almost unusably) slow for anyone other than me? I know it shouldn't be as fast as a local disk, but when I have to wait 1-2 minutes for a window to open and another 5 for its icons to appear, I have to think something's wrong. Any ideas? Could it be my system configuration somehow?

I'm having a similar problem on an iMac 350 on a cable modem ( says 1.124M/sec -- -- to prove it) with 9.0.4. It takes forever to open windows and the enclosed icons, let alone UPLOAD or DOWNLOAD anything...
I wonder what the problem is?

Yeah... I'm on an iMac DVSE w/192 megs of RAM and 9.0.4 plus a cable connection that I've clocked at 230k/s at times. In every review of iDisk that I've read, this never seems to be an issue. I like it because of the auto-HTML I can do to make simple photo albums, but at the speeds it's running right now, I almost have time to code it by hand myself.

Same here. I'm on a PowerBook Wallstreet model, OS 9.0.4, and DSL. According to my throughput is 340k, yet there's an annoying pause to open folders in any iDisk, download from one, etc. Gotta be the server. Everything else on the net flies. This iDisk stuff just crawls.
