  • Hi,
    duplication does not happen simultaneously, but is done hourly.
    For quick details see also here.
    So it has no direct influence on speed. Even if it is just running while you copy something, the slowdown should not be remarkable, as long as the system is not on the very low end with memory.

    A request: could we please all use the link feature of the forum software (that little icon with a globe and chain links) instead of pasting huge, long, off-the-right-edge-of-a-30"-monitor links into our posts? Thanks!

    Really, it makes posts more readable... :)

  • Ken,
    sometimes I really face problems to bring up this dialog field to insert the links, in some cases the IE window froze while trying to open this thing causing me to loose what I already wrote.
    So I sometimes tend to the more stable, less good readable way.

  • I understand that there can be issues with the forum software. Parts of it are pretty severely broken in Chrome, for example (my browser of choice for the moment...). But still, if a link runs off the right edge of a very large, high-resolution display (and therfore requires horizontal scrolling...), I shudder to think how hard it will be to read for some poor soul on a 1024x768 laptop screen (which describes me when I'm travelling on business).

    You might want to mention your issues in the bug reporting forum over here.
