"Pages take WAY too long to load" — Episode 2


Monday's post on this subject resulted in a total of 17 comments over a two day period, about a third of which noted slow loading of boj especially over the past few months and since I increased the size of the pictures.

An equal number of people said they've noticed no slowing or problems with pages loading.

I don't know what to make of it, frankly.

I do know this: if download speeds in the U.S. were like those in South Korea, where the average is 100Mps down, there'd be no slow downloads of anything.

I guess we'll just have to wait till we catch up.

I've always found your site to be one of the fastest I visit.

Could some of these people be experiencing throttling from AT&T.

You're site loads lickety split for me using either Firefox or Chrome. One vote for "all is well".

i use chrome and firefox for the most part, but i tested it w/ IE.

no matter which browser i use, the memory and processor utilization sky rocket when i click on my book of joe bookmark.

Without causing an outcry, I believe all is fine on your end.

There are a myriad of reasons of why sites download slow,

almost all are on the user end (if it is normally a fast site).

Please, please keep the pictures the same size,

Unless you enjoy mediocrity.
