Does the site feel slow and buggy?

I find it difficult to read posts and respond these days. Is it just me or has the site gotten buggy? My laptop also seems to be working really hard when I am on the site. Has anybody else had the same experience?

I am finding it difficult to do much, let alone respond to a post or post something myself these days.

Turn off your javascript and that will do wonders!

Yes, it's the ads.

Adblock plus for Firefox.

Post technical difficulties in the correct subforum.

Yea, just noticed that.

Anyway,

Hope this is not a T/J but did not want to start a new thread.

I use ad-block (works wonders) but also have a problem with TAM slowing down. I use an OLD laptop with windows XP (remember that?). Hey, still works perfect! Recently TAM has been sending a script that cripples my laptop. Have to restart every time.

Anyone have knowledge how to stop accepting scrips in windows XP?

(Please don't say just replace laptop, that's my last resort).

If it's on a network you risk not only infecting that pc but others too. How old is the laptop? Windows 10 pro can run on just about anything, and you can purchase an OEM windows 10 pro license for under $10 on Ebay, I've upgraded at least a dozen pc's. You might need to purchase some RAM but that's usually pretty cheap also.

It's an old Dell Inspiron from around 2006 that refuses to die. Got it new. Has a blistering fast 2gigs RAM. I don't have the heart to get rid of it while it still works.

I have a kick butt home PC designed for gaming, has no problem handling TAM (or anything else for that matter).
Just wondering if scripting can be disabled for winXP.

No clue. But again, for under $10 you can upgrade the operating system so you won't have that issue and you'll have a much more secure pc and network.

Re: Does the site feel slow and buggy?

Very much so and this is the only site. I have a old iPad model MC770LL. It has gotten to the point since the site upgraded that I have lost functionality on the site itself. My like button does not work nor dies the submit button on posting. To get a post to post I have to use the "preview post" button and then use the "submit reply" button.

How to deal with an unrepentant spouse: an Irish person can tell a person to go to hell and have them so excited at the prospect they demand to know when, where the train is leaving and how to get a ticket. Then offer them a loan to get the ticket and a ride to the train station. Be Irish

Re: Does the site feel slow and buggy?

I'm running Windows 10 pro with an I7 processor and 16 GB of Ram. If you're not computer savvy, this is a top of the line pc, they don't get much faster than this. I haven't had any issues with the site being slow, until this morning. I was having an issue with my wireless mouse "right clicking" not being responsive in Firefox so after reading about possible causes, I temporarily disabled Adblock Plus- a free Add-on that removes most Ads from the browser. Immediately the page loads on TAM slowed to a crawl, some wouldn't load at all and if they did, they would scroll slowly to the point of it being too much trouble to even bother trying to read them.

It would be nice if the Forum Administrators would take some of these complaints into account and do something about it for the good of the members especially those that are only to help and support others.

Until and unless that happens, people if you cannot upgrade your computer to a faster machine, then the first thing you need to do is disable Ads using an adblocker such as the one I described above.

For the slower PCs theres a whole bunch of other things you can do to speed things up, as others have suggested disabled JavaScript. Also try a different antivirus especially if you're using AVG which is a known memory hog, and check your startup programs (including the icons in the lower right hand corner of the Windows taskbar) and shut down any programs that are not needed. Run CC cleaner to remove temporary and left over files, and run a malware scan using Malwarebytes.

If you do all of those things you just might see an improvement.

I have windows XP on my desktop. Use Opera browser (which has an adblock program) along with AdblockPlus and have few problems. Used to use Firefox but when it upgraded it stopped working for my XP.
Ele says the site will be using a new server later this year.

I also have a laptop with Windows 7 and AdblockPlus and it never has any problems with TAM that I've noticed.

Re: Does the site feel slow and buggy?

I find the site unusable without addblock. I'm happy for TAM to get advertising money but if they put up so many invasive adds that the site is unusable, people are going to block.

If there is a completely anonymous way to pay for using the site, I'd be happy to pay. That would basically mean mailing physical cash.
