For the past couple of days it seems like the site has been really slow.
I know that with the RNC, there have been a ton of posts, and lot of hits.
Is this a server utilization issue, or a bandwidth issue for the access circuit you use for internet connectivity?
Either way, I plan to join real soon and put some money into this site, I have enjoyed it for free long enough. Hopefully enough other folks will do the same....takes money to keep the site running nicely.
