Site Sluggish??
« on: May 09, 2016, 01:46:07 AM »
am I alone in finding the site is running somewhat sluggishly recently and especially so currently?  I'm using a Mac with the latest OS 10.11.4 and the latest versions of Mac Safari and Firefox.  Find the same thing on my iPad.

Just tried my Win machine 8.1 with Firefox and Chrome and the site won't even load.  Everything else in my normal surfing routine is running perfectly fine.

Regards

Yesterday in particular and for some days last week, yes it was very slow to respond for me as well. What's interesting about Safari these days is that it essentially pre-fetches some links, so that when you click on one, it renders instantly. If it doesn't load, you know it's NOT a browser caching issue of any kind; it's just not getting the response from the server.

Seems like it's working great this morning, yes?
It's the iconic symbol for the backyard. It's family/friends, food and fun. What more do you need to feel everything [is] going to be all right. As long as we can still have a BBQ in our backyard, the world seems a bit of a better place. At least for that moment. -reillyranch

Any one seeing picture quality issues? My last couple of posts have resulted in blurry pictures? Maybe a setting or selection on my end?

We've been having some issues with our server.
Good times.
