    I'm not sure if this is related, but for those who are having speed issues, what kind of connection do you have?

    We recently got DSL for one of our computers, and that absolutely flies compared with our old computer (which I am using now, and by the way the speed seems fine) which is still on dial-up.

    Just curious, because no one has mentioned what kind of connection they have when talking about site "problems".

    I've also noticed that recently, more and more websites are going with a lot of extra graphics / banners / ads, which I am assuming (besides $) is because more and more people are starting to have "high-speed" connections.

    Nah, it doesnt have much to do with your speed.
    I got dialup and sometimes LS is very speedy and then the next minute it is slow/freezes/oops window. Just sporadic. This morning I replied to a post a couple of time and it seemed like forever before it went through. But then the next time I replied it went through fast. I click on the link to get back to the main and it is fast at that or sometimes slow.
    It would be slow most of the time if it was the connection you use.
    I just cant justify spending 50$ a month for high speed to look up porn and play on a lawn forum(and a little bit more than that) LOL
    I am not complaining. I also understand with this type of forum the owner doesnt need to spend a fortune over powering the place.
    Just supplying info to the tech on how LS is working for me. The more input, the better he is able to diagnose the problem if there is one.

    Correct, we don't need a better server ..... it has the highest quality components installed..... not better, but prolly more of something.. (cpu, ram, raid... ??)

    moparts has lots of good info .... but, I don't see how you could think that their forum would have the server load like lawnsite.com ... lawnsite's off-topic forum almost has as many posts as their entire board post total.

    I would like to suggest to people to use their word processors, such as MS Word, for posting. Use the spell check and then when through writing your post just copy, not cut, the text over to the Post Reply box. If something happens online and your reply gets sent to never never land, you will still have a copy on your word processor. It could save you some anguish and it surely makes sense if you spend a lot of time typing.

    you don't have to do that necessarily. just highlight everything you wrote and hit control - c (copy) and then submit it, if something happens you can just hit control - v (paste) and be on your way
