FR is loading fast and the FReepathon Banner is gone.

We must have raised all that's needed, right?

Woo Hoo.

Its absence might be an attempt to make the site run better.

And I notice the keywords were cleaned up. A lot fewer. More relevant.

Yeah, I told the page to reload because I thought it hadn't fully loaded without 600 skajillion keywords.

Not running faster consistently and I am curious how FR went from $36K yesterday and $59K today.

I’ve been disabling it every afternoon for the last several days just to make sure we’re transmitting a little less data with every click.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It’s called Rolling in the Monthlies. I don’t quite know what that means, but JR does it every 30 days after each FReepathon begins.

You’re a good man, Jim.

Sacrificing exposure to the much needed FReepathon just so the site runs faster.

Also. There’s a question on the table (this thread) about Rolling in the Monthlies. Can you help us and explain what that means?

Thanx.

Two-thirds of our monthlies come in during the last two months of each quarter (approx $23,000) this quarter). When we get to a certain point in each FReepathon, I go ahead and accrue them (roll them in) into the totals. Makes a big jump.

Thank you very much, monthly donors!!

Thank you all very much!!

Some of the runners were refusing to run and intended to line up and then aid the flood victims instead.

Yes, I stripped my FR page format way down, and it helps a lot.

Everyone, if you haven’t heeded the instructions on how to make FR load faster, DO IT NOW!

I liked the suggestion that they should have held the marathon and had the runners run to Staten Island carrying a gallon of water and a case of MREs each.

Obama, Bloomberg, and the rest of the Dems should vote for Romney because they’ve been obeying Republicans for six months now.

Dang, Jim, if we had a steady 300, we could knock this out. I think you had around 70 that got in, if we could get 230 more to give $100 this weekend, it would pretty much put it away.

Come on, 300 Club!!

I followed Jim's advice and turned off a lot of stuff. It only took (literally) about 25 tries and 40 minutes, but it does run faster and it only times out about 80% of the time.
Yes, that's an improvement, considering that it takes three steps to compose, preview and post a response. And it times out at each step at least once.

Some of us are set up for automatic monthly contributions. Jim probably lumps them in all at one time.

Hannity was really ripping Bloomberg on his radio show.

For several years I've noticed performance issues during Freepathons, but I think it's probably linked to the in-thread donation graphics rather than the progress bar.
