    Re: Lounge slow to load List of Forums?

    I see this to be different from one visit to the next. I believe it to be a combination of the my local traffic and the traffic
    in the area of the server.

    "Less annoying Users?" you found the solution <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    See prior discussion starting with <post#=234431>post 234431</post#> . It may be the same type of thing. So far as I know, there hasn't been a hard and firm solution posted as yet.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Re: Lounge slow to load List of Forums?

    Sorry, missed that thread!

    The difference between what I'm observing and what seems to be described in the posts is that the first few lines (just before the Microsoft Office line) comes on the screen immediately, then there's a pause of around 5 seconds before the remainder appears. Seems fairly consistent at the times I access the net, and much slower than other websites like this Scripting one or this NT one. From the look of it, it would have to be the Lounge Server!

    Of course the well-known trick is to put all the waiting time at the front, and then download a complete screenful of data, looking like a lot of work has had to go into building it!

    John,

    Out here in the middle of the Pacific Ocean the clock runs at a different rate. It happens but is rare that the Lounge gets up with arthritis and limps very slowly in its efforts for us all. But mostly, you folks are in bed and we get a free ride because we live at a time six hours earlier than EST.

    I have minimimized those slow times, however, by choosing to display only those forums active in the last two days. Whether that speedup is subjective or actual is hard to say but as long as the computer's owner is content what could be wrong? <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>

    Bill,
    I think it's subjective rather than actual. <img src=/S/thewave.gif border=0 alt=thewave width=225 height=33>

    Re: Lounge slow to load List of Forums?

    I've noticed with pages built using FrontPage Server Extensions, which are ASP underneath, a delay in pages that run two database queries. The top part of the page shows immediately, then the table with the first query results, then the table with the second query results, after various intervals. I guess I prefer this to waiting a long time for the whole thing to be ready and appear all at once... but I'd really prefer that it get done faster. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Lounge slow to load List of Forums?

    We fortunate individuals who wondered how we ever managed to exist before the advent of affordable BroadBand have noticed that there is a sizeable time delay before the Lounge Server produces the list of forums, starting with Microsoft Office.

    Is this because there is so much work needed to be done to collect together all the information and shoot it down the line? Should be be pressing for a faster server? Better Perl programming? Less stroppy Users? <img src=/S/duck.gif border=0 alt=duck width=23 height=23>
