LOADING TIMES

In view of the interest in speed I measured the load time to start a "Miscellaneous Trivia" quiz. There are over 4500 quizzes in the section after eliminating the ones that I have already done.

I wonder what other folks times might be. Mine (on a network line) was (you guess) 1 sec, 2 secs. 3 secs. or 51 seconds. Right! some folks can do two word rounds in that time. I suspect that a dial up line would have taken a working person's whole shift. I think that having over 2000 quizzes in a category is a negative. Perhaps the category can be broken down by date, etc. so that one can comfortably try older quizzes without scheduling a bathroom break between quizzes.

Wow. I will look into getting a new computer.

I wasn't sure if you meant bringing up the title page of the quiz or the first question of the quiz. I have no idea how fast my connection is, but I do have a cable connection. For me it was 1-2 seconds (if that - really it seemd almost instantly) for each of those functions. After getting the cable connection I would never go back to anything else.

I tried several from the latest General Trivia 'new' list.
Averaged 25/30 seconds to get the full question title page up - i.e. ready to click for question 1.
That's on dial-up at 32,000 bps connecting speed.

My timing is for the following excercise. Go to General Trivia, then to the back page then click on "Miscellaneous Trivia (4,837)" and see how long it takes to see all 4,837 less the ones you have already taken. It was now 34 seconds, quite an improvement. Probably acceptable.

It took 27 seconds on my oldest computer, a 233 from 1997, on the same DSL connection, so a new computer does help.

My new log time to load that page is 6 seconds. Same computer. Quite an improvement. thanks to Justin's new system, I think.

45 seconds.
Dial-up via cable.
Nominal connecting speed around 60,000bps, actual 32,000
