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.

Proposed: A Tainted Performance State For The Linux Kernel

Similar to the kernel states of having a tainted kernel for using binary blob kernel modules or unsigned modules, a new tainting method has been proposed for warning the user about potentially adverse kernel performance. Dave Hansen of Intel has proposed a new "TAINT_PERFORMANCE" for the kernel that would proactively print a warning message about not using the kernel for any performance measurements. Dave explained in his RFC announcement, "I have more than once myself been the victim of an accidentally-enabled kernel configuration option being mistaken for a true performance problem. I'm sure I've also taken profiles or performance measurements and assumed they were real-world when really I was measuring the performance with an option that nobody turns on in production. A warning like this late in boot will help remind folks when these kinds of things are enabled." Read more
