Is there a problem with the server or something? I go to numerous other websites and this one is significantly slower than the rest. I also noticed when I try to go back a page I have to click back two times to get it to go back one page. I haven't been on the site much in the last year, but now that I bought a new Envoy I figured I would start hanging around again but probably not so much if i is going to be this slow.

The more popular a site is and the time of day can really affect the speed of any site. If few people are logged in, it goes faster. :m2:

I would not say it is fast by any means. but it is not really slow either. I am on at all times of day, from a variety of connections, and don't see a lot of variation. I do get the sense that some of the downloads (some threads) are much larger than others, and those take a bit longer.

The thing that really irks me is the 20 second rule. That has become very frustrating to me personally, much more so than the delay in the downloading of threads.

Now, slow and fast don't really tell anybody anything . For me, 5 to 8 seconds constitues the longer wait times to load a new thread, and three or 4 seconds is what I normally see. I ordinarily log in from moderate to fast cable connections, and from a T1 out of a server.

I think it's much slower than it used to be. Maybe get rid of some of the BS topics but then posting would be done on other threads. JMHO

I would have to agree this site has gotten slower. Does anyone else have a route through XO? XO seems to be the slow down to the site.

Use an adblocker. You can switch to FireFox or use IEPro7 (what I use). It's a full-blown add-on for IE7, does a real nice job. The ads slow down the site quite a bit, the blocker helps.

Yeah I thought the pages here were loading a little slower than normal. I've tried it both with Firefox and IE 6. No real difference.
