Just a quick note to let you know we're testing out a new ad server on the site. Please report any problems you may have.

Thanks
Geoff

It was delaying page loading by around 1 or 2 seconds, but isn't any more.

I'm on a cable modem.

GeoffK 03-31-01 05:52 PM

I was loading the box shots at the top via a java script and that seemed to slow things down... so I switched over to loading them via images... So that should have resolved that issue.

Thanks

stevevt 03-31-01 07:14 PM

And now there's a 2-3 second pause.

Edit = ...but only in some of the forums.

Unfortunately I had to go back to javscript tags, the image tags weren't loading correctly and the click throughs weren't working.

Still testing.

Steve... What browser are you using?

stevevt 03-31-01 07:34 PM

Navigator 4.73

I had to restart my computer a minute ago; I think it was a java-enabled crash.

And I'm typing this in IE, since Navigator has crashed yet again.

Gonna restart again...

I'm using IE 5.5 and am having no problems at all, if that helps.

GeoffK 03-31-01 07:54 PM

The javascript in the ads is sooooooo basic that it shouldn't cause crashes....theoretically

I had to switch to IE.

Navigator was slowed to a crawl. IE is working fine (assuming I'm grading on a curve).

The response time completely sucks due to waiting for ads.kleinman.com.

I got one of the rare, but most frequently found in sucky websites, hangups in Netscape where I had to close Netscape and go into task manager to shut down another errant instance of Netscape before being able to successfully run it again.

Netscape is quite slow b/c it downloads all 5 pics before displaying anything on the threads.

IE is okay b/c the threads load up, and the pics just load a little later.

But all things being equal, the 5 pics load about 10 times slower.

And I got hung up again and had to do the task manager end process thing again.

I would say the new ad server makes Netscape essentially unusable.

I swear, it takes like 15-20 seconds to see anything on a page when you go to a new thread. In San Francisco! Totally unacceptable for Netscape users and a bad April Fool's joke.

Note: I tried IE and it worked much better, perfectly acceptably.

Post note: Now Netscape is working faster. Other than the Dr. Watson, it's acceptable now. Maybe I'll try again tomorrow before I start hanging out at VHS Talk.

Post post note: Naw, it sucks again. I give up. It's doing that worst of all technique of killing Netscape and leaving an instance invisibly running in the background so no foreground instance will ever complete a page view. I never go back to sites that do that! At least I never have before.

And ad servers really should not be run on notebooks.

It crashed Netscape once for me tonight and it continues to delay off the 8081 port.


GeoffK 04-01-01 03:45 AM

I tried something to address the netscape issue. Let me know if it works.

conkie 04-01-01 04:22 AM

hum is that why i have 5 blank boxes at the top of the page that say Click here? (ps i am behind a Firewall, so if it's loading off any port but 80 or 53 thats why)
I will have to check when i get home. but no images. Just Red X's.

Oh never mind heres the problem

Much, much better. Each image seems to complete loading on its own and entire page loading is faster and smoother. Thanks!

djones6746 04-01-01 11:30 AM

Thank God I do not have Netscape at home...this has been a nightmare at work this weekend trying to access threads etc..... :)

stevevt 04-01-01 12:48 PM

It's back to horrific on Navigator.

Crashy and slow.

I.e., I'm on IE again.

ydkjman 04-01-01 04:52 PM

I am seeing a delay in the loadin of the pages as well right now. I'm on IE 5.0

ydkjman 04-01-01 05:16 PM

This is really buging me. Because there is such a delay, when I start scrolling down then the page finally loads all the way it jumps back back up a few line messing my reading up.

stevevt 04-01-01 06:07 PM

Navigator is unusable.

In case you needed an update.
