My problem or the forum...

For a couple of days I have found recurrent sloooooooooooowness when trying to navigate through a thread or among posts. I'm not savvy enough about computers to determine if the problem is with my computer or if there is a problem going on with the forum for which I missed some announcement. When I try to page through a thread, the screen changes unusually slowly and I find messages at the bottom of the screen saying: waiting for AS forums... or Done but with error on page. The "waiting for" message comes on, goes off, comes on again several times. Any advice, please, and thanks in advance. ~G

I have had some of those issues you describe but not recently.

In fact, this week has been really good with forum viewing, & posting, etc.

Maybe some of the pc experts can recommend some tweaking on your settings.

I can report your issue - but I think we've been mostly OK this week.

If you are ever unsure try going here InternetFrog.com: Network Tools, Internet Speed Test and Website Tools
and trying a speed check. You can figure out if your internet connection has slowed down. Eliminating this variable may help you decide if the issue is at your end or ours.

Mine has been kinda unpredictable. It's either 'right now' or refresh to get it. Of course my web provider, Dubai.com, could be the issue today...

(lets see who has CNN as their home page)

Thanks to those who responded above. Janet, I went to the site you gave which says my internet connection speed is 722kbps. Is this good, okay, or crawling compared to most? ~G Maybe I just need to go into a "zone" while I wait...mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm......

Wait for me! Mine was just below 29kbps! The phone company still uses kite string for wire out where we are. No cable is available. Satalite is available.....pay for satalite......or pay for camping??? I will sleep on that one.

I have noticed a slight pause when I open page as well.
My download speed averages 5+ Mbps.

Try Open DNS

This may help. I was having problems and solved them by using Open DNS. Follow the instructions, it is free and has solved all of my issues with page reloads and speed. Your mileage may vary.

I miss those too. I like pictures better than polls. Hope they come back someday.

Page not found errors getting through any links from portal & 49 seconds to load this page. It's irritating to watch the advertising stat counters and ad image refreshes slow the process down - it may be transparent on broadband but on dial-up it's like getting mugged on the way to the library..

I agree with the original poster. Things are slower...and snails pace at times. Its been a recent thing...but better today....for the most part. But slower than it was a while ago. It is the internet and I get tired of fixing it.
