Is it just me or is the comic site REALLY slow after it updates? I have to try multiple times to load the page, and quite often I have no choice but to try again later.

Yup. I open it up and let it chooch for a while. I assume it's a bunch of caching servers trying to get the new page.

Yep, in the last week or two I've had problems loading a new page. Once I do I can generally navigate around fairly easily for a while. But if I leave it alone it'll take a while to load when I come back.

It's not just a new page either. It happens when I try to look at the archives.

It seems fairly likely that it's everybody else ALSO trying to get the new page, including the caching servers.

I just figure that the whole of the internet descends upon the site the instant the comic goes up, causing the servers to grind to a halt.

Exactly. It's best to give it some time now that Howard is total star.

I will also chime in on slow loads.

It's been like this since basically a few weeks after the new site.

*taps foot*

To think that only a few months ago I often tried to create a new topic with a relevant title within the minute.

Welcome to the world after Net Neutrality. Slow loading times for comics are going to be the norm now forever.

I also am not seeing the slowness anymore. I'm pretty sure it was a purely local server issue for the comic, and it must have been fixed.

re-read my last post. The thread was inactive until then. And instead of reading my post the next person chose to inject politics into this thread.
