Haphazard processing.

Haven't seen that, but as I stated in a forum "thread" earlier about the progress bar acting strangely, I've observed the completeness of page load by constantly pressing the key combination Ctrl+End as a page is rendered and it appears there is a possible situation that has to do with either recent changes to things that load at the bottom of the page.

Same problem here Mark. Heading loads, then its 1-3 minutes before messages load. Sometimes they never load. Other times it sails right in.

This slow down is puzzling our engineers--need help here

How often would you say this occurs during your forum visit?

Everytime you visit the forums?
Once every hour?

Hi Lee

How often would you say this occurs during your forum visit?

Everytime you visit the forums?
Once every hour?


Out of 10 times - I have 9 times only the "header" in the page and the rest is blanc. It already starts with logging in. It is all day ! I'm on cable and it sure takes a long time before the rest of page loads. Only one time out of 10 the page loads immediately.

Compare the speeds between these two
by James Denison / March 25, 2004 3:35 PM PST

Compare the download times of these two pages. Which one is fastest? Empty memory and drive cache first before timing each link to make it fair. You can check the html in View Source and see the differences. Run both pages thru the validator at http://validator.w3.org/ and see what the results are. You may have to manually set it for HTML 4.01 Transitional and character set ISO 8859-1.
The pages were the same content at the time I originally did this.

Just noticed a similar anomaly loading FB, 11:15am CMT.
by Cursorcowboy / March 26, 2004 1:20 AM PST

All morning, since about 06:00am, the page rendering -- whether any forum or a thread opened in a new window, still displays haphazardly; some pop right up, others seem to hang for several seconds, 10-20. I still see the hangs using the key combinations Ctrl+End - happening more so from those items loading at the bottom of the page(s) - some pop right in, others drag but they're so fast, can't tell. I'm not sure whether something is in effect on my Win98FE/MSIEv5.02SP1 that causes the delays but it would appear that if there was, the anomaly would happen only once and not repetitiously while at the same forum. I cannot concern a given pattern whatsoever.

The only other anomaly that has started is the login. Sometimes, the username and password window pops up and other times the entire registration window itself.

Hi, Lee.

I use Netscape, and I rarely if ever see this behavior. The only time I see unexpected slows is ocassionally when previewing a message during the posting process; stopping, refreshing, and previewing again almost always fixes the problem. So maybe it's somehow MSIE-specific?

Re:Engineers are getting together to see what possiblities there are...

I logged on at approximately 06:00a.m. CMT and it's now 7:20. I progressed from the forums Help, Newbies, IE, and now at Win95/98.

I haven't seen the forum acting so haphazardly in displaying a page -- either the main forum or opening a message in a new window.

Using Win98FE, MSIE v5.01SP2, cable. The TIF and extraneous Cookies was purged yesterday.

Similiar experience here with partial page loading with long waits for completion. Like you I cleaned my system last night of TIF and cookies.

Slow as molasses!

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
