    We seem to be having an intermittent problem. We are in contact with our service provider. They have given us very good service over the years and this weems to be an exception.

    Are others experiencing the same thing...5 seconds or more to load a page on my cable modem connection?

    It comes and goes. Usually it is fine. Other sites are normal speed to load (high speed connection) when this site is slow. It feels like it is a line overload into and out of the server. I suspect the service provider knows they are operating at the margins but haven't decided to upgrade the bottleneck yet.

    It's taking 30-45 seconds on good ol' dial up! Usually it takes 6-10 seconds.

    Looks like you talked to the right people. It's smoking now. Has been slow lately but now it's back to click, click, click, just like changing channels on the tv.(high speed cable connection)

    Thanks!!! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    ya I was going to start a post about this, it seems a little better today, but still compared to other sites it seems slower. good luck, maybe we're getting to many people on board... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Thanks for the post, Len. Thought it was my computer or internet connection. Tryed to post this morning but couldn't. Was very slow. Everything seems to be normal now.

    I have not noticed a problem? I get pretty near instantaneous response, and I check in almost every day. LB
