    Why\'s this board so slow, I even have a cable modem!

    Where's this site (mainly the forum) hosted? I have a cable modem at home and I seam to notice that the message board is extremely slow, and not just some of the time, all of the time.

    What would be causing the slowness of a message board like this? It's nothing to do with it's size, I have a message board that I admin on (I own it too) and it's much faster than this and probably receives as many, if not more, traffic than this one does.

    <a target="_blank" href=http://forums.fastcougar.com>http://forums.fastcougar.com</a>

    Would it have to do with the message board software that's being used?

    I've noticed the odd day that is slower than normal, but today everything is loading up pretty quickly for me......

    Most of the problem is with my host lately and add to the problem of 1.6 million page views per month as well as some of the php scripts need a little tweaking. I'm just about at the point where I need to switch over to a dedicated server but need to bring in a little more revenue first. As the site grows I will try to keep up with things but my time is limited as well.

    Please let me know if you or anyone else ever needs development/design assistance. That is what I do for a living as well.
