trouble getting WC to load
« on: July 03, 2006, 12:01:34 PM »
Don't know if anyone else has this problem - but it's been taking increasing amounts of time for the home page to load on my computer. Could be something to do with the antivirus programme, which is new, but I don't have an issue with any other frequently visited sites. Anybody else had this??

the first time I try to load any WC page, it takes a real long time.  Subsequent clicks within WC never take as long.  That's with two browsers (IE and Mozilla), different computers, networks, etc.  It's kind of odd.

Yes, I also have noticed the unusual slowness for a few days now (about a week ?) and just assumed it was my machine/browser BUT I must admit that none of the other sites I visit has experienced a similar slow-down !

Cheers

Have had the slow load here as well. Not just on initial load, pretty much on every page. It's not a huge delay, but definitely slower than most pages.

What do you guys expect?  It runs on wind-up phonograph technology at 78 rpm.  Poor old Slack is probably running on a treadmill to provide the power as well...

Hi guys:

I've been to Weenie Central and seen Slacks setup. It is run by treadmill, with beerhoulders. Powered by reindeer.

I suppose that explains it - but how about amphetamines for the reindeer. I'm losing the will to live waiting for the home page to load!

Professor, do you have a broadband connection or Dial Up?

I agree it is slow, but not suicidely so.

I'm on 2Mb broadband and the Home page is taking approx 15-16 seconds to load and further pages between 7 and 12 seconds.

Hope that helps

Steve

it's funny, since I don't seem to be having the same experience as some.  When I first go to the WC home page, I get the "loading WC.com" screen very quickly, but it sits on that for a real long time - probably the 15 seconds Steve says - before the home page actually loads.  But once I'm "in", page clicks don't seem noticeably slow.

all broadband, BTW.

I have always found the site slow to load - I'm used to it now!

This is my experience too Tom.  slow on initial loading - then it is fine.

Looks like UK has a different experience (and Richard, we tested your "broadband" connection -- which, you'll have to admit, pretty much junk.  :) )

I'm talking to my host to see if he has any ideas.

After my facetious comments above, a serious one now: yes, I suppose it does take time to load initially.  Thinking about it, I always reckoned this had something to do with the Weenie system searching for the cookie that identifies who is logging on(?)  That must delay matters a bit.  If I am honest, I always accepted the slight delay because I assumed this was what was happening.
