Yeah, it takes about a minute to load a page... I'm on my phone though, so I don't know if that would make it worse... I'm thinkin it is the forum though, because I just checked Kijiii and was working great, so its not a problem on my end...

Yup. Stopped using I.E. and using Firefox, and pages within the forum take like 17 1/2 years (exaggeration) to load. Ain't just you Boss.

Being fairly new here RR you wouldn't have experienced this before, but it's usually indicative of much worse to come when the forum starts to lag like this.
