    Default slow

    I find that usingenglish is rather slow comparatively since it has changed servers.

    I'll point that out to Red- I must say that I haven't noticed that.

    I really enjoy visiting your forum but I do agree - "slow as Christmas", "slow as molasses" - "slow as Usingenglish".

    Do you find the whole site slow, or just the forum?

    The site was slow today- maybe there's a new virus or something else messing uptraffic. We have a dedicated server, so access time should be fast, but when the internet is under attack, everything slows down.

    The ISP that you use to connect to the internet can also have an effect on the speed of sites. If you find the site is slow using one ISP, see if you can try using another to test the connection.
