Of course, it depends on your own computers and its Internet connection/Internet Service Provider.

Have you noticed the problem on specific pages, or all pages? Have you noticed that the main content loads, but images take longer to load? You should still be able to scroll and read content while images load.

We are continuing to work on this and I'm sorry if you are having a poor experience. Please share any details you can that will help us sort this out.

Thanks,

Same here also. This occurs mostly when I'm going back to a previous page. I too hit the 'stop' button if the page doesn't load after a minute or so and it pops up... most of the time. Sometimes I just give up and close the page and reload. Now I know why! Ya'll aren't the same folks who work for Pelosi and those Obummer care folks, are ya?? lol I'm using Google Chrome.

Very much the same with me as others…. The pretty green trees and landscape load first…. Then the ads…. finally the content..
It varies with no rhyme or reason….
sometimes it is 3-9 seconds… others it is a couple minutes…

I have not changed anything… and I have noticed it since the upgrade…
Not sure what was upgraded but this is what I have seen…
Thanks
Mario

Re: LRH Page loading time

those are pretty green trees, but thats what I see most of the time.
Once in a while it works like lightning, but most of the time after a few tries I just call it quits.

Windows 8 with mcafee security using fire fox and even slower with IE

it just took a count of 91 to open this forum, a count of 52 to go from page 1 to 2 and then a count on 132 after i hit the reply button to write this.

Maybe its my home computer, I will try it at work tomorrow.

love the site but the upgrade has somehow affected me.

Re: LRH Page loading time

I'd be interested in knowing the results of your computer at work. No matter what testing service I use on the Internet, the speed is never more than 10 seconds. The only time I have ever recorded speeds like you describe are when we were under a recent DoS attack and dialup speeds.

Our upgrade was to a new server, from a VPS to a dedicated box. Faster CPU, more and faster RAM and a faster Hard Drive. The transfer was done on 2/27/14. We experienced some initial issues, but that was, to some degree, an issue with browser caching of the old server IP address. Many of the issues were resolved by clearing browser caches, so you might try that.

The pictures below are results of 4 speed tests I did just minutes ago. I performed tests at 3 other services and got similar results. Only one service showed results from about 25-68 seconds and those were all dialup results for modems at 33.6K, 28.8K and 14.4K. I can't test every single page, but I have been testing the most popular landing pages.

From a personal perspective, Len, his son and I have all felt pages were loading faster than they did on the old server. Unscientific, but noticeable speed increase. But I will continue to work on optimizing the resources we have to give members and visitors to LRH the best and fastest experience I can.
