Are BF threads loading super slow?

Are the treads loading super slow for you too? I can't take it.
It's like a slow chinese water torture.
Boy I hope this problem improves.

Yes, I think that the threads are developing really slow. Not only that, but I got locked out of BF for 24 hours after sending my last post.

Its getting frusterating.

It's flying now! Earlier it was like a return to the old days of dialup, reading another web page while this one was loading.

That's funny. Here in the US we would say something is "out of wack" but we would never say it's "in wack."

Or should that be "whack"?

Over the weekend, the site was upgraded with new software, moved onto a new server, hosted on a new provider, situated topologically in a different part of the network. In short this was a big change and there were a few teething problems. Joe is working real hard to get it all fixed. Rest assured that things will get ironed out and the end result will be a much faster website than previous.

Yeah, these pages are easily loading 10 times faster than they used to. It's great.

But another problem. The pages don't fit on my monitor any more. There's one of those little scrolly things on the bottom that I have to keep monkeying with.
