    Any users/tech-types of F** out there who can help??

    I'm trying to log on to F**, and it is impossibly slow. Same issue I had with FSC the other day. A fix was suggested, and it worked very well, -- I added something to my hosts file and everything loaded fine.

    I'm running IE which is likely my first mistake. I know I should switch to firefox, but not right now.

    Any suggestions on how I can load the pages faster???

    thank you very much

    Are you using the secure page?

    Although it has slowed down again this week, it was really fast there for a while.

    It has always been slow for me. Not painfully slow or aggravating, but slow.

    I assume its a coding issue or script issue and not something you can fix.

    Just use https:// and you should be good.

    @Skizo: The site used to be slow because there was a coding error but that was fixed some time ago.

    It was slow last month, last week, yesterday, and 5 minutes ago.

    It's always slow.

    ''Most of you have probably noticed the massive speed increase on site. We made a few code adjustments that should completely eliminate that issue from now on. To celebrate our boost........''

    Most of the slowness has to do with the location. The server is hosted in Asia, which means that there are more hops than an EU or US based server. The server does use page compression to speed delivery, but ultimately the distance the packets have to travel, including acknowledgements, will have a major effect on speed.
