I can already notice an increase. Is there a way that this site can be setup so our IP can detect our login name and password. It isn't a problem at work since we have a T3, but it does take quite some time to have to login when I'm on dial-up at home. Just a suggestion....

Definitely faster. Using Netscape 4.7, I no longer see a pause between opening a page and it rendering. Before, the page would open, the machine would pause for a few seconds, and then the page would render. Nice fix. Wanna share the technical details? [:)] Just curious what changed. Did you folks update the primary page as well? (I've been disabling JavaScript before loading it, so that my browser wouldn't hang or crash.)

Seems a good bit faster to me. Now, about the search function... [img]http://members.aol.com/govtthug/images/govtthug.gif[/img]

Seems better on my dial-up. My reply to a post earlier was much quicker.

Seems speedier. Ken

Fresh and minty, too!

It 'feels' faster - but still seems to take quite a while (but maybe not as long???) to jump from one page within a topic to another, or from one forum to another. I like the new folder icons.

Like the new folders. Don't notice the speed however. Its always been fast loading for me. Have T1 @ work and Cable modem @ home.
Link Posted: 5/18/2001 9:07:33 AM EDT
I have an ISDN connection, the site is definetly fast enough for my connection atleast.
Link Posted: 5/18/2001 9:40:36 AM EDT
Noticeably quicker - especially in opening the reply screen. [sniper]
Link Posted: 5/18/2001 9:42:28 AM EDT
It is not violating my inalienable rights inscribed in the 2nd Amendment, so I feel that it is adequate.
Link Posted: 5/18/2001 10:03:36 AM EDT
Seems to be running a bit faster...new icons...certainly didn't hurt anything. Thanks.
Link Posted: 5/18/2001 10:06:49 AM EDT
Faster than Imbroglio running towards a hot naked woman on a king size waterbed! A lot better Goatboy! Thanks for all the things that you and Ed Jr. have done to this site. OOOOkkkkkaaayyyy! Ed Sr. too! [:D]
Link Posted: 5/18/2001 10:13:52 AM EDT
Not bad, not bad at all! The icons look a bit different though.
Link Posted: 5/18/2001 10:32:19 AM EDT
It is a bit faster. Six
Link Posted: 5/18/2001 10:55:55 AM EDT
As a Macintosh user I'd guess speed has increased 3 to 4 times faster than before the change. THANKS!

Pretty darnded zippy for dial up, must have been doing some good coding, GoatBoy. I'm much happier with the speed now. Juggernaut
Link Posted: 5/18/2001 11:21:07 AM EDT
Loading real fast for me now, Dial-up connection! Thanks GoatBoy [beer]

WOW!!! The speed really picked up. Thanks. I love the new icons, too!! PS. I am on a dial up, so I really noticed it.
Link Posted: 5/18/2001 1:32:42 PM EDT
Much faster. On my end I'm plugged into a full T1 and AR15 has always been one of the slowest (understandable) pages around. Nice coding. Godspeed

Link Posted: 5/18/2001 1:47:31 PM EDT
Yeah, it loads much faster. Using MacOS 9.1 and Netscape 6.01
Link Posted: 5/18/2001 1:49:40 PM EDT
Works much faster, Cable connection on IE 5.5
Link Posted: 5/18/2001 1:59:50 PM EDT
Link Posted: 5/18/2001 2:16:50 PM EDT
Faster- Cable/IE5- Your work is appreciated! New icons cool.
Link Posted: 5/18/2001 2:16:55 PM EDT
Much better than it was. At one point last week I finally gave up trying to reply to a thread because it wouldn't load up the page. I know diddly squat about computers, but I was just curious....... When I hit this reply there were 8,186 threads and 105,185 replies and 106 pages of topics in the general discussion ALONE. All forums included there were almost 14 thousand six hundred topics. (14,600) Like I said I know nothing about computers other than Word, Outlook and Internet explorer. But would a site-wide spring cleaning of say 7 or 8 thousand of the older topics help the speed any? Free up some memory or bandwidth or whatever those topics are taking up? But anyway, good job with the revamp. I like it. M4Guy

Seems faster, but using a T1 and Cable. Like the new graphics.

Much faster for me. ADSL and Netscape 4.77. Good work guys... DanM
Link Posted: 5/18/2001 3:30:06 PM EDT
I don't like this. I used to be able to open another browser window, and browse other sites while waiting for pages to load, but now there's no time!! Thanks for the work, its great.
Link Posted: 5/18/2001 4:16:11 PM EDT
After all this time I have been trying to figure out what the hell is wrong with my PC, now you tell me it was the SITE???? Seriously, it is definately faster. Great job guys!!! [beer]
Link Posted: 5/18/2001 4:21:53 PM EDT
i was wondering myself what happened. i like the changes. i like the speed. now if you could only install a filter for smart-aleck responses to serious questions that sometimes trickle in to this particular forum (general discussion), hell, it would be perfect. keep up the good work fellas.
Link Posted: 5/18/2001 5:17:44 PM EDT
Much faster, this thing is clicking! Thanks!

Moving along nicely !!! Jay Arizona
Link Posted: 5/18/2001 5:55:23 PM EDT
Seems quick to me and I'm only connected at 46k.
Link Posted: 5/18/2001 5:59:47 PM EDT
Faster for me. It`s 7:00pm Pacific ST
Link Posted: 5/18/2001 6:44:23 PM EDT
Much better but still takes an unacceptably long time. Does the black background need to be reloaded every time a page changes? It that it?
Link Posted: 5/18/2001 6:55:01 PM EDT
OK, I'll pile on. It does seem more responsive now. Thanks and keep up the good work.
Link Posted: 5/18/2001 6:56:03 PM EDT
Yes, the speed is noticeable, even on my miserable 56K modem setup. Eric The Hun[>]:)]
Link Posted: 5/18/2001 7:04:24 PM EDT
It is much faster now! Kind of like pedal-to-the-metal speed. Checking out this site in my car today even made my car seem to roar even more. [8D] -RoadDog (beware of dogs wearing tin foil hats)
Link Posted: 5/18/2001 8:38:38 PM EDT
Everything is loading faster now. Thanks G.B.
Link Posted: 5/18/2001 8:43:13 PM EDT
It is noticeably faster! Great Job! John[heavy]
Link Posted: 5/18/2001 8:44:57 PM EDT
It was loading quick earlier this evening. Seems to have slowed considerably now.
Link Posted: 5/19/2001 6:45:18 AM EDT

Definitely faster. BUT also, I turn-off the viewing of images, and selectively open images. I am using IE 5.5 and a dial-up 56K modem. Of course response will differ thru out the day depending on the number of people accessing the board.
