    They didn't even work. Maybe like 30 seconds, and then flaccid again.
    Total bullshit.

    So is this just the new norm for the site? Taking 30 seconds to load every page?


    shitty

    Got a tech question for all you computer wiz's out there. A few days ago this site started loading excruciatingly slow. I figured it was another attack so didn't think much of it. It was fine when I logged on at work the next day... great!

    But when I got home, same deal, slow as balls. Like 20+ seconds to load any page or refresh. This has been consistent, good at work, shit here. Its even the same ISP at both locations. Happens on devices I use at both locations (laptop and mobile), so it must be my network at home I assume. I tried resetting my router, using a different browser, anything I could think of.

    It's annoying AF.... HALP!

    Try pinging the site at home and at work (go to command prompt, type in ping bluejaysmessageboard.com). That will give you the round trip times with nothing else going on that could affect it. If they're wildly different, then try tracing it (tracert bluejaysmessageboard.com), and see if it takes roughly the same path. This will help you either point at or eliminate the things outside of your control.

    thanks A-bomb I'll give it a try when I get to the office tomorrow. I did a few pings from home and I'm actually getting faster times on here than some other sites around.

    I've never used the tracert fucntion, whats it do? I just ran it an I assume a bunch of the timing out is a bad thing

    Not necessarily bad. Some nodes (I think) don't respond to the pings. If there was something really problematic in terms of delay, you'd likely still capture it if I understand it right.

    If that's working okay and similarly on both, then you can move on to looking at other things. It could be the site itself, but you shouldn't get the variation you are if it is. Maybe some ad is killing things. If you open the developer tools (chrome or firefox), you can reload the page and see what's taking the time to load.

    welp, the results are the same. I'll try the developer tool idea tonight and see if I can narrow it down. Only other thing I can think of is its something in my router/network settings because it happens on any device I use on the network.
