So, I dont come here or post much anymore, cause on this site, and this site only, it takes forever to load. When I try to post on a thread, it takes forever, and more often than not I get error messages and have to hit post a second or even a third time. I have so much damned trouble trying to post that I've gotten really angry and don't come on here much anymore. No other websites are like that for me...I'm pretty sure that its not my computer or my connection, but something that my computer doesn't like about this site. Any ideas, or is anyone else having trouble with the speed of the forums??? Kinda frustrating, cause I love it here, but its not worth being pissed every time I try to post!

I had that this afternoon, it acted like the site was offline. I got the "page not found" message, but then 10 minutes later it was fine...

usually all smooth sailing for me....in fact GMAIL give me more hassles than this place "ooops the system is not ready. Please try again in a few seconds"

Yea...have Cable now...COMCAST IS F'ING WORTHLESS. Their techs have been here over a dozen times in the last 15 months, and every time they say "I don't know what the problem is, call us next time it goes down." and when I call them, they say, "no, it shows that its up on our system." and they leave it at that. I finally said F it, and ordered Yahoo DSL. Damn near as fast, $35 a month cheaper, and no problems! I even went so far as to have an electrician friend of mine run his tester on the cable drop from the street to the house, he found exactly where the bad connection was, and when I pointed it out to the tech, they said "no, that's not the problem, I don't know what it is" The bastards...I live in a pretty old house and the cable wiring is outdated...that's the problem, but they refuse to fix it, so they lost a customer. Oh well, I'll be happier and saving money. But alas, that's not the problem with this site, cause my cable, when its working, works fine on the all the other sites that I frequent.

Hey Spyder, if it's just this site I would suspect something like a hard refresh is needed (ctrl - F5) to clear old cookies and such, or there may be a setting in the browser you are using. Just a couple of stabbs in the dark. I use Mozilla Firefox for a browser, have DSL and not problems.

Also keep in mind, due to the storms around Fla, the site has been up and down.

I think so, it clears the cache and cookies.

Which browser are you using?

I have RoadRunner at home and SBC DSL here at work. It's a we bit slow at time but not really bad. Dial Up would be a nightmare. Sal told me the system is being attacked every single day by hackers.

You know how you can go under TOOLS and then delete cookies and temp files, well it doesn't really get rid of all the cookies it seems. I have to occasionally go in manually and delete each one........is there a trick to getting rid of ALL the cookies, etc.
