I have noticed a substantial improvement in performance since the server upgrade a couple months ago (from a co-dedicated server to a fully dedicated server). Would like to hear of others experiences with WAB's speed performance since the upgrade. Is it faster, the same?

I don't know if it is faster than it used to be, but I find it loads WAY faster than any other website.

Ira's views are what I have experienced too!

Want to make sure :). If necessary, further hardware upgrades can be done quickly if and when needed. They would be about 5 minutes in duration as opposed to the mass DNS propagation of January when WAB was put on a new server.

I have always found it to be speedy. Some of the other fora I frequent are like walking through treacle!

I swear Glyn, every day my vocabulary increases a bit with you on the board. :) Treacle.. I don't think I could use that word in any context state-side, nobody would know what it means.

Ironduke,

For Christ sake, don't upgrade and put me in deep mental agony like the last time.

You all maybe computer wizards, but not me!

Treacle?

Remember the nursery rhyme - Half a pound of tuppeny rice?

Here it goes:


Half a pound of tuppeny rice
Half a pound of treacle
That's the way the money goes
Pop goes the weasel

Up and down the city road
In and out the Eagle
That's the way the money goes
Pop goes the weasel



The rhyme's about hatters in old London Tahn (guvnor). Tuppeny rice is hatmaker's felt, treacle is the glue. 'Pop goes the weasel' is a reference to pawning the fur used to make trim with, in order to get drunk on the profits... the city road being a prime street for pawnbrokers, and the Eagle being a pub at the other end where the hatters drank.

You will be relieved to hear, young Matt, that I make no charge for my missionary work:) (Like improving and uplifting terms and phrases for the poor benighted citizens of our former colonies). :biggrin: As a matter of fact it's been years since I sampled a generous portion of treacle pudding.:confused:
