Yeah, that's basically what I get. Sporadic movement sometimes, very slow text input most of the time, and varying levels of performance. The thing is obviously still in beta.

Do you have invites you can give out? I invited my other gmail account but that one didn't have any invites to give.

If you got any, it would be in your inbox as a new wave.

I've been trying to Wave today...I must say it's a little overwhelming! It feels like a chat room with thousands and thousands of people chatting at the same time! Shocked

So if you pull up a wave that has new blips in it, you can jump to the next unread blip by hitting space bar. No more scrolling. Found that out by accident this morning.

Thanks... there goes an hour or so catching up on the health care wave that I have let balloon to 400 unread comments because of the tediousness of finding an unread comment Smile

We're already onto a new one AGAIN. I'll reinvite. Its starting a little slower so you might be able to get a word in this time. Even I fell out on the last one; it got going pretty fast there for a while.

IMO, best wave is "Flash Flood News," although it hasn't taken off yet. The idea is nothing but news headlines from around the world are posted; in other words you just make news travel faster via wave. There's only one guy doing it right now, but he's still throwing headlines up there I'm not seeing elsewhere.

Sounds "twittery"... Wave runs like frozen pigeon crap on my work laptop... Maybe I will get a new laptop next year so I can more efficiently waste time at work Smile

It gets better every week though. Now, even the very large waves are running pretty smoothly for me. When they got over 300 blips, they would freeze up until everyone's avatars loaded and then they were really twitchy and slow, but as of this week they move comparatively fluidly and don't lock up waiting for avatars to load.

I really like Flash Flood News!! Google Wave does seem to be working better!

Just a reminder: I have 18 invitations for wave if anyone is still interested. Its...different. Has its perks but needs some work.
