Title: Forums running Sllooowww?
Post by: Evan Kirkendall on January 10, 2011, 05:28:58 pm
Anyone else experiencing this? Takes a few seconds to load anything, and it's been that way for a few hours now. All my other web pages load as normal...

I noticed the same thing. But sometime I get a minute or more to get to a page-and I have a cable modem that usually just flys along. I thought it was because of the cold temp or the snow we got.

But it could be that the "powers that be" have slowed it down to try and drive people to the new site.  I have not checked that yet.

It would be interesting if that was the case. Rolling Eyes  Mad

Interesting, it just slowed down for me less than an hour ago, wonder if there is a difference due to location.

The new "LAB" site seemed to have decent load times, but the format totally blows.

Same here.... MB-Pro running Google Chrome... Cable modem cracking along...

The new forum loads instantly ...
My other macbook is streaming video flawlessly right now...
This forum is taking close to a minute to load anything at all. (with or without the other computer streaming).

Oh well...

The fact that all other sections of the PSW site respond in a short time and the "old" Forums take 1/2 to 1 minute to load a page makes me think the worst.

Took 65 second of waiting to load this page...  
I dont care how slow it is.  I'm sticking with these old forums until the bitter end, at which point I plan to 'Go down with the ship' if you know what I mean.  Real shame....

25 to 80 seconds per page here. That's old-school.
I think we should start fresh, just delete the internet, there's so much information and so little time...

EDIT:
posting this - Total time taken to generate the page: 0.01837 seconds

I think I have to agree with you there.  78.something seconds to load this thread, and I'm on a MBPro, Airport, ComCrap cable modem - everything else loads fine and quick, but the LAB is, well... painfully slow.  Reminds me a bit of the old live-audio.com days on dialup.

Resistance is futile.   Rolling Eyes

I hope it's just temporary growing pains... and not going down yet.  Not sure where we could go when this place "flatlines."  Twisted Evil  I wasn't around for a while because of some negative vibe and missed it enough to come back.  A Barking Dog has been gone for a year and the forums before that so that hangout is no more.  And so much info and exchanges here headed for a black hole.

If I had to guess, I'd say they've moved some of the servers over to the new forums.

it could be due to someone (or many people) data mining to preserve the posts..
or worse, they might be slowing it down intentionally to prevent exactly that.

who knows?

If I had to guess, I'd say they've moved some of the servers over to the new forums.

I would suggest that what's currently taking place on the LAB is intentional sabotage if not for Hanlon's Razor. The way the situation is being handled by the power's that be seem deliberately designed to piss money into the wind and destroy one of the biggest boons to the Pro Audio world in existence. After everything done to date, pulling servers off the existing useable forum and onto the new utter crap forums that are not at all ready to be populated is just icing on the cake.

I will say that I absolutely refuse to believe that the current site is not capable of monetizing enough funding to keep itself afloat, given the number of registered users and guests, and given that many other forums of similar size seem to do just fine making money while keeping their members happy. Obviously this forum has been poorly administrated for quite a long time, and now the new owners are doing their best to squeeze increased profits out by using inadequate free software and an inexperienced developer to create a cheaper-to-run forum. Add me to the list of people clearly stating: "You cannot monetize profit from this forum if there is no-one left here to create content!"

I will miss all my friends here, all the excellent information freely given, and all the great discussions. I won't be posting anything of value either here or on the new forums until the dust settles, if ever. And that will all depend on how the owners handle the remainder of the transition. Given what's been done to date, I'm not holding my breath. Friends can contact me via pm here or by email: pascal <at> knowaudio.com

If anyone manages to find a decent archive of the LAB online PLEASE let me know about it!

For what it's worth, the site started running quick again for a couple minutes and then it slowed back down again.

Terriblyyyyyy slow tonight, painfully slow.  Page loads are averaging 30 or more seconds to load.  Did a speedtest to check my connection and Im chugging along at full speed (30 over 25Mbps).

I wish I could get a connection that fast here. Are you on a commercial fiber or is this just residential?

Residential Verizon FiOS triple play, Internet package is 25/25 but when you get the TV service as well they give you about an extra 5Mbps (~30/25) of DL to compensate for VOD streams.

My office has the Verizon FiOS Business 35/35 triple play and usually get around 42/35 and I'm toying around with getting there new 150/65 package.  They only difference is the TV channel line up and pricing (priced per seating capacity at the time) and that I have a pool of static IP's.
