Why is the site so painfully slow?

I love the site but I can download a 10MB file faster than I can
access the Homepage...anybody know what's up?

The thought of clicking on a link for another post has become pretty scary.

I may actually be insane.

Best thing to do when the site slows is go make a cup of coffee and come back later :)
Don't get people hammering the server and raising the load that way ;)

at least the site is hosted in linux. u guys ever seen a php/mysql forum hosted in win 2k server with IIS? it's awful!

Adam, hmm, that depends if the admin knows how to set it up.

and yes, we are having server issues, these issues, however, will be resolved soon.

madmatt, eh, linux is by far the better server, especially when it comes to php and mysql, in my opinion. i am a newb tho, so i suppose one could make it comparable if they knew what they were doing

I'm on cable and it can take upwards of 60 seconds for a page to load. Sometimes it's faster, sometimes doesn't load at all. This has been going on for the past week or so.

guys, its a free site, they're providing an excellent service here that the owners are paying for. Quit whining and be patient.

if you want it to getbetter faster, then donate money.

1) I think what's happening here is we are providing feedback, not whining (at least that's my intent)
2) I assure you the operator(s) of the site want this feedback
3) They need to know because in the long run poor response time will result in fewer visitors

i understand some of you aren't whining. feedback is great. posting, "the site seems slow, it took me X amount of seconds to access" is great feedback.

but, some of the comments are bordering on whining, IMO

I'm on a 28.8 kbps connection... and I find that usually this site loads pretty fast. Sometimes it is really slow though, but usually I'm impressed with the speed.
