I don't know what you're using for a browser, but Firefox posts running messages to a status bar at the bottom of the browser. I've noticed two things that slow SN page loads down significantly and regularly: pagead2 dot googlesyndication dot com and www dot youchoose dot net. Of the two of them: The latter is definitely the biggest PITA, by far. I've "null-routed" that one. Google advert syndication tends to slow down page loads about everywhere I've seen it, but its "PITA factor" hasn't quite >< got me to the point I'm ready to do something about it... yet. Other than that: I have noticed SN having server problems on-and-off the last week or two. Sometimes it doesn't last long, other times it does. One day (last week?), the site was down for several hours. I'm not there, so I don't know, but it looks and acts, from the outside looking in, like database problems. (Web forums like these store everything in an SQL RDBMS. MySQL, more often than not.)

FWIW guys...I let the admin know about the problem and referenced this thread and got a note back this AM that they are looking into it. Let's hope it gets sorted out!

No longer posting. Reach me by PM!

Oh man, I tought it was me, I have a Verizon wireless card on the boat, which is only a little better than dial up IMO, and it was so slow I would open up SN, then go get coffee or whatever, come back and it would just then be loading....man it was ugly, but I did get some boatwork done.

I notice some pages still have issues, I get a message at the bottom that says " Page done but with errors "

Lord, give me coffee to change the things I can change and Rum to accept the things I can't

I get that same message sometimes but have no idea what it means. Maybe I'm gun shy but is it slowing down again?

I contacted the 'contact' button [think it had to do w the store' and the administrator this morning. Glad its fixed. Sailnet is tops but that dial up speed will drive people away!

My formula for living is quite simple. I get up in the morning and I go to bed at night. In between, I occupy myself as best I can.

It's 2:00pm PST and I just got to this, but SN is acting very, very slow for me right now. Everything seems to have a delayed response, not just loading pages and not finishing. I'll come back later (tomorrow? next day?) to see if it's better...

Seems to be working better now this evening. I was expecting some smart @ss 'bye bye xort' answers, not a real solution! Looks like y'all are stuck with me for a little while longer.

While in Fla prepping the boat, I was using my Verizon Treo and seemed to get speeds not much slower than my comcast hi-speed cable.

It was slow for me yesterday morning and I did what was suggested and added "www.youchoose.net" to my hosts file and it immediately sped right up. I did try and look into what youchoose.net was and it is some kind of survey tool. But their site was down(I looked before I added them to my hosts file). I am assuming they have a lot of problems with their service and whenever they go down they grind any site that uses whatever service they provide to a crawl.
