TTalk is much faster now...

Do yall notice that TTalk is at least 5x a fast as it was? I have 2 computers that I go to TTalk daily, 1 has DSL and the other has T3 and even with a fast connection the page still took 2 mins to load and lagged big time while browsing threads! But now it is back like the "good ole" days when TTalk wasnt as popular and loads much quicker! I noticed that the address is now an IP...did TTalk finally get its own server? If so what did ya get? Well I just wanted to see if you guys are experiencing the same thing? Keep up the GREAT work,

Garrett

Agree, much better.

I don't agree.

I wonder what changes they made.

- faster drives in the 10k+ rpm range?

- change connection speed to the internet?

- add more legal bull?

- more RAM?

it's still a good site though regardless but the way it looks needs to be improved though if they are going to get more sponsors.

Yes,

It's now usable again. It got too slow for me.

Well, why don't you ask? :D We've moved the site to a new shared server with 2/3rds less traffic. In all our testing, speed has improved measurably. TT'ers, getting speed is easy, just throw LOTS of cash at it. Do you ever wonder why eBay or Yahoo are so fast? About 50+ web servers, 150 IT people on staff, and a multi-million dollar IT budget! As we grow revenue, additional investments in performance will be made. Our next goal is a dedicated server, just for TT! At our current pace, this shouldn't be long.

We have been in dev mode on a new look, feel, and functionality since we took over the site (October 2001). It is being built from the ground up, as we are expecting continued exponential growth. Can you believe when we took the site over there were 2,400 members and now we have over 7,500? Our new architecture needs to support this growth and the out of the box stuff such as vbulletin/vportal would only work for the short run.

In terms of advertisors (what you call sponsors), yes, they may be attracted at first by a prettier face, however, trust me, return on their investment is what they are interested in. TT has it were she counts! :)

I'd like to get more info like this out to the group on a more regular basis, however, I never has less that a hundred things going on at once. Thanks for hanging with us and for making TT the net's best place to talk about and learn about 4-strokes.

Cheers!
