Recently this site has slowed down to a crawl,I'm on ntl's 600k service and everything else loads quick enough except for this site.
I know its a popular site but nobody else appears to mention its lack of speed.
Any tips on how to speed things up apart from the usual clearing caches etc.

wonder what it is, everything used to be A1,
I'm no expert but i like to think of my self as semi-computer literate at least.
Can't figure this one out though.

I've got used to it. Starts off in the morning at the speed of light by 6pm it's so slow I can go and make a cup of tea in the time it takes to load a page and, as you say, it's only this site.

I usually shut it down mid afternoon as I'm not prepared to wait that long for nothing to happen.

I'm on BT broadband.

Everything fine.

I am on 56K modem, & it's OK just now but it does sometimes vary. I put it down to either the number of connections running on the site, or how busy the ISP is.

Painfully slow at peak times, which seem to be around 7:00 pm and sometimes during the afternoon. Try the PC Plus Forum for a change. PCW forum is also painfully slow, but not very busy.

Been on and off this site since 9:00am this morning on BT Openworld which is connecting at either 44Kbps or 45.2Kbps and takes no longer than 10 seconds to load each page even after clearing out my Temporary Files (which I do like everyday when I'm bored!)
