About tiny url..


Short and simple..Redirecting twice as such, takes twice as long..Remember that..

Re: About tiny url..


Hi Magic,

Technically, it doesn't take twice as long, because after the true destination is reached, the image itself still needs to be downloaded.

I happen to know the issue you're referring to, since I am the coder you were told about. Not only are there only two tinyurl images on the new topic page (non-animated background images, at that), but that point is moot because a server-side redirect before displaying an image will not effect the speed at which your cursor will move when you type.

Watching videos or listening to music on your computer as you're trying to type, however, will cause that problem, since these types of media take up a lot of valuable resources and can slow down your computer if you don't have the extra resources to spare. If there are a lot of animated graphics on the page, this can contribute to the problem as well, even if one or the other by itself doesn't cause it.

Moving this to "New," since it's a statement and not a question.

Re: About tiny url..


Now, this is interesting..I still have the same problem..I defragged my puter, had no music, no vids on, no zip, and I still got that...

What I do see, is the addy of like the tiny url, and often, tinypic so I am not convinced of anything...

Why this is, now it does have my puzzled then as I do not get this on yahoo, msn, any news sites..I also defrag reg and delete all my temp files, etc on a regular basis...


So, since I have not run into this problem but only on runboard, I am curious as to know why that is then...

I have used both the Crome Google browser, and the IE 7...far as the firefox, that is worthless as far as I am concerned..

Re: About tiny url..


Am I just dense tonight or am I missing something here? If it is just a statement I would have put it in General Comments but for some reason I get the hint that there is a genuine problem that is being talked around and I wish I could help but have no idea what or where the problem is.

Magic, are you talking about your Runboard? If so then your CSS shows 17 errors and that can mess everything up no matter what browser you use.

Re: About tiny url..


I think their is a problem with their servers..You have so many who do use that service, and it is dragging big time on those two places..

I have been to a few other message forums, not runboard to see if I could find the same, and couldn't find much of anything, although I did not spend alot of time checking out the forums either..

Now, if it is not with tiny pic or tiny url.. wonder what the h it could be, I am open to suggestions since I know it is not my puter..

Re: About tiny url..


You didn't say if this was related to your board or something else but if it is your board the first thing I would do is fix the CSS.

Re: About tiny url..


Pastor is did seem to start, or at least MP noticed it most on my site.
Well you know what a techno turd I am, so I had LG go through my code (I'm using a modified "winter skin" that Lesigner Girl and Skokey made)......she said it all looked good. emoticon
