Sorry, Uncle Bob. Not here. Maybe you haven't had enough bourbon. Or...maybe you've had too much. Your call. I vote for more. Things are whizzing along quite nicely here.

I've been having slow page loads myself (for a day or two now) even though I have Cable Modem. Could be the distance between the new server and the backbone that splits to the southern area....again, we get southern vs northern! ?

hmmm, i'd imagine if you've had too much, things might be whizzing along quite nicely as well...

no problem here (until buck and k.t.e. get ahold of me ) either, bob.

Well, I am certainly glad it's not just me! Didn't think it was the bourbon or the lack thereof. (Maybe cheap Vodka ) The page seems to load, but the page contents take forever!! Mo- Lasses is a good description Miss Dove

Andy R may have a couple of his forums hooked up to our server for a couple days. It was VERY slow a couple says ago for me but now seems to be better.

Run Ad-Aware program - I had some things tracking me - once I removed them things were faster.

Yeah, it's been loading slow for me too. And I have road runner and a fast computer with over 1 GB of ram. Heck, myspace loads faster and that's with people putting all kinds of crap on their pages.

Slow here too. I did a couple of things to my computer thinking that may be the problem - didn't help.

You aren't the only one, this site reminds me of the turtle commercial and dial up. It has been slow from the beginning, if I didn't really enjoy this site I would have been gone long age.

This site is constantly going through changes and there are a lot of sites associated with this one as far as the server is concerned. It doesn't seem to be running too slow right now. We're glad you are sticking with us Elf.

Nothing remains the same Bucky. Sites get added to the server load. Software gets updated. Hardware fails and needs to be replaced.

the song does...

i was just curious. so, it's not necessarily this site, but the overall bidness of the owner's sites that causes change, as well as the aforementioned failures. correcto?
