Is it just me or is this web site unbelievably slow?

It's not just you... sometimes waiting to view posts takes 30+ seconds. Seems odd for the relatively small amount of traffic... either there are a lot of looky-loo's, or the machine this software is on is underpowered/RAM-restricted server...

Slowwwwwwwwwwwwww here as well.

Just curious what everyone is using to browse this site and if that has anything to do with it.

I'm on a Mac G4 and using Safari in OS 10.3.9

PowerBook G4/1.5 GHz/1 GB/10.4.6/Safari 2.0.3
We have 2 T-1's that average 40% utilization during the day - so it's not our connection that is slow... though the site seems fine today...

Shortly after posting that, earlier today, the web site got molasses-slow. As in, click on a thread, wait 30-60 seconds for it to display (if it doesn't time out). I am guessing that whatever hardware that vBulletin is running on, it most likely doesn't have enough RAM, and may not have enough processor, either...

Both this site and ecentral are dog slow. It's not the browser, I use both firefox on Windows and Safari. Same speed - slow. I would have to guess it's the server hosting the pages or the database behind it.
