Is Trainboard action very slow for all? Or is it on my end only?

    Hi. I'd taken a 6 Mo. sabbatical from Tboard and returned recently. Nearly every time I post or begin a thread it doesn't soon get published and I wind up waiting sometimes 5 or more minutes. I wind up hitting "create message" again. Then I wait and wait. Then several times now post is duplicated on the page. I've even asked moderators to delete one of the two dupes and that doesn't get done either. Is this happening to everyone, or just me ? It might even happen when I enter this very post.

    Doesn't seem slow to me. Most of my posts show up in the matter of 2-10 seconds and I don't have a very fast internet connection.

    Edited:
    This posted in less than 2 seconds.

    Slow in your computer loading our pages? Or slow insofar as activity?

    If the former, many possibilities. ISP, computer issues, the 'Net itself between you and our servers.....

    I have been using FF for a while. Have found some issues. For one, it is not the safe OS many believe. I still get ATTEMPTED hacks, pop-ups, etc. And yes, before anyone jumps me, I keep caches flushed, versions updated, etc. The past couple of months I have encountered more and more "Tab Crashed" episodes from FF. I do send in the "Reports", but it is happened with ever increasing frequency. :mad:

    Slow in computer loading your pages..I go to 'Support'. Then I'll click mine or one of your entries. Page goes to a completely blank page (except my bookmarks are there at top). Page stays blank and nothing happens. Also, while typing this, here, every so often the 'space bar' acts like the 'shift bar' and page (this page) flies upward out of this box to the bottom of this page where it says "About TrainBoard" and have to scroll back to this box to continue.

    Ken, I agree with your comments about FF. but it works better for me on TB than IE Vista.
    I'm not that savvy about how to manage my computer, but I expect a good flushing of the cache would be beneficial as I've never done it. How would I do that, and what would be the expected reaction(s) on my 'puter after?
    Thanks. :)

    For FF, go to page top, left. Click on the "History" tab. Select "clear History". For a far more through cleaning, try using "CCleaner."

    Thanks, Ken. I'll give that a try.
