Forum is very very very fast

Postby roband » Mon Dec 23, 2013 9:29 am UTC

Like, taking split seconds to load each page.

That's on Firefox, win7, the same with all other websites. I've even installed extra toolbars to try and slow it down.

On Chrome, it's even faster!

I'm pressing "reply", expecting to get some time to think about what I want to say - then the page just appears!
So I end up typing stuff without thinking it through. Not the forum experience I really want to be having.

I might just see if I can employ lots of people in China to spam the forum with bots.

Upgrade to dial-up. Alleviates most speed problems.
Changes its form depending on the observer.

You know how much that would cost? I'm not paying to receive a service I was getting for free just a few days ago.

Remembers someone slowing down the Internet for an entire building once. Lasted several days. Never heard what they did. Assumes a lot of downloading. Could try downloading multiple large files simultaneously, deleting them, and re-downloading them. Fixes the issue temporarily.

Advertises free anti-virus programs on television. Have you tried one? Claims to offer faster computers. Slows everything down, in reality.

That is hysterical.
I love the quick computer.
You don't.

Your xkcd Forum became quicker.
Mine became slower, when it is there at all.

I will swap with you. I like the fast computer.
It is, just, fast enough, when it works correctly.

Too fast is when I have not thought of it yet and the computer offers it.

That is not a fast computer.
