FR has new load shedding feature?
Vanity ^ | Today! | self

Posted on 08/17/2013 10:46:34 AM PDT by Paladin2

So the fix to not filling page requests is near infinite response times on reading postings, posting response and some other features is to drag them out?

Not much of an improvement.

Well, you could buy your own servers and program them better.

I guess that might be a better solution.

Whining is not usually a good solution.

I’m getting 1 second response times when I click to read a post....

Works fine for me.

Likely you picked up some malware while surfing porn.

A good system always has a graceful failure mode.

It’s only Freeperthon tactics to teach us to fall in line...and it always gets “fixed”.

Even Ray Charles can see through these tactics...and he’s blind and dead!

P0rn rulz the costs of the internet. Without it costs would necessary sky rocket.

I suspect it's all teh time I've been spending at the "Let's elect Bammy for a third Term" websites I've been visiting.

Or it could be today's "update" to Firefox.

I own my own servers.

Posting to myself is not as much fun.

Looks like a re-reboot fixed it (though other websites were working fine).

You should be thankful not everyone here knows how to implement a "twit filter" on a webpage. You think your upwards of a couple of seconds loading time is irritating now, just imagine how you would feel after a few days of absolutely no responses to you or your posts.

I have no problems loading up pages so it must be something on your end -you are running the 'Doze OS, of course! Malware or Adware should be the immediate suspect.

That or M$ has another security "feature" that has just been discovered, and after about a month after Linuxgeeks have figured out the vulnerability and issued an unacknowledged patch for it they might or might not include it in their latest "security upgrade". Said issued-by-M$ upgrades not guaranteed not to crash your system, of course.

"You think your upwards of a couple of seconds loading time is irritating now"

Pages were loading fine. Just not ancillary features like "reply" which were nearly infinite compared to my patience for loading.

Interesting. My "Reply" function displayed no measurable difficulties implementing its assigned function then and apparently...

Now.

It could have been that a simple logout and then login coulda fixed things.

Too late to test that "fix" now.

No problem for me posting replies.

If it works for some users and not others, it’s almost certainly an issue with the slow user’s PC, browser, etc.

Since so many people have “issues” with their computers these days due to the junkiness of the design of the web and M$ Windows, it’s even more likely that the issues are on the client side and not on the server (more so than typical IT support issue resolution experience, where the trouble often has to do with something the user did; if it’s something “IT” did or a problem on a server, every user has the same problem).

The user’s browser should be configured to allow caching of objects, but to empty the cache when you close your browser, etc., that is, have your browser not infected with all sorts of junk, be viewing a malware website in another window while you’re posting to FR, etc.

There are many cheezball websites that try to sell junk with pop ups, malware sites that start using javascript to check out and mess up other sites you’re browsing at the moment, start opening new windows uncontrollably, etc. You’ve got to clean all the junk out that they leave in your browswer cache, possibly even reinstall your browser after “visiting” such sites, or they can interfere with other websites you browse.

FR all by itself chugs along fine.

I believe it was a recent hardware upgrade that made it now perform very acceptably as long as the user has a reasonable internet connection and machine.

I like that. Suggest that FR add a category called “Pointless Bitching” to the selections under “General Chat” ;-)

Fortunately the current web-surfing computer is one of my kids college laptops with a bad keyboard and bad display hooked up to an external keyboard and monitor. Kitties can’t possibly poke around in there.

I don't know what "the fix" is all about above, but I've been having problems with FR all weekend. Sometimes it's fine, but often when I check Posts, Mail, Browse, try to post a comment (like this one), etc., I get a blank white page. Then I'll try it again, and it usually works.

Is something wrong with FR?

Took me 3-4 times to post that one comment in #28 and #29.

Sorry about the double post... I couldn't help it.
