Re: Slow, slow, slow and menu not responding

Response time in this session was a bit better, so I tried to get back here to say so. However, I could not get the Quick Links menu to drop down for a full minute. It seems to be loading something and won't allow this function until done.

Re: Slow, slow, slow and menu not responding

I'm seeing this at the top menu bar. "log out', "Calendar" and "User CP" links work... New posts, Quick Links, Search and Community go to hourglass. (PC/Chrome) with no response (also no response to active 'notifications' link)

MUCH better. I notice the bibsonomy.info thing is gone also

Thanks, sailnet.com appears to be usable again!



Why are people happy to accept science which makes their life easier while rejecting science that makes their faith or beliefs more difficult?

I got my first email account in the mid '80s from the school board.

My intro to the internet was archie, ftp, and gopher.

When I was a volunteer with the Calgary Freenet we were all excited about a 1 megabit fibre optic line coming in to the city. We became concerned when browsers appeared as the would chew up band width with all those images. We learned to be parsimonious with our code.

Amazing advances in the technology, eh?

These little time delays are annoying, but much better than the days of my 5600k modem. My first was a 300 baud modem with which I could connect to Compuserve.

Re: Slow, slow, slow and menu not responding

Much better on Firefox right now. Thank you.

Not sure why the initial reaction always seems to be pushback that the users are wrong.

never said users are wrong - simply stating the results of using chrome and FF.

as usual Internet Expolder (not sure why anyone even uses this piece of junk software) has all the issues. JMHO
