I've finally figured out that it's not my Mac since all the other sites and forums I go to load much faster. Last night from 0306 in the morning until 0358, I could not get on at all. The address bar would start to load and then freeze. What's really frustrating is when I'm in the middle of a post and this happens. . . . My gut feeling is that the MR server(s) can't keep up with the traffic.
