I haven't noticed it being a regular thing, but I'm moving pretty slow myself lately. Guess DC and I are runni walking at the same speed.

Feel free to stop by tonight to see how long it takes for me to load MLB.com. And bring along a generous portion of your favorite adult beverage if I don't have it in stock. The audio player will take almost 10 minutes from "click" to sound.

What? The missing "thanks" button icon? Guess you fixed it since it's back. Thanks!

Okay, I take it back. I had been getting hung up at "waiting for cdn.discusscooking.com" for awhile now.

However, it seems to get hung up longer and longer as I stay on DC for longer periods.

If I close Firefox and reopen it, it starts up without hanging - at first. Then again, longer and longer as I stay on DC

I was given to administrate a vBulletin site now with a Shoutbox, and I've noticed the Shoutbox runs slowly sometimes. I've come here to find DC to run slowly also, but for some reason another vBulletin site is normal and fast.

I thought it may be the Shoutbox that was slowing us down there, but no. I thought also perhaps I was administrator it was slow, but no. Today everything is fast as normal.

I think this is very funny. When I click the Post Quick Reply box, it tells me: Posting Quick Reply - please wait! HA!

I'm thinking it's almost time for a laptop upgrade, lots of things are running slow. I keep getting the vBulletin Database Error and ERROR 503 (?).

I went with System76.com for my new laptop.

It is for me. Replies, especially, are posting almost instantly and posts come up much faster.

It's running OK for me on a 7 year old laptop. I also try to keep it tidy and get rid of programs that I don't use often. Also make sure that there aren't things running in the background that could be slowing things down.

Yes a tech head like me is running a 7 year old laptop! I keep replacing parts as they fail in a stubborn attempt to see how long I can make this thing last without it costing me a fortune. Seriously pieces of plastic fall off all the time, and I've replaced the fan and hard drive, but this thing refuses to give up the ghost!

I'm wondering if it is an ad that's making it run slow for some, I use an ad blocker and have had no issues with load times.
