Ah damn this app sucks. Latest bug..randomly and then repeated crashing because it doesn't like certain photos when creating a new entry....aaaaanyway..got there in the end...just like the 'Aromatherapy' package to VA just about has..few nervous moments on hold in customs but just about there! This one is from @cascode. Initially I was like..hmm..then hmmmmm...then hmmmmmm.. that translating to 'is this good?'...'I think it might be'.. and yes it definitely is. Needs a hefty dose of water then time but once that is sorted it really shines. Lovely biscuity vanilla. Thanks @cascode!

    @Soba45 You’re welcome. I’ve found most SMWS expressions to be “tight” when neat - more so than other IBs. I inevitably like them better with a dash of water and a few minutes to rest and breathe. I liked this young Linkwood a lot and would agree with 4 stars.

    @PBMichiganWolverine @Slainte-Mhath It may need a complete ground up rebuild but hopefully not for their sake! Amazingly the comments are getting even worse for me as i now have huge blank sections when scrolling if i try and filter my notifications and i'm limited to a certain number historically. I'm pretty sure i haven't had an update so the back end server side application must be melting down!

    @Soba45 ...and I can tell you’re a software / IT consultant ...

    @Soba45 @Slainte-Mhath @Scott_E at this point, I really it gets sold to a company that will invest in the architecture.

    @Slainte-Mhath Yeah it's the transaction volume that's killing them as they are becoming more popular. From a hardware and bandwidth perspective you can easily remove bottlenecks - go into the cloud with Azure, AWS etc. However if the design of your software e.g. database structure, query optimization etc is poor then you are still stuffed. Bottlenecks can occur anywhere and if you remove one it generally pops up elsewhere.

    @Soba45 I am having lots of troubles with the website version as well. Just after I posted my Chivas 12 review and added some comments, my activity feed would not load anymore. It crashed no matter how often I tried. Only after a while, when other stuff filled page 1 of my feed, the page would load again, but browsing through next pages made it crash again. Much of what has been implemented in past months was a step into the wrong direction, it is sometimes more or less impossible to browse this page.

    @Scott_E @PBMichiganWolverine Yeah I had a good chat to Mikael who mentioned there is architectural issues which are inhibiting them from scaling up effectively. They are doing a lot of work behind the scenes to migrate the infrastructure..hopefully early design decisions don't impeed their ability to do so successfully

    @PBMichiganWolverine Same experience for me. Caches a few entries, then takes a long time to cache the next few entries.

    This app lags a lot when used in mobile.
