Admin, it seems MUCH better today...there is still some hesitation about every 10th quote, but not nearly as much as before.

Unhappy

I'm finding the site is still very slow to load puzzles and check answers. It takes a long time to go from page to page.

Sorry for the delay in addressing this - I was out of the office for nearly two weeks and didn't want to perform any major maintenance on the road, just in case.

I've implemented some database changes tonight that should lessen the server load a bit - if the slow page-load issue is server related, this should help it considerably. I'd love to hear from you guys to see if you notice any difference.

Thanks!

Hasnt changed anything for me. Still several seconds of lag time loading pages. Very occassionally, it loads like it used to.

That's disappointing.

Question for you - when you experience "lag" what exactly happens? i.e. when you click a link/button, which of the following occurs:

1. Nothing, current page remains on screen, browser status bar says "Connecting to cryptograms.org"

2. Same as above but browser status bar lingers on "Waiting for cryptograms.org"

3. The next page partially loads quickly (i.e. the title bar and maybe some of the header appears) but takes several seconds to load completely.

This might help me figure out what part of the process is causing the lag.

Thank you, Stephen. The site is working much faster for me now. I don't have to wait a long time for puzzles to load, and navigating from page to page is faster too.

Stephen, it WAS doing #1...but I decided to restart my computer and that seems to have made a big difference. I WAS having to dbl-click on "play another cryptogram" and "solve"...I've only done a few solves, but it's working like it used to. Thanks very much

Glad to hear! It's amazing sometimes what a reboot will accomplish. :-)
