Question

Posted

things on neowin seem to be slowing way down again this morning

it's taking upwards of 30 sec for a page to connect and load and pages aren't auto refreshing at all this morning after i make a post on a thread. i sit there for a minute nothings happened so i press the refresh button, wait another 30 sec for the page to load and then i can see my post is there

edit: and now i'm getting database errors, go figure lol

Still as slow as 56k here, even after clearing all my saved data and caches, and also happens to be a new PC, and a new Chrome install

Things will be slower for a little while right now as I'm dumping the DB to re-create our secondary mysql server

Can't/Shouldn't you do that when peak user load is minimal?

I don't think a minute or 2 downtime matters, this isn't really A&E

I love the placebo effect :p The database rebuild will have no effect on anything until I edit the config files to tell parts of the site to use the 2nd DB. Until then, things are exactly as they were yesterday

Feeding the hamsters is fine and all... i mean they need their food!

But, the slowness of this site this has been an ongoing issue for... well... a very long time off and on. It has been long enough that the norm is for the site to be slow as hell. I hope it's not because i went from being a Subscriber to a leecher, but what's to make me subscribe again if it's always this stinking slow?

Edit: i should add that i'm not trying to be excessively critical... more like trying to be constructively critical.
