Hi Tim

The problem could be at your end.

I use the site in opera or chrome and it's pretty fast.

However, it does log me out all the time.

I'm not a techie person but do different servers have different speeds, if so is it just a question of which server this forum is on?

For sake of working out if it is a browser issue, I'm on Firefox and it loads pages very slowly.
To put it in context, it's still way quicker than a 56k modem on dial up so we should be grateful we're not back in that slow lane of history :lol:

I use chrome and have about 8 different forums open on tabs. It takes on average about 10 times longer for any page to load on this forum than any of the others I use. So you are not alone in your frustration.

Just out of interest, I use XP and Firefox at home and it is very slow, whilst at work on a W8 machine also with Firefox and a very fast connection (year right!), it is just as slow.

But worth it when you get there!

Sorry to be negative Stan,

Brian.
