Return of the long, long load and maybe a clue?

W98SE, IE5.5 & Mozilla 1.4 P3 866.

Last Thursday & Fri. (Mar 25 & 26th) approx. 1AM EST., the loading of the AV&SEC page (my usual enter page) was displaying much improved loading time < 40 seconds v/s upto 4 + minutes days previous ( same approx. time).

Tonight (Mar 28th) looooong loads returned with a vengence. Partial help by clicking "stop load" button but only partial page load. "Refresh" somewhat quicker.
Curious point: within 3 minutes of leaving page under IE, I returned via Moz.1.4 and load time was < 30 seconds excepting right side of page (where log in resides) which took additional 20 secs to load. Seemed to be a vertical break from left side of page where posts are listed. Hoping this isn't a red herring!

Thanks for Forum SEARCH engine!!! After 2 hours of back paging thru AV &S looking for a post I'd given up hope for this most valuable of uses of accumulated knowledge contained in the past posts!!! Makes this site a much more valuable resource for the world. Tell the bean counters that this entitles them to new "White Hats"!!! Happy

"White Hats"?.....

In reply to: Return of the long, long load and maybe a clue?

"White Hats" for the bean counters? As far as I'm concerned white hats belong to Lee Koo/Laura Roberts and as Lee has said,

"Notice the search is powered by Thunderstone and not by the forum software. That's because I had to go another route to get this search feature implemented. Thanks to the people at Thunderstone and Laura Roberts from our staff for all the help to make this happen!"

I would hope the 'Operations Department' Programmers/Engineers that handle the Community forums software will strive to find time (resources) to FIX this latest problem (crawling) and then look at finding time (resources) to generate a little resources with restoring ads, so that some of the "Wish List" items can be addressed, then get "White Hats". The only notable improvement I've noticed from them since this new forum software started 5 months ago is fixing 'message marking'.

Re: Perhaps a little loose with hat distribution & load update

In reply to: "White Hats"?.....

Hi, John. Good to hear from you! I am embarrassed Shocked to type that you're certainly right that the hats belong as you indicate but I'm assuming they have so many by now that they'll need to ship the excess somewhere and I thought we could, perhaps, embarrass the bean counters into being a little looser with the strings!
oh well, best laid plans...! Thanks again to Lee & Laura!

As of 1AM Tues. morn (29th) Entry via AV &S page loaded in 11 SECONDS FLAT! YAHOOOO!! Grin Thought something got straightened out but when came here to FEEDBACK took upwards of 1 minute . NOTE: Entry at AV & S not yet logged in. Log in performed between there and here. ???!! Oh well. Using IE this visit.
Still much improved from 4 + minutes! Keep at it please! Happy
