Site taking a long time to load Tue, 03/7/06 12:11 PM (permalink)
I have noticed that RF is taking a long long time to load. I checked other sites on my bookmarked pages, and they are coming up normal speed. I have high speed, and RF is loading like I am on dial up.
Is something wrong here, maybe the server isnt working right?
Anyone else experiencing this?

        I'm having the same problem. I lowered my cookies standard to 3rd party only. It helped it go a little quicker........Joe

            Why thank you!
            I am going out for the job hunt today.
            I am fully a citizen of SC as of yesterday. I paid my personal taxes and got my license and registered my vehicle.
            UGH....
            Anyway, I get too frustrated waiting so long trying to read and post things here today, so off I go.....
            Glad to know its not just me!

                It's back up to 30 second or so page loads on cable. Guess I'll do my surfing here later tonight, I don't have that much free time at the moment.

                  I have noticed for the last few weeks that it has been slow. I do not know why. Perhaps Stephen can tell us when he gets back from his long trip.

                  It is not agonizingly slow but much slower than what it use to be.

                    Thanks for the feedback everyone. The site sometimes becomes slow because we have been seeing a major increase in traffic during the past several weeks. Occasionally, we have network difficulties and we limit the bandwidth for a few of hours for troubleshooting purposes.

                      Nice to know it is because of traffic on the web site!
                      That's good!

                        Exactly! Although given my time constraints most of the time, it means I can only be here latenight after work, at least I know it's for a logical reason rather than just being annoying.

                            Rumor has it they are going to install a new Dell PowerEdge 6800 server to handle all the posts from Dr. Smoke.

                              I'm on dial up, so it's always dial up slow for me.

                                          Yes, but they must have an agenda to be served to the Starbucks crowd.
