    Slow loading

    For some time now I've noticed that loading a thread has been taking more time. Don't know why I never thought of this before, but I watched the lower left of the browser window today to see what was loading and I was surprised to see this, "waiting for mystatus.skype" (or something very close as I did not write it down.

    What's up with this? I checked and I have now skype name posted in my profile.

    I'm not seeing any slow downs myself. Did you just load Skype or a new version?

    EDIT: I did just get it...looks like skype's status service is having delays...will see if we can turn off the feature for now.

    I don't think it's Blue Host Rob. It appears to be Skype, which has been having issues for the past week or so. On the posts for each user there is an icon to show if someone is online. There is a script that runs for skype to see if the person is online. It appears that the skype server isn't responding and delays the load of the page. I'm looking for a way to shut off the IM status to keep it from occurring.

    Yes. Much better.

    Except now it's hanging up on "tickers.myfitnesspal". What the heck is that?

    Ok, I've been holding steady on weight anyway...got rid of that from my sig.

    As my wife says, "I haven't gained any weight this holiday season...That's like losing 10 lbs right there."

    Zipping along nicely now, thank you very much!

    The aggravating parts was when it was taking a long time to load and I did not realize it I would start to scroll the page only to have it bounce from post to post till it was done loading.

    Well, I suspect it's your connection speed. Other users still have the fitness charts in their signatures, so will probably still see some of that depending on who's posted.
