Slow for everyone? Or just me?

I've noticed that MetaFilter pages are coming up slower than usual for me, here on the east coast of the US. It's regularly taking between 2 and 18 seconds for content to show. This is isn't the case for my connection on other web sites. So, I ran some page load measuring tools that try to get a sense for how things load from various places in the world. [more inside]

Is anyone else experiencing instability with MetaFilter today? I've had a fair number of time-outs and slow-downs with site loading and refreshes. It seems only limited to this particular site. Just checking in.

Usability plugin for recent political megathreads?

I've been following the most recent last primary US election post and the Brexit post in my recent activity. However, trying to load these threads (even on my laptop - I don't even bother on my phone) in full is very difficult. Are there Chrome plugins out there that will allow me to truncate or modify these threads in some way to make the page load faster?

Long thread is long

With the political season upon us like a vicious ape clinging to our backs, our long, long coupla thousand comment threads are a beast to load, especially on mobile devices. Is there a way to have a user-set preference to fold all but the last, say, 100 comments so that they don't have to load up each time? [more inside]

I know I'M slow, but Metafilter?

In the past couple of weeks, whenver I load a fresh copy of the Blue it takes a couple of seconds for all the links (in posts, profiles, etc.) to start 'working'. Once or twice I've gotten an error message that says "Scripts are taking a long time to load, do you want to continue loading them?". What's going on? I'm a Vista user, but as I said it's only been for the last couple of weeks, and it doesn't happen in AskMe or MetaTalk. I ask here vice in an email in the event it's happening to others...

transferring data from www.google-analytics.com

When loading Metafilter or AskMetafilter, the content of the page seems to load fully, but the message at the bottom left of the status bar is constantly displaying the message "transferring data from www.google-analytics.com", and the icon on the left of the tab keeps going round. Using Firefox

Connecting to static.fmpub.net...

AskMe is hanging half-rendered, with the status bar reading "Connecting to static.fmpub.net...", which, indeed, is not accepting connections.

Slow loading?

the blue, gray and green all seem remarkable slow the last two days. pages seem to load in fits and starts. often the page appears to be waiting for google ads, but sometimes not. what's the deal?

The timeout setting is pretty low right now.

These days there's enough traffic on MeFi (which is a good thing) that it takes a while, what with interruptions and such, to get through all the new links, comments, and new comments on previously-seen threads. So Matt, could you increase the timeout setting (or make it configurable on the User Page) for deciding when to update the new comments count? Thanks!

Several page errors on loading the blue

Surely I am not the only one noticing an unusual number of errors when trying to load pages from the blue side:

The request has exceeded the allowable time limit Tag: cfoutput

The error occurred in C:\metafilter sites\www.metafilter.com\header.cfm: line 189

Trouble loading the front page, and being redirected.

I tried to load up metafilter earlier and it was taking a while. I noticed at the bottom of my explorer window it said something like "Opening page http://www.b4ta.com/metafilter" Then the page failed to load entirely. I'm confused.

right_banner.gif isn't loading for me

There's a little image (right_banner.gif) at thet top right corner of every page that's not loading for me. It's not broken, it's just not loading. I don't know if I've ever even noticed it before. Is it showing up for anyone else?

Is the server having problems?

is the site under unusual stress? the last few days i have been getting numerous timeouts and internal errors. a few days ago i installed Windows 2000 Pro and upgraded to IE 5.5 (yes i know 6 is available). i'm not seeing problems on other sites, but the OS and browser change have me paranoid. please tell me it's the high traffic!

Having problems with the server right now.

ugh. Server is slow/dying for no known reason. I'll be trying to get the new server up as soon as I can this week.
