FYI - 12/27/2010 11:00am EST - Posting to forum is still exhibiting a noticeable delay from where I'm sitting. I'm counting 5-12 seconds from hitting <enter> to getting an updated screen returned. Even more if I include an image. I'm guessing it has to do with creating new records in MySQL since subsequent edits to a post run at close to the old forum speeds, and only bog down big time if you start adding, deleting, or re-sequencing image uploads.
I did actually have DC lock-up a few times after I swapped out different images on a post I made. I hit save, realized I had the wrong image, went in and changed it, immediately
re-saved...and got a freeze up.
Once I closed FF and logged back in, the post was completely missing the image in one instance, and still displaying the old image in the second. After that, however, I was able to correct the problem and get the changes to post both times. So it seems like it's something new-record or speed related if you try to edit too quickly. It doesn't happen if I change something that's been up for a half-minute or so. And it doesn't seem to be doing it any more.
(Link or anti-spam/malware scanning possibly having something to do with it?)
No big hu-hu. Just thought you'd like to know.
