I am too, but that's probably because I'm on a slow connection in the middle of the countryside for the last few days. At least so I thought...

Oh, by the way, this post was made by The Hole Got Fixed!

It's a captcha. You have to answer the question before you can post. Very heavily used on forums years ago but not so much nowadays.

Um, sorry everyone. I don't know why the captcha is reappearing – I'll look into it. I've not experienced either of those things though, so it might be hard to replicate.

As for the slowness, it's something I've been aware of for a while. The rest of the site is mostly OK speed-wise, but the forum can't be cached so often runs more slowly. It's got particularly bad in the last few weeks though. I probably need to restart the server at some point, but that causes its own issues, and might not fix everything. But I'll keep looking.

Is there a reason why it's about 75% faster on my phone (android) compared to laptop (windows 10/chrome)?

I couldn't log in the past days, it always gave me a sort of error...(not password or anything, just with loading the whole forum..)

 

Has something happened to other people?

Been having the same troubles lately...  Just seems to take forever to load anything here these days...  My guess is that it's conflicting with the adblocking software that I have installed...:-)

While there are problems with speed at the moment, you're right that your ad-blocker could be making it worse for you.

You could always turn off it for this site, @Billy Rhythm. The ads give Joe a bit of income to help with the running costs of the site. I use an ad-blocker everywhere but here as a show of appreciation for all of Joe's hard work. It may not be much, but every penny helps.

For more anecdotal evidence, I just got a new iPad Pro, and it is a screamer. Everything processes and resolves much more quickly than my old machine...except the Forum. It is better than on my old worn out iPad, but still noticeably slower than most everything else on the Web.

I say in speeches that a plausible mission of artists is to make people appreciate being alive at least a little bit. I am then asked if I know of any artists who pulled that off. I reply, 'The Beatles did'.

I was beginning to wonder if I was the only one; but since my system is relatively less advanced, I thought it must be my computer.
