BF, instead of using Microsoft Internet Explorer as my web browser, I switched to Mozilla Firefox, another web browser, the speed is back to normal. I do not understand what the others are talking about. Just download Mozilla Firefox.

p.s. Remove space from "w w w" above. I'm still too noob to be allowed to post anything that looks like URL.
Can't you just hack the site and take it out for us?

Sorry, white hat here. :-)

IMO, a good short-term solution for non-technical users would be to use Firefox, as it's reported to work well with this widget.

Long-term, getting a fix from the developers for the problem (I'll volunteer to beta-test/debug, if that will help), or just remove it if it's not worth the effort.

Some detail for the admins

(This isn't anything that will help an end user, but perhaps might help the admin(s) get to the bottom of this.)

Specifically, the biggest lag is in the retrieval of a customized Javascript ****** called "widget-remote-******.js" which is retrieved with every page. Here's a retrieval for that file, which, you can see in this case, took about 34 seconds.

jmike@sigh % time wget http://www.youchoose.net/widgets/wid...mote-******.js
--2008-06-01 23:30:54-- http://www.youchoose.net/widgets/wid...mote-******.js
Resolving www.youchoose.net... 76.12.118.35
Connecting to www.youchoose.net|76.12.118.35|:80... connected.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 200 OK
Length: unspecified [text/javascript]
Saving to: `widget-remote-******.js.1'

[ <=> ] 37,303 --.-K/s in 0.03s

2008-06-01 23:31:29 (1.06 MB/s) - `widget-remote-******.js.1' saved [37303]


real 0m34.421s
user 0m0.005s
sys 0m0.010s


Also, the time taken to perform this was almost entirely after the resolution of the host name, so it wouldn't appear to be a DNS problem:

jmike@sigh % time host www.youchoose.net
www.youchoose.net has address 76.12.118.35

real 0m0.014s
user 0m0.002s
sys 0m0.005s


In case there was any doubt, yes, I'm a big ol' nerd.

Please ping me directly if I can help in any way.

For those who want to apply justmike's excellent fix and want instructions that are more spelled out (though this might still be hard for some):

Goal: Add a line to a file called "hosts" on your computer. The file is called simply "hosts" with no extension.

1. Find the file. On the Mac: justmike says it's in a folder called "etc". On Windows: go to the folder C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc. You may need to choose "Show hidden files and folders" in the Folder Options menus to see this. OR on Mac or Windows, search for the file (Windows: ignore the hosts file in the I386 folder--that's not it).

2. Open "hosts" in a text editor. Sorry, Macs, I don't know what yours is called, but I bet if you doubleclick on the file the Mac will open it. Windows: use Notepad by doubleclicking on the file and choosing Notepad from the list.

3. Go down to a line below all the lines that begin with "#". Type this in starting at the left:

127.0.0.1 w w w.youchoose.net

Don't put the spaces between "w w w"--I had to put those there so it wouldn't get turned into a link here. You do need at least one space between127.0.0.1 and www.

4. Save the file.

5. Restart your machine (I believe Windows requires this--don't know about the Mac.

That's it.

Tom

Much improved here too

Much better, and the widget-remote-******.js file that was taking > 30 seconds to load last night is now loading in ~2 seconds.
