Lag when loading next set of posts

I’m not sure if this is common, but I’m seeing a consistent lag when I reading through my Everything folder. It’ll load a bunch of posts, then when I’ve gone through them, it takes 3-10 seconds to load the next bunch. Hitting “J” will do the trick at time, but I often have to hit “Next Unread” to keep going (could be my impatience rather than actually hitting it doing the trick), and sometimes I have to just reload (by hitting “Everything”) to get the next batch of stuff.

I’m using the dev site, not sure if that could be part of it.

There is a great rewrite that I have planned to address this. Unfortunately, it’s the nature of the beast that is the current River of News. It’s heavily reliant on caching in Mongo, and if it’s been more than 60 seconds since the stories have been loaded, they have to be reloaded, which can take 5-10 seconds. Ugh. But I have a great fix coming eventually.
