I've got one of the fastest machines money can buy and hooked up to roadrunner so it ain't me...
I've cleaned my guns faster than it takes this site to load.

I've gone down the street bought a six pack, drank a few, stored some in the fridge, went back to the fridge, finished them off before this page could load.

I've driven to my girlfriends house, took her to the range, did some shooting, then took her to the home range, & shot my own personal hot handloads, before this f*cking site could load.

I've eaten dinner and dropped a load before this site could load. WTF?!

This is my favorite site! What the hell else is there? what can we do?

It's a very slow site. Some days it won't even load for me. I'm thinking the server is down but naw. It's run on a cheap budget. Lots of members but very small bandwith. Does your spell check work. Why aren't I surprised.

Ive noticed its a bit slow, but I havent had any real problems with it
Link Posted: 11/18/2003 6:21:30 PM EDT
I've got cable modem, it usually very fast, BUT sometimes the page just fails to load, so you hit the refresh/reload button again until the page loads.

Purchase a membership to the site and leave the whine at the door?

And that would solve what? IIRC there is only "1" person able to "fix" the site and he is busy in the real world. I "think" bandwidth is not the problem, tech support is another story.

Possibly, if 'enough' joined then there could be 'hired' help with the site, never 'thought' of that, did you?

I think your right, but why not let Grock or Ire do some fixing ????

It has always been slow as molasses running uphill. I have a T-1 line and this site operates like a 14400 dial up modem.

i thought they were gonna go back to only allowing registered members to browse?

I've contributed since the very first time it was made available. When different levels were offered I ponied up to platinum.
It's consistantly slow and has been steadily getting worse over the last few years.
I love this place but it's frustrating as hell when it takes forever just to load a stinking page.
Link Posted: 11/18/2003 7:22:26 PM EDT
I'm on DSL and it hesitates a bit sometimes. But when you consider there are over 1000 people here at a time, it's to be expected. Lobby for a limit on non-members. But before ya do, ya better pony up to help the site.

We are testing your loyalty, so far the test is inconclusive!

Perhaps your cache and temp files are in need of deletion. That could slow you down some, if you haven't cleaned them out lately.

I agree, needs to be a limit on non-members and GUESTS. It took three tries just to post this.

Yea, that's never been mentioned/begged for/requested by members only to be shot down/denied in the end. Welcome to last year(s).

Edited to add: If anyone thinks there are over 1600 "living human guest" browsing the site right now, I have ocean front property for sale in NE.

Sites that are popular run slower because there's more traffic. I think it says a lot about this site that so many come to visit. It's the best site on the net.

The number of guests on the board is NOT accurate. Not even close. The counter is fucked, and has been for 2 years. When it resets, you'll see that there are 30,000+ members. At that time even in peak periods, the number of guests will be under 200. Wait a few days and the number of members will have doubled, and the number of guests will have quadrupled. A few more days and you'll see a membership approaching 250,000, with the number of guests over 2000, continuously.

It is very fast for me. Living near the servers probably helps that.

I waited until I had a membership. NOW HEAR ME WHINE!!!!!

My cable modem is much faster than a T1. Sometimes this site is incredibly slow. There I said it. Now I'll go back to my scotch and water.
