    At both school and home, over the past 2 weeks or so, MR has been pretty slow. :D

    Just to get to this forum I counted 8 seconds before "waiting for forums.macrumors.com to respond" went away.

    That's pretty large when I'm used to .5 seconds or so. ;)

    Any reasons? Has anyone else noticed? Or do I just like to complain?

    I experience this slowdown too. Don't know the explanation for this except for the stories from the recent rumors. There were a lot of people on MacRumors during Leopard delay news, perhaps that could do something with this slowdown.

    Your not the only one. But it has been crazy recently on here.

    I've noticed slightly increased lag at times, but nothing like you've described. I don't recall having to wait more than a second or two at the most for the pages to start loading.

    Hey guys... bringing this to the attention of Arn...

    Do you notice that your status bar is hanging on any particular element of the website (i.e., does it appear to hang on an image, or perhaps an Ad?)

    I know we have had some problems with certain images bogging down site load times before. We may be having that issue come up again.

    If you are using Safari, select Window->Activity (or press command-option-A) to open the Activity window. There you can watch the URLs used for a given page and see which are causing the delay.

    I use firefox, however currently I seem to be running well. If the problem comes back, I will use Safari and do that.

    I actually think this is caused by some sort of odd glitch in vBul. On both my PC at home, iBook at home, and eMacs at school all of the vBul pages I visit have been really slow lately.

    None of those lines show an item that hasn't finished loading. Was the page complete at the time?

    If it's slow, and you grab that screenshot while the page has yet to complete, we expect to see a message like "0 of 10 items" next to the URL of the item that's holding up the show.

    Dunno if it's related, but I've been getting spates of unloaded pages. A quick refresh loads the page back up, but it seems to be failing on first attempt. Might be related...

    Getting boatloads of NSURL errors in Safari in 10.4.8 and 10.3.9 now too.

    Arn, I told you that big shiny metal thing in the server room wasn't a coaster!

    Other sites with the same type of ads that we have seen slowdowns too.

    I think it's probably due to certain vendors who have slow servers. Their ad takes awhile to load, causing the whole things to seem slow.

    If this is indeed the case, we'll have to do some detective work to find out which ones. :D
