    Is it just me...or is the forum so slow that it makes you want to jam a pen into your eye and then slam your head down onto the desk...driving the pen deep into your brain?

    We've been working on that problem and we're close to getting it resolved. Today there are other forces at work though. There is a significant ammount of packet loss between the server that hosts TPF and the rest of the world. A lot of traffic going through Dallas (which is about 25% of all traffic in the US) is also experiencing a slow down.

    Just FYI...

    I've definitely noticed it, it's much worse today. I figured it was my work server. Glad it's not just me, this place has been moving like a snail!!

    You remind me of when I'm having a bad day at work, and my favorite saying become "Well I'll just go stab myself in the neck with a pen, then.."

    They were working on the site, I think. I got that, then I got a message saying they were testing something so the forum will be unavailable for a few minutes.

    I thought it was my PC.

    Push till the pen starts to come out the back side, and get someone to pull it the rest of the way through. :lmao:

    I thought maybe I'd leave it in and use it to peck at the keys.
