Slow Website

Is it me, or has there been a problem with this website for the past two or three weeks? It's so slow to load that sometimes it just won't until I hit "refresh" several times. The computer I use during the day is even more of an issue (more firewalls), and I can't even open up the site. I have no problems whatsoever with other forums and websites, just this one. It takes so long to open and to download posts, I don't do it as much as I used to. Is anybody else experiencing this?? Thanks!
Jeff

For me, I occasionally try to view a page on the forum, and it just loads a big white blank area. then I hit refresh and it comes up. Things generally are slow to open anyway.

Not sure what it is, but this site has always been quite slow compared to several other forums that I regularly visit. On other sites the pages load instantaneously, but this site usually takes 8-10 seconds every time I switch pages. I don't come here as often because of it.

85SS...I had that issue with this forum when I was using Time Warner's modem/router...bought my own modem and router and it cured it and increased speed for other sites as well. Rick

85SS, I am experiencing exactly the same thing. This is the slowest website I visit. The others are instant, and I have the highest speed Comcast system available. (and it costs $$$!)
