Site speed

What a pleasure to use this site today. Pages load and refresh fast and considering it's a Friday it looks as Towers have nailed the gremlins. I had to check my internet speed in case my ISP had upgraded me without my knowing (I wish). Great work. IE10 with no ad-blocker.

Wish I could say the same.

No matter where I go on the site I get the "Update your profile" screen.

It's a devil trying to work around it.

BSOD, that's a puzzle to me. PCA hasn't been this fast for me for a while. I use IE 10 but also Spywareblaster. That might make a difference? No longer get the long running script issue.

Should have added that for a while I got email notifications for posts replies but that now has stopped again.

I have been on and off the site most of the day. At times it seems to be running rather slow with 'waiting for pca advisor' or 'server overload' with error email message sent to webmaster.

The last picture from BSOD, was similar to what I was getting the other day, a couple of times. That was with Google Chrome, which I find the best browser for this website!.

Also use spyware blaster.

When I'm on my mac, (with chrome), I'm hardly ever noticing any slowness, but on my iPhone (what I'm on 90% the time of being online), it is painfully slow on loading.
