    The pages are slow to load. Tried from my desktop PC at home, from my laptop at Starbucks, and from work. This has been happening the last few days.

    The forums are also slow in the sense that there's not much activity even with more members than ever. You can post a photo and it will stay on the first page for days, even if it gets no replies at all.

    Put these two "slows" together, do the math, and the resulting picture is not a sunny one.

    Hello (hello, hello), is there anybody in there?



    The site is still comfortably numb. I guess it's live with it or just leave.

    You sure the site is slow now?
    Been surfing around tonight and not noticed any slowdown in the site performance at all (and I had like 20 tabs of TPF open at once at one point)

    It comes and goes. When I posted earlier it was bad (at least for me), then improved to almost normal, now it's bad again.

    That's very neat. I wish I had the money to buy so many boxes. I guess I shoudn't spend it on lenses!

    Please post it if you find it. Thing is, how will you know it's the oldest?

    Should I revive it? :lmao:

    I don't know how I will know if it's the oldest... I can't find the very first one.

    They're all from early 2003 though.
