    Hi,

    I don't mean to be a whiner, but the main reason I don't read the forums here on abestweb.com is because they take five years to download. Each page is like 30 seconds.

    I really want to be an active member here, but frankly, I don't have the time in my life to wait for it to download.

    So, I request that someone investigate this to see if there is a way to make the boards faster.

    Thank you for your time.

    ABW loads pretty fast for me, maybe the forum software is not the best but still.

    It's been fairly intermittent for me. Probably 75% of the time, it's fine. The rest of the time, it takes forever. I just open the pages in new windows and go work on other stuff for a while.

    Dude, get rid of that 14.4 modem you are using and get a broadband connection.

    Like the others I have very little trouble with pages loading. There's nothing like a 1200 kbps download connection

    Quite often the problem is images hosted on other hosts that aren't being served correctly, and your browser waits for the connection to time out.

    I usually end up hitting the stop button, because once the main HTML and text has arrived, I'm ready for work. I'm not here for the pretty icons.

    Haiko, it still doesn't work right. It's taking for ever to get new posts. New posts are missing. It's slow like hell if you use your back button to browse other forums. And I'm getting error messages from time to time.

    Internal Server Error
    The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
    Please contact the server administrator, webmaster@abw.infopop.cc and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

    More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    20 minutes later my post still doesn't show in the "new posts" report.
    The last post in my report is:
    traffic,traffic,traffic (in Commission Junction®), by nyfalcon posted January 08, 2005 12:59 PM
    Obviously that's not right, there's many posts I can't see.

    It's a real pain in the butt to follow any thread. That InfoPoop software is a piece of sh@t.

    That's costing you readers, new members and I'm sure advertising revenue.
