Glad I use Opera.

Page loading slowly? Press "g" and turn off the graphics. Page pops up.

I use Opera too and even if I turn the graphics off it still takes 20+ seconds to load a page for the last 3+ days. I'm on 1.5Mbps DSL and this is insane. Something is very wrong and needs to be addressed.

This site has been in extreme slow motion since last week end. I'm going to have to find another shooting forum.

Whew, thought I was the only one noticing this.:)
I have the same problem both at home and work, Linux and Windoze, and browsers don't make a difference.

Relax folks. There's obviously a problem, I'm sure Oleg knows about it. It very well may be related to the tornado damage in that part of the country.

I'm sure this is temporary.

It appears to have started Tuesday between 2pm and 3pm EDT. It's the same thing that happened for a while back in January. It'll get fixed, it might take more than a day or two, though, because we don't know what's wrong.

HEY! What do you know!

Nothing like 16 minutes to get the window to allow the posting of a message.

I never have been able to get a window to edit one of my posts.

Sigh.

Well, for now it's slower but more reliable than it was for the latter half of the work-week. Hope ya'll find this tolerable until it really gets fixed.

I've been noticing this slowness too over the last few days. Sometimes the pages don't load at all.

However, if you stop the load and try again it seems to come up fast after a new try or two.

Ready to put a real database in the backend of this thing? :evil:

Ready to put a real database in the backend of this thing?Sure. Go ahead and purchase DB2 and a good box to run it on -- I'll PM you my address. :evil:

Last night wasn't a database problem. Besides, it's hard to complain about MySQL's ability to cache queries -- 45% of the queries we see here are answered immediately from the cache. Pretty friggin' kewl, doodz.
