At 8:14 pm Monday Aug. 14 I stated logging on the site . It took several minutes to do so ( dialup ) and that is 10 times longer than normal. Once logged on it continued that way for a while a s I surfed the topics . I started responding to a topic an time passed ( means I am a very slow typer ) and when I had finished and posted ( around 8:50 ) it was back to normal.
This may be crazy ( probably is considering the source ) but if you watch the site load it may be that it speeds up when sufficient numbers start utilizing the site .
