Since this update to the site, I've noticed that when I click on a round from my history, on average it takes 12-15 seconds for the page to come up. I have the highest internet speed possible from my ISP. Why in the world of instant everything does it take so long?

It takes a while to "fetch" it.

Hi All -

We experienced some database issues this weekend that caused the HBH stats to really bog down. Those have been addressed and as of right now, scores are loading as intended.

Generally, tech co's won't give specific details on why something was slow.

A possible explanation could be that when the site was updated, a database migration could have taken place (highly probable). In that migration, an index or two may have been missed. Indexes are one thing that speeds up databases - a missing index can result in a full table scan for the data and in a large database or on hardware not anticipating it, that would explain the slow results. This is not isolated to USH - any and all sites run by a backend database can experience this.
