Is it my computer? It seems to me that the ECN board has been running real slow the past few times I have been on it. I don't know if it is the board or my PC or my internet wiring. Since Sandy, there are temporary cable wiring out on the poles.

It's fine on my end. I wouldn't hesitate to blame the cable co. temporaries (which I guarantee will be there a year from now!).

Is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?

Slow here too.
It has been for a while off and on. I don't really see a pattern.(time of day, days of the week etc)

I am guessing it is just servers some place along the way that are loaded up. I see a few other sites that are slow and others are always OK.

Slow and a plug-in running in the background crashes.

I spoke too soon, running slow on my end now too.

I did a Visual Route Server trace route to the home page and it came back showing errors near the last node so it may be something in the network.

OK, you computer savy guys are way out of my league. My laptop has been slow...& a lot of error msgs. Here, AOL & Email.

But, the PC on my office (work) network has been crashing three+ times a day. IT guy is scratching his......

I think I have issues with IE at the house, I'm going to start using Google Chrome.

I am using Firefox. That is the engine behind Google Chrome, supposedly without the spying.

I left MSFT and went with Linux Mint -- it's free as a Web download.

Within Mint you have Libre Office -- basically a clone of MSFT -- it's free.

And it has Opera -- which is out of Norway. Chrome is an immitation of Opera. Both are cloud oriented.

And it has Firefox.

Some parts are clunky -- others are sweet.

It does have a compelling price level -- ZERO.

I have found that Firefox under Linux Mint is less buggy than just about everything I've tried.

It still doesn't stop the s l o w s.

I tweaked a few things. Let's see if it's any better.
