So finally after 8 years . . .

. . . of being on this board I am calling it a day.

Life is too short to sit and stare at blank screens and seeing messages like "Done but with errors on the page" or "Waiting for http\\sailnet . . . . ." or just "Done" and a blank screen. Or just waiting for the pages to open that take an eternity.

A while ago I saw somewhere on the board a moderator or someone who said that Sailnet is faster now but to be honest I have not bothered tracking the thread down to respond to it because I'm not sure I'll live long enough to see the page open.

ANY other website on my system opens in the blink of an eye - Sailnet is just incredibly slooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooow.

So maybe one of the moderators will PM me if the site ever gets some surgery done that makes it usable.

Until then, see ya later.

Bummer dude. I hate to see you bail. You're one of my favorite salts around here. Hopefully things will speed up for you soon...either that, or you'll slow down like me and not notice so much.

Honestly, I'm not seeing much of a speed problem on my end. But this kind of stuff can always be strange.

Fair winds and sail hard Oma.

Sorry to be losing you; your input has been valued. But I do understand, SN has been ridiculously slow at times for me too - especially in areas where bandwidth is limited to begin with!

Always has worked well for me. It can be difficult to figure where the jam up is.

Sorry to see you go,

It has had its problems and quirks, but I honestly can't say any more or worse than other sites.

""Done but with errors on the page" or ..."Done" and a blank screen." Sound like problems in MSIE with "Compatiility View" being needed for sites that use (ahem) obsolete HTML code, as parts of this one do. You might try poking around for settings like that, and reconsider. (I don't get into browser battles, I only note that some offer better options or performance than others, and only one "is" standard, like it or not.)

Have you tried firefox and chrome?

Maybe a different browser will work better for you.

Andre,
Australia has one of the slowest broadband speeds on the planet yet I don't have any of the problems you speak about. I'd second the 'try Firefox' suggestion.
Very sorry to see your resolve. You're a goodun mate.
Regards
Andrew

ps - I do visit AS and SA on a regular basis. they are for me no faster or slower nor more ore less problematic than Sailnet.

The key with sailnet is Firefox with flashblock and Adblock. It's lighting fast after that.

Concur with above.
I'm with Mozilla Firefox and Verizon. Speed on this site is great.

Most of the time it's pretty fast loading, I do have occasional slowdown issues though.
when it does slow down, my status bar just about always shows "transferring data from google analytics"

ken.

Edit, I use seamonkey
