Slow load times?

I just received an email from a reader who is experiencing slow load times with this blog -- specifically with bar on the right hand side. This post is to see if others are experiencing something similar.

I'd appreciate any feedback you can give. Please leave me a comment in this post or email me at light.the.lamp@hotmail.com and I'll certainly look into it on my side.

Thanks!

On occasion, I have noted somewhat slower load times but this seems to be more the result of your tendancy to keep adding more and more content to the same page. This can become cumbersome if a lot of the content contains pictures and maybe video links. I have braodband so it isn't a major problem, but if anyone is using a modem, oh my....... Maybe you can "archive" pages more often as you do currently on the right panel. Just a thought. Keep up the good work though. This is a grat BLOG site.

Works fine for me.

Slow at times...

if you watch the status bar at the bottom of your brower, it occasionally stalls while loading a video from bluejackets.tv???

That might be a place to start.

Load times have been fine for me, and I'm on a really doggy satellite hookup.

Right column is WAY to large. There has to be some trimming you can do there. I suspect nobody is scrolling all the way to the bottom.

As for speed, that column is only a problem when loading it on my phone, so I use my handy dandy light the lamp phone reader ;)

LTL,

Slow at times but usually alright.

You may want to look at "Tag Clouds" to clean up the billion of tags shown on the right. That should speed things up considerably. Even dropping everything that has less than 5 or so, and having another page where people can see every tag would be helpful.

@JN: Wow, your phone reader links work great! My cell phone used to choke on the Puck-rakers and the LTL blog. Super fast now. Are you going to keep these available to all? Thanks...

JN said...

@Snappy: You bet. Feel free to use them, I don't plan on moving them.
