So why is Mudcat currently (Jan 2012) so so slow!!
It is taking ages just to look at threads.....
It is not taking so long to get responses on other sites I use?

Unless things have changed since my back was turned, it is just Max, and 3 'puters.........might be that he is busy, or working on one of them. Try one of the other servers.......sometimes you can switch around, and it will speed things up. I think i used to switch to Loki.

Don't forget that Max survived a massive computer failure not so long ago. I'm sure donations are welcome to help him recover from that damage and to support this wonderful, free, Mudcat.

Donate here: http://www.mudcat.org/support.cfm

You can also buy the newest Mudcat cds, The price is $60 for 6 CDs (5 x This Is Us, + Until The Dark Time Ends--seasonal CD). They can be ordered invidually. Either way, send a PM to Dick Greenhaus (also at previous link).

Thanks, Max & company

About a week ago it was a level above Mudcat...some key DNS server and router was out in central PA. Don't know if that's the case today.

I've noticed lots of "waiting for response from mudcat.org" and some of them have been rather long waits, intermittently over a few weeks.

Once the 'cat answers the phone it zips right up.

That might indicate some deterioration in a feeder/relay that's hanging up, something about the mudcat's service connection, or a choked up queue at the mudcat server I would think.

We might be able to test the last possibility if all the rest of you would go home ... but then I wouldn't have anybody to talk to.

It does seem to be about normal this morning, although I've only opened a couple of threads and this is my first post for a few hours.

It is rumoured that the recent slowness is to get back to the simpler, more human, liesurely, pastoral, horse-drawn pre-broadband dial-up pace of days gone by when 'Catters were younger, fitter, slimmer and knew their place in the fuedal order as a truly authentic community of traditional folk enthusiasts.

it doesn't matter if you block them, the server still has to load the things. Take the load time for an animated gif and multiply it by 1000 concurrent users requesting resources and see the performance stats.

With adsense the ads change, when they are not animated you will run fine, when they switch to animated you will run crappy. I been there. You can block all you want but the server still has to honor the ads and will consume resources

I agree with olddude.... I see the little window at the bottom saying "sending request to googlesyndication.com"

I think that even when an ad is blocked, it takes a certain amount of time before it surrenders and allows the page to load...and as I mentioned in my thread on google & javascript, some as are getting thru anyway.

Of course, Max may have other problems locally, but I'm guessing that the Amazon/Google bit is involved.

I get a lot of "taken offline by Max" and click again and it opens. Could it be that some troll is slowing the site down? by clicking threads like the MOAB in full or whatever? In any case, I am sure Max is on top of it.

Check your memory utilization on the Ads ... increase the amount of memory resources to the server and increase the swap file for paging. I bet both are too small to handle the gifs
