Is it just me or are there others here that have noticed that it seems to take an interminable amount of time for pages to fill here recently?

Example, after I clicked on new topic I had enough time to get up and refill my coffee cup, sit back down, and the page was still not there yet. Granted I'm on a dial up connection, but this site has become the slowest of any that I go to.

Must be you, since I am on dial-up (alas!) and the pages all load reasonably quickly most of the time.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

I too am on a very slow dialup ISP and occasionally have problems with page loading.
But I attribute that to my local ISP server as the problem for me is sporadic
and often affects other sites I'm on also.
The only easy day was yesterday.

Im using broadband, and i too on the odd occasion find it loads up slow here, i can load other sites fine but upon returning here, it takes a little longer. Its not very often, but i did experience it the other day.

QUICK QUESTION: As i typed this, ive just had a popup from FIREFOX asking me to answer a few questions to help with future updates. Has anyone else had this???
