I’ve got a ton of ram but I am getting some funny issues on and off with image loading on this website over the last one week I think. I’m on safari on mac. Often the problem self resolves after 30 seconds.
I switched to Waterfox from Safari for Windows. Safari wasn’t bad, but, Apple stopped the development for Windows and weren’t ever going to do a 64 bit version. Waterfox seemed to be the only 64 bit browser other than IE that I could find.
Is it wrong to be disappointed that you don’t have an issue? It’s that “Me too!” thing!
Some of the more potent anti virus software can eat up memory, also, some of them will have scanning software in them which can needlessly slow things down. Maybe an update for them kicked in and messed things up!? AVG’s link scanner was better at slowing things down than it was at doing much else. I recently switched from that to Microsoft Security Essentials and have definitely noticed a speed improvement.
I just updated my Nvidia drivers after discovering that videos on YouTube all show in a split screen with a green line in the center. I discovered it’s caused by the latest Adobe Flash update (only in FF, btw), and the options are to uninstall it (which is a major undertaking), and roll back, or update Nvidia drivers.
Not really anything to do with DAZ, but just in case anyone else is seeing this too. And although I won’t swear to it…. this site seems slightly faster now. It could be my imagination, and I didn’t have issues with DAZ’s site before, so I doubt it’s a solution.
Who else among us has Nvidia graphics cards!? I have an ATI/AMD and whichever versions of Flash I installed when I switched to Waterfox were, I imagine, pretty recent and I’ve not had any issues anywhere, quite the reverse in fact.
Got to admit though, I definitely did experience issues with graphics cards and websites earlier on, but long before I had DS or laptops. There might be something in it. It could be down to graphics cards and updates for certain AV software. YouTube is fine for me, probably the best I’ve seen it.
...hmm only have 4GB in 32 bit and save for my spotty connectivity from home (due to the fact I am partially in a Wi-Fi “shadow”), haven’t experienced any issues with the site like others are having. Again I’m still on FF 15.
I have an EVGA GeForce 210 video card ( 512 meg video ram), 3 gigs of ram on a 32-bit system. Fast reply loads quickly, post reply or moving from forum to foum, or page of a thread, moves slowly. Sometimes about 30-60 seconds, sometimes up to 2 minutes. The 2 minutes is rare.
Have you had issues anywhere else other than this site or is it just here? It’s possible that there is a bug in the Daz code somewhere that Nvidia cards don’t like. I’ve heard of several people with NVidia cards having viewport issues in Poser.
If it were wholly a Firefox issue then wouldn’t the same thing happen on other sites? Surely it just loads whatever code happens to be on that page? Waterfox uses Firefox code and I haven’t had any problems at all.
