Re: Loading Home and Validation for purchases appears to be improved.

Apr 11, 2014

Well D, I will have to try that out today, because last night was really frustrating for me.

It took me 30 minutes to log onto home after I tried to clear my cache. I got an error code and then reloaded.

Once I got back on, I got booted off again and tried for over an hour and a half to get back on, being told that it couldn't validate me or some such nonsence.

 

Making a purchase? Now I just turn back to my TV and watch a complete 1/2 hour show, before it validates the purchase.

 

Do we need a complete overhaul of the whole "validating purchases" thingy?

Naw, not when I can enjoy being frustrated and angry and stressed to the hilt why ruin a good thing? Smiley Wink

 

I'll let you know if I find loading times have improved when I get on home tonight.

I know exactly what you mean, and I may have spoke too soon, although I haven't purchased anything since I posted this thread.  Also there is ceratinly a good chance what happened to me yesterday was largely a fluke and not the norm. 

 

What I have been doing is using a stop watch and timing how long it takes me to load Home and how long it takes to do any purchase using PI, News Reader, and from the normal store menus.  And I suggest others do the same, and keep doing it for at least a month and see how those times compare.

 

Obviously it doesnt help much to compare them to other people's times as the amount of items someone has purchased has a direct effect on how long loading and validating takes.

Since the prolong validation process seems like it's a hard fact for Home Life and is going to be around for a while.

 

It's allowed me get get a lot of things done around my place while waiting for the procedure to complete.Woman Happy

 

Yes it's still annoying and frustrating. Hopefully some sort of improvement comes are way.Woman Happy

I just loaded up normally but I do use a sshd hybrid. Maybe they made some adjustments?

 I have to admit that I really dread buying things on Home now. I tried buying things in a bundle from veemee acouple days ago to cut the load times. And thats how I ran into the problem of not recieving the acorn vouchers I just purchased along with some other stuff. I got the other stuff ok, just not the acorns. But I've bought very little since that day. And I think this problem will be what ends up killing Home if its not corrected soon.

I use an SSD and validation on purchases still takes me 20-30 minutes. I only get the loading boost and faster travel, validation is not effected at all. Smiley Indifferent
