Sailnet way Slooooooooow

Technical issues? It's taking 30 seconds or more to get a response on any action.

youchoose?

Using Safari (on a Mac) I can see the network timeline for a page. Using that I found that it was (IIRC), a javascript loaded from w w w.youchoose.net, I think for the new little petition window at the bottom.

Anyway, I got rid of it by adding an entry to /etc/hosts (on Windows I think it's at C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc\) mapping w w w.youchoose.net to 127.0.0.1, so it just can't load. Complete page load times went from about 1 minute back to ~2 seconds.

p.s. Remove space from "w w w" above. I'm still too noob to be allowed to post anything that looks like URL.

Thanks justmike. I'll give that a try.

But that poll needs to go--it's made the site almost unusable.

justmike's fix worked for me. Go to your hosts file, as he directs and add a line that says: 127.0.0.1 Turning Passions into Actions | YouChoose

Fix takes effect after reboot.

Can you guys slow down the tech stuff on that fix of justmike? Not sure what you are talking about. Can you explain it to me like I am 4? Where is the host file?
Thanks
