Hope it gets fixed soon. Last night, Saturday, the Forum couldn't be accessed all--totally down, today (Sunday afternoon) the Forum is very very slow, sometimes a minute or more to update to the next thread. Just barely was able to access it to post this.

Hi Steve,

It may have been ISP, internet provider or network in your area, I think. Mine has been fine since Saturday. The Forum and chat work just as usual. I did not notice any speed problem.

I thought I would let you know. Maybe you could try some net speedtest, available online, which will let you know the upload and download speed to and from your computer.

What browser are you using? When I use internet explorer this and other sites work terribly. I downloaded google chrome and now things in the internet are fast again and no freezing up.

Thanks for letting me know Steve.
I did a check and it seems that there were no troubles with the forum over the past few days. In the future though, please send me an email if you notice more trouble. :)
