It's a very impressive site, Jeremy, with lots of excellent work in all three galleries.

I very much like the elegant simplicity and lack of clutter of the site.


I hope our resident Website Maven Chris_T will take a look at it.

Jeremy, I tried all three galleries and got a blank screen with each one. Anyone else having the same problem?

It was loading forever and I gave up after about 1 minute.

Firefox 3.6 under Vista.

Sorry - I was making some DNS and URL forwarding changes - not sure if that affected access to the site or not.

Here's the new main site address - try through the front door now that it is open and see what happens ...

Runs fine and quickly here… Some very nice work, Jeremy. I haven't had the time to see all the galleries in detail but so far, I love what I see.

The site worked fine for me as well.

FWIW: Firefox 3.5.7

I could get to the main page.  Clicked on places and I'm not quite 3/4's up the loading bar on the image at the 10 minute point.  But the front page is cool.  The navigation page has a nice image.  The site looks clean.  Nice layout.

Does it load all the images?  I'll let it load if it does.

Looking at the tracert I do not think the net is happy between here and there.  This is showing there are more than 30 hops between here and there.  I can't imagine that is correct.  The first 11 are quick.

Loading the main page (fully) and then clicking on the people link and having the first photos on my screen takes less than 20 seconds.

Should be smooth sailing - all's well on the backend.

It's getting hammered, but it should be ok ... there's plenty of bandwidth, but perhaps there are too many simutaneous requests for the webserver to keep up.

Works fine and fast on Opera for me. Maybe the problem is too many LuLa-ers all fighting to view it at the same time.

I guess you're too popular, Jeremy!

Eric may have the answer. I just tried again and finally had to give up. I can't imagine why it's that slow, Jeremy. Looks as if you're using Adobe Flash and that should load pretty quickly. I'm going to come back to it after a while and see if things have changed. It's also possible that something's going on that slows down one of the nodes on the east coast. I'm in Florida.

Rats ... maybe you cached a partial/incomplete version of the flash galleries and now that's all you get?

Can you try to clear your temp directory/internet cache?

At this point, I doubt the traffic is that big ... although I don't know how many simultaneous sessions before it craps out ...

Jeremy, Cleared the cache and tried again, but the problem's the same as before. I'm in Florida. Switzerland, North Dakota, and Massachusetts seem to be okay. I doubt it's a problem with your server since those three are getting a proper download. It could be a bottleneck in the internet node that's serving my part of Florida. On the other hand I can go to my own FineArtSnaps.com and everything loads quickly. I'm using Flash on that site too, so it can't be a problem with Flash on my own computer. My hosting agency's in California, so if there's a problem with a node it's a different one than the one I'm using to reach Cal, and Dark Penguin in Minnesota's surely not in the same internet path I'm in. At this point it's a real head-scratcher. I'm going to try again later tonight.

Edit: Forgot to add: Like Dark Penguin I can get to the index page pretty fast. It's beyond that that things slow down to a near halt. Also, I ran a tracert and it timed out in Denver, which means it's jumping all over the place to get to New York. That's not normal. Same thing happens with a ping. It just times out.

the three original links - poeple|places|things - works fine and fast for me. Explorer 8 on an i7 Windows XP box.

Double rats ... I want you to see it ... there are lots of images you haven't ever seen in the galleries ...

I'm not too sure that the introduction, clever though the tumbling letters are, is other than an irritation.

The site loads quickly (but then, I'm not in Florida!). The arrow keys work (although you could take a leaf out of Eric's book and set the up arrow to mean "go back to gallery list" rather than just duplicate left arrow). Navigation is straightforward and the design is simple and uncluttered.

I really dislike the non-standard scroll bar on the left within a gallery, though. I dislike the absence of scroll arrows. I don't like the fact that clicking in the scroll area doesn't work, so the only way to scroll is to grab the rather narrow thumb and drag it. I don't like its failure to respond to the scroll wheel on my mouse. Is there really not an alternative that works as we're accustomed to scroll bars working?

Nice photos!

Jeremy, Same problem this morning. Like Chuck I'm using Firefox 3.5.7, but I tried it with IE 7 too. No difference. The stuff eventually gets there, but it's incredibly slow. Now, when I go to the people page I quickly get the thumbs, but that's because I left the thing up for an hour or so yesterday and the thumbs are now in the cache. I just timed loading one of the fullscale pictures after clicking a thumb: 29 seconds. I've never seen anything like this before, and I don't know what to try next. Like the pictures though, especially the two little girls hugging. But I do agree with Kikashi's comments.

Edit: A bit more info. I tried going directly to your web, www.jeremypayne.net. No problem. I'm there instantly. I also can run a successful tracert on that site. But when I click on JSP's Place everything hangs -- just like with the new site. Huh??
