    Finding this site really slow

    manx
      I think the forums are an excellent resource, but lately have been frustrated with how slow I'm finding page loads these days. Is anyone else experiencing difficulties? Even typing text into the input boxes has a frustrating time delay.

            As Bonnie suggested, nntp is a better way to access this group. If you must use the forums (like me) try using Firefox. I've noticed that it doesn't have the same slow text inputting problem that IE sometimes does.

              Firefox also seems to save the contents of a form if you use the back
              arrow after a failed post

                That's the function of the "back" button. All browsers should do the same. When it does not happen,
                it's because the "previous" page has some server-side features that specifically do not allow it for
                security reasons.
