    Has anyone else been experiencing slow response times here? Very slow and non responsive for me for a while now. I figured I would just give it some time considering it was a new website and you were working out the bugs. But it is always slow for me, not just my main rig but my laptop and my work computer from another location so I no it's not my connection. I belong to 15+ forums and this is the only one giving me troubles......

    Could be growing pains because the server is overwhelmed, which is s good thing. I only noticed that myself today for the first time.

    It has to do with the bandwidth that's been purchased. The cost is very expensive to get a high bandwidth so that will come with time and sponsorships.

    I'll look into the issue, guys. I've been mega-busy with work, kids, and lots of tree removals on the side. Just spent almost 11hrs today removing three really big hemlocks, 60-70' tall, in a small, tight backyard. Had to piece all three of them down almost to the ground.....

    I'll do a thread of that later. As for the speed issues, I'll look into better bandwidth. Although I'll say I haven't noticed any big problems here with speed. The only time I have any issues at all is during peak times on the weekends and sometimes in the evenings when the internet is probably really busy....

    I have had it but I can't place when I get it and I figured it was just my phone?

    On my home computer its really slow and what I do is right click and open lotsof threads to read so I only have to wait once to open a bunch of stuff then I go through them and read them a bit at the time.

    I've tried to tell you guys what the answer to this is. Jeesh. :rolleyes: No one listens to me. If some of you just get off during the peak times it will be faster for me. :whistle:Hellllllllooooo?

    My iPad only has 1 speed.... Fast. No problems here ;)

    My phone, I have noticed some peak time problems. But still not bad. Think back 15 yrs ago to dial up........ (eeeeeeeeeeehh Hrreeeeeeeeeeee Rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr Bbbbbbbbbb) That was the sound of your old Modem :)
