    Anyone else having all kinds of issues connecting today? About 5 times I've lost connectivity to the board, getting the message below in the browser...

    Yes, I have been having problems as well. Earlier today there was a message about upgrading the software.

    Seems like the upgrade has some problems.

    The administrators have been upgrading the software. Sorry for all the confusion, but it is temporary.

    I have found it to be a lot slower today and I'm using my new PC with a i5 processor!

    Must be progressive software then. It is new, but doesn't work as well or really fix anything.

    10-second wait between "new post" searches has now been extended to 30 seconds.

    Guess we gotta leave lotsa bandwidth for the spiders and spambots to suck up! :razz:

    I'm finding that annoying, but then if it helps to speed up the system, I suppose I can live with it.
