during the past 48 hours, it's the slowest i can remember in a long time...that is, on the rare occasion that the pages even load at all.

anyone else having issues? not that i'll be able to read the responses...it took me nearly 5 minutes and about 10 failed attempts just to get to this page. now let's see if i can get it to post...

  1. This happened to me too! It's extremely extremely slow and frustrating. In fact to post this response it took a good 2 minute before the reply box popped up.

    1. I'm having the same problems too! I'm glad to know that it's not my online connection that's the problem. What's going on?!

          This site has become unusable and is destined to die out if it doesn't dramatically improve very quickly. A "new look" will not help if nobody can see it because the pages won't load.

        2. Add me to the list. I was thinking of just removing it from my bookmarks, just too frustrating.

          1. Guess I'm lucky. It only took 90 seconds for this page to load.

            C'mon, guys, this is getting intolerable.

              You must be lucky, alanbarnes... it took me all of 2 minutes to be able to post this.....
              and pages are taking a very long time to open. Good night all....

            2. AAAAAAARRRRGGGGH!

              1. I've been opening a few chow pages at a time while i wait for each of them to load...i am just too impatient to sit there looking at the green bars load...sometimes when i click on the pages to see if they're open yet, i find they never loaded & instead i have an error message on my page. Grrr...

                1. pleeeeeeeeeze, chow, upgrade your servers! please, pretty please with chow on top!!
