Is it just me...

Filed under
WebSite

Is it just me or is tuxmachines.org slowing down?

Not the stories or reviews, but downloading any page or story. At work its worse than at home but in the last 2-3 weeks, slow city.

Any one else finding this?

Most, if not all, other sites I've bookmarked just flash onto the screen in seconds. tuxmachines.org at work takes about 1 minute and about 45 seconds at home.

Just an observation, no critisism implied.

New theme...

The new theme looks great.

Unfortunatly still slow. Won't stop me from visiting though.

Cheers,
Nicsmr

re: slow?

I think the google ads are slowing things down a bit, and visitors are increasing. My pipe is being stretched to its limits I'm afraid. But I can't afford to move. I received two whole donations in the last year and no one is clicking the google ads.

I wonder if the new theme is slowing it down some as well? I'll change back when I have the time in the next few days and see if that help.

Edit: How's this theme? I think it's one of the lightest available for drupal.

Elsewhere, Hackaday.com's Brian Benchoff said new FCC regulations just killed Open Source firmware replacement and Phoronix.com today reported that LILO is being abandoned. Several polls caught my eye today as did the new Linux workstation security checklist. Read more

Accelerating Scientific Analysis with the SciDB Open Source Database System

Science is swimming in data. And, the already daunting task of managing and analyzing this information will only become more difficult as scientific instruments — especially those capable of delivering more than a petabyte (that’s a quadrillion bytes) of information per day — come online. Tackling these extreme data challenges will require a system that is easy enough for any scientist to use, that can effectively harness the power of ever-more-powerful supercomputers, and that is unified and extendable. This is where the Department of Energy’s (DOE) National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center’s (NERSC’s) implementation of SciDB comes in. Read more
