Much more betterer...

Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Friday, January 22, 2010

So it was a frustrating day Wednesday into Thursday when something here went kablooey...

COUCH NOTE: OK, so I went to google (NO I will not capitalize it) to find a visual for Kablooey...and found these two...


Now how is that KABLOOEY???? I am sure JAY of "Cynical B**tard" will be able to tell us all, since he is a expert on cheerleaders, and sexy young Asians, and well..unfortunately he is becoming an expert on Luke Wilson too...but we will not hold that against him.

SO, all ended up being caused by a stat counter I had installed about a year or so ago...It was the second one on the site, but I was trying to verify the other counter...any whoodle, I kept seeing that "waiting for 088 dot free-counter dot co dot uk" message on the lower left of my Firefox window, so typed it into my address box and was told that it was leading me to the server for this stat service but it never connected.

So...over to my html and delete the code and open a new tab and HECK-A-DOODLE The Couch loaded right up.

As a matter of fact LU' of "PA Greenery" told me The Couch has not loaded that fast in like forever. (or maybe since I added that second counter?)

So, does it load faster for you?

I sent an email to a couple of people who have told me they can not come to comment because the page never loads for them...I am hopeful this fixes that issue...

So...I am feeling if I can just solve the wireless printer issue at the house...but that is a whole other issue!

Have a grand weekend all....

  2. I loaded just fine this morning. And yes, Wednesday morning, it never did load, or at least I gave up before it did. Glad it's fixed. Have a great week-end.

  3. Ken Says:
  4. You popped right up this time Vinny. Way betterer.

  5. Travis Cody Says:
  6. I don't have any empirical evidence to support this statement, but it sure does seem like the page is loading faster.

  7. DRILLERAA: Thank you Sir and you do the same

    MICKEY-T: I always strive for betterer for my Couch-sitters

  12. Dana Says:
  13. So Vinny ... I always hated the fact that I had to wait FOREVER for your blog to load. I am a happy woman today!

    But really? TWO stat counters? Isn't that just a wee bit over the top??

  14. Mimi Lenox Says:
  15. It DID load faster for me tonight. Way to go!
    Kablooey pretty much describes my week to a T.

    It's funny how one little piece of code will mess up your whole blog.
