Help! DVDTalk Forums SLOW to load!

OK, I will try to explain this as best I can.

Recently, my work removed something from there servers that has to do with caching.

Now, when I go to DVDTalk, all the links load quickly (Home, Coming Soon, Coupons, Shop, Reviews, Join, Swap DVDs, Advertise) except FORUM!!!

When I click Forum, it does load, but it takes FOREVER. (IE slower than a dial up, much, much slower).

It's windows 95 and a T1 line.

Is there anything I can do?

I have been tinkering around with a 2000 box, but I have not put it on the network yet, would that help?

Thanks for ANY help,

-Steve

Thanks. I will try that when I go back to work!

guppie, it's real frustrating because when I get home, I have no problems. But I do most of my surfing at work during lunch.

The whole damn thing is driving me nuts.
