In general, I think this site is slower than the old software. pathsoflegend.org is now on our own host instead of mooching off of CMP, so we can truly see the speed difference now. I'm kinda hoping it's just my browser -- Firefox -- but I find that to be rather odd. Only have time to browse at work right now and my main computer is down, on one of my test boxes now. *bing!* Fixed computer just arrived, switching to main. Grin

It must have been that computer. I guess 512 isn't enough to run WindowsOS + Firefox nowdays...? Anyway, it's speedy. Smiley

512 ... blink ... blink ... I always made the rule of thumb at least 1024 when Windows is involed.

But I'm a bit of a speed freak so it figures.

One thing, the site loads way faster for me, same machine, same configuration as I used ro the old site, Athlon SP 1500+ with 512 Ram memory. I have Windows XP with firefox 1.0.5.6 with a theme and a few extensions (more than a few, actually). You can always check how much time the page was genrated though, the lowest writing in the page says how long it took for the page to be created, the rest is your computer's conenction to the internet, how far you are from the server and how slow is your computer to display the date he has received.

Are you comparing speeds to the site that is currently archived at pathsoflegend.org? That's the only valid comparison, as CMP's servers weren't exactly giving us their full attention. Wink

Yeah, both before and now this one is faster for me, and I think that one is still there, btw, just domain name has changed, that is why Todd said we would lose the last week or so of posts there. Wink

In a completely empiric way, the new site now runs MUCH faster for me (same computer, configuration & connection).

I agree...the new site loads much quicker, and I haven't had any of the long pauses in loading I used to get.

And I have also set it to automatically send you back to thread after a post, so no transition page too. Wink
