    Just doing a check to see if others are having periodic problems loggin on, hang ups between pages or posts, or other issues. I'm encountering quite a few and am wondering if it is at my end.

    Could be a number of factors involved, but it has been okay for me so far.

    Yeah, I had problems last week; I'm running T1, so speed definitely isn't the issue. A few times I'd try open a thread and I'd get a blank screen (just the brown background motif).

    Also running on T1 and every now and again it times out a lot, a couple of refreshes later it comes back 'alive'. There is a new vBulletin update out (at least I have seen some forums with it - WW2Talk). Maybe applying it would help some of the problems people are having - wouldn't think so but anyway.

    Log in, and bookmark the forum page after logging in. You'll never have to sign in again, which'll eliminate the login issues.

    Other than being a trifle slow, at times, I have not has any issues. I'm on all
    day long, at work, and just usually keep the forum minimized. What few
    problems I have had are attributed to my system/ISP.
