use.perl problems

[ #35523 ]

Is it just me or has use.perl.org been real flaky lately? Seems like the connection times out about half the time.

Loading... please wait.
  • The site has felt slow to me since the new discussion system appeared (and which I immediately disabled). For whatever reason, loading something off the images server is very, very slow.

    • I already wrote about this in a journal entry, months ago. What use.perl.org is getting of the images server is 500k of Javascript: the Yahoo YUI library.

      You cannot convince me otherwise, I will always feel that using such a huge monolithic library is a bad idea.
      • I don't personally have a problem with the large JS libraries. They should be getting cached and I like the new discussion system anyway.

        My problem is when use.perl.org times out and is unreachable.
        • They should be getting cached
          Everybody keeps saying that. Yet I do notice that my browser downloads them anew every few days.
  • Timeouts left, right and center yesterday. Hasn't been that bad today though.
    • But it's much, much worse today (1 day later). At worst, the site has even been unreachable for over 15 minutes.

      It's a really bad day when loading use.perl.org is much slower than loading Perlmonks... ;-)
  • Too bad the site is made with a scripting language, otherwise it could handle more than a couple dozen users.
