Our recent problems with Crazy Domains is over.

We're Back, Better, Faster, Stronger than ever!

 

Intermittent session timeouts should be a thing of the past! Site Downtime should now be minimal!

We have a Dedicated Server:

 

My Friends, I am sorry for the recent problems. We should now be able to continue, and I would like to apologize to Vidura, Prometheus, Zanzal and others with recent Threads that have been disrupted.

My Friends, lets continue and show the world what's possible when we work as a Team!

Life is always better with a fast processor.. my computer has a 3960X processor, 16 gig DDR3, 2 Kingston Hyper X SSD's, three 2 terabyte back up and storage on a Gigabyte Motherboard.  unfortunately my Asus board Died so i had to use the back up.

My server/Firewall is an 8 core C 2758 Atom proc with 32 Gig DDR 3 mem with three 2 terabyte HD's.

Thanks Chris, life can be much better when one is dedicated to one's conviction.

Regards,

Marathonman

My Friends,

Thank You for all your support!

WOW, Aboveunity.com is amazingly fast and so much easier to use now! It has that feel, fast, stable, and reliable now, I just didn't feel that before! I am a very happy man, to go from a bad situation with endless problems, to a fast stable and WOW Website is great!

Thank You all! I really appreciate your patience and support!

Loads pretty fast and I don't have to log in again every time I try to post. OnTheNet seems to be much better than Crazy Domains.

Load time for 493 KB landing page could be improved, as the connection negotiation process seems a little slow (the first byte was delivered at 1.105 seconds, first-paint was at 2.769 seconds and the page had a total rendering time of 5.2 seconds due to slow connect on loading images).

You could also look at compressing the code... the images seem to be compressed pretty well, the code not so much.

You've got 13 requests out to gravatar.com, not sure what those are for. Seems to be a bunch of small images of various geometric designs. Doing away with those would lower load time by ~0.707 seconds.

You've also got 9 calls out to revolvermaps.com, which is a javascript geoIP widget showing the connections on a rotating globe... you might nix that to reduce load time by ~1.798 seconds.

So you could reduce load time by ~2.505 seconds, bringing total rendering time down to a super-fast ~2.695 seconds.

That'd also lower the server load and bandwidth, so if you're on a bandwidth-limited hosting plan (where you pay more if you go over a certain bandwidth total usage) that'd be a boon.

Hey Prometheus,

Thanks, excellent suggestions!

I think the actual page is loading much faster than before. External Domain requests are always dependant on may other factors. Hard to regulate those factors.

However, the reported 5.2 seconds is far too slow. I will look into connection load.

   Chris

 

P.S: After a little testing, I am getting around 2.6 seconds, full load time. Is anyone else getting slow load times?

Use F12 for developer tools. Go to performance and reload the page. Look for start, Blue in Edge, Load, to page finish.

Chris posted this 08 December 2018

My Friends,

I am no web developer, however, I do try to know a bit about it, even if I do fumble through it now and again.

F12 on your keyboard will give you developer Tools. You should see a "Performance" Tab. If you hit the Green Play button, and then refresh the page.

Once the page is fully loaded, give it a little longer, just to make sure, then hit the Red Stop button. Then analyse the data. Look for the HTTP Request: (/) - This is the initial request. It looks like this:

 

 

 

The time is around 4.5 seconds, where we refreshed the page. Now look at the page Paint, the last one, after the Layout and before the Garbage Collection. It will look something like this:

 

 

The time is around: 6.6 Seconds. So we have a page load time of approximately: 6.6 - 4.5 = 2.1 Seconds. The time will vary, it may be longer sometimes compared with others. But, please let me know, this is important to me.

Critically, we have fixed the Session Timeouts. I was getting so annoyed with that problem!

Please keep me updated on how this is going for you, on your end!

   Chris

 

P.S: Prometheus or Zanzal may be able to provide an easier way to do this assessment of Page Load Time.

Chris posted this 08 December 2018

P.S:

Mostly for Prometheus, can you try the pages again please? 

I have done a Server Connection Speed Test and its pretty good for Australia:

 

 

Now, of course, other countries have many Gigabits per/second. So we are slow in comparison. However these speeds should be very good for My Website. Its only small and most of the content is Text/PDF/Images.

Refreshing the page will show a faster load time, since some of the code is loaded from the browser cache. Your best bet is to flush your cache and load the page from the server to get a good idea of the total rendering time.

Not sure if you need the forced reflows, but if not, doing away with them will decrease rendering time. I count 11 forced reflows.

Look in your Performance Report for any red triangles on the upper-right corners of the timeline boxes. You might have to zoom in to see them.

There are several website testers online. Here's one I ran:

Hey Prometheus,

Yes, thanks for pointing that out. Perhaps I should put some time aside and try to resolve some of those little issues soon!

Issues aside, its faster and more stable now for you?

   Chris

 

P.S: Gravitar are profile images I believe. This is third party software. I only modified an original package as you already know.

Prometheus posted this 08 December 2018

Yes, faster and more stable.

I was surprised when I got home from work today and I was still logged in! Before, I had to log in again due to the intermittent time-out problem. Thus far, no problems on the new server.

So far, I am very happy, very happy!

Hey Jagau,

Awesome, great to hear about your progress!

Chris posted this 28 December 2018

My Friends,

I am absolutely loving the stability and speed!

We have had a lot of problems, email, session timeouts, posts being lost, slow problems.

Getting rid of Crazy Domains is the best thing I could have done! What a waste of money, time and it cost us members also!

Thanks for your patience, but we now have our result!

The great Nikola Tesla:

Ere many generations pass, our machinery will be driven by a power obtainable at any point of the universe. This idea is not novel. Men have been led to it long ago go by instinct or reason. It has been expressed in many ways, and in many places, in the history of old and new. We find it in the delightful myth of Antheus, who drives power from the earth; we find it among the subtle speculations of one of your splendid mathematicians, and in many hints and statements of thinkers of the present time. Throughout space there is energy. Is this energy static or kinetic? If static, our hopes are in vain; if kinetic - and this we know it is for certain - then it is a mere question of time when men will succeed in attaching their machinery to the very wheelwork of nature.
