I can't understand why it takes SO long to access the pages on dvdtalk.com . It was so much faster before the change Geoff mentioned. What can I do?

I don't believe it is your DSL provider........

I have been having the same problems ever since Geoff switched to this new software...... I have this problem all day long.

I access this site at work from a network.
I am using IE5.5 with SP2. My OS is win NT 4.0.
How about you?

I visit less often and only click on a few threads because posts take about a minute or more to load..

I hope Geoff can fix this.

Last time Geoff asked me to do a Traceroute but I did not know how to do it....

Geoff, PLEASE HELP US!

I'm fine for most of the day. Occasionally, the forum runs extremely slow, but I just leave. By the time I return it's fine.
