    Proven combat techniques may not be flashy and may require a bit more physical effort on the part of the shooter. Further, they may not win competition matches, but they will help ensure your survival in a shooting or gunfight on the street. ~Paul Howe

    Me too... you will never sell me on an OS that doesn't come with a disk. My Dad was having problems with his PeeCee laptop and asked me to help... like I know anything about XP... anyway, I said, "you might want to back everything up and reinstall Windows... where is your disk?"

    Apparently didn't come with a system software disk... then he told me some idiocy about only having 5 re-installs and having to call Microsoft...

    Huh...?

    It seems your computer, as long as Virus/Spyware scans come up empty, isn't the problem.

    Is there perhaps somebody else using your internet connection? Maybe a kid online with his Xbox or downloading music or movies or something?

    If that's not the case either than the website server is probably to blame.
    It isn't a prob w/ his connection, this is slower to load than a lot of others. No biggy, it is just popular. It happens to all popular sites.

    For you Windowers, check out TCPOptimizer

    Slide the rule to your advertised download speed, then hit the Optimized Settings button on the lower right. Save, then reboot and enjoy.

    Free and effective. It made a BIG difference on my XP machine.

    Actually I have noticed that sometimes the system is fast and sometimes real sluggish, I think it is just server traffic issues....

    I've noticed it being slow today, but yesterday it was as fast as any other website I brought up. So, as others have said, it's traffic related, but those with slow machines will notice it more.

    If you weren't here posting your computer stats, the server wouldn't have as much load on it, and it would be faster.

    My recommendation, hit the site supporter button, give Bumper about 20 thousand dollars and see if he will upgrade the server. Until then, I don't see how you have much of a right to complain. Just my .02.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    It sounds like the forum is fast for some, slow for others. The fact that it is fast for some, makes it sort of hard for me to figure out how I can speed it up for those that it appears slow to. Anyway, I think this thread may have run it's course and seems to be going in circles like a drain....
