    1980's internet speed and I was booted off twice trying to post this.. it is starting to really suck. The site is almost to slow to use right now..

    P.s. I am not trying to be critical just passing on info... I enjoy the site and don't begrudge change...but it needs to work.

    it must be the 367 advertisements they have on every page now; it's so annoying I barely ever come here anymore.

    This is a known issue with our hosting provider and we plan on switching to a new service shortly. Thanks for your patience.

    Like Mike said, we will be switching as soon as I find a suitable host.

    In the mean time I have unpublished two of the ads to cut down on page load time until we get the site back firing on all cylinders.

    Yes, it seems too busy, too many flashing and graphics. I will try to hang tough till it improves and I know the owners are likely getting some nice income.. can't blame YA.. as I contribute "ZERO" financially to your site. But my time is precious also..best

    Thanks guys for your hard work. I know how much of a pain it can be. I also work in I.T. for Sharp Health Care, and man the second something doesn't work right, they are on the phone and not too nice all the time.

    Man, I haven't had any speed problems. Sure, it's slightly slower than the old site, but no where near unusable.

    We selected a new hosting provider and purchased a plan today. All that's left do to is transfer over the files and keep our fingers crossed. I think it will be a noticeable improvement. B)
