The site seems incredibly slow today… Something going on?

it probably because we have changed the front page and there is a video on it. we are currently hosting the video, so if there are a lot of people watching the video then it will slow down the server. i will try to host it elsewhere so it does not affect the speed of the forums…

Still really slow this AM. I thought it was maybe the “upgrade” from my ISP, but other sites seem to be at normal speed.

alright… i think i have improved the performance again. please let me know if you are still having speed issues (specific pages???). theoretically, the site should be faster than it ever has been.

let me know if you have feedback and i will try to address it. thanks for your patience…

I had noticed the slowness also, and now notice the improvement.
