I have spent the afternoon tweaking the settings and caching of the server. This is the first real optimization I have done to the new software. Up until today everything was at the defaults.

I also went through the ads and placed all non Google Adsense ads in iframes, meaning these ads will not slow down the loading of the SatelliteGuys content. I have also placed the ads in places where they should not effect your use of SatelliteGuys, so they are out of the way yet in places which I believe will be good locations for revenue generation.

So with that said... the question now is how is the speed?

Pub Members and Supporting Founders will ultimately see the best speeds, but in my tests from other test accounts things look great from here.

Tell me what you are seeing. :D

This site has been, and continues to be the baseline or reference that I judge my end speed and compare other sites to as well. When I notice a slow down here I first check my junk before saying anything and I usually find something amiss on my side. I am glad to once again see the page load information at the bottom of the pages. I wish other sites I visit provided this information. Being hyper sensitive or critical the only thing I don't care for is the stuff on the right side of the page while looking at the Pub Forum Page. Nothing to get upset or fuss over though. (jmo)

Last but not least, I wish other sites I visit had an owner/administrator with Scott's knowledge and steadfast commitment to excellence. One hell of a combination!

Yesterday it WAS slow.

We upgraded our PHP and the PHP configuration was the defaults. I had to go through and optimize that... and then today I optimized the caching.

Now when I click on a page I have a fully rendered screen in less then 2 seconds. :D

That's how it was on my old clunker under vBulletin. Now, it takes... Let me time it. 6 seconds to render, and another 4 more waiting for cdn.satelliteguys.us to finish with something off-screen. Hmmm.

Anything coming from cdn.satelliteguys.us is static files. Images, html, and javascript.

I have things set now so the last thing you download is the javascripts, so that is what you are seeing loading at the end from our cloud servers. :)

That's about the same as this Vista machine. I guess it's time for a new computer. :)

I just timed it exactly and it's around 5 or 6 seconds total on this Vista machine. This machine is clean and tweaked. I've got a Windows 8.1 machine on order that should be really, really fast. :)
