    Yup. It's very image heavy, so it takes a while to load on my fast cable connection. Sometimes it's worse than others.

    Get rid of IE, if that's what you are using.  Chrome or Firefox are much faster in almost every application.

    I'm on Firefox and it's slower than most other websites. Not intolerably so, but it's definitely noticeable. I'm running between 15 and 17 mb per second download speeds, 2-4 mbps uploads.

    Has it gotten even slower in the last few days?. SMF has always been slower then any other site I visit, but the last few days it's become almost intolerable. I'm talking 20-25 seconds to navigate to a different page slow.

  11. I remember when I would wait like 10 minutes for a page to load on dialup.  Now I get mad if it takes more than a few seconds...yeesh we are spoiled.  But yeah, its a little slow sometimes for me too.

    Never mind, answered my own question. Switched to Firefox and it's not an issue.
