Yes, longer than normal. Further, can't seem to start new thread. Keeps displaying the 5 minute rule! Soooooo, if this reply posts, why can't I start a thread???

Driftwood and 53Flying Cloud, The load times are getting longer and longer for me as well. I posted about this problem several weeks ago and it seemed to improve for a while. Now it is back to loading VERY slowly again. I agree, it makes a huge difference to those of us in rural areas who rely upon dial up. Right now I am on at 52.0 Kbps, but at other times I'm lucky to get on at 42.0 Kbps.

I am still dial-up, by choice.. althought I'm not rural.

It seems that so many zillions of people went to cable that dial-up is NOT that slow anymore,

except I STILL CAN NOT POST A NEW THREAD!

Boo Hoo!

If you get a DSL or Broadband, you'll know the difference right out of the gate....as an avid DSL and DS3 user, it's hard to go home to 3mb when I have access to a DS3 at work. At any rate, the difference in cost is getting within reason (dial-up service vs. broadband/DSL). I'd be very hard pressed to go back to a dial up unless I was in real bad shape. At the very least, OS patches and upgrades done via the web in most cases are just plain not possible over a dial-up connection. Which means folks on dial-up tend to get all the nasy hacks and viruses because it's a PITA to get the machines updated properly...but if you can't get DSL or Broadband, maybe sat might be an option. I though I saw one that did both up and down from the dish....but don't quote me on that....

A bad day in broadband land beats an awesome day in dial-up land.

DSL, where available is becomming so price competitive that it doesn't make sense to stay with it. My neighbor uses dial up from MSN and is paying $18.00 or so a month for the subscription. SBC is selling Yahoo DSL for $19.95 a month. Obviously he is moving to DSL ASAP.

I pay 10.95 a month, unlimited, and am not online 24/7.


I always ask myself.. what would I do? Shop faster?

I have used DSL at other places and it moves so fast, it's scary.. and I am not always the first one to move forward and change things ;-) I bet sooner or later I may have to, though.

I'm not sure what you use your PC for but for example, I did my taxes with Turbo Tax. You always go through a few updates before all the tax forms and calculations are final. My neighbor uses the same software. My download time to upgrade using DSL, less than 4 minutes. His time using dial-up, 90 minutes.

If you have Windows XP, did you do the service pack 2 upgrade? Quite honestly with firewalls, virus checkers, Windows security upgrades, and then the patches that come though on Microsoft Office, TurboTax, Quicken, game patches etc., I don't know how much time it would take if I didn't have DSL. And even at a $10 per month premium, its less than a second phone line.

Jack

Houston we have a problem.....

The name of this thread should be changed to "Definate Forum Problems".

Recently, the load times for each page have gotten snail slow. I have a broadband connection and dial-up as well. Pages that used to load instantly are now taking up to a minute (broadband). Dial up is actually not much worse....

Another bug: When posting in advanced mode, the smilie icon menu is messed up. The "mouse over" hover menu that explains what each face means is wrong. Smilies are called arrows, arrows are called red face, etc.

What's up?

Andy are you there????

Yep the Post Icons (below the message reply box) are labeled incorrectly as you hover over them. My response time is varying. Anywhere from immediate to as much as 20 seconds wait before the screen pops up. Why? Obviously we know there are software problems with this current release. Unfortunately we don't know the timeframe for the author's of this software to fix the various problems. Obviously they are well documented in this thread.

Maybe our best course of action is to post new and different problems from this point on. I think we have all beat upon the known issues in the previous postings that repeating them again and again will provide no additional solutions or information that will help resolve this issues. I think almost everyone including the moderators have experienced the issues listed so far.

Jack

"Almost" being the key word. The last thread the webmaster started was on January 18, and was titled "Upgrading Software".

Since he is now logging on somewhat infrequently now, it may actually help to keep posting "me too" responses to keep the thread on the main page where he might see it.
