Is there a right/wrong way of using the slow commenter? I'm posting to wordpress blogs, first I use the fast comenter, as the success rate is very low, I then use the slow commenter, but it takes forever, so id like to know if theres a way round this, or if theres a correct way of using the slow commenter but so that it doesnt take forever, it literally takes a few minutes to go through each url.i have adjusted the settings, i.e. the timeout setting to 10 seconds, but having it take a few minutes to go through each url is obviously not right.im not using proxies, (and dont need to) so this is not the problem.so any ideas on the correct way of using the slow commenter ?
You're doing it right. It's called the slow commenter b/c it's slow, I guess.
One way to speed things up is to run two or more instances of SB in virtual machines. You can do this by using VirtualBox (and probably by using other similar apps).
So you run two or three instances of SB simultaneously and split up your efforts, and get it done quicker. This works if you have a fast connection and a good machine of course - if your machine is barely limping along in the first place you can't really do it this way.
