OT : Just FYI, your blog is taking 20+ seconds to start to load, as seen from here in Europe, since about a fortnight now. Cause?

Comrade Misfit said...

Is that fast or slow?

CenterPuke88 said...

I wasn't gonna complain, but after the last adjustment it was better for 2-3 days and then got slow again. I concur with extremely slow compared to other sites, maybe Badtux has an idea? His site is loading fast as usual.

Comrade Misfit said...

Could be that there are more posts. I cut down on the time they're displayed.

Firefox loads this site very slowly on PC and Mac. Safari on Mac and iPad is slow. IE is fine. Firefox on iPad is fine.

Comrade Misfit said...

On my office PC: Six seconds to load with IE, Chrome, and Opera. 13 seconds with Firefox.

What CP88 said: I've long been used to slow loading on your site. Dunno if it's actually the site or the host, because I don't use anything else on blogger.com.

Ole Phat Stu said...

For comparison : May I ask you and your esteemed commenters to tell me how fast my European blog loads for them?

I regard your 20+ seconds (Firefox on a laptop) as extremely slow :-(

EBM is hosted by Google. If it is slow, it is because Google has decided to dedicate fewer resources to Blogger, *OR*, Google is under a denial of service attack *again*. Unfortunately the biggest Internet companies are under almost constant denial of service attack nowadays for a number of reasons I won't go into.

My blog is hosted by Wordpress, which is owned by Automattic and appears to be hosted in a data center that peers directly with Comcast, or even in one of Comcast's data centers. For those of us whose ISP is Comcast, that would make it fast to load indeed...

I just opened up my web browser's developer tools and did a forced refresh to see if there were any elements that were slow on this page. The entire page loaded within 1.8 seconds. The longest element to load took 258ms. If this blog is slow in Europe, it's got something to do with pipes between here in the SF Bay area and Europe, it's got nothing to do with the page itself.

Ole Phat Stu said...

That is why, suspecting narrow pipes, I asked you good folke to tell me how slow my Yurpean site is for you.

Comrade Misfit said...

Stu, about 3 to 3.5 seconds.

Ole Phat Stu said...

Thankyou. So the time doubles going through transatlantic pipes.
I guess then the problem (the slowness of your site) is due to your provider since X.atlantic Xfer times are only 1-2 seconds.???
