Lately when I go garageglamour.com to log on I get a series of dialog boxes that say "unable to connect to rcm.amazon.com". I know we have to have ads to support GG, but isn't there some way to not delay access to GG if the server the ad link points to is down or slow?

according to RG, it's all about protectiing against hackers who have recently mounted al quaida-like attacks on GG and that it's going to go away when they migrate to new servers sometime in the unspecified future. i agree, tho, the wait is becoming interminable and, honestly, there's stuff i'd comment on or posts i want to look at and sometimes i just say "phuck it" and hit the "STOP" button in my browser and move along somewhere else.

GG has been so phuking slow lately that it's really annoying. I timed my loads the other night and I was averaging 22 seconds from the time I clicked until I got some thing to appear on my screen. Even on a T1, it's slower than hell. I'm ready ANY TIME for this upgrade. I'm really getting discouraged because I love hanging out here but it's getting to the point that I don't have time to wait for the damn pages to load. It takes me forever to get through one thread with just ten responses. Multiply that by the 30 or 40 new topics each night and another hundred posts and you see the problem.

Happy surfing....unfortunately the waves here are only a foot high and don't make for fast runs through the curls.

...remember back when the kickass computer was a 386 WITH a mathcopro? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

If you are experiencing the slowdowns (I don't seem to be...maybe cause I'm in Canada? The world still loves us. hehe) and are getting pissed off then maybe it's time for you to step back from the computer and go outside. Live a little without this technological grindstone. Get out there and shoot something...I mean "shoot" as in "photograph something"...preferably female and unclothed. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Good advice about getting out and shooting but for those times like here in Maine when it's 10 degrees with a -15 below zero wind chill, I want to be able to sit back and, um, chill a bit and check out the work on GG and learn how to do things better. When I am resigned to being indoors (because none of the girls I know want to get naked outside this time of year), I want to be able to check out the schtuff on GG quickly. It used to be much, much faster and then there was the trend to add all manner of superfluous bull**** like horoscopes, quotes of the day, comic of the day, and who knows what else, that I never use. I'd like to see this stay a site dedicated to glamour photography and not have other "stuff" that's not related. The home page is cluttered up enough. Gosh, perhaps I should make this a new topic. I have never posted a rant on GG before. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Anyway, the other modeling sites I visit fly through the pages and are much more top-heavy than GG. Inquiring minds have to ask, "WTF?".

Good day sir and happy shooting!

Mike

Don, you muckraker! hehehehe [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

I think it's caused by people with more than 5000 posts because it has overloaded the server with all of the messages. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

My best to you and yours!

386??? Wow, that was a vast improvement over a 8088 or a 286 (I still have a few "old" machines if anyone is interested in buying a few antiques). Not to mention a 300 baud dial-up line... talk about a wait. Try it sometime with a "party line" on an indian reservation and you will appreciate even a slow T1 connection...
