Me too. I would go to my favorites and then to my history and then log out and back in. Same thing. It's very sporadic and crawling. I did a post and then saved it again. It ended up being repeated twice so I had to edit the second one and delete all the verbiage and add something short and sweet.

Glad it's not my connection. (I think I paid the dsl bill.)

Well, and all the way from Germany...I noticed this last night, too. I could get in, but it was incredibly slow, so we know it's not our service providers or connection! *grins*!

I just assumed the net was "crowded" or that the heat wave we've been having was causing more problems.

P.S. this morning it's real slow, too.

Iwould go with crowded net idea, except all my other sites were loading just fine.

I encountered the same problem, as well. It ran really slow before, and a little while ago, it went to a screen that said that the website was having difficulties.

I have been having problems with slowness to the forum for the last couple of days.

It looks lo me like either the server is runing slow or the connection is slow.
It could be that a connection problems is causing people to retry a lot and the queue on the server is filling up, thus causing the server to be VERY slow. Such things have been known to happen. Perhaps limiting spiders such that the endless growth of inet links to thousands of old postings does not grow exponentially....

You stole MY idea! I was thinking the same thing last night. They must be hammering this site because we are actually make intelligent arguments against their stupidity.

It's not that far fetched by the way!

It's more likely that the server this site is on is experiencing technical difficulty. I'm sure with a little exercise and some vitamins, and the right belief system it will be just fine!

Well, everything is NOT going to be OK unless you learn to handle whatever comes your way.
