Slowish New Postings
« on: June 03, 2013, 05:41:19 am »
Is anybody else having an issue with typing up a new post or response? For some reason the text I type is lagging behind my typing speed, so it takes at least a few seconds for the input-typing-box-thing (this place where I'm typing this right now) to finish up a paragraph. The longer the post is, the worse it becomes.

I kind of doubt this is a forum problem, but I thought I'd mention it just in case anyway. Internet Explorer updated itself shortly before I noticed this problem, and I've gotten some Windows updates recently as well. D'y'think this is the reason? (It didn't happen with the previous version of Internet Explorer.)

I haven't experienced this, if anyone else has, please let us know. I'll look through some admin error logs to see if anything stands out.

That's a computer problem.
It sounds like IE is using up all of your system resources, or you're trying to do too much at once.

Also:
Don't use Internet Explorer, that's a good way to get computer AIDS.

Chrome is much better than Internet Exploder. Firefox makes my case fans kick up, but I suspect that's something to do with hardware acceleration.

I don't seem to have the problems with Internet Explorer that a lot of other people have. This problem with the slow-ness is the only one I've had for... many many moons, at least. I sort of luck out with Windows software, it seems.
My dad uses FireFox, but I haven't noticed that it's any better than Internet Explorer. It actually annoys me more, because I'm not used to its quirks.

For my first post today, I didn't have this issue (and it was a looong post). But the second, shorter post did start to get slower. Maybe it has something to do with the number of posts I make in a day?

I cleaned out some of the old error logs and optimized the database tables after reading the first post, it may be faster as a result, idk. There are no settings that would be affected by how many posts one makes a day, I'd encourage more by everyone :justabite:
