Lori Of course, just as I'm starting a new topic, GR is coming up pronto, but good god the last weeks it's been at such a crawl I sometimes just give up. It's not happening for any other connection, but I'm curious if it's some glitch between my computer and GR - is it HAL telling me to get off the stupid computer and go read a book?!?

Meen (meendee) | 1733 comments It's been pretty laggy for me today.

Meen (meendee) | 1733 comments For example, that comment took FOREVER to post.


message 4: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) very ... slow


Jackie "the Librarian" | 8993 comments Slow for me, too, Lori. I figured it was related to the Facebook/Twitter crash last week.

I understand we have Putin to blame for that - the Russians were going after some blogger who had written about the Chechen/Russian conflict from last year.

sigh

Félix (habitseven) Hello, 911? Hey, Goodreads is like, really, really slow tonight. Yup, uh huh. No ... Goodreads.com. Yeah, that's it. Hello?

See how messing with free speech messes up THE WORLD?!





message 8: by Lori (new)

Lori Hahaha, yeah let's blame PUTIN!

Funny, it seems like it's been forever, but it's possible the lag did start last Tuesday, when those pesky Russians went after that blogger. Shows how much my life revolves around GR....eeek!

And yes, GR has been really, really slow.

Rita Can anyone tell me why he was walking around shirtless. I have just one, well thought out comment on that. (Sally, did I use the comma correctly?) :)

Ew.

It worked with me, anyway...

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments Just slow for me, 7:47AM, CST, Monday, August 10th. You mean I'm actually gonna have to work today, with GR slow and all that?

It was down for service this morning, but doesn't seem any faster now.

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10825 comments It's very offputting.

Ladies and gentlemen, we don't exist.


Jackie "the Librarian" | 8993 comments I had the longest wait for Goodreads to post a review a little while ago. I crossed my fingers, and had one of those "please don't eat my golden prose!" panics while waiting for the page to reappear.
Whew!

Knarik we all became ghosts!


message 21: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) Boo!

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments "please don't eat our golden prose" could be another TC slogan.

Thanks Knarik!

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10825 comments WTFork is up WITH THE ADS!!!!??!!?????

GR, I'm getting very irritated with you. >:-\

They're horrific. And GR has enabled some shitty thing that makes my mouse click on the ad when I'm trying for "unread topics".


Jackie "the Librarian" | 8993 comments I am totally HATING the ads that take over when I'm trying to click on a thread.
NOT cool!


message 32: by Heidi (new)

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10825 comments I'll bet it's why GR's been slow for the past few weeks - they've been working on getting that stoopidhead function up and running. Jerks.

PS, Otis we love you.


message 34: by Heidi (last edited Aug 12, 2009 04:46PM) (new)

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10825 comments Otis, if you're reading this, I'm SERIOUSLY unhappy about the new ads function... ESPECIALLY since you added it without giving us, your loyal and regular users, a heads up. Hullo.... courtesy?!! Friendly customer service. Rude.


Jackie "the Librarian" | 8993 comments Aaaaaand, GR is super slow again today. :(


message 36: by Lori (new)

Lori Adblock comes in useful, and I've blocked all pop-ups.


Jackie "the Librarian" | 8993 comments I have ads blocked at home, but I can't at work, because I can't download the adblocker onto my work computer.
Bah. :(

Sally (mrsnolte) | 17320 comments Mod
Some of these ads are getting through my popup blocker! Grrrrrr.....


message 39: by smetchie (new)

smetchie | 4034 comments Hey that just happened to me too Sally! I usually never get pop-ups then BAM.

I don't have them,too. Maybe for the same reason.




message 41: by Knarik (new)

Knarik (:


message 42: by Heidi (new)

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10825 comments OMMFG! THOSE ADS ARE POPUP BLOCKER PROOF!!! I DESPISE THEM.

Félix (habitseven) Me too.
