Site Speed

Thanks in part to the financial support of Club FTE members we've completed a system upgrade that should result in a significant increase in browsing speed of the site.

Next week we going to bring an additional two servers online to really get things moving.

Very cool Ken! I am on 28.8 K dial up while on vacation and it doesn't seem too slow compared to my high speed DSL at home. Plus, I don't have any ADS because I am am Club FTE member!

Good to hear, I guess. Lately even my DSL at work is at an absolute snails pace. Basically locks my computer up trying to get to forums(only THIS site). Takes forever to get refreshed after posting. This all in the last week.

Is something changing? being changed?? It used to be really quick.

I've been getting these "Cookies" from this site only for the last week or so

"pagead2.googlesindication.com"

my log shows that they are downloading up to 5 per minute. The more there are in your Cookie Jar the slower this site operates.
I cleaned out my Cookie file of all the above mentioned files, about a thousand, and came back to the site. For the first minute or so every thing worked fast, fourm to fourm, message to message, as things progressed it slowed down.
I now have well over 100 of the above mentioned files just from this session.

FTE cookies are GOOD.

Pop-up cookies from other sites are bad

They can be cleaned out manually, one by one.

The same cookie from them should get reset repeatedly, once for every page -- not a bunch of individual cookies. The number of cookies set shouldn't impact browser speed, 1000 is pretty much nothing for a computer to handle. Disk caching of too many pages (with or without cookies) can be a major slow down, especially with some browsers wanting to use a gigabyte or more space for disk caches. That results in a huge page index to sort through for every new page loaded. Take a look at your browser settings and keep the cache size under 128 MB.

Thats a good point. I had problems with mine slowing down awhile back and found the cache at 1081mb, put it to 80mb and now things have been pretty smooth.

Yeah, my computer defaulted to nearly 2 gigabytes for Internet Explorer! Its at 64MB now. For very slow connections a huge disk cache a good thing. For fast connections it isn't.

Mine was running fairly good at 150MB, but I kicked it down to 96MB to see if it made a difference. After I cleared the cache it made the first few pages load slower since it was rebuilding the cache.
