Slow Load Times are Funny, ... Right? Crazy Ecommerce Video #6

Written by Dave Olson

Do not adjust your screen! The eagerly awaited episode 6 of (everyone sing it now), "The Crazy, Messed-up World of ... Ecommerce" series Bananarama…rama…rama…rama crawls into the issue of ssssllloooowwww site load times and resultant errors.

Beware - As you watch the video, you may experience the dread and frustration of a server bonking out mid-session. You know when you are shopping along and all of a sudden the server drags to a slow crawl and by the time the hourglass/spinny-wheel stops, the site has lost it's marbles. Your flow is lost and the site seems to have no idea where you were/are, what you were looking for and throws you back a heinous error. Fun over - insert coin to play again. Plus bananas are inherently funny.
