    Angry Slow Site

    I use satellite as we are rural and I am finding this site very frustrating it's very slow, any hints or solutions would be helpful?

    Avoid shooting with a 12 gauge shotgun. Use a Canon instead.

    Canon 5D, Canon 7D, 50mm 1.4, 18-55mm, Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 VC, Sigma 70-200mm f2.8, 580EX Speedlight. Facebook

    Performance is variable. There is a change planned this will help this situation.

    Rick and I are discussing a long term strategy - but that will increase the hosting costs about $60/month

    The best advice we have in the short term is don't open multiple sessions/tabs at the same time. I.e. only open one Tab to AP at a time.

    That doesn't help as it puts more strain on the servers.

    I'm having a hard time with the speed of this site as well

    Yeah, I have noticed it is a little slow. I don't have multiple tabs either, but it's okay - I'm still enjoying the site!

    Page generated in 0.36050 seconds with 23 queries [Server Load Averages (1:5:15) 2.70 : 3.14 : 2.72] when display this page (which is normal good performance)

    All the mods can see the performance data and we do keep an eye on it.

    As I said, there is a short term improvement we have to have within a week or so and a longer term solution we are actively pursuing (Virtual Private Server options).

    And if you want to help me cover the costs of running the site. Go to the AP Shop and make a donation. Cause if we upgrade to a better (much) hosting solution it is going to cost up to $150.00 a month, due to the site size, and usage.
