Anyone else have this problem

Can anyone tell if it's really just the amount of graphics that adds up, or if it's the problem of a busy server that's slow when answering requests?

(Possible way to tell: the first page you view will always be slower because the graphics are loaded for the first time. But the next page should be much faster because most images are already stored in your own cache.)

We already introduced a hard limit that restricted avatars to 6kb and sigs to 10kb. Maybe that's not enough? Or how about a check box in the user profile where registered members can chose NOT to view other people's sigs and/or avatars?

Either way, maybe it's time to get a server upgrade. :-?

I don't care what you do, just don't make the limits smaller. It is hard enough to get a signature under 10k. I don't want to have to start making them like 80x150. Most of mine now are about 300x86.

As a side note, I got DSL when it was first available in my developement and it was very fast at first but now I think more people are getting it here and it has got noticably slower at every site I go to.

Today I haven't had as many problems as I did, even yesterday. I live out in the boonies and dial-up is what I have. The last few weeks I've noticed slow times are 3PM to 7PM Eastern. Before and after that I've had no problems.


Today however I've has no issues, even during those times. ;-D

Last I heard from menyak on this subject was:
menyak wrote:Ok let's see - one ounce of flour... three ounces of baking powder... six ounces of black powder... dum-di-dum...

Apparently it worked. ;-D

(I'll start worrying when he mentions eye of newt... :-D )

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

Just a reminder to please keep me updated on any server lags. Visitor numbers are constantly rising, and if the server starts getting slower again, we can always throw in some more RAM. :-B

Don't remember if I made this up or whether I heard it on ESPN NEWS one time - I think I made it up. Anyway, if you have Alex Rodrizuez as "A-Rod" and Juan Gonzalez as "Juan-Gone," wouldn't Manny Ramirez have to be "Man-Ram?" :-b
