hey guys, is anyone else having huge slowdowns here? I'm lagging like crazy! Which shouldn't be happening! I know this laptop isn't the best computer in the world but this site is the only site I'm having problems on no matter what I have open.
And considering my speed I shouldn't have this problem.
here's my speedtest.
EDIT: Basically the site is taking forever to load. Pages freeze up for several seconds before they finally load, etc.
http://deviant-generation.com/ - my site. Contact me, Korn, and gDrive. I'm the most active but they do come over to speak to me. Likewise it's always a place to send them a message when you need to. Plus you can meet my graphics team!
I thought maybe it was my net, as it is only 1meg speed.
The one thing I noticed on hot news stories like the new multiman, if the images are hosted elsewhere like imageshack instead of here locally, the page loads much slower.
I also noticed during xmas holidays, a huge spike of bots trying to guess the root password, which slows the server, as if defends off the botnet bruteforce, I guess they forgot that my own secret weapon http://scmods.com never sleeps, over 350 ip's blocked xmas day alone!
If I find some other problems I will update this post, the other thing that slows down is the amount of ads we have, sadly they are needed to support the site, but if you use adblock (not recommended) it helps, but even better is to upgrade to 'Number Cruncher' status, and you will find the site will load alot faster, no extra sponsor crap at all so nothing for adblock to load and then junk out.
Are you worried about your 'data freedom' rights, like Prism and NSA and want to be 'secure' online, and access what you want where you want?
Then signup now with our sponsor VPN4ALL and 'protect' yourself online, and don't forgot if you tried of searching the 'net for stuff, then grabbing an UsenetBucket account is the only way to go with unlimited downloads, fast speeds, uncensored servers, and low pay-per-month rates, and at the same time by signing-up with either of our sponsors you end up supporting our wonderful group of scene news sites that you enjoy reading daily!
