Slow response with DVRChatter site

Frank, yesterday and today I've been having a consistent 20 second delay in initial access of DVRChatter or in going to a new page within it, such as a different forum or a posting.  I see this with two different computers and with two different browsers.  With Firefox, the ad segment normally on the left side of the screen comes up immediately upon initial access, in the middle of a blank screen; the main content comes 20 seconds later and the ad column is then on the left side of it, as normal.  When accessing a new page the ad segment again comes up immediately on a blank screen, with the main content following 20 seconds later.  When I use IE the initial display is blank (without the centered ad segment) followed 20 seconds later by the normal display, including ad.  This pattern repeats when accessing a new page, with the IE never displaying the ad in the center.  It really slows down navigation on the site for me.  Have you made any changes in the past two days, or am I just caught in a Bermuda triangle here, with nobody else having been affected?

Re: Slow response with DVRChatter site

Here's what's weird.  I have noticed it, but only in refreshing pages.  Thought it may just be me.  If I go to index, then new posts, then to a post, then back to index, then into a forum, etc....that's all fast.

If I hit "Refresh" anywhere it hangs like you describe.

I'm thinking it may be the amazon ad causing the problem.  That's the only recent change I made. I'll take it off now, and we'll see if that fixes matters.

Well, that wasn't it.  Maybe it's the Gagdet Network thing.  I'll take that out.

Re: Slow response with DVRChatter site

That seems better.  That image is hosted at blog ads.  I'll host it locally.  Let me know if you see further problems.

Re: Slow response with DVRChatter site

Nope - it's the Gadget Network code, not the image.  I'm taking the whole shabang off - let me know if you see further problems.

Re: Slow response with DVRChatter site

Frank, do you happen to have ads and what-not on the forums because of the web server you have the forum running on? If so, send me a PM and we'll talk about getting rid of those ads so it can be completely DVR Chatter cool

Re: Slow response with DVRChatter site

No, I have the ads to pay for the web hosting.  I fully control all content.  The ads are ours, not the hosting company's.

Re: Slow response with DVRChatter site

I appreciate the offer, but I'm contracted with these folks.  They're good people: responsive and competent.

Re: Slow response with DVRChatter site

Yesterday afternoon (Friday about 4PM Central), I couldn't even access the site. Firefox said the address didn't exist.

Re: Slow response with DVRChatter site

Yeah - that was a known issue unrelated to the slow loading.  Like I said, the hosting company is responsive.  I noticed it, got into their Customer Service chat feature, and they kept me updated throughout.  As far as I know, the outage lasted about 15 minutes.
