Need help sorting out how to use 23? Or have you discovered one of those nasty bugs?

Linking to photos from web site

Ken Walker   March 25, 2012, 10:26 PM

I have been linking to photos that I collect on 23 in the club web site I run at for quite a while and it has worked well. But starting a few weeks ago, it became very slow. I am told by my service provider that it is because of the response time from 23.

Our club has only 30 members so I think the load on 23 from serving these photos is not an issue. I have asked and had no complaint about that from 23.

Do others use it in this way? Comments or suggestions are welcome.

I think this is saying it is 11 seconds for the first load.

Hi Ken,

How does the site load data from 23?

We use an img src tag like this:

Suddenly in the last few hours the delays have vanished and the site is working smartly. Is there a way to know what changed?

Steffen Fagerström Christensen Team 23   March 29, 2012, 02:01 PM

Didn't really change anything on our end -- so wondering what can explain this?

Ken Walker   March 29, 2012, 02:44 PM

The company providing the host says they made some changes and that seems to have fixed it. Working well now! Problem, which was not at the 23 end of things, is resolved.
