Or the server needs oiling. Haven’t been able to get on for a few days. I’ve been lost and relegated to watching the oil leak.

FireFox takes forever and ever; IE is very very slow. Any PC gurus know why and what we can do????

My pages load in a few seconds. Seems a little slow, but nowhere near the week or two page load times you’re experiencing! That’s series.

It’s been loading extremely slow since FR was brought back on line yesterday.

I along with others trying to log on couldn't get on to the Free Republic site the entire day Saturday and had experienced the same problem you've expressed. I did see a post that explained the slowdown due to Free Republic switching to a new IP #.
You might want to do a keyword search using +New + IP #, see what you find.
I don't experience the downloading problems anymore.

I could not get on all day yesterday.

it must be a preemptive strike by the zer0bambam regime getting ready to shut down the web as soon as the doooooshbags in congress pass that bill.

There is a new IP address. It takes 16-24 hours to populate routing tables all over the place. In addition, clear your cache so your comp doesn’t go looking for the old IP address.

Ok, the hamster died.

Their server is in Kalifornia and is, hence, over-taxed...;^)

Seems to be fine with me. In fact, my posts are showing up as soon as I hit the post button, where over the last few weeks, it was delayed in showing up in the thread.... Just from my uneducated view point.

I think you're right! That was the thread I was on when FR went down at 2:45 am Sunday! He just wasn't getting the respect he deserves!
