    Default Forum slow

    Admin and others - if the forum is presently as slow for you as it is for me, the culprit is the slow or no response from jquery.com.

    Eg, to connect to jquery-latest.min.js from the home page at 6.48pm took 30001.89 ms (30 minutes).

    I was unable to get a GET return from code.jquery.com at all shortly afterward.

    I thought it was just my selection of carrier, browser and operating system! I can no longer perform edits etc. using Opera, I have to use Explorer now or it's just rubbish. Even that is not reliable. Anyone else notice problems?

    The servers are up, but not reachable by the o/seas carriers used by my ISP. It will probably only be a problem for some users, depending on carrier. It isn't your browser. I wish the forum coders were a little bit more thoughtful.Kim, for the moment, try disabling javascript.

    I'll give that a go! Seems to have made an astonishing difference! Already! However I am still unable to do paragraphs, regardless of wysiwyg it all comes out linear!

    Problem solved after a discussion with my ISP. It seems the operator of one of the trans-ocean cables used by several ISPs was diverting some traffic to a black hole. Playstation, jQuery, and several others were also affected. It's now corrected.

    What it does reveal is a weakness (that's a polite word) in the coding of this forum, that ought to be looked at.

    The forum uses the jQuery javascript library (often quite unnecessary), and asks your browser to make an overseas trip to get the material.

    Your browser just waited, in this case, while it's request was transferred to a distant planet. If javascript is disabled, some features, like editing layout, are lost, but the site remains readable.

    I couldn't reply last night, pages were taking so long to load.
    I'll see what can be done at our end to fix the problem, all gobbly gook to me

    I did try to disable java, but as best I could determine it is already disabled on my machine?

    Thanks for your help seasink, we appear to be back to normal this morning

    Cheers

    Java is a programming language that runs under your operating system. It can do anything, including malicious acts, that any application can. I can understand anyone disabling it.

    Javascript is a different script coding language that is used within the browser. Browsers have an accessible menu/button setting to turn it on or off. jQuery is a library of javascript scripts. It was meant to make life easier for web developers, who are almost never programmers, who had Windows in mind. It is used often for things that don't need it.

    The library can come from a local copy or a public server. That last was our problem.

    I thought Kim was looking after that for you. . ?

    You may have to adjust your elbow patches, they should sit right on the bend at the elbow. I'll see if I can find the instructions or a pic for you
