Alien, Is there something going on with the server? This has been going on for a few days now. Just now, the post new topic page took over 4 minutes to load. Last night,I had to hit stop after 9 minutes because I wanted to go to bed. Normally, the pages snap right up, but for the past few days, access to all of the pages on the board has been really slow. Also, I ran a ping on the site last night, and the ping times are in the 700's, and about 14% of the packets are being lost. If I ping my brother's site in Arizona, the ping times were only in the 500's. This morning, I ran the ping and both sites are down in the 250's, but his site is significantly faster than AlienSoup right now. Is there a problem with the server? ------------------ I am Jack's raging inner child. Without me, Jack has to deal with the pitfalls of reality.
