Question Pricegrabber widget.. slow loading nvnews

Is it just me ( and my ISP ) or does the little Pricegrabber price list slow the frontpage load to seahorse like speeds, been averaging about 18-15 sec's to load the page because of that thing. Any workarounds for that?

same has been happening here. i think it's because it's not being hosted at nvnews.net. the problem is though, the rest of the page wont load until that is finished loading :'(

edit: slows the forums down a lot for me, even sometimes it will give a timed out error and refuse to load the rest of the page.

Yes, Mike is aware of this but like Kamel says it's not the nV News server at issue but Pricegrabber's.

I personally believe that us americans are unable to do so because osama.

People out there in our nation don't have that, And I believe that our education like such as south africa and such as the Iraq.

everywhere "such as". And I believe our education should help the US should help the south africa and the iraq and the asian countries so we can build up our future.

I was about to post something about this... Would it be possible to pull it onto your server till they get this solved, or something? It's putting a bit of a delay on the loading of every forum page...

Loads instantaneously for me. I wonder if it might also be browser specific? Or if there are updated needed to make it load faster?

FWIW, I love the add-on

Hopefully you'll have more things on a rotating basis showing in the price list eventually but I love the current setup.

OK, thanks saz, that might help narrow things down for all of us. What browser do you have, and what browser do other's have.

It's lagging up the load of the web site on Mozilla 1.7.2 here...

I think it is brower specific Sazar. IE loads it fine with no problems or wait, while FireFox slows down and has to load up that section first.

By George, I think you guys got it. Best I can guess, it must have something built in that uses a feature present in the Mozilla/IE code base (a tad annoyingly) which IE doesn't support... Course IE 6 is the older browser.

THX, until this gets resolved, I can just use IE to browse here...got both browsers on my comp

It is not the pricegrabber ads that was slowing us down it was the E3 video's. A forum had linked to them and they were being downloaded at a large volume. I had to take them off the server for a while.

i can provide a mirror with a 60gb/month quota if you like. it wont be able to handle all of the traffic, but it may illeviate some load.
