All right, what have you guys changed?

Monday, 6:00 pm CST. Every time I do something in DZ.com, the cpu cycles max out and response is sluggish. See the attached performance chart.

Have you guys changed something?

My internet browser - I'm using old-fashioned Netscape.

Just tried Internet Explorer, and it works just fine there.
Problem seems limited to Netscape.

Thursday, 1 pm, CST. CPU consumption and response time back to normal.
I changed nothing on my computer before or after all this started.
What have you guys done? Fess up!

I don't think anything changed on this side. There were no notes from management to us about changes.

It's just as Phreezone says. Nothing has changed on Dropzone. Not that I am aware of.

if you really have 128MB of memory, that can be a problem in itself. It's simply not enough in today's resource intensive environment.

Yep, it's about an 8-year-old computer with not much memory or hard drive space per today's standards. But it limps along pretty well most of the time, just like me.

I think you have just identified your problem. Trying to use website(s) built to the 2010-ish technology while replying on something that was mediocre at best in 2002 :)

time to upgrade.

Switching to a Linux like Puppy Linux might also be an option.

Had the same thing happen to me (3Ghz Quad core, 4Gb RAM), so I don't think that's the problem.

The fact that it was something that came and went in just a couple of days indicates it's not a problem inherent in the architecture - because that would make it a full-time problem. The transient nature seems to indicate that there is some outside influence at play.

Roger that.
I am using a Win7 with 4GB ram and 2.4GHz CPU, no problems.

I am also using Firefox with Adblocker - are both of you guys ?
If not, it could be the ads sucking up the CPU cycles.

That's possible, though in my case .mil is pretty good about ad-blocking.
