I've noticed a ton of slowdown in the past two days, almost to the point where I can't do anything. I loaded a 10-minute video on YouTube before the cockpit page loaded, which I had clicked on two minutes before I started loading the vid >.>
I'm using FF, updated to whatever the last update for version 2 was. I'm on a 3 mb connection, and after I hit the 'ol "reply button" it took 37 seconds for the page on which I actually write my post to come up.
EDIT: I turned it off, and it sped up greatly, but it's still slower than it used to be. It still took me 9 seconds to load up the edit page.

It doesn't make a big difference whether this is turned off or on for me.
Aye, seems better today than the past few. We're already at PHP and mySQL 5 and looking at a few optimisations we can make, especially in the DB area. The theory at the moment is that it's something with disk access slowing things down so much.
I'm a total newbie here, i've only been here a couple of days but i've noticed the pages are very slow to load, slower than any other website i frequent. (i'd call it vomit inducingly slow).
I'm using FF 220.127.116.11 and I have cable.
I will try turning off the JS thing and see how it goes...
Handle's Gideon Bodnari but I'm posting from work and don't have my password here, so meh.
Anyhoo, I've found that it takes me forever to load when I enter or exit my ship, move between rooms, or move between position and cockpit view aboard ship. When I'm off-ship I can do things like build, manipulate my party, scan, and move around normally (almost faster than normally). Is it possible the slow-down has something to do with entities? (Honestly, what I know about coding could be inscribed in large print on the head of a pin so I apologize if what I'm thinking is utterly impossible.)
The slowdown that I and most people are reporting is global across the site, and it seems to be occurring before page content begins to load, which is what leads the devs to suspect hardware. More information is still welcomed.
I dare you to make less sense.
Are you a newbie, or do you have access to newbies?
